Pet Sitter - PetTech® CPR & First Aid Certified

I have been working with Villaridge Pet Sitters since March 2013 but have been an avid dog and animal lover my whole life. I decided to join the company when I wanted to find a way to spend more time with dogs outside of my regular job. There is nothing better than the excitement on a dog’s face when you come to take them out for a walk or play with them when their owners are away. I love all dogs, but over the last few years I have spent most of my time with my parents’ 2 English bulldogs and my sister’s 2 bull dogs. These 4 goofy pups put a smile on my face every time I see them and often have me in fits of laughter. When I’m with your dogs, you can rest assured that they will be loved and entertained. In the time I have been with Villaridge, I have met several great walkers and I know that everyone here just loves animals.

Pet Sitter - Certified Veterinary Assistant

I started working with Villaridge in the summer of 2012 covering the Sterling area. I’ve been working full time in Reston, Herndon and Great Falls since spring 2014. I have a young dog and an adult cat, both from rescue organizations. I understand each of their personalities and apply it to my every day job. Villaridge has given me a career caring for animals and making them happy, which I love. I am a certified veterinary assistant, this gives me great experience with different medications, health problems, diet regimens and any specific requirements your pet may have.

I have been with Villaridge Pet Sitters from the beginning. I have many pets of my own. Just rescued Lucy 3 months ago from Foreverhome. I have a cat named Princess & a gecko named Martin. I also have a salt water aquarium. I have had pets all my life. I love being outside getting exercise hanging out with the dogs & inside playing with the cats as well. Sometimes I forget to pick up my paycheck because this job is not work for me. I am also a fitness instructor part – time & a full time mother with two teenage girls.

I have worked in the animal field most of my adult life, in retail, as an ET assistant and most recently as a groomer. I am very knowledgeable about all animal needs. I currently own a Blue Tongue Skink named Georgia, a Jeweled Tail Swift Lizard named Sparkle, two Bearded Dragons named Spike and Puff and two cats named Tiger and Babygirl.

My love affair with animals started at a very young age when my father brought home my very first puppy! Since then my home has always been full with at least one if not multiple pets. I have been an active volunteer at animal shelters and equine rescue and have fostered horses until ready for adoption. I have been with Villaridge Pet Sitters since 2009 and look forward to seeing my clients furry friends each day.

Pet Sitter

I have been working with Villaridge since August of 2005. I was a full time dog walker but now do mostly sits. Currently, I am between pets right now, but have owned one dog and three cats. Rhoda and Sarah are great to work with and want us all to be comfortable with our clients. It has been like that since they bought the company and I haven’t had a need to seek out others to work for. My favorite part of my job is, meeting sweet and wonderful pets and their equally nice owners! I do have a certificate in Pet First Aid and experience as a lifetime pet owner. You can expect, the best possible care I can give, while leaving your fur kids in my care.

I have been a pet sitter with Villaridge since September of 2012. I have grown up in Reston and currently live in Leesburg VA. Growing up I had cats and rabbits and have always enjoyed being around animals. I work full time for a before and after school program for Fairfax County. Whether taking care of children or animals, I find it very rewarding. I am happy to be working with great people and pets at Villaridge!

Pet Sitter - PetTech® CPR & First Aid Certified

In June 2010, I realized that my Social Security check was not going to support me. I needed a part-time job. I didn’t want to teach, write computer documentation, or edit bad writing. What I really wanted to do was spend my time with my Beagle, Runner, and my grand dogs (which are various shapes and sizes from a tiny Maltese to a huge Pyrenees). But that was not a good way to supplement my income. The best of both worlds? Working with the great people at Villaridge Pet Sitters. I get to spend all my time with wonderful pets that range from dogs and cats to birds and hermit crabs, and I earn a little “pocket money.” Only one drawback. I want to bring all of the animals home with me. I fall in love with each and every one!

Jami

Jami

Pet Sitter

My name is Jami and I’m a part time pet sitter for Villaridge Pet Sitters. I am new to Northern Virginia and looking for extra money so I am able to move my daughter here with me. Her name is Maggie May and is a golden lab/retriever mix. I was always known for trying to drag home homeless animals, even though my home was never without animals. I always treat all animals like they were my own so you can rest assure that yours will get treated like gold.

Pet Sitter - PetTech® CPR & First Aid Certified

Hi, my name is Donna. My husband and I moved to Reston from Wisconsin in 2004, and we really enjoy Virginia life with our labradoodle, Foster. We have a daughter who lives in the New York City area with her two dogs. We love to have them visit. There’s never a dull moment when the three dogs are together. I’ve been with Villaridge since 2006, and I never dreamed that walking dogs would be my dream job. Every day, I look forward to taking care of my dogs; they are all very special and make me feel special also. Villaridge has a great group of walkers. Every one of them is very reliable and caring. I’m proud to be part of such a wonderful organization.

Pet Sitter - American Red Cross Pet First Aid & CPR Certified

I have been working for Villaridge Pet Sitters LLC since September 2006. I feel extremely fortunate to be working for Rhoda Otero and Sarah Parkinson. They have given me so much over the years that I think I have now been thoroughly spoiled for any other job, and I know for certain I am not the same person I was before I joined their team of animal lovers. Being a pet sitter has given me an outlet for embracing my lifelong passion for animals. I can’t imagine another occupation where I get to interact with so many wonderful animals and their fantastic owners. I truly believe the pets we care for and their owners are the heart of the company! I am able to administer medication to dogs and cats and am always willing to go the extra mile for you and your furry, feathered, or scaled family member! This is a picture of me with my dog, Ginger.

Pet Sitter

I have worked for Villaridge Pet Sitters since June of 2012. I grew up in Reston in a family with four siblings and many pets over the years, including dogs, cats, parakeets, hamsters, fish, and turtles. I even managed to convince my family to let me bring in a few snakes when I was living with them. As a teen, I passed out pet care flyers in my neighborhood and had a daily job for several years walking neighbors dogs and other animals. I have worked for a pet store feeding, cleaning, and giving meds to the animals as well. I now reside in Oakton with my two cats that I adopted and adore more than anything! I have always loved animals!!!! Villaridge has given me the opportunity to share my passion for animals.

Pet Sitter

Animal care and rescue are my true passions in life and I have dedicated the last 16 years to helping homeless animals. I’ve been blessed with seven truly special dogs during my life; five followed me home from the animal shelter! Animal care is more than just a job…it is a huge responsibility to provide the ultimate care to the animal guest; assuring the client that the number one goal is to ensure the safety of their pets left in our care.

I follow a simple philosophy: treat each client like they are the only one and most important, understanding their pets are their children and family members…focusing on listening, noting requests, following instructions, using positive reinforcement and providing service that exceeds expectations. Since 1996, I have been a senior volunteer, including a term as Executive Director, and dog walker at a local non-kill animal shelter. I’ve walked big and small dogs, also working closely to rehabilitate extremely shy ones.
