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

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.

Client Relations Manager
Morgan here! I am a Parkview alumni and college graduate who majored in public relations. I also coach volleyball for Providence Christian Academy. I am a proud pet mom to 2 dogs and 1 cat. Since childhood, I have always loved animals of all shapes and sizes. I don’t know what life would be like without them. I often find myself making budding relationships with fellow pet owners at dog parks. Aside from quality time with my pets, some of my other hobbies include playing volleyball, spending time with family and friends, working out and event planning. I look forward to getting to know you and your pets and hope to make a lasting, great impression.

Pet Sitter/Dog Walker Team
Since taking an early retirement from the financial department of a Fortune 500 company I was seeking fulfilling work that would stimulate me and allow me to pursue my passions. Having had several dogs including mixed breed Black Labs, a beagle/collie mix, Cocker Spaniels and numerous cats I decided I would love to care for animals on a regular basis. This brought me to 2 Paws Up Inc. I’m attentive to animal needs and devoted to the proper care of them. Whether this means daily walks and feedings, clean up, play activity or vet trips I’m willing and able to provide the care you desire for your cherished furry family members. Experience has taught me that your home’s security is a primary concern and I understand the need to be sure your home is left in the manner that you desire as it relates to lighting, home security systems, and proper heating and cooling as requested. My hobbies include traveling and music, as I’m a moderately accomplished guitar player (he said modestly). I look forward to meeting you and your pet(s) soon
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
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.
I enjoy helping others, crocheting, as well as spending time with my family.
I’m very excited to be a part of 2 Paws Up Inc and look forward to loving and caring for your pets.
Hi, I’m Ivey! I am a native Georgia resident. I’m a dog mom to a rescue chihuahua mix named cocoa. As long as I can remember I’ve always had a pet. Taking care of animals has always been my passion. I can remember bringing home the class rabbit from preschool to take care of more times than my other classmates. Since then I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian. I am currently studying to be a veterinary assistant. Soon my dream will become a reality. I chose to work with 2 paws up to gain more experience in my field while doing something I love. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn while I love and care for your pet(s).
