About Kristin

32 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey I'm Kristin

just moved to Ottawa from Vancouver. I had a great dog sitting business going in Van but I've moved to Ottawa for my career.

A bit about me I've had medium sized dogs all my life. My border collie "sota" passed away peacefully in September 2015 after 16 lovely years. I miss her companionship dearly.

I've never met a dog that didn't like me. I was recently in Thailand where I volunteered at an elephant, dog and cat sanctuary for 3 mos. It was a very rewarding experience.

Let me take care of your pet when you are away. I am an active person and I live alone so your dog would have primo attention.

I can also sit your pet in your home depending on where you live as I'd rather not commute to work/downtown.

I have a vehicle for trips to Conroy pit if your dog is down or maybe you can enlighten me on some other dog parks as I've been away from ottawa since 2004. :)

Copper had a wonderful time with Kristin during my 3 weeks away. She was sure to check in frequently with updates and photos of all their trips to the park. Copper is already looking forward to his next visit!
Kristin was very responsive during the booking process. My dog had a fantastic time. I would definitely book Kristin again.
We highly recommend Kristin as a dog sitter. It was the first time we used dogvac's services and Kristin put our minds at ease upon our first meeting. She met with us twice before we went away to ensure that our dog was comfortable with her. When we returned home after 2 weeks, our dog was looking great and did not suffer from separation anxiety. Also, as a bonus the house was clean, plants watered and the lawn was mowed!
