Whiskers & Tails Pet Sitting Power Team


I am an experienced pet sitter living in Carrollton, VA. I was born and raised in Germany and moved to the US in 2002 after meeting a handsome Naval Academy cadet who soon became my husband. We have 2 beautiful children. I enjoy time outdoors with my family, traveling and gardening.

I had cats growing up and my husband and I owned a beautiful black Lab from 2002 until his passing in 2014. Since then I have turned my abundant love for Argos to all the pets that come in my live.  

With years of satisfied owners and loved pets, you can rely on me to care for your pets when you are away.

I am prepared to help with your pets need; whether it is with different behaviors or pet care routines to giving medication.  

My highest priority is you and your pets happiness and care. I strive to provide a service I would want my own pet to have!

Whiskers & Tails started here in Virginia in 2018 and is the perfect solution to making sure your pet is cared for while you are at work or out of town.

You wont be disappointed in using Whiskers & Tails for your pets needs and your peace of mind.

Kim in Suffolk, VA

Hi, My name is Kim. There are four of us that live in the home. Myself, my husband and our two 4 legged babies. 

I am available for doggy daycare, dog walks and in home boarding.

Your pet would be treated like one of the family, getting plenty of love and quality time each day. All females need to be spayed please. We have a large fenced in yard and live in an awesome neighborhood, great for going out for long walks. I am a Certified Medical Assistant & credentials are current. In the past I have worked at veterinarian offices back in the kennels. I have also doggie watched for many friends for years while they are out of town. I so enjoy all the furbabies that come through my door.

Kelsey in Norfolk, VA

Hi My name is Kelsea Derby. 

I am available for dog walks, cat care, in your home pet sitting and in home boarding. 

I've been around dogs ever since I was little, with having a puppy of my own. He's a 1 year old shinu Inu mix that loves making new friends. Am currently working on getting my medical degree in medical office. Also hoping to get my vet assist too so that I can be with them more often. Having a pet is the best thing and being in the family. With that you want them to be happy and comfortable. I hope that you and your furry buddies will have an awesome day.

Britanie in North Suffolk, VA

Hello y'all! My name is Britanie. I live in North Suffolk.   

I am available for dog walks, cat care, and overnight stays anywhere in Hampton Roads.   

 I've loved animals for a long time. When my brother and I would go visit my Uncle and Aunt in Connecticut, we loved to see their animals. They had chicken, turkeys, pot belly pigs, dogs, and cats. I also went to a horse camp where I learned to ride and take care of horses. If you can't tell I just love all animals.  I am a 12 year brain cancer tumor survivor.  I surely don't feel or look it. At my house we have a Doberman Pinscher named Raven May and a Savannah cat named Nala Beans. I love reading, going to vendor bingo to see my friends and the New England Patriots and Red Sox.

Jacqueline "Jax" in Carrollton, VA

Hello everyone! I’m Jax, and transplanted to Virginia from Massachusetts 13 years ago. 

I am available for dog walks, cat care, in your home pet sitting and occasional overnights.

I grew up on mini-farm with all sorts of animals, from chickens, to dogs and cats, to horses! My husband and I currently own Benson, the Greatest Dane in all the land, Nugget, the Greatest Pyrenees in all the land, and Poops, the fattest (and happiest!) Husky/Shepard in the world. I still enjoy riding horses, am a bit of a bookworm (when I find the time!) and am a freelance writer as well.

I bring a wealth of knowledge in handling large and giant breeds, and dogs that are transitioning to new families after being in shelters and rescues. I also have a particular fondness for senior pups, and the pups with special needs due to owning quite a few over the years. 

I look forward to meeting you and your pets soon!

Samantha H. in Portsmouth, VA

Hi! My name is Samantha. 

I am available for dog walks, cat care, in your home pet sitting and in home boarding.

Animals are a big part of my life. Since I was a young child I have been head over heels for them. I'm very comfortable and experienced with all breeds as well as dogs with special needs and behavioral issues. I am very comfortable with all animals that need to be given medications oral or injections. I love all sizes of animals wheither they are extra extra small, or GIANT. I have worked with them all. I enjoy creating fun enrichment for all the animals in my care and watching them learn new things everyday. I can't wait to help you with your precious fur babies!
