Animal Lover On-Call!
My name is Colin. I would like to take care of your dog! I am prudent, in the moment with your dog, and reliable. I am a full-time dog walker/pet sitter, and full time dog owner :)
I have a corgi mix. I love playing with her and going for walks, she is a treasure. She can be hard to handle around other dogs, I have experience with high-strung dogs and mellow dogs alike.
I am a patient person. I perform basic dog-training techniques during walks such as simple voice commands and reinforcing good walking habits. I go to outdoor areas for walks, such as greenbelts, and other trails.
When pet-sitting, I prioritize your pet's well-being: I set potty break and exercise alarms on my cell phone to keep a routine with your pet while you are away. I follow strict meal-portion guidelines and administer any medication exactly as directed. I give your dog treats the same way that you do, and give your dog plenty of attention.
When house-sitting I take care of your home like a business: Ill bring in the mail/newspaper/milk, take care of trash on trash day, bring in packages, take care of utility-people, lock all doors and windows and take care of the residence otherwise. Your house is safe with me.
A little bit about me: I enjoy being in the snow and other winter weather, Im very excited for this coming winter! Snow walks are a real treat! I enjoy hiking, reading, cooking, fishing, kayaking, and photography. I have lived in Colorado my whole life, backpacking is my favorite Colorado activity.
Please contact me with your dog-inquiry!
What Colin would like to know about your dog
No breed preferences, I need to know any medication that your dog(s) take, any personality traits of your dog that I need to be aware of such as toy/treat preferences, activity preferences, or other special needs for your treasured pet.
Other Animals: Cats, Chickens, and Other? All welcome! Please contact me for further details

Colin was great at getting my enthusiastic pup to follow on the leash. She has way too much energy for me to walk her when it's icy, i am so happy to have found someone I can Trust to give my girl her exercise and teach her to behave on the leash. And he is so easy to talk to and work with as well as punctual and prepared.
Colin has taken care of my dog many times. He's very reliable, but what I like most is he goes beyond just feeding and walking her. He plays with her and tries to teach her good behavior. He just loves dogs and it shows!
