About this pro

I have been pet sitting and rescuing animals with my husband since 2009. I have watched over 30 dogs most of them I have on a regular basis. 

I am an animal truly I own 2 dogs and a cat of my own I treat all pets as I would my own. I do NOT have many rules for my pets besides no furniture in the living room they are allowed on my bed plus a huge dog bed in my bedroom. I do have a few crates if that's what the owner request when I'm gone or bedtime. My dogs play as much as they want either inside or outside in our full fenced in yard. 

All dogs are fed on a routine schedule between 6am to 8am and then 6pm to 11pm plus regular potty breaks. If I'm able to walk the dogs I will take them for a nice morning walk so they get exercise outside from the yard.

I'm not here to take your wallet I'm here to help families go on vacation or emergencies or work. I am insured by state farm as well.

I have been a rover pet sitter since 2013. My link is

    Betty is always available when I need her to watch my 2 small dogs. One of my dogs takes a little longer to warm up to people, and Betty is so understanding and works well with him. She makes my dogs feel right at home and spends lots of time with them.

    Betty is great! Very organized and so good with pups

How did you get started in this business?

I was rescuing animals and a guy drove by my home stopped and asked if my family could watch his dog for 3 weeks while he goes to Florida for his mom's surgery. Offered to pay $100. We explained that we rescued, fostered, and adopted our own. He said that was no problem. 

We said ok and that's when I found rover pet sitting and ever since my business has been growing.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Oct 6 to 9th I watched 3 beagles who belonged to a retired navy guy...i also watched a LG dog from a air force family as well with my 2 dogs and cat. 

The one thing that made me very happy was that they all had complete instructions written down for each dog so I never messed up when caring for each dog. 

I had 1 dog that was hand fed along with 7 pills she had a kidney disease. Another dog 1 pill morning n night plus all beagles ate differently. As for the LG dog he was in the process of changing foods and very picky so we had to work with feeding for about an hour. 

The thing that I enjoyed most was each dog became close to me before my husband and pets. I ended up sleeping with 3 beagles German shepherd blk lab blue nose pit...very crowded but ok

When the owners of the beagles stopped by for a visit they were so pleased. They could see that their dogs enjoyed my home.
