About Sierra

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I have over 15 years of paid, professional animal care experience, during which I've provided reliable and excellent farm-sitting services, dog boarding and in-home care to hundreds of clients. I love walking dogs, playing, hiking, and working on respect/training issues as needed.

I specialize in equines and farm animal care, but have worked with a large variety of animals ranging from exotic birds, iguanas, tarantula, snakes to chinchillas, alpaca farms and donkeys.


***NOTE- AS OF SEPT 2016 I have moved from my amazing community in CO to Arizona! I am new to the area but have enormous amounts of experience all across the country and would be happy to share many excellent references. Please send me a message and we'll chat about options as I'm very flexible. THANKS! :) ***

I am happy to stay overnight with your animals in your home or just make several check in visits if you prefer, and have many great references available for you to contact. If you would like me to care for your home or farm, I am competent and happy to mow, weed, garden, feed wild birds, or do any other care needed for the property while you are away.

I have a lifetime of volunteer experience at Humane Societies and rescues helping dogs and horses to gain much needed exercise and skills to be adopted into a functional home, am pet first aid certified and equine emergency 1st aid/FEMA responder certified. I am also a member of Professional United Pet Sitters Assc.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss any questions about my rates or what I can do for you! I am open and experienced with longer extended stays as well.

Can't wait to meet you and your feathered, furry, slithery, and hooved family members!

Sierra took great care of our three dogs while we were on vacation and sent us regular photo updates during her stay. We would definitely recommend services.
Sierra did a fantastic job watching our three dogs and our cat. One of our dogs needed daily medical attention and she took great care of him.
She sent us pictures and updates during her stay and we felt at peace knowing that she was there to care for our pets.
Sierra is always quick to respond to texts/messages and so friendly and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend her for your pet sitting needs. We already have another pet sitting experience lined up for her!
Thank you Sierra for taking such good care of the pooches and Mia..having you with them made our little getaway that much more enjoyable.

We have two pretty needy dogs, and everything went fine when Sierra took care of them! The house was in great shape and the dogs were healthy and happy when we returned.
Sierra has done a wonderful job with our two German Shepherds and Bengal cat. They absolutely adore her and love that she can come to their home to visit them. Sierra takes pictures of her visits, her walks with the two dogs (both at once!) and is great with providing little updates each day. Sierra is also very flexible and reliable. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to have their fur babies cared for in the convenience of their own home!

Sierra watched my two pit bulls, one of which is extremely hyper and was wonderful with them. I had piece a mind going out of town and knowing they would be in great hands. I knew when she first met them, she would be great as they took to her so well. Thanks Sierra!

Sierra took care of our home and our pup during our trip. We couldn't be happier about the experience. Hailey was happy, contented, and very relaxed. She now has a new human friend, and a new dog buddy as she played happily with Sierra's dog!

Our home was also carefully cared for - plants well tended, everything neat and orderly. Sierra even dusted, vaccumed, and cleaned linens before we came home!

Such a pleasure to come home to a happy dog and a clean and well tended home. We will of course be calling Sierra first for any and all dog-sitting needs!

Sierra was a great host to our dog. She was very accommodating with drop off and pick up times and went out of her way to make sure our dog would be comfortable and happy in her home during our short time away. I recommend Sierra and will add her to our short list of recommended dog sitters for future vacays.
