About this pro

Hi - My name is Kristen.  I would be honored to take care of your pets during your vacation !!  It's my mindset to entertain your pets during your absence.  They will miss you terribly !  It's my hope to keep your pet happy while staying in your home.  I have 2 cats at my own house, so, I really would prefer to come to yours.  That way, there are fewer anxieties for all of us.  

I love animals, especially cats and dogs  But,  what if you have other pets ?  We can figure things out together. 

Pets and strays need shelter, food, water and of course love.  I enjoy being a part of their world.  Doggies also need activities outside.  I don't mind, and if it's ok with the pet parents, I would love taking your dog/s out for a walk, no matter the weather.  

I can wash your dog, too.  But I have minimal grooming expertise.  As an example, I washed my own dog when she rolled in something stinky.  She had short fur, so, it was pretty manageable.  I don't mind washing long haired dogs, but I'm not ready for bows yet !

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Mostly, I prefer to meet the person at their home.  This way, I can make sure where they live, and how long it will take me to get there.  

Also, I have the opportunity to see where you keep supplies for your pets.  We can talk about getting the mail, papers, whatever is important to my client.  

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am very experienced when it comes to taking care of pets.  I've done it since I was about 10 years old.  Open door, let dog out.  Open door, let dog in !!  Oh yeah !!  🙂

ive helped my Mom with her sick cats. And one dog had cancer.  Sometimes, pets just want to cuddle.  I'm good with these things.  A

Also, if you are out of town, I can mow the grass, bring in the paper, get the mail, and/or water the plants, indoor & outdoor.  I can also give pills to your cat or dog.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My rates are

$20  for 1 pet a day.  Less than 12 hours.  

$5 for each pet after the first one.  

$35 if I need to stay overnight - between 18-24 hours.  Flat fee.

How did you get started in this business?

Like most kids, I played with neighbors' pets.  I'm an animal lover, and I finally went to SICSA, for a doggie to love - who rescued who ??  Definitely Honey chose me.  She was the only dog there not barking.  True love !!  

What types of customers have you worked with?

I have only had good experiences with pet owners.  Most of my clients have been doggie parents.  Their dogs are their children !!  They throw a party each year for their doggies birthdays !!  Cat parents like to tell me about their cats hiding places.
