Janine G. joined the Guardian Pet Sitters’ team in September 2016. Janine is a Texas native and lives in The Colony. She works full-time for Engineering Company in Coppell, and attends school to obtain a BA in Business. Janine chose to seek out pet sitting because she believes generally animals are some of the most genuine creatures you will ever meet. “They either like you or they don’t and they really do have a sense of recognizing good people. They make me laugh and can put a smile on my face as soon as I see them and for the most part they’re usually always glad to see me!” I like giving someone the ease that if they have to travel their pet will have the same care as they would if their owner was at home. Janine and her husband have an American Bulldog (Loki), and 2 pigs (Hammond and Rueben). They are fun to watch and it is fascinating how they interact with each other. They are a part of our family. During my down time, I really enjoy reading, working out, watching football and baseball, and pretty much spending as much time as I can outdoors and with my family. Janine serves The Colony, Castle Hills and far North Dallas.
