Tory & Jason are a husband and wife team that manage a team of pet care specialists that provide dog walking/pet sitting services in the greater Seattle are. As a veterinarian (Jason) and licensed veterinary technician (Tory) we are proud to be the only service of this type that offers comprehensive veterinary support to our team, ensuring your pets receive the best care possible even when you can’t provide that care yourself. As pet parents ourselves, we understand that animals are as distinct and individual as their human counterparts and aim to ensure their unique needs are being met. We also understand the trust that is required to allow somebody to enter your home and care for a member of your family. We have focused our professional lives on caring for dogs and cats in the veterinary hospital for over 10 years and are excited to be able to expand the care we can offer through our amazing team of Pet Care Specialists. We want to ensure that your pet is able to live their best life surrounded by people as devoted to their care as you are. You can rest assured that on those days where you can’t be there to provide aspects of your pet’s care yourself, your pet will receive the same high standard of care we expect for our own.

Pet Care Specialists

At Puget Sound Pets, we understand the importance of investing in the people we trust to care for your pets, unlike other pet care services, which primarily utilize independent contractors to provide services, all of our team members are employees. This allows us to provide guidance and support to ensuring our team can deliver the premiere care you expect when you invest in a pet care service such as ours.

Rebecca B.

Training Department Manager

Rebecca started training dogs in 2004 for conformation shows — think Westminster with less glamour. Her passion for establishing effective communication with dogs quickly expanded into training for and showing in obedience, rally, and agility trials. In 2006, she started assisting and then teaching obedience classes at a non-profit dog training club, and then began attending training and behavior seminars and workshops. In 2012 she started her own business based soley in positive reinforcement and clicker training, and earned her CPDT-KA professional dog training certification in 2018. Two years after moving to Seattle, she accepted a position at Ahimsa Dog Training and was granted the invaluable opportunity to further hone her skills in clicker training and create solutions for dog owners centered around the use of rewards. Rebecca’s training technique is best described as a practical marriage between traditional training principles of establishing structure and boundaries and contemporary training philosophies that capitalize on a dog’s motivation to work alongside humans.

I love providing personalized care for dogs and cats -- something I can do with Puget Sound Pets. Befriending and cultivating an individual relationship with an animal is a wholeheartedly rewarding experience. Your pet will notice the difference, and you will, too.

Bob F.

Pet Care Specialist

Retired from his position as King County Metro transportation planner where he designed both the bike-rack-on-bus and the jobs access program. Bob is a Seattle-native raised in the city’s Central Area and Rainier Valley. He's also a playwright and poet who loves dogs. Bob stays active walking the streets of his hometown as a part-time dog walker for Puget Sound Pets. He has raised and trained Shelties for over 20 years. An advocate for animal welfare, he has also been involved with animal rescue for more than 10 years. He began working for Puget Sound Pets about 8 years ago following the loss of his two border collies, Ami and Pepper both rescues.
Walking for Puget Sound Pets refocused me. The business is one of the most trusted in the Pacific Northwest. It bonded me with many new dogs. Walks are very calming and relaxing. We are intent on having a good, safe time as we explore their neighborhoods. In all these years, I’ve never had a dog that wasn’t important. There are moments before, during and after a walk where you can talk with a dog. They know they can trust you and others.

Jacob I

Office Manager

Hi,my name's Jacob. I have always felt a special connection with animals. Growing up, my family had a plethora of animals. We had two St.Bernards ( Berney and Barney), a Labrador ( Shelby), multiple cats and lots of rabbits. My father also has horses and we would often go for rides. As I grew up, I decided that a career in the veterinary field would be perfect for me. So in 2011, I enrolled in the Vet Tech program at PIMA. I graduated in 2013 with my AA in Applied Sciences. Ever since then, I have been working as an ER/ICU Licensed Vet Tech. While I enjoy the technical aspects, what I really love is nursing. What makes me happy is seeing animals get to leave the hospital, healthy and happy, and the owners reaction. I treat every animal like my own and I take extreme pride in that. While I'm not working, my wife and I take care our own two and four-legged animals. We have 3 year old twin boys(Raif and Jax)and two dogs ( Loki and Thora). I also love playing golf, watching both the Seahawks and the Sounders, and I'm a huge Star Wars nerd!

Amanda B.

Daytime & Overnight Pet Care Specialist

Hello! I'm Amanda and I moved to Seattle in June of 2019 from Hillsboro, Kansas! I've been through a variety of jobs to get through the end of high school and beginning of college, which has been great for finding out what I enjoy most! My passions and hobbies are mostly on the creative side including writing, painting, and especially photography! Growing up on a farm in the middle of nowhere meant I was able to be around a variety of animals. My family had cattle, chickens at one point, horses for a bit, a few cats, and many dogs. We had a lot of land so it was easy for us to help out stray dogs sometimes too! Sadly, my current apartment doesn't allow pets but I hope to have a dog, cat, and even a snake in the future! I can't wait to connect with all of your lovely fur babies through Puget Sound Pets!”

Xian C.

Hey, I’m Xian! I’m a graphic designer with a penchant for medical microbiology and plant-based cooking (though usually not both at once). I’ve spent most of my life learning to communicate with and care for people and animals with particular needs and interesting backgrounds, which has been both a privilege and a personal passion of mine. My partner and I currently have one incredible, sweet, former stray cat named Tuna, and another incredible but very sharp and very rambunctious kitten, named Beef. I’ve also owned mice, rats, and many, but not enough, hamsters. I always look forward to getting to know new pets!
