I am a student at Portland State and interning at the Dep. of Education in Salem so my current availability ...

What Kristen would like to know about your dog

Of course, I like to get a feel of a dogs temperament prior to petsitting, but mostly as long as I know the basic health history and important facts for Fido we're all set to go. :') While I don't have a breed preference, I am especially fond of large breeds!

When Kristen watches your pet

I really enjoy taking walks with pups, snuggling up with a good book, going on hiking adventures and throwing the ball around for as long as they can keep up!
