About Kristen

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a young Professional looking for part-time pet sitting. I have lived in the Fredericksburg area for the majority of my life and recently relocated to Winchester. I enjoy walking around downtown, going to DC or Richmond. My family is from Boston, and those that are still living there I love visiting and spending time with. The rest of my family migrated to Florida, to get out of the cold, so I spend time down South each year as well. I am very active; accomplished field hockey player both HS and College, Yoga, Swimming and Running (2 half marathons under my belt). I don't sit around much, I would rather be outside, hiking, reading or Pinteresting.
I have been dog sitting for neighbors since I was in high school. Then when I came home from college I started working to build up clientele in the area. I have taken care of doggies that needed extra attention, medical treatment, long walks, or just normal day to day care.
Unfortunately, I was blindsidedly and viciously attacked by a Pitt Bull Mix and now have a fear of the breed or mixes of the breed. I understand it is not every dog in the breed and have tried since to be accepting but due to the trauma I am unable to get over it. I apologize in advance if that upsets any potential guests but I want to make sure your dog has the best and most comfortable stay possible.

Kristen was very flexible and accommodating to our up-in-the-air drop off and pick up times. Remmy seemed to enjoy his time with her. Thank you!!
Kristen was awesome, kind, and flexible. We will no longer be using a kennel when we need to board our dog.
Our dog Lily had a wonderful time while staying with Kristen. When we picked Lily up she seemed very happy and wasn't running for the door like she usually does with other people. We loved getting the updates while we were away, it was such a relief to know Lily was enjoying herself. We are planning to use Kristen again for our next vacation

Kristin was great with my girls & they settled in quickly and comfortably as if they were at home. I felt they were in good hands and that is of utmost importance to me. I understand they had a good time with her dog, too, which was a plus. Thanks, Kristin - we will be back soon!!

My beautiful St. Bernard "Diamond" just got back from her stay with Kristen! Diamond looks content and even a bit tired, bonus! I would highly recommend using Kristen, you won't regret it!
