Kersten was an absolute dream with our pets. We had a cat unexpectedly ill and she ran to the vet and got meds, and made sure everyone was safe and comfortable. A great communicator too. We will definitely ask Kersten to house sit again.

Kerstin is an absolute God-send. She stayed in our home to take care of our pets for 11 days, and she could not have done a more perfect job. She kept us updated everyday with sweet, detailed notes, and she managed all of the little idiosyncrasies of our pets and kept them so happy. She is the ONLY per/house sitter we will ever use. Can't express how much we love and appreciate her.

Kerstin was an incredible dog/house sitter for us. As so many have written, we have never used a service before and were very concerned about using one. We feel very fortunate to have found Kerstin as she was a very detail-oriented, thorough and kind individual and we tremendously appreciate all of her efforts with Mario (and keeping our house so nice as well). She always responded to my many inquiry texts, and always provided ...

Semi-Retired...Flexible Schedule

I have found that dogs prefer to be in their own envirement when their owner's are away. I first became a dog sitter for my 2 grandpups, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels a boy and a girl. My daughter may be the most demaning, pickiest, list of rules person in the world. Her dogs are her children and I know yours are too.

So please if you feel bad about leaving them, if you have a ...

What Kerstin would like to know about your dog

Please be honest with anything. If your dog has aggressive tendencies towards strangers in your house, let me know maybe we meet ahead of time, build a rapport.
If it stresses your dog when you leave the house for the day, let me know. I can feed your dog its meal as I leave as a distraction or do what you prefer.

Let me know what your dog likes, loves, hates, scared of, etc.

When Kerstin watches your pet

Wherever the owner specifies. Whether its a walk in the neighborhood (if in safe/low traffic area), or if there is a nearby area we can go. I will always walk the dog on the leash.
If your pup prefers to play in your background we can do that. If it's fenced in, I can throw frisbee, ball or whatever your pup enjoys.
If the weather is really bad and you prefer them not playing outside in inclement weather, we can quickly go out for potty and then play inside. Tug of war, fetch with a soft animal also are activities that can make pups tired!

Most of my bookings are pup sitting in owner's home. Your absence can cause a pup stress but by being in their home (as opposed to alone or in a kennel) can put them at ease. They like the companionship, someone to snuggle and watch tv with.
