I am a very social, fun loving person; typically playing around, which keeps dogs entertained. In my spare time, I enjoy paddle boarding, weight training, and spending quality time with friends and family.
Kirsten is the ultimate animal lover! She is extremely active so the dogs she takes care of stay just as active with her. Kirsten brings the dogs she cares for to the dog park, not just for exercise, but to make friends!
I’m a pet lover… I absolutely love dogs and being outdoors, so dog walking and park visits are just my cup of tea! Hangin’ with Buddy® is unique in that we use the latest technology to enhance the experience of our customers. Our clients know when a visit is started and can see detailed notes and GPS tracking at the end of each visit. This additional measure of technology helps my buddy owners’ have peace of mind. I share photos and keep in constant contact during my care, which lets them know their babies are safe and happy!
We use technology you’d expect to see in a large corporate company, but it’s utilized by a locally owned and operated owner. We make each visit a personal experience that you can’t get from some large website or app. One of our core values is to always maintain continuous education so that we are the most trusted pet care professionals in the Tampa Metro area.
What Drives Us
As mentioned previously, I have a passion for supporting local small businesses within the Tampa area. Being an entrepreneur also gives me the flexibility to give back to my community. Hangin’ with Buddy® offers free pet services to elderly and sick individuals who may not have someone in their lives to lend a hand. This offering is our way of keeping community, people and pets the focus for future generations.
