About Catherine

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I'm Catherine. I have been pet sitting for various people in my area since I was about 15 (23 currently) and am absolutely in love with it!

I have a 14-year-old Bichon Frise who I couldn't imagine life without. My family got her as a puppy and I have loved every minute of the past 14 years with her. I treat animals like they're a part of my family, not just a pet. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge animal lover. I'm very compassionate towards animals and would love nothing more than to take care of them. I am available for dog walking, pet sitting (at your home), or taking a pet to the vet. I'm currently living with someone who is allergic to dogs and cats so I am unable to pet-sit at my house but am happy to stay at yours and can help out with any chores that need to be done as well!

In December of 2016 I graduated from Old Dominion University and am now looking for a full time job and petsit on the side. I used to work a full time job as a kennel assistant at Todds Lane Veterinary Hospital. I volunteer at the Peninsula SPCA whenever I have free time, which has helped me learn more about animals who behave differently! I am able to read how a pet is feeling and can respond appropriately in order to make sure they are comfortable. I would be so thankful to be able to take care of your pet and spoil them :)

My dogs LOVED Catherine. I was super nervous about leaving my dogs, and I really needed someone to stay in my home with them while I was gone. Catherine is SUPER sweet. She took great care of my pups, treated them like her own, and sent me updates. Catherine is SUPER sweet. She took great care of my pups, treated them like her own, and sent me updates. I will 100% have Catherine over to watch them again in the future!
