About Kirsten

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am an animal enthusiast and consider myself fortunate to have grown up with dogs and cats my whole life. (My friends like to call me the animal whisperer.) My husband and I just relocated to the DC area with our six year old cat, Carla, and we are planning to get a dog in the near future. In the meantime, I would love to help take care of yours!

Daytime: I am at home working as an independent consultant and able to offer frequent pets and activity for your pup. I am a very active person so whether your dog enjoys leisurely walks around the neighborhood or long jogs in Rock Creek Park then I'm happy to oblige. We also live within a three minute walk to the Shaw Dog Park so if you're comfortable, I'd love to take your pup there for some playtime. And unlike most cats, Carla is very comfortable around dogs as long as she can have some quiet time under her bed. (This works out perfectly during walk time.)

Bedtime: Your dog is welcome to sleep anywhere in our condo. I'm also happy to reinforce certain behavior (like no sleeping on couches) and any other training during his/her time with me.

Ive never met a bigger animal lover than Kirsten. She grew up with dogs running around the house and gets so excited every time she cares for them. If you want someone that will truly try and make your dog's experience as fun and comfortable as possible, she is definitely the one to do it. Dogs are naturally drawn to her, and her patience and desire to be helpful will make her a pleasure to deal with as well.

Kirsten was raised with a household of pets: a basset hound, a lab mix, a Jack Russell mix, and numerous cats over an 18 year period. She is very patient, gentle, and consistent with animals and possesses a calm disposition which animals are drawn to. Kirsten is also very reliable and trustworthy. She will not disappoint. She has a life time of experience caring for cats and dogs and will walk, cuddle, feed, and keep your pet company at night. I heartily recommend Kirsten.

Kirsten is a conscious and caring pet owner. She's had dogs and cats as a kid and been a cat owner for many years as an adult. She has been a dog walker and sitter many times people and always been a thoughtful and dependable sitter. I have trusted her with my dogs and would do so again!

Kirsten is amazing! Pear absolutely loves spending the day with Kirsten and their cat as well as when he simply needs a mid-day relief walk at home to get some sunshine. She has watched Pear for the day several times and we fully intend on continuing to trust her with our little guy!

Kirsten looked after our 4-month old dachshund, Louie, for a day, and was a wonderful host! She was very responsive and clear while planning the logistics of the day, which made us very comfortable leaving our puppy with her. It also made the drop off an pick up seamless. Additionally, Kirsten sent pictures of Louie throughout the day, which I appreciated so much! Overall, she is very caring, organized, and we will definitely be asking her to spend more time with Louie in the future.

Kristin is an excellent sitter. I got the pictures throughout the day. My dog Dexter had a great time and looked really happy. She also gave me her observation about my dog during the walk to make sure my dog was ok. I really appreciated that. I'd definitely have Dexter satyed with her again. Highly recommended.
