I offer daily dog walking and pet sitting in Jupiter, Abacoa, Tequesta, Juno Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and North Palm Beach Florida, and surrounding areas.
Hello Pet Parents! My name is Cathy and I have been a local to Jupiter since 2001. Prior to 2001, I resided in Del Mar California, Atlanta, Georgia, and Akron, Ohio where I graduated from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio.
I am passionate about all animals. I believe they are here on earth to teach us love and other life lessons. I love animal communication and strive to connect and show them love as they teach us unconditional love, at all times.
I currently own a Great Dane, named Kipper that is my entire heart! I have grown up with all breeds and have personally owned an Irish Setter, Afghan Hound, Dalmatian, German Shepard, Havanese, Catahoula Hound , Standard Poodle as well as fostering several mixed breeds from local animal shelters over the
years. I also have 2 permanent fosters that are 12 years and 15 years old. Trina is an American Bull dog mix and Buddy is Lab mix.
I recently had to go out of town and it was very hard leaving all my dogs. Trina has a tumor on her spleen and needed 24 hour care and Buddy has health issues. In my search for care I found House and Hound! One of the local pet sitters with the company took exceptional care of Trina and put my mind to
complete ease. She sent me pictures all the time and wrote updates. The communication was extraordinary! I was so thrilled to have that peace of mind while away and House and Hound provided outstanding personalized care that I have never experienced. It was the confirmation I wanted to be part of
such a wonderful pet sitting company so I am thrilled to be able to join such a wonderful organization. I
hope to do the same and more for your pets!
I know how important it is to leave your pet in the care of someone else and especially know they are cared for and loved!
As a pet sitter, I am able to help out by feeding, making sure your pet has plenty of water, walking, exercising, playing, and loving your pet! I am comfortable administering some medicine for your pets if needed. For the past several years, I have worked with local animal shelters as a volunteer taking the dogs on outing to help them become more socialized and adaptable. I am very comfortable and available to bring your pet to the beach, park, or doggie park as well as transport for vet appointments or grooming.
In addition, I will be happy to house sit and bring in your paper or mail, water your plants, take out trash and whatever house tasks you need if you are gone for an extended period of time.
On a personal note, I have been a Professional Photographer for the past 11 years specializing in newborns. I couldn’t return to the Postpartum unit where I created memories for families in the hospital setting due to Covid so I began dog walking and pet sitting on an app platform and during this time I am also
transitioning to specialize in pet photography which I adore! I can also offer your pets some magical portraits and I love capturing the special connection between owners and their pets to last a lifetime!
I am also passionate about travel, art, exercise, eating healthy, nature and the outdoors. I love dolphins and manatees and I have been blessed to have had fun experiences swimming with them. I am a past Equestrian and now ride for pleasure as well as volunteer at Florida Trac Rescue a non-profit organization
providing retired racehorses both meaningful second careers and excellent quality of life. I spend time feeding, watering, grooming, bathing and loving on these amazing animals that deserve loving companionship.
I look forward to meeting you and taking extra special care of all your furry companions!
Thank you for choosing House and Hound Care!
