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!

Colleen is awesome. We got regular updates with pictures and videos. The house was left in perfect condition and the dogs were very happy and contented. I would give 6 stars if I could.
Colleen was wonderful with our little girl Hazel, a gsd mix and two cats. She stayed in touch, via text, and responded quickly if we had any questions. She sent pictures everyday to let us know how walks went as well as cuddle times! We felt like our dog really took a shine to Colleen and felt comfortable leaving our fur babies with her!

This was our second time hiring Colleen to come and stay with our young GSD and two cats. She took good care of our girl and two boys! Hazel, our GSD really took a shine to Colleen. Colleen was very good about communicating via text, anything that was going on or anything that was need to know. She sent pictures everyday of Hazel and the cats. Plus, she left the house cleaner than when we left! If you want to have someone reliable, responsible, as well as loving and kind with your pets, hire Colleen!
