About Kirsten

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello everyone!
I am Kirsten, I live at Twin Ponds and I'm looking to care for your loved one like I would care for mine from one parent to another. I have my own loved one named Luke who is a playful, mellow 3 month old Siberian Husky. The reason I am here is to enhance my knowledge and experience on animals and its been a passion of mine to care for animals. This an opportunity I am not letting down!
I have been taking care of animals since the age of 2 years old yes I had the assistance when I was two but at the age of 7 my little brother Jack and I would take care of the strays in the neighborhood along with our pets. Jack and I have the dream to one day open or be part of an animal hospital and make it easier for pets to get a home so no animal is homeless and hurt. Not that long ago I was part in an animal rescue group called My Shadow where I was taking care of 14 dogs and 12 cats doing the basic things and giving them plenty of love which every day started from 6 am till 8 pm when all the little ones were fast asleep.
I did dog sitting on the side lines for free so that I would gain the experience and many saw an improvement in their pets. There is a set routine for pets like there is for children for an example Luke eats 3 times a day and goes for walks every 2 hours and goes to the park for two hours twice a day where he socializes with other dogs and runs out his puppy energy. Luke does have nap times as well. Depending on the time your pet comes they will follow the same schedule but modified to yours. The puppies will have a great time eating homemade healthy food and treats and playing ball with others at the two dog parks and in my house. There is a 24/7 Animal hospital in Nashua that would be happy to take our emergency visits if in need.
I am available anytime because I am a stay at home mommy only things that will show up is doctor appointments to keep Luke up to date. Every now and then Luke's daddy will be home from all hours and he plays with Luke and is a pet lover as well. Daddy takes us to all the places we can take Luke from pet stores to the town parks. We would love to make your pet part of our family! Hope to hear from you!

Hi Everyone,

Kirsten and her husband took care of Toby with the most tending loving care (TLC)! Not only was Toby taken care of (petted, fed, walked, exercised, petted again, and loved), Kirsten sent me daily updates and photos as well!

Thank you Kirsten....job well done!!

Kind Regards,

Michael G.

Kirsten was terrific! I was able to have my pups stay with her last minute on a holiday weekend. She sent lots of updates and photos to let me know how my pups were doing. I could tell that they were having a great time and well taken care of! I would highly recommend her services.

You did a great job with my dog! I definitely recommend Kirsten to anyone looking for a host!
She took care of my dog for one night and she was great! Definitely bringing my dog again.
She did an amazing job with my dog Munkie! She sent pictures a long the way and Munks really loved her and her dog.
Kirsten took care of Benjy for a day. It was Benjy’s first experience with a dog sitter.
I am sure Benjy had a great time. Benjy’s the kind of hyperactive puppy who wants nothing more than to play all day, and Kirsten’s puppy Luke was a great companion for him. By the time I picked up Benjy he was completely exhausted and as we all know, a tired puppy is a happy puppy!
Kirsten kept us updated with pics of Benjy. At the end of the day, she gave a detailed letter of Benjy’s activities of the day, which was really cool. We would definitely recommend Kirsten’s services in the future.
