Kirsten stepped in when our regular sitter was gone to watch our five month old puppy. She did a drop in visit and took her for a walk and played with her for a little while at our place when we were at work. She was very trustworthy and sweet with our puppy. We would definitely recommend her!

I have known Kirsten for nearly 15 years. She is a compassionate individual with several years of childcare and pet care experience. We both served as summertime nannies for our respective neighbors (during our late teens and early twenties), and I was able to observe her natural abilities to care for others (both children and dogs).

Your Lakeview Dog Lover and Walker

I am excellent with all sizes of dogs. I understand the importance of adhering to each dogs emotional and personality needs when walking in the community. I will be able to ensure that on walks I will take the upmost care of the dog's health and wellbeing, providing them with water during walks, picking up and disposing of waste, and respond to the pet’s medical conditions and dietary needs. I would love the opportunity ...

What Kirsten would like to know about your dog

I do not have an breed preferences! I have been raised with larger dogs, however I have babysat for a range of dog sizes. I would love to know any information that can provided about the pet before sitting. Having information on their personalities, allergies, how they interact with adults, children, and other animals is critical to ensure the safety of the dog. It is also will be important to understand the dogs feeding and bathroom schedule.

When Kirsten watches your pet

We will go on walks throughout the dogs neighborhood. If you as an owner allow I will play with their various toys in the house or if you have a backyard! There are many parks in Chicago that allow dogs and I want to ensure your dog receives that exercise they deserve and need to be happy and healthy.
