Hi, my name is Erich. I’m a long-time resident of Atlanta and am a father, husband and overall lover of animals. Growing up internationally, the son of a bush pilot, I spent my youth surrounded by animal communities: from the wild and exotic in Africa to farm animals to my own loved ones. In 2001 I obtained a master’s degree in social work from Georgia State University and soon after that, dogs especially made it clear they wanted me to work with them so I became a pet sitter and haven’t looked back. In my spare time I enjoy playing with our four-legged friend Jax and we all enjoy playing and watching soccer together.
Hi all. I’m Dad to an 11 year old son, and 4 rescues; 2 dogs, and 2 cats. The story goes that the day I was born our family cat showed up. And ever since, I’ve been living with, and loving animals. I have lived and owned a home in East Atlanta Village for 25 years, and, also own a small dessert catering business. I am Mr. Mom most days, while my wife graciously works hard to keep the family insurance. Obviously, trusting your beloved pet with someone is a pretty big deal. So hopefully, you will trust me with yours.
Hi, I’m Debbie and I have been a professional pet sitter for over 10 years. I’ve been taking care of dogs since our first family dog in grade school…that was a long time ago! ;-). I’ve lived in Decatur for over 15 years. I’ve taken care of dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, chickens, fish and turtles. I particularly love dogs of all shapes, sizes and temperaments.
We currently have two dogs, Lulu & Sandy. My roommate works for a local pet rescue so we are always fostering puppies or other dogs that need us. I look forward to meeting you and your pets!
First and foremost…I’m a dog lover. My husband and I have 3 dogs: a 75 yr old yellow lab, 70 yr old golden retriever, and a 40 yr old beagle. I’m happiest when I am able to explore and experience new things with my dogs, whether it be walking new, unexplored parts of the city, hiking mountain trails, or going to the lake/river for a swim. As long as the dogs are in tow I know its going to be a good time. As I suspect is the case for most people, our dogs are a part of our family. As a result, I understand the importance of finding a person that you trust to treat your dog with the same level of joy and care that you would as the owner.
Professionally, I am a small business owner, working in the entertainment and film industry. I work from home, which provides me great flexibility to tweak my schedule to be available to take care of your pets and take your dog(s) for a stroll in the middle of the day on relatively short notice or if emergencies pop up. After all…It’s all about the pets!!!
Hi! I’m Stacy. I grew up with a menagerie of babes from dogs and cats to birds and a Boa with a couple of ferrets in the mix J. Animals are my true love and they are what brings me the most joy. Most recently, I have begun adding overnight/house sitting in the mix. I recently lost the love of my life, my Aussie mix, Maddie, at the grand age of 16. I can’t think of anything else I would rather do than to care and love on your furry babes and give you the peace of mind that your pet is getting the best care and love possible while you are at work or out of town. I love to play with high energy dogs that need that non stop play time and I have a special place in my heart for the geriatric guy or gal fur baby.
My name is Mark and since relocating from Alabama my family has lived in the Woodland Hills/Lavista Park area for the last 12 years. I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t have a relationship with animals. Growing up we always had family pets and my brothers and I spent summers working and playing on our grandparent’s farm. From sunrise to sunset we herded and chased everything that moved, until they chased us back. Moving to Atlanta and working primarily in real estate and marketing meant less time around the farm animals but more time with our pups, which is how we discovered Frogs to Dogs. Three years ago we rescued a sweet and loving Dogo Argentino named Mr. Waylon Jennings who needed a happy enviroment, a little socialization work, and positive attention. Luckily Frogs to Dogs was there to help with day camps and a wonderful pet sitter (Thank you Cydne!). Now I’m happy to provide others with that same attentive care and relentless positivity that helped our good old boy!
Hi everyone! I’m Ben. I’m a lifetime animal lover who spent my formative years around every kind of animal from dogs to rats to hissing cockroaches to goats and chickens and horses and pigeons. My animal care background pertains primarily to animal advocacy with and in association with various animal rights organizations and sanctuaries, including founding a local Food Not Bombs chapter, an organization that feeds homeless people healthy, hearty, and in our case vegetarian meals. A couple of years ago I moved to Atlanta to start a small film production company, which has given me plenty of free time to spend in the company of little furry friends once again. I have spent much of my life working long, unconventional hours, engrossed with the heartache of being away from my pets. Knowing that they were in the care of loved ones or trusted pet sitters always relieved my tensions greatly, and I am so thrilled to be given the opportunity to provide that same peace of mind to you all alongside Frogs to Dogs. Can’t wait to meet your babies!
My love for animals stems from a childhood obsession with guinea pigs. I grew up with guinea pigs and kitties and spent my summers as a kid grooming and riding horses. As a teenager I worked at my local Petco where I learned the basics of doggie nutrition and fell in love with a sweet ferret named Mel. I attended college at Appalachian State University where I studied Sustainable Development. My two loves are food and critters and protecting our environment helps create world in which healthy plants and happy animals can thrive. The last three and a half years I have worked in kennels in Atlanta supervising large groups of dogs at play. This experience taught me a great deal about canine body language. Outside of work, I spent my time raising a litter of nine bouncing baby bunnies. Currently, I live in Grant Park with my now very large bunny boy named Tito and a sweet kitty named Kitty! I am very excited to be a part of the Frogs team and cannot wait to meet your pets!
Hi I’m Lynsi, a huge animal lover and dog enthusiast living in Decatur. I’ve been pet sitting and dog walking for over 10 years. I’m experienced in working with small and big dogs, puppies, and elderly dogs. I understand the stress that accompanies leaving your pet in another person’s hands while you are away. As a courtesy I am more than happy to text or email photos of your fur babe to you as often as you like while they’re in my care. I’m happy to take care of any other animals that might need food, water, a walk, cuddles, or a little play time and attention. I also have experience with turtles, fish, snakes, chickens, birds, hamsters, rats, and kitty cats.
I currently have three loves of my own; two cats, Gazoo and Snowball, and a rescue pup named Toby. If you like I can bring Toby along to house drop ins for a bonus play date.
I’m very excited to be a part of the Frogs to Dogs team. Nothing makes me happier than being surrounded by animals and I look forward to meeting yours.
Hi, I’m Mandie. I’m from Augusta, GA and have been in Atlanta for 7 years. I am a nurse practitioner and I work with children with transplants. There are therapy dogs where I work and it is incredible to see how animals can comfort and heal your loved ones. I have always loved animals for as long as I can remember. I have a Garfield-esq orange tabby who likes to play with Q-tips and cause trouble. I recently adopted a 10-year-old pit bull who thinks she is a 90 pound lap dog and my shadow. My animals are definitely a part of my family and I understand the importance of peace of mind when you have to leave them. I look forward to meeting and caring for your furry family members.
