Deployed in Turkey as an administrative clerk in the army, and thus charged with defending every civilian back home, Wendy Waghorn could only focus on the safety of one: her beloved black labrador. Upon her return, Wendy swore an oath to ease other owners' minds about leaving their pets alone by founding Kingston Pet Sitting Service in 2003. Since then, Wendy has amassed a client list of thousands of pets, from dogs and cats to horses and chickens, supplementing her lifelong love of animals with college courses on animal behaviour, nursing techniques, and pet first aid.
Wendy and her small staff walk, feed, groom, and attend lovingly to critters during daytime visits, concluding each with a report of their behaviour and feedback on their novel's latest chapter. Caretakers always walk dogs individually in their own neighbourhood, ensuring a safe, familiar setting. Kingston Pet Sitting Service is a member of the Kingston Humane Society and World Society for the Protection of Animals.
