Kirsten did a fantastic job! She came over for a meet and greet only a couple days after we adopted a second dog, we had no routine or anything specific to tell her about our dogs. She checked in a couple times before our trip and became very familiar with the dogs and their new routine as we all got settled. She gave them all the attention they could have ever wanted and we are ...

Kristin was wonderful. Very communicative and great with my animals. She was even able to get close to my cat who hates everyone.

Kirsten did such a great job watching our pets and our house while we were out of the country! She sent regular updates and pictures and we knew that our pups and cat were so happy to have her there! We would absolutely book her again to take care of our family!

Thank you, Sherilyn - I had so much fun with Annabelle, Fitz and Tucker! Hope you had an amazing time traveling!

The Best Selfie is a Pet Selfie

I will send you photos and videos whenever I can of your dog and whatever we are doing together! I grew up with two Shitzus, a Lhasa Apso, two cats, a bunny, and a guinea pig - a mini zoo, and I loved it! I currently have a cat who I found as a stray and have adopted - her name is Luce after one of my favorite philosophers (yes, I'm that person). My current living situation ...

What Kirsten would like to know about your dog

I like to know as much as you feel comfortable sharing with me. I actually prefer to meet you and your dog before I begin pet sitting for you to make sure they feel comfortable with me. Then I like to review your routines with you so that I can care for them as well as possible while you are away. Some questions I like to ask are: How often do they get treats? Are they allowed on the furniture? What are mealtimes like? Are there any special bedtime/morning rituals? Do they like to snuggle or are they more stoic? What are their favorite things to do? How do they handle loud noises - thunder, sirens, fireworks? Are they prone to accidents? Any medications? Who is their primary vet? Who do you see for emergencies? Are they runners/do they have a tendency to slip from their collars on walks?

I love all breeds - if you have a dog who weighs more than 100lbs. and is a very enthusiastic walker, I may have a little trouble controlling them on walks - so just give me a heads up.

When Kirsten watches your pet

I'm not a runner, but I love long walks and would be happy to take your pup to a dog park if you like - I know Ann Morrison Park allows some off-leash seasons where dogs can socialize and run around together (if you are comfortable with your dog's off-leash training). I also love spending time in the foothills - we can always go for a hike.
