I am originally from Hialeah, Florida, but have lived in St. Petersburg since I was five-years-old. I retired from the St.Petersburg Times (Tampa Bay Times) in 2007 after nearly 30 years as a Database Editor in the News Library.After reinventing myself I began a companionship business for the elderly, but decided I needed to subsidize my income with something else. I have always loved animals, of ALL kinds and always had dogs and cats throughout my life. Today I (along with my daughter) have several of each and a snake.
I started with Calling All Dogs in May, 2016 and enjoy it tremendously. I treat my clients’ pets as if they were my own and feel I have a special rapport with my regular fur friends, including a guinea pig named Nutmeg. In fact, I have told several of my regulars that if they ever have to re-home their pet(s), I’ll take ’em!
Calling All Dogs has been an extraordinary service. My pup clearly adores Kristin, her regular walking buddy. This complex is crowded with not-quite-controlled dogs, but Kristin knows how to safely handle any situation that comes up. I highly recommend this amazing team of dog lovers!
My pets are always well looked after. I really appreciate the pet pictures and daily updates. I highly recommend CAD!
I was very happy with Calling All Dogs and the pet sitter Mechele. She was very caring and provided detailed updates of how my dog Peter was doing. Peter bonded with Mechele and I appreciated her efforts to help with helping to follow a training protocol that Peter is participating in. I will definitely be seeking out Calling All Dogs and Mechele's pet sitting again!
My pup and I Love calling all dogs!! I’m a nurse and work long shifts so having this service gives me peace of mind!! I also love getting my pet journal emailed to me while at work, it’s so great to get a picture and update of her day!!
