Colleen took care of our 2 dogs for 10 days in Feb. When we returned the house was very clean and the dogs were happy as can be. She sent daily photos and updates, much appreciated.
The process from beginning to end was easy as can be, Colleen responded immediately.
Would definitely recommend Colleen; we’ll be using her again!

Did a great job taking pictures when she came to check on the pups. The dogs always seemed happy and contented after her visit. Would book again in a heartbeat.

Caring former vet tech assistant

I grew up with dogs and cats as family. I worked as a veterinary technician assistant and I've been a private petsitter since I was 16 years old.

I understand the importance of giving medication like insulin on time and I know what it's like to love and care for a pet with special needs. I currently live in ...

What Colleen would like to know about your dog

Please let me know what your dog needs from my time with them and I'll make sure that their needs are met. Tell me about your dog's personality and their preferences so I can keep them as relaxed and happy as possible. For example, if they are afraid of thunderstorms, let me know so I can anticipate their anxiety. If they always snuggle with you at a certain time, tell me about that so I can help keep their routine stable.
