About Heather

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Heather, and I have been in the pet care industry for over 20 years. I have a passion for animals, and have worked with all types, sizes, and ages. After graduating with my BBA from Western Michigan University, I decided I wanted start my own business in pet care. I operate under my own LLC with insurance, and am a member of two Pet Sitting Organizations. Pet First Aid Certified through the American Red Cross, I have experience in special needs pets, administering medications, and foster/rescue dogs.

I currently own a rescued Siberian Husky named Keane who enjoys the company of other dogs and puppies! My apartment is rather large, with 3 bedrooms and plenty of space to play inside. I also have a Canary security camera, so everyone is always safe and monitored even if I am away. There are no children or roommates in the home, your dog(s) will be primarily in my own care. I do not have a fenced in yard, however, I have a small area to go outside on a lead, and I'm happy to take your dog for a walk around my complex, or even down to the lake! Your pet will undoubtedly will feel safe, secure, and loved in my care. I live very close to downtown Kalamazoo, and can take appointments on short notice. If you have any questions about me, my living space, my pet, or anything...feel free to message me! Look forward to hearing from you!

Heather (and Keane) were a perfect fit for our 10 year old Boxer, Tyson. She was very quick to respond and kept in touch with us as our drop off date came up. She suggested a meet and greet for Tyson and her dog Keane, which was a great idea and really left my wife and I with peace of mind that they would get along. Once we dropped off Tyson, we got several picture updates and messages on how things were going. We were gone for 7-days and instead of worrying about our dog, we felt comfortable that he was in good hands. Our dog can sometimes be a handful as he is very energetic and can be whiney but from what it seems, he was right at home with Heather and her dog Keane. When we picked Tyson he seemed almost sad to be leaving... I think he was truly on vacation at the same time as us. We will look to Heather again when we need someone to watch Tyson.

Sent us pictures and took good care of our husky.
Heather and Keane were great. Stella had so much fun and came home smelling better than when she was dropped off!
