Hi! My name is Carmen and I live in the Ashburn, VA area. I started and ran Kit & Kaboodle Pet Care Service LLC in Loudoun County for 18 years. I have taken on a new and exciting career challenge working for Fetch! Pet Care of Manassas as their Franchise Manager. However, I am still available to do overnight pet sitting/housesitting in the NoVa area as I get to work from home and need my furbaby fix! I’m a life long pet owner, and am certified at Pet First Aid. I opened up the first professional pet sitting/dog walking business in Loudoun County back in 2000. My company has been covered extensively by the press, including the Washington Post. Additionally, Kit & Kaboodle has won awards including one from the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce for Best Home Based Business.
I am passionate about all animals (have fostered both dogs and cats) and will treat your furbaby with all the love, care and affection you would expect from a professional. I provide overnight pet sitting where I stay with your pup(s) 12-16 hours a day. This type of service is not only cost effective but also ideal if you have multiple pets, senior pets, anxious pets, or pets who just prefer to stay home. I administer medications at no additional cost to you. I will update you daily with photos on how your furbabies are doing and what they are up to. I will happily do a free consultation with you before service begins to meet you and your furbaby.
So next time you plan to go out of town give yourself some piece of mind and please give me the opportunity to take care of your cherished pet!
Best dogs for my personality:
- Neutered or Spayed
- Current on shots
- Potty trained
- No history of aggression: fear, food, toys
- Laid back personality

When I Watch Your Pet
If your furbaby enjoys belly rubs, kisses, butt scratches, fetch, nice walks...Then I'm your gal! I like to hang out and watch TV with your pup (secretly laugh when a commercial with a doorbell comes on). Sleep time is their preference...on or off the bed is fine with me. My ultimate goal is to make your baby feel like I'm part of the pack.
A little about me. As an 11 year old I use to be the neighborhood baby sitter, mother's helper and pet sitter. I made good money and was in high demand :) Now as an adult, "Auntie Carmen" is often how I am referred to by my clients. I get to care for pets whom I grow to love, and have been blessed to still be in high demand :) Prior to opening my pet care business I worked in corporate America for over 15 years as a Human Resources professional. I have two rescue kitties, Candy & Teddy, who are my personal feline furbabies.
