What’s the difference between a Professional Pet Sitter, and a hobbyist or the girl next door?
At Paskapoo Pet Services, we are not your typical “animal lover”, pet sitting for some extra cash!
We take our job of caring for our clients’ pets so seriously that we go the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect, starting with a certification in professional pet sitting (CPPS), proper business insurance and bonding, city licenses and WCB coverage. We have the experience to handle all situations and care for your pets like no one else. We continuously receive training and guidance from Pet Sitters International and carry Pet First Aid and Pet Care certificates. Furthermore, we use specifically designed software for our complex scheduling needs to ensure we never miss a visit.
Professional Pet Sitters are accountable, reliable and caring. We are invested in our work for the long run. We’ve all heard the horror stories and we are working hard to give Professional Pet Sitters a good name.

Kathleen graduated with honors from the University of Quebec in Montreal with a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Biology. She then worked in environmental and pharmaceutical research, occupational health and safety, pest control management, and for the last 5 years in the pet industry as a professional dog walker, pet sitter, and pooper scooper. She recently completed an Animal Psychology Course and is continuously learning about advanced pet care and dog training.
Kathleen started Paskapoo Pet Services in 2013 in order to provide impeccable and reliable services to pet and home owners in the Northwest and Northeast communities of Calgary, where she has resided since 2008. After working in the Oil & Gas industry for a few years, Kathleen realized the challenges that many Calgary pet owners were facing by having to leave their homes and pets unattended from a few days to several weeks while working in the North of the province. Additionally, many of these people didn’t have any friends or family to rely on while away. After having to use the services of a professional pet sitter herself, Kathleen decided this was a perfect opportunity for her to put her knowledge, work experience and leadership to good use.
When she’s not busy taking care of her business and her clients’ pets and homes, Kathleen is often seen singing in a recording studio or attending a Taekwondo class. She’s also actively involved in Dog Safety Awareness for children and has recently purchased her first investment property with her husband and partner Mark. She loves to spend time with her daughter Kara, her own pets as well as gardening and soaking in her bathtub.
Nina is an Animal Health Technologist, and currently working at a veterinary hospital. She is also a registered massage therapist and has canine massage certificate. She lives on a ranch outside of Calgary and spends her free time spoiling her dog by massaging him. She is actively involved in Spay and Neuter Task Force and travels outside of Calgary to help with the outreach clinic. She is excited to join the team to get involved with our community.
Susan moved to Calgary from Rural Ontario, from a very large family that always had pets.Susan worked as an Administrator within the Wellness industry here in Calgary for the past twenty years. That is where she acquired compassion, patience and the importance of doing what makes you feel well and happy.
She is looking forward to helping with the happiness and wellness of your pets.
I’ve loved animals all my life; growing up with cats, dogs and birds! I’m a foster parent with the Calgary Humane Society and have taken animal behavior courses with them as well. I have fostered guinea pigs, hamsters, iguanas and bunnies. Dogs were my best friends growing up and I’ve had pets all my life. I currently have a bunny and a parrot who I love with all my heart. I have experience with all breeds, sizes and ages of dogs and small animals and would be very happy to look after your furry loved ones!
