Hi! My name is Dorri, and I am a pet sitter!
I have been enjoying this career since 2009, and have worked with animals in many different capacities for my entire life. As a child, I grew up with cats (I actually wanted to be a vet, until I realized that you sometimes had to hurt animals in order to help them); as a teenager, I was a nanny for a family whose Bichon had litters of puppies; in my early twenties, I cared for and ultimately had to put down our own beloved family dog who was suffering from lung cancer; in my late twenties, I helped foster feral cats while living in Texas; and when I started my pet sitting business, I was the first person to attempt to walk a very sweet but headstrong rescue dog. These experiences are invaluable, as are the years of experience that I have had pet sitting. Although I have not seen nor done nearly everything, I like to think that I have some knowledge. Fun facts: I am college educated (Summa cum Laude), used to work in corporate America (retail, customer service, finance … cube life!), and I enjoy being able to make animals and my clients happy! I guess it’s all about me, huh? 😉
The Bucks County area has been my home for a majority of my life (although I have also lived in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Texas) … but this April, I moved yet again! My husband and I bought our first house in Quakertown. We love it here, and we think the people are wonderful! Oh … did I say “husband”?!? That’s right – our wedding was June 18 of 2017. We love animals so much, and I’ve always wished for a pig in my wedding … so we had a pig as our ring bearer!!
What a busy year for Dorri The Pet Sitter, LLC! Lucky for us, our three kitties have adapted well to their new domicile. So what is next? Well, our home has a small backyard, and we are in the process of adding a fence. We are *very* excited to say that we will soon be offering pet boarding (one client at a time, please) to feline-friendly, house-trained dogs! New clients may inquire about this service as soon as November, and current clients may be on the lookout for a letter in the mail!
