This was Vanessa’s last stay with us. We are moving and so incredibly sad to not have her watch our pets anymore. She goes above and beyond to make sure our pets are happy and cared for. She messages me throughout the visit giving me so many updates on what’s she’s doing and how our pets are. She sends so many wonderful pictures as well. We are going to miss her so ...

What Vanessa would like to know about your dog

I'm a huge fan of Shelties and Collies but I love all dogs. I am willing to work with protective breeds and large dogs at your home. I am also a cat lover and understand the finer things in life like cat nip and feathers on strings. I’ll get your kitty up and moving or provide a warm lap :)

When Vanessa watches your pet

I love to walk. That’s how I got started with Rover! I love to check out the neighborhoods and parks in C-U. All walks are individually tailored and your dog will get what they need most- whether that is a solid jog, a lazy stroll, or a whole lot of throw the ball!

Kitties are finicky folks. I like to talk with each owner to find out what your kitties are like. Are they shy? Hyper? Lap cats? I will make your kitty feel happy and safe whatever their needs.
