In January, 1971, over 45 years ago, Jack and Kathy started Columbia’s Original Pet Sitting Service LLC., the first professional Pet Sitting Service in the United States right here in Columbia, MD. We wanted to pursue our passion and love working with and caring for all kinds of animals. Ever since childhood we have been finding, bringing home, and caring for a variety of pets. Jack started his professional career working with animals in the U.S. Army as a Dog Handler, Trainer, and Veterinary Technician. Kathy has always loved animals, and was very excited to start the Pet Sitting Service with Jack. They have cared for pets in over 10, 000 homes over the past 40 years. Kathy and Jack have been Voted Best Pet Sitter by the readers of Baltimore Magazine. They have been featured in newspapers, magazines, and on TV and Radio. Kathy and Jack have cared for all breeds of dogs and cats, fresh and saltwater aquariums, all kinds of birds, reptiles, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, monkeys, skunks, tarantula spiders, and various pocket pets. Our business has allowed us to pursue our love of animals, and we look forward to sharing it with your little ones.
