Dawn

Dawn

Dawn is one of our seasoned pet sitter and dog walker, having joined the team in May 2015. She specializes in our canine pals, but also has experience with rabbits, ferrets, birds & reptiles, but unfortunately, due to severe allergies, she tries to steer clear of feline clients.

Dawn has been a lifelong lover of dogs, having met her first dog at 3 days old, and chose her first canine friend at the age of 5, naming her Candy. She has a long history of volunteer work with shelters, rescues, and rescue transport services. Dawn has two Brittany Spaniels: Ecko and Raine, and two long-term fosters dogs, Frankie, an Argentine Dogo mix who was rescued from a local shelter, and Meeka, a bulldog mix who was rescued from a northern Illinois animal control.

Dawn is a professional Positive Reinforcement – Lure / Reward Pet Trainer, focusing on dogs with problematic behaviors and working with pet parents to develop behavior modification and management plans, and is dedicated to ensuring even the most difficult dogs can live a full and safe life with their families.

Raine often joins Dawn for training sessions, and is a great assistant with reactive dogs and their humans to learn more appropriate behavior. Dawn serves clients in Kenosha, Somers & Pleasant Prairie.

Debbie

Debbie started working for Kenosha Pet Sitter in 2016. She grew up in Connecticut with a house filled with animals – cats, dogs, fish, turtles, lizards, hermit crabs, hamsters, a floppy-eared bunny named Parker – and a yard filled with rescued-then-released wild animals. She volunteered and worked at the Beardsley Zoo for 13 years, while also working at farms, horse events, pet sitting and taking zoo and domestic animals to schools and nursing homes for teaching and comfort therapy. She has a beautiful puppy named Lyra Lemons, and a couple of cool cats called the Krakens. For her, there is no greater compliment than having a dog run up to you and give you its love, and no happier moment than when you can be kind to any animal.

I just started pet sitting in May of this year (2023) although I have been living and working around animals since I was a child: cats, dogs, tamed rats, guinea pigs, and currently own a ferret. My inspiration to work with animals stems from my aunt who is a dog groomer. I’m 18 years old and in my last year of high school at Tremper.

Jaden

Jaden

My name is Jaden. I am 20 years young. I’ve been around and taking care of animals since the age of ten. Throughout my life I have had pleasure of having five pets; four puppies and one kitty.  My Yorkipoo has seizers so I know signs to look for and what to do when something happens. I always wanted to work with animals as a job. I treat any animal like it’s my own and make them number one priority. I will always go with what owner wants as they know their animal more than me. I try my best to replicate the pet’s daily routine so they feel as comfortable as possible. I look forward to watching your pets in the future!
