About us


After being a psychotherapist in private practice for 16 years, Dotty Armstrong, founder of Dotty's Pet Sitting Svc, decided to give in to her life-long love of animals. Since 1992 Dotty and the pet sitters she hand-picked to work with her over the years have always had one goal, that is to make sure your pets are happy and safe.


PetSitter / Owner / Coordinator

I joined Dotty's in 2006. Although I was trained as a marine biologist, I was drawn to a number of other occupations as well. However, my passion has always been caring for animals of all kinds. It may be hard to hug a fish, but it was very easy for me to say "yes" in 2013 when Dotty asked me to be her manager. Dotty has since retired, left the business and is now happily spending more time with her own pets. However, we sitters are still here keeping Dotty's values, love of animals and caring style intact! When you contact us I will match you with the right pet sitter for your particular pets.
