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.

Autumn "Bambi" Pinkerton

Lead Certified Dog Trainer

Hello! I’m Bambi. I grew up in Pflugerville, Texas, and moved to DeKalb County in October 2020. My dogs (and cat) are my family, and I’ve always been a bit of a “crazy dog person” where the more – the merrier!

I’ve been working in the pet industry for the past 4 years, starting out as a kennel tech at a doggie daycare. At the daycare, I was introduced to dog training on a professional scale and fell in love with it. I had grown up around a lot of dogs but hadn’t seriously considered working with them as a career until that point.

In the summer of 2020, I attended the 3-month program at the Starmark Academy for Professional Dog Trainers in Hutto, Texas. I received my certification as a Canine Training & Behavior Specialist after my schooling. My schooling was the greatest summer of my life – I got to work with rescue dogs and learn so much. The program also confirmed to me that dog training was my passion; and my path in life.

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.
