About Jen

Greetings! I am a lifelong animal lover, and have been caring for animals for over 20 years. I graduated as a Veterinary Technician in 2007 and have been officially petsitting since 2010. In 2015, I moved to providing pet care services as my full time endeavour.

I have a variety of animal experience, ranging from Veterinary clinics, to pet stores, to dog boarding facilities and a bird rehabilitation centre! I offer daily Visits/pet sitting in your home, dog walking, and Overnight stays in your home! Special Needs/Senior pets are welcome!

*I provide in my home boarding services for cats and small animals only*

In Home visits allow your furry (or not so furry!) family members to stay in the comfort of their own home, allowing for a familiar environment, no extra travel for you, and less stress on the pets!. Overnight care is perfect for those pets who cannot be alone overnight. I will stay in your home and provide top notch care for your furry (or not so furry!) family members!

Daily dog walking services are also available- Whether you're at home or the office, I'll come and take Fido or Fluffy out for a potty break, nice stroll or a run in the park!

I am comfortable caring for a variety of animals, ranging from small and fuzzy to horses/farm animals. I am unable to care for aggressive animals

I have experience administering a variety of medications, ranging from oral medications (liquid, pills) to injections (insulin) and ear medications. I am also comfortable administering subcutaneous fluids.

I am fully insured and bonded, certified in Pet First Aid and am Vet recommended
