Professional, Certified, & Trained Pet Sitters & Dog Walkers
Special thanks to our friends at Heart's Ease Veterinary Care, The Cat Clinic of Louisville, Chenoweth Animal Hospital, and St. Matthews Animal Clinic for teaching me everything that I know about Veterinary Medicine; Dr. Tami Harbolt, Dr. Glynis Ridley, and Dr. Jonetta Weber at the University of Louisville for giving me an academic foundation in Animal Studies; and, of course, my mother Merle, for raising me to love and respect all animals. Without these people, LouPETville would not be possible and I am forever grateful.
I began this fun, furry journey in 2012 when I started pet sitting for friends while living on Maui. I began working as a Veterinary Technician soon after returning to Louisville in 2014. I worked in a variety of veterinary settings including emergency medicine, exotic pets, feline specialty, general canine and feline practice, and hospice, palliative care, and in-home euthanasia. I became Fear Free Veterinary Certified in 2017 while working at Chenoweth Animal Hospital. My time spent working with the wonderful, compassionate Dr. Courtney Bennett, her clients, and her patients at Heart's Ease Veterinary Care inspired me to specialize in geriatric and mobility care.
I left the world of veterinary medicine to pursue an education in Comparative Humanities and Animal Studies at the University of Louisville. I continued to pet sit and walk dogs for clients from clinics and hospitals at which I had worked as a Veterinary Technician and, in August of 2018, I officially registered LouPETville as a pet sitting and dog walking business specializing in veterinary, geriatric, and mobility care. I use my professional training, experience, and education to train my employees who also, upon joining the LouPETville family, complete the Fear Free Veterinary Certification program.
We are professional pet sitters and, while we have a LOT of fun doing our job, we take it very seriously.
