Our Professional Team

Certified Professionals | Background Checked

Everyone on the 2 Paws up Inc pet sitting team is dedicated to you our clients!

Our team of professional pet sitters is not just picking up pet sitting jobs here and there. Each team member is an employee who goes through extensive training before entering your home and caring for your pets. Your team pet sitter continues to receive continuing education through fetchfind with weekly online training that comes to their inbox every Friday.

For an extra layer of protection, every client is assigned a primary pet sitter and a backup pet sitter. If there is not enough time for you to meet both, rest assured the primary pet sitter will be sure the backup pet sitter provides the same loving protection to your pets and home.

We thrive on the relationships we build. These are just a few reasons we invest in employees for our team, and we can avoid the limitations of hiring a team of subcontractors also know as independent contractors. Each professional pet sitter goes through a thorough screening and background checks before joining the team.

5 Reasons To Choose Us for Pet Sitting and Dog Walking

1. Our dog walkers and pet sitters are employees and not independent contractors.

2. Our training does not stop once they have been hired.

3. Back up procedures and internal systems ensure consistent care.

4. We provide one on one pet care.

5. We are available 365 Days a year for Pet Sitting, Dog Walking, and Overnight services.

Training Manager

Hello Friends! My name is Chanelle Pennington. I am a Brookwood graduate and I am currently enrolled in school to become a veterinary technician. I live in the Covington area close to my family. I have a four-year-old Brittany Spaniel who I adore endlessly. I have had him since he was eight weeks old. On weekends you can find us on nature trails, hikes, or swimming in a local creek. My dream dog is a Great Dane; I love their goofy personalities and their unique colors. When I’m not spending time with Brody, I enjoy doing various DIY crafts, teaching dance to kids, and spending time with my family. I recently began working with epoxy resin for wall hangings.

Khahlia

Khahlia

Team Sucess Manager

My name is Khahlia, or Kiya for short, and I am a home grown Georgia girl. Through my 25 years of being alive, I have always owned an animal. Everything from pigs, to dogs, to snakes. My first love has always been animals and with that love comes the want and need to always be around them. I currently own, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 ferret, and 1 snake. All but the snake have medical needs that I tend to. My goal in life is to get a degree that enables me to be around animals of all kinds and being there to care for your furry, scaley, or feathery friend is the first step to obtaining my goal. I am excited to meet both you and your pets and help in any way I can.

Heather

Heather

Pet Sitter

Hey there, I’m Heather! I am a Gwinnett County native and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. I am a proud mama of 7 dogs (yes, 7!) and one very talkative cat. For as long as I can remember, I have always had pets…dogs, cats, birds, horses…you name it. They bring me so much joy and keep me laughing with their amazingly unique personalities. In my free time I do CrossFit and weightlifting, venture to the park with the pups, and hang in my breakfast nook with a cup of coffee and my furry kiddos. I am super psyched to meet you and your furry family, and to give your pets the same love and care as I do my own.

I grew up in Gwinnett County, but I briefly lived in Illinois for 6 years after high school. I have always had a love for animals and have been in the pet care and veterinary field for over 6 years. My fiancé and I have 3 dogs (Shadow, Piper, and Pennie) and a rabbit (Nox). I have a special interest in special needs animals because one of my own pets, Pennie, is paralyzed and has her own wheelchair. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends, family, and my fur babies.

Jessica

Jessica

Pet Sitter

All my animals call me mom, but everyone else calls me Jess. I lead a very interesting life with animals. Currently, I have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 5 goats, 2 pigs, and over 80 chickens. I run my own little private rescue for baby animals. Whether there isn’t enough milk for them at birth or mama isn’t interested, I take them in. I bottle feed them until they are at the correct age and are healthy enough for being placed into a new home to live a happy life 🙂 I do have my own fur babies that stick around and watch their mom try to save everything; 2 dogs (a Mastiff and a Jack Russell, both rescues) and 2 cats (you guessed it, they are rescues as well). My day revolves around animals and taking care of them, and I couldn’t be more excited to be invited into your pets life as a caregiver and friend. I’m looking forward to meeting you and your fur babies!

Kandi

Pet Sitter

Hey there, I’m Kandi! I was born and raised in Lilburn, GA and am very proud to be a Georgia Bulldawg! In my spare time, I hang out with family and friends which includes playing cards/board games, laughing and joking, and just enjoying life by making the best out of every situation. Growing up, I always had dogs – even up to a year ago (Hershey). I was not a cat owner until about 2 years ago when I met an abandoned and very sweet kitten (KitKat). Since then I’ve rescued 4 cats, 2 who are still with me (JellyBean & ButterScotch). In the daytime, I work in the corporate world as a Database Coordinator. I’ve been at the same company for almost 14 years, being promoted twice. I am very loving and loyal in my professional and personal life. If I am blessed with the opportunity to care for your baby(ies), I promise, I will do my best to love them while you are away. Thank you for reading my profile and possibly giving me a chance.

Hi! My name is Sarah! I was born and raised through childhood in Stone Mountain; my family and I moved to Lilburn when I became an adolescent and I’ve been in Lilburn for the majority of my life ever since (over 20 years now). I am a very proud Georgia Dawg! I completed my BBA and Master’s at UGA in Accounting and became a licensed CPA in 2011. However, I have always been an animal lover! There has always been a pet in my household (both dogs and cats) – currently, I have two cats: Charlie and Louie, who are brothers and are endless entertainment. Due to an injury years ago, I had to leave my office job and now that I am able to work again I wanted to be
around pets instead of sitting at a desk because pets are an absolute joy to be around! With that being said, I am excited to meet you and to be a part of your pets’ world!

Hello first a little introduction-My name is Jade and my greatest wish is to provide you with the very best of care for your “fur” family members so you have 150% peace of mind while you attend to other matters of life like “adulting”. I’m an optimist, outgoing, creative,r esponsible, kind animal Lover and it would be an honor for me to be entrusted with your fur children.I can’t wait to get to know you and your precious fur family whilst spending quality time with them.

I believe each animal has their own personality and preferences -it takes a little love and care but once they’ve revealed themselves to you-it’s for life.A close family friend of mine runs an NGO for abused animals, and we regularly fostered abused/abandoned animals before they found their forever home.I have observed and learnt animal behavior through years of working with abused animals and having fur creatures at home.I enjoy walking,running,hiking and spending time with family including our own Fur creatures called Clementine (she’s a Chow Chow) , all whilst studying to become a Surgical Technician.

How can I be of service to you?
