Jen McEachen

Pet Sitter/Owner of Pampered Critters

I grew up with an assortment of animals including cats, dogs and rabbits. I began "hobby" sitting for a few people in 2004. Having graduated from the College of New Caledonia in 2008 with certification in Applied Business Technology, I was awakened in early June 2010 by a dream - the dream that ultimately set me on the path to establishing Pampered Critters. I've always had a strong compassion towards animals and clients, and really, pet and house-sitting seemed a far more suitable career path for me.

My interests mainly surround animals, books and news, emergency management, and some recreational activities including bowling, Toastmasters, watching curling on TV and socializing with friends. I am employed part-time as a Volunteer Resource Services Co-ordinator at the Canadian Red Cross and recently graduated with a certificate in Emergency Management through the Justice Institute of BC..

The Furry Assistant

My job is a serious one. Mom needs me to help her at times as she can’t see very well. I am a cream-coloured yellow labrador with the most soft, velvety ears. My shining, outgoing personality attracts people to come over to say hello to me during my "off" duty moments, even though I am wearing the harness. I enjoy chewing on nylabones, sleeping on my mat in front of the heater, and bringing a smile to everyone's faces when I happily romp through freshly fallen snow.
