About Gretchen

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Let me provide you with peace of mind while you're away! I'm a licensed veterinary technician with many years of professional pet care experience and I've recently become a stay at home mom. I began pet sitting when I was in high school, worked as a kennel manager for a boarding kennel after graduating college, then went back to school and became a vet tech, which was my career until recently. Now I'm staying home with my daughter, which puts me in an ideal position to focus on pet sitting once again! I also have years of dog training experience, and have trained and competed in dog agility in my spare time.
As a former kennel manager and as a pet parent, I understand how important it is to have someone you can trust to care for your pets while you're away. I know that your pets are members of your family, and they deserve to be treated as such. I will care for your pets as I care for my own fur-babies. I can provide a safe, comfortable home-away-from-home for your dogs where they will get plenty of attention and interaction! My home includes 3 friendly dogs, 3 dog-friendly cats, and some outdoor chickens. I have a fully fenced yard that includes a large deck to hang out on in nice weather. I'm home all day, so when your dog stays with me, they will not be left alone. If your pet has any medical needs, I can provide them whatever they need- who better than a stay at home vet tech?
To provide the safest environment for your dog(s) as well as my own, I do request that your dog(s) be up to date on vaccines as well as flea/tick prevention and heartworm prevention before staying with us in our home. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have, so please don't hesitate to contact me!

Nov 2016
I've known Gretchen both personally and professionally for about five years. She is one of the most dedicated and responsible pet-owners I know and has taken care of my pets (and many of our other friends and acquaintances pets) on a number of occasions. She has extensive knowledge in pet care/treatment/medications and pet training. Gretchen is one of the few people I have ever felt completely comfortable caring for my pets!

Gretchen is a compassionate animal lover, and super-responsible person. Because her background is in the Veterinary field, in addition to watching our pets she has helped us with other pet-related tasks like administering their medications and clipping their nails. What a bonus it's been to have such an experienced and capable resource -- who my animals adore!
