About Jocelyn

Hi there!

My name is Jocelyn and I have my own rescue dog, named Littlefoot and cat Beatrice, and they are the best of friends. I am currently available in the early mornings, lunchbreaks and after 4pm during the week and between 8am and 6pm on weekends for house visits and dog walks. House visits are a minimum of a half hour and dog walks range from half an hour to an hour, whichever your preference is.

Right now I am servicing the Main St. through Fraser area and Olympic village and parts of China town (around Main St). I can serve up to 30th and Main and 30th and Fraser. SOME exceptions only if you are an existing client. 

If you are an existing client and see that I have time that's unavailable, please message me anyway! 

After having used this service to have someone sit our pets while we were away, I want to give back and provide services for those looking for dog walkers and daily house visits.

I've had cats since I was 20 years old — the first cat I had as an adult was 12 when I got her and she lived until she was over 20, so I have experience with senior cats! I then fostered 3 kittens in 2012 — one of which would then become mine, who is Beatrice, which means I have experience with a range of cats! We then adopted Littlefoot in September 2018 from Thailand, who has taken some time getting used to his life in Vancouver, but with love and patience he has come a long way since then. Having experience with a rescue has taught me to be patient and understanding and cognitive of things I may not have thought of before, such as him being afraid of the TV when we first got him, because he had never seen one before. Now he is as comfortable as ever with the TV and it doesn't even phase him with it on!

In terms of services I can provide, since we already have two pets of our own, unfortunately we are not allowed to have more than two in our place at any given time (building rules). I can provide daily walks and two house visits per day. I am comfortable with all sizes of dogs, and good leash manners are a plus. Because I have experience with my own rescue dog, I am happy to take things slow with dogs who may be timid or scared, since my own was this way! For cats, I am flexible as well and have experience with young and old cats and have experience administering medications as well.

I am happy to take dogs to the dog park during walks or for just a basic walk, feed and give treats and play with them and their toys.

At home visits, I will play with your pets, feed/water, clean out litter and administer medications if required. I will also be sure to send you tons of photos so it’s almost like they are with you when you’re gone! I will also water any plants you need and do tidying up so you don’t have to when you get home!

HOUSE SITTING is a new-to-me service I'm providing. Preferred house sitting bookings I'll take on can be up to seven days and in the east Van parameters.

I look forward to meeting you and your pets!

We’ve booked with Jocelyn many times and we always come home to a happy cat when she is our sitter!

She also lives close to me in a very central spot, so it is also nice that I can drop my keys off at her place when I’m near by doing errands rather than coordinating a pick up time when I am at home.

Jocelyn was great! Had no problem operating our security alarm and using our housekey lockbox, and sent photos of our furry family member each visit. Friendly and respectful. Thanks Jocelyn!
