About Ashley

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I am a responsible, 30 year old animal lover. I have a degree in Psychology, during which I studied learning and motivation in animals. I am currently attending a nutrition school online so my work hours are extremely flexible. I sadly lost my own little companion, Oreo, 4 years ago. My apartment doesn't allow dogs but I need them in my life to feel fulfilled. Nothing lifts your mood or makes a house a home like a dog!
I promise to treat your dog like my own, the way I would've wanted my dog to be treated if I hired someone. They are family members not just pets. If I can help your dog feel a little less lonely during the day or night then I'm there! If they need fresh air and exercise then I'm there for that too!
I am also very knowledgeable about freshwater fish, especially tropical. I have owned many types of fish and have humanely bred Cichlids and raised the fry into adulthood. I can help care for fry, do tank cleaning and assess for possible illness. I will fish sit for your vacations or do check-ins, automatic feeders can malfunction. Filters, heaters and water levels should be monitored and an illness could be caught early.
FYI, I'm a non-smoker.

It is important we are on the same page before agreeing to work together. The following information is good to know so you can decide upfront if my services are a fit before we get to know each other. I feel this information is a good filter for you to save time when searching for prospective doggie caregivers. I hope this answers some FAQs for you. : )

*Important information to be agreed upon prior to services rendered (please read below)*

Service rates are per dog. Multiple dogs will cost extra. We can work out a group rate, for example, $15 per dog could be $25 for two, $35 for three, $40 for four, etc. Rates and services are subject to change. I offer customized rates for all services as I see fit. When combining multiple services, I am open to negotiating a price. For example, I charge a discounted 30 minute walking rate of $5/day, if you want daily walks included during an overnight sit. If you are outside of my service area we can discuss a custom quote with gas factored into the price. Meet and Greets will cost the same as a home visit(day), $15 (Meet and Greets & Home Visits(Day) = 30 minutes). All agreed upon quotes need to be paid up front before any services are rendered. For my own security, my schedule (date, time and address of client) are given to a trusted third party before scheduled date of service. This information will be kept completely confidential.

-If you agree to the above items, send a detailed message through this site and I will reply with a custom quote. Mentioning that you have read this 'disclaimer' is helpful so I know you have read and are comfortable with my terms Thank you for taking the time to review the tedious 'fine print' : )
Please feel free to inquire with any questions or concerns you may have. I want you to be comfortable with my services.

I wish you the best of luck finding the perfect fit for all your dog care needs. I hope I can accommadate most things but if not I want your dog to be happy with whomever you choose, bottom line. Happy animals are what matter most at the end of the day!

Ashley walked my dog for several years, when my physical capabilities didn't allow me to, as often as i would have liked. She was nice enough to take Shadow to his favorite spot, which was playing fetch at a nearby lake, even though it meant she would likely get wet. My sweet dog was always so happy to see her.
I would highly recommend Ashley's services. She is responsible, prompt, courteous and very trustworthy.

For several years, Ashley has not only taken care of our beloved dogs ( up to three at a time ), but has left her own home and stayed at ours, so our babies would not be traumatized. Upon observing the interaction between her and our pets,it was quite obvious that they felt absolutely, safe and comfortable in her company. There's a saying that dogs are a good judge of character, and now I know this to be absolutely true!

Ashley is intelligent, conscientious, caring, diligent and most importantly, she will love and responsibly take care of your pet as if it were her own. Anything out of the normal behavior will be immediately noticed and taken care of, whatever that would entail. Our " Sookie Baby " was aging and needed medication and extra attention.....I was reluctant to even leave her; but when we returned, Sookie seemed to be in better health! Ashley researched anything and everything and gave me valuable advise about helpful nutrition that would help with her Baby's condition!

There is nothing that she wouldn't do to make sure your pet is happy and healthy. I am passionate about the welfare of animals of any kind; and I think there is an extra sense when you meet another. She sincerely cares.

I can honestly say knowing Ashley was with our cherished babies in our absence, gave us complete peace of mind, and I would unequivocally recommend her to care for yours.

However, I will warn you, your babies may want to leave with her when she goes home!

Your truly

Ashley watched our Boston Terrier, Pepper during our 8 day trip. She was very professional from our first meet and greet, asking all the right questions and reassuring us that Pepper would be well taken care of. Our dog can be very hesitant around new people and Ashley was very patient. They ended up getting along great! She updated us daily with texts and pictures which helped being away from our puppy for the first time. We are looking forward to booking Ashley again and would highly recommend her for pet sitting.
We are so happy to have found Ashley. You can tell she loves dogs and our pup loves going for walks with her. Ashley was on time and didn't hesitate to ask questions about our dog to ensure she could give him a walk similar to what he is used to. Our pup isn't a fan of change generally, but he loved Ashley as soon as he met her. We would definitely recommend Ashley's services.
Ashley was punctual and an experienced dog walker. Asked all the right questions before she took him and, judging by his reaction, they had a great time.
