We’ve been working with Colleen for 6 months now and she is seriously the best. So responsible and great with our pup. We can truly relax when Colleen is sitting our pup because we know we can trust her. We feel so lucky to be one of her clients!
Colleen is incredible! We look forward to working with her as our pup grows :)
Colleen is AMAZING. Incredibly responsible, thoughtful, and professional. We could not have been happier with our sitting experiences and trust her entirely with our fur baby. I feel lucky to have found her on Rover.com and I am sure our little guy Ellis looks forward to the next time he sees his friend Colleen!
Caretaker for people AND pups!
Hi, I'm Colleen! I'm a caretaker for both people AND dogs: I am studying to be a doctor at Jefferson's medical school, and I spend a lot of my out-of-class time playing with pups! I've been a successful dog-walker and sitter in Center City for a few months now, but my experience goes all the way back to my childhood. As a child, I volunteered at the local dog shelter every weekend until I ~finally~ ...
What Colleen would like to know about your dog
I love all types of dogs, no matter the size or breed! I'm willing to meet any dog, and so far I've gotten along well with every pup I've met. Sometimes, if they’re skittish, it just takes time and treats for them to get comfortable. Before we meet, I'd love to know your dog's age, breed, behavior around other dogs, behavior towards children, any health conditions or injuries, any dietary restrictions, and any triggers that upset your dog. I'd also love to know any special commands you use with your pup so I can use them too! We’ll make sure that your pup is comfortable around me by the end of the meet-and-greet so that we know I’m a good fit for them.
I'll be prompt to arrive, and will adhere to their feeding/potty schedules. I'm great at following detailed care instructions, and I'm always open to any special requests you have for your pup and me. Please don't hesitate to communicate them to me! I want the best experience possible for both you and your dog.
