Cara Ashnault graduated from the University of Hartford in 2005 and after 2 years of working in a veterinary clinic and a dog bakery she couldn't help but see the tremendous need for reliable and professional dog walking services and pet sitting services in Farmington .

With this vision in mid, in 2006 Whiskers While You Work was formed. Since then it has grown to employ some of the best pet sitters in the area.

We treat your pets, and your homes, like our own.
