About Colleen

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Ready to be your pup's new bud! With 12+ years experience sitting all kinds of pets and a lifetime of caring for my own, I will give your companion all the love and care I would give my own.

All aspects of care are suited to your pet's needs. Upbeat runs for those who need to get the lead out; leisurely strolls for those with a slower pace. Our furry loved ones are as unique as we are, and I look forward to getting to know yours!

ABOUT ME
I grew up with dogs, cats, birds, fish, rats, lizards -- you name it! In my teens I took care of and trained our dog Jack, a rescue Border Collie mix who I still miss. I am now a writer, actor, and substitute teacher, which affords me a flexible schedule and plenty of time to devote to your furry (or scaly, or feathery) family members. I can't have a dog of my own yet, so I would love to shower yours with love and affection!

In closing, I will leave you with this bit of wisdom from April Ludgate:

(Although I do love people, too. But aren't pets just better?)

Colleen is a great young lady who I entrusted to take care of my dog on many occasions. She stayed at my house for sometimes extended periods of time and I was very pleased with her care of my dog and my house. She is trustworthy and loves animals!

Anytime I leave my pup, Maggie, in Colleen's care, I know she is going to receive all the love and attention she would with me. She understands how to respond to what Maggie needs, sends me updates on how she's doing, and treats her as if she were her own. Maggie is always happy to see her, and that speaks volumes to me!

Super duper pawesome, Colleen is a natural with dogs and our pups took to her immediately! We have a shy girl, so this was a huge plus for us, and very reassuring as we left her in great care. Colleen sent videos to us while we were away, and everyone was adorably happy and playing. We love our new pup-Aunty! Will definitely be asking her to watch our home go forward. :) Thanks Colleen!!
