I'm an experienced dog walker, pet sitter and farm caretaker in the Upper Skagit Valley.
During university and high school I worked as an assistant veterinary technician at local animal hospitals. In 2008 I started Kite Hill Canines in San Francisco. I spent six years exploring the parks and beaches of the Bay Area with my pack. In 2012 I left California for the Pacific Northwest with my Red Heeler mix Quinley. I spent time apprenticing and working on farms in Washington and British Columbia.
I settled down in the beautiful Upper Skagit Valley in 2016 with my Australian Cattle Dog Percy Blue. In 2017 I plan to begin offering dog boarding and daycare at my home. I'm insured through Pet Sitters Associates LLC. Feel free to call or email me. Percy & I are always up for a meet-n-greet at the Bark Park in Sedro!
DOG WALKS: Our group walks are an hour of off-leash playtime at a local dog park or property. I offer private on-leash walks and hikes as well especially for puppies, elderly or reactive dogs. $24 per walk; $36 for two dogs
HOUSE SITTING: I offer overnight pet-sitting in your home to clients in the Upper Skagit Valley. This includes all your dog's care for 24 hours (food, exercise, love) plus looking after your home, staying overnight, bringing in the mail, watering the plants, etc. I travel with my friendly cattle dog Percy. Pets with special needs may require an additional rate. Discounts for long-term visits (1 week+). $48+ per night
FARM CARE-TAKING: I have experience looking after beef and dairy cattle, sheep, goats, horses and poultry in the Pacific Northwest. Please visit Trusted Housesitters for testimonials or email me for more info and references.
DOG BOARDING: COMING SOON -- Your dog will be part of the family. They'll play, eat and sleep with Percy in our home. Depending on the week's schedule and your dog's needs, we'll visit a nearby dog park and/or hiking trails. Pets with special needs may require an additional rate. Discounts for long-term visits (1 week+). $38 per night; $66 for two dogs
