In the Beginning

Kaleigh V, owner of KMV and Friends Pet Sitting, began her career working in hotels and restaurants. She began to feel guilty about leaving her dog, Sadie Mae, for multiple long shifts and began thinking of other careers that allowed more time with her dog. She was always inspired by the movie Hotel for Dogs and began brainstorming how she could make that her reality.

After leaving the hotel world, she accepted a part time Summer job at a doggy daycare. During her time there, she witnessed how stressed some of the canine guests were. “There’s got to be a better way!”, she thought. She left her Summer job and began pet sitting in clients’ homes. She loved how calm and relaxed the pets were in their own home environment. From there, KMV and Friends Pet Sitting took off.
