Whiskers & Tails Pet Care Specialist 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 won't be disappointed in using Whiskers & Tails for your pets needs and your peace of mind.

We are animal lovers at heart

Kim in Suffolk

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

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

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

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

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!

Tana in Carrollton

Hi, my name is Tana and I have lived in the Carrollton area for 13 years. 

I am available for mainly overnight pet care, in my home pet sitting, in your home pet visits, cat care and dog walking.

I was born in Texas and raised riding horses. Growing up we always had a dog.

My son is in Texas and my daughter is in Pennsylvania  attending her first year of college. I always wanted my children to know the love of a pet as well as teaching them the responsibilities of owning one. Over the years we have had dogs, cats, hamsters, birds and fish.

My last three dogs have been rescues and although I have them for a relatively short time I always feel that it is my honor to give them a better second-half of life. It goes without saying that they have made my life so much richer and have taught me many things that only the love of a pet could.

I would give me great joy to give your fur baby the same time, attention and unconditional love that I have shown my own.

Nikki in Portsmouth

Hey everyone, my name is Nicole! 

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

I’m new to Virginia but I love it so much! My husband and I have a son of our own, our kitty Tobi, and he is the center of our world! I love dogs and cats and just about anything that loves to get one on one attention, cuddles and receive love! I’m good with the big and small types! 

I would love to take care of your fur babies and keeping a big smile on their faces! 

Raven in Chesapeake

Hiya! I’m Raven Davidson, and I live in Chesapeake.

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

I was born and raised here in Chesapeake, VA. I have a love for cooking and baking. I love it so much that I have two degrees - one in Baking and Pastries, and one in Culinary arts. 

I also grew up with pets in my household; Poodle, Pitbull, Labador, and a Shih Tzu. So I’m comfortable around big, medium and small pets. I view all my dogs I’ve had as family. 

Being around dogs/cats brings me joy and happiness. Weather it’s cuddles, belly rubs, or head rubs I’m game for it.  

Recently found out I had severe depression and anxiety, and it has been a really hard battle for me, but I started visiting animal shelters to sit with the animals and play with them. That has been a huge help for me. But not just for me, also for the animals there as well. 

I can’t wait to meet you and your fur babies; so we can shower each other with love and attention.
