About Courtney

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Courtney and I am a 25 year old second year vet student at Iowa State University. I am from Charlottesville, Va and was so sad to leave my pet sitting clients there! I have over a decade of pet sitting experience, including stay in the owners' home and have the pets come to me, as well as dog walking and drop in visits. Prior to starting vet school I was a veterinary assistant for over 7 years, so I am proficient at medications, injections, post-surgical care, and more. I also fostered a dog for an elderly owner for many months. As your sitter, I will make sure you animal is not only fed and watered, but that they get a good walk and lots of cuddles! I have a dog that is my shadow, so I am willing to work with those that just aren't sure of a new person. I am very flexible, punctual, caring, and I just love animals! Since I have two dogs of my own, I am unfortunately unable to provide overnight stays unless my dogs are able to come with or the house is very close to mine. Please ask any questions!

We had a last-minute need for a dog sitter and Courtney came through for us. Excellent communication before we arrived in Ames and continued throughout the weekend. Fun to have the opportunity for our dog to play with other two dogs and a little kitten. Courtney was flexible with our drop-off and pick-up time which we appreciated. Knowing that she was a vet student was an added benefit. Appreciated Courtney's caring for our dog and would ask again in the future.

Courtney is very easy to work with and responsive! My two golden retrievers enjoy when she stays with them. She usually sends a pic during her stay which helps with missing them! She has watched the dogs 4-5 times now, twice for overnight stays at my house - pet and house sitting and a few times just checking in and walking them. I definitely recommend her!

Louie had a great week long visit to stay with Courtney! She was very responsive and accommodating from the get-go and very patient working with our Louie who gets nervous and has trouble adjusting to new settings! She sent pictures every day and took him for walks often. He seemed very comfortable and happy with his stay and we were too! I would absolutely recommend Courtney and hope to use her again in the near future.
