About Colleen

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I'm Colleen and have grown up taking care of pets for my family and others! I grew up around Springer Spaniels and currently live with my King Charles Spaniel, Murphy, who is 7+ years old. He's a very mellow dog and loves to meet new friends!

UPDATE - I've recently started a new full time job, so I'm no longer as available as I once was. But I'd love to try and help out if you're in need of a dog sitter on the weekends!

I live in a cozy apartment in Old Town where Murphy spends his days lounging on the couch and looking out the windows. My building has a fully enclosed dog run, but I prefer to take Murphy out for walks around the neighborhood several times a day. I also love to take Murphy to the local park and throw the ball with him and take long walks to explore our new city.

Restrictions: I do not have a car, but if necessary, I could uber to pick up your buddy and bring him to my place! Also, my building does have some restrictions on dog breeds. In addition, I do prefer to have a Meet and Greet before confirming all bookings, and will only accept dogs who are fully vaccinated and spayed/neutered.

Colleen and her pup, Murphy, live in a quite one bedroom apartment of a dog-friendly high rise in the Old Town neighborhood. The building has a 15-minute loading zone, making drop-offs and pick-ups a breeze. Colleen’s building also has a small dog run which is perfect for late night potty breaks or even a quick game of fetch.

You and your pup will become instant friends with Murphy who is friendly and mellow guy. During your pup's stay, he or she will have plenty of space to lounge around, gaze out of the windows, and play!

Colleen grew up caring for dogs and is a responsible dog owner. She can host adult and senior dogs up to 40 pounds. She can also take your dog on several walks a day to enjoy the weather, explore the neighborhood, and sniff out the local park!

Colleen will give your dog all the love, attention, and exercise needed for a safe and enjoyable Vacay!

Colleen was very accommodating to my requests and to my dogs needs! I knew they were in good hands while i was away.
Colleen was an awesome babysitter for my 3 month old puppy! She was super accommodating leading up to the stay, arranged a meet and greet with Banks beforehand, and sent me updates throughout the day. I felt extremely comfortable throughout the whole process and will definitely use her again!

Colleen was an incredible dog sitter for our little dog, Bjorn! As we arranged his stay she was conscientious, asked all the right questions and was a prompt communicator. She and her pup Murphy exceeded expectations during Bjorn's stay. She send us lots of updates and it was clear that she really provided great care for him during his stay. Murphy even shared his chair with Bjorn - talk about a gentleman :). Highly recommended.

Colleen was very easy to work with, responsible, and super flexible. We had to make some last minute changes to our reservation and she was very accommodating. Our dog does not want to go outside when it's raining, and she was able to adjust the dog walking time to avoid the rain. She also sent me a cute picture of our dog at the end of the walk.

Talulah had a great vacay with Colleen and Murphy! We received daily updates complete with pictures. Colleen made us feel very comfortable leaving our pup with her and she was very flexible with the drop off and pick up! Talulah came home happy and tired!
