About Charlene

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I care for dogs, cats, birds, fish, and even a grumpy hedgehog.
My dogs have included young and frisky, elderly with separation anxiety and/or mobility issues, and those with medical issues that need medication or special meals.
My cat clients including a gorgeous pair of playful Persian blues, serene Siamese, wide-eyed Burmese, an affectionate Ocicat, and loving rescues. I've cared for a cat being fed by a tube in her neck, while her mom went on business trips, a diabetic cat, and others with a variety of ills.
There were cheeky cockatoos, friendly budgerigars, a talkative parrot, all sorts of fish, and a hedgehog.
You'll return from your trips with happy and healthy pets, and a clean, neat home.
I form close relationships with my families of pets and humans, and care for my beloved animal friends for years.
I'm a professional writer who works from home. I have long experience & excellent reviews, as a pet-carer. Contactable references can be provided.

Charlene Smith has been a member of our "pet" family for four years. She was our loyal pet sitter and companion to my senior dog, Barnaby. Her weekly pet sitting sessions with Barnaby was the highlight of his life. Barnaby and Charlene would take walks and later they would relax on the sofa, Barnaby all the while making sure his little leg was touching Charlene for comfort; they had an amazingly close bond.

A few months after Barnaby's passing, I adopted a three year old Havanese named Tina. I knew I had to reach out to Charlene again and ask her if she would be interested in becoming Tina's petsitter. Luckily, she has rejoined our "pet" family and Tina and Charlene are loving their time together. I feel so comfortable when I'm away from home, knowing that Tina is in such good hands.

Charlene is reliable, considerate and excellent at caregiving; she will love your pet children as much as you do.

Charlene was awesome and flexible with our last-minute requests. My dog loved staying with her and came home looking very happy :). She obviously loves dogs and takes good care of them. Thank you, Charlene!
Excellent as always!!!!
Charlene was absolutely AMAZING! Our boys were well cared for and exhausted from so much wonderful adventure when we arrived home! We will certainly be requesting her services many more times!
