About Isabella

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Isabella. I am originally from Guatemala and I moved to Fort Collins for school. I studied Biomedical Sciences and Microbiology at CSU with a Pre-Vet concentration. I love animals and I am passionate about their care. Through the years I've worked at multiple veterinary clinics and hospitals as a veterinary technician/assistant. I have also volunteered for Pets Forever, where I cared for pets of elderly individuals around Fort Collins (tasks included bathing, trimming nails, walking dogs, cleaning litter boxes and administering medications for both dogs and cats). I have also fostered many dogs of all ages and sizes, and currently volunteer at the Animal House as a dog walker.
I miss my pets back home, so I am excited to care for your pets as if they were my own. I am a responsible, organized and a very trustworthy individual! You can also expect photo updates of your pets during their stay with me. I have a flexible work schedule which will allow me to walk your pooch during my lunch break and other times during the day - I usually walk them a total of 4 to 5 times a day, but will do more as needed.

Isabella has always loved animals, which is why she is on her way to becoming a vet. She focuses on making sure that the dogs in her care (or other animals) are happy and well cared for. She volunteers her free time at a shelter and makes it a point to pay attention to the ugly and unloved first. Isabella is also very responsible, so I can easily affirm that any pet under Isabella's care will be in the best of hands.

Isabella has an innate connection with every animal, especially dogs. They tend to naturally gravitate towards her when she's in a room and she knows how to take care of them, keep them safe, and make them happy. She's also on her way to vet school, with past experience in animal hospitals in Colorado, which makes her the perfect pet-sitter for any dog!

Isabella did an amazing job with our dog Blizzard. She was available on very short notice and extremely flexible with me and my travel plans. I received pictures of Blizzard every day and know that my dog had a great time and was treated very well. I would recommend this sitter to anyone and will definitely be using her in the future.
She did a fantastic job watching my 13 dogs!! I have 4 of my own dogs, to include 1 puppyou, 1 very strong breed, that needs a good pack leader, 1 dog that does not trust easy, and 1 "normal" dog. I also foster and have a momma with 8 pups that are 4 weeks old. Needless to say we have a house full. when I got home the dogs seemed great. none of them were stressed at all. The house was clean just as we had left it. Our pack takes a lot of work. the momma dog is on meds for her giardia and our puppy is on meds for an inflamed bladder. Pups needed puppy mush made as they are getting teeth so momma is weaning them. I must have left 6 or 7 pages of notes to ensure everything got done, to include feeding our food aggressive dog. I will 100% be using her again. I can finally take trips and not worry about my dogs, they are in good hands!!!
I would recommend Isabella to everyone. She was incredibly accommodating on a last minute reservation and prompt with communication to help coordinate the details.

Our dog, peggy, stayed 5 days with Isabella. She sent photos of them hiking at red rocks, going to the park and cuddling. Peggy is a high energy dog, and Isabella kept her busy.

Not only that, when we packed up to go home, peggy cried looking for Isabella out the window.

Isabella is great and can't wait to book again.
Isabella was wonderful. Communication was quick and thorough before hand and during the stay. Isabella sent great pictures with the pups while she was here. The house was just as we left it and the dogs were so very happy. Great experience! Thank you Isabella!
Isabella was great about staying in touch, sending texts and pictures of our dog throughout the week. She was very professional and enthusiastic. I felt that she truly cared about our dog and wanted to make him happy. I would not hesitate to recommend her or use her again.
Isabella was the perfect dog sitter. She sent daily high quality pictures (we might frame some) and was always quick to respond to any questions we had. I can't think of one thing she could have done better.
Isabella is great with our dogs and their needs. We appreciated her sending us updates while she took care of them too!
Isabella was a great host to our dog, Bear. I think he had a great time! I highly recommend and will definitely use Isabella as our first choice for doggie care in Fort Collins!
Isabella is a very responsible and committed care giver. I have used Isabella many times for her dog walking services and always has she followed up with her promises. I love it that Isabella always keeps me up to date about how Bruce (my dog) is doing, and it always makes me happy when she sends me a picture. I would highly recommend Isabella for your pet needs!
Isabella is amazing!!! She took top notch care of our two pugs We will definitely use her again!
