About Hope

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Hope and I appreciate you taking the time to view my profile and get to know me! Pet sitting and dog walking is my full time job so you can be assured that all of my attention will be focused on the safety and care of your pet(s) as well as peace of mind for you, the pet owner. I'm 31 years old and have lived with animals my entire life so caring for them is second nature to me. I've also worked in animal hospitals, volunteered at animal shelters, and I'm an active volunteer at Brother Wolf Animal Rescue here in Asheville. I have two rescue pups and a rescue bunny who can attest to my unconditional love for fur babies. I also have extensive experience with senior pets, pets with separation anxiety, and pets with special needs.

I'm an extremely organized and meticulous person so please feel free to tell me in detail your pet's routine and what you expect from our time together. I am completely committed to ensuring your pet is safe and having a great time!

I'm only taking one dog at a time for doggy daycare and overnight boarding (2 dogs if from the same family) because I want to provide the most personal care.

Housesitting: Consists of 2-4 drop-in visits per day. No overnights. A typical drop in visit is 30 minutes and I can do a plethora of things including but not limited to: letting your dogs out to use the bathroom, walking your dogs, feeding your pets, playing with your pets, cleaning the cat’s litter, watering plants, bringing in the mail, rotating lights, and taking the trash to/from the curb. Drop-ins are $20 a visit and the recommended amount is 3/day. I'm available as early as 6am for the first visit, the midday is usually between 11-3, and the evening visit can be done anywhere from 5-11pm. You're welcome to make any visit a walk for 1 or 2 pups!

I truly know that your pet is a part of your family and will treat them as a part of mine! Message me and let's schedule a free meet and greet so we can see if I would be a good fit for you and your furry friend!

I absolutely adore Hope! She watched our young Golden overnight and I think he missed her, her dogs and her fiancé once we picked him up! She took excellent care of him, sent some pics and kept in touch throughout. We never worried about him for a second! I recommend her whole heartedly and will never search for another host again! Thank You Hope for taking such good care of our fur ball!

Hope is awesome!! Our dogs can be a handful at times but Hope has great experience working with rescues. My pups love when Ms. Hope comes to play! My husband and I were able to enjoy our time away knowing our furbabies were in the best care!
Hope was excellent! She took care of our pup so we could spend an evening in Asheville. She was prompt, easy to get a hold of, and even sent us pictures while we were at dinner! I highly recommend her services.
We were visiting Asheville with our beagle-mix and couldn't bring him into the hotel. We found Hope via Dog Vacay and she was able to take care of our guy for the weekend. He got plenty of exercise and love. We're very happy with the experience.
Hope worked with us to figure out a good solution for our family and dog while on a week long trip to Brevard. She went out of her way to help us by coming to our cabin. Ragnar loved her! The next time we're in the area and need dog care she will be my first call! Thank you again!
