Dog Walker, Pet Sitter

Katie's Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Business

For Pet Sitting, I watch their pets when they go on vacation or get deployed. When I pet sit, I normally feed, water and let the dogs out or if they own a cat, I clean out their litter boxes. I normally stay an hour with their pets and play with them to give them company. When I dog walk, I go to peoples' houses and walk their dogs for an hour. Then, when I get back to their house, I normally give them treats and water before I leave.
