Owner. Dog Walker. Pet Sitter

While working as an assistant for a pet sitting company for years, I instantly realized the benefits to both families and pets from in-home pet care as an alternative to boarding & kenneling. Whether it's daily visits while owners are at work or away on vacation, I found that it was less stressful for not only the pet owners but also their pets who are cared for and nurtured in their familiar environment. Launching my own pet service provided me the opportunity to share my lifelong passion of animals with the Barkhamsted community & surrounding area. I founded this business around three central tenets: customer service, trust, and individual attention. I understand the uncertainty that comes with entrusting someone with your two most treasured assets -- your pet and home. In addition to being licensed, bonded, and insured, I offer a personal assurance to all my clients that Reservoir Hounds will exercise the utmost discretion and good judgement in caring for your pet and home. I am an Air Force veteran & previously, I worked in the Communications field advocating for people with disabilities, caring for both elderly & adults with intellectual disabilities.

Satisfied Customers

“We want to thank you for the wonderful care you provide for Charlie. We love the updates you send, the notes you leave, your attention to every detail. Like other pet owners, we adore our dog and want him treated with the utmost care. You provide that and more!” 

"Renee has been nothing but fantastic with our 2 yr old RAMBUNCTIOUS boxer, Rosie, who has been kicked out of at least 3 doggie daycares & our last dog walker fired us because Rosie gets so wound up. Renee has been awesome with her & without any claim to training, Rosie is definitely calmer & walking better on the leash. Renee is really good about bailing us out for extra visits/pet sitting without much notice. She's even cleaned up after our sensitive stomach pooch was sick all over the apartment. (Oh, and the other time she decided to decorate the entire apartment with the garbage). Can't recommend her enough..."
