Hi, I’m Kaitlyn, the owner of Pawsitivity Pet Services. I have the best job in the world; I get to spend my time caring for animals. I've had a love for animals for as long as I can remember. Growing up I had rabbits, frogs, hamsters, and fish. I got my first dog for my twelfth birthday and knew that I was meant to work with animals.I started this company because my dog is my whole world. I wanted to be there for animals when their humans couldn't be. I have experience caring for dogs, cats, horses, fish, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, chickens, ducks and birds. I am a graduate of the Canine Training and Behavior Specialist certification program at Animal Behavior Institute. Other classes I've taken include canine nutrition and canine aggression. Completing these courses have provided me with the knowledge to take the best possible care for your pet. I am also certified in pet first aid and CPR. My love for my own dog has inspired me to care for all pets as my own; pets are family! I live in Leesburg and take pride in the care I provide for my neighbors pets.

Hi! My name is Millie. I retired from the Federal Government (USAF) in April of 2021 where I held a top-secret clearance for 10+ years. Prior to my government work, I worked for an adult Neurology group as Practice Manager for 10+ years. I have two daughters and 4 grandchildren that keep me active! My husband and I live in Leesburg and participate in local organizations. Since retirement, I have been looking for something fun to do with some of my extra time. I love all animals and have had lots of pets over the years. I’ve raised dogs, cats, rabbits, hermit crabs, turtles, hamsters, and fish just to name a few. I look forward to taking care of your pets and will treat them as if they were my own with love, kindness and compassion.
Hi, my name is Ayslinne. I moved from Michigan to here in Virginia to start something new. My passion for dogs is something that holds a special place in my heart. Growing up, I have only had cats whom I love, but knew that I would love to work with dogs. I previously worked at a doggy daycare back in Michigan. It was great because I got to pretend like they were my own. I also did some pet siting on the side. Currently, I am working to become a dog trainer and am an apprentice with a local trainer. Training has been something I’ve been interested in for a while;I love the one on one bonding. I can’t wait to walk your dog and grow a relationship with them as well as you.
Hi, I'm Lindsay! I grew up in Stafford County, Virginia, on a horse farm with lots of cats and dogs running around. I currently live in Leesburg with my cat, Cricket, and still have my miniature horse, Rocky, in Bluemont. Horses and the sport of eventing have always been my passion. I've worked at The Chronicle of the Horse magazine in Middleburg, Virginia, for 10 years after graduating from George Mason University. I enjoy writing, photographing horses, and traveling the country and the world for my job. I'm currently in between horses and wanted to spend some more time with animals, so Pawsitivity Pet Services seemed like the perfect place!
Hi, I'm Iris! I live here in Leesburg with my three dogs (all rescues) and one husband (I got him the normal way). I have a full-time government job, but my love of dogs had me looking for something just like this, part-time. I’ve also taken care of cats and am learning about chickens (bok!), thanks to my mom and my husband. I’m looking forward to meeting your dogs, kitties, and chickens and help you take care of them when you are not able to - in the way I’d like someone to take care of mine.
Hello! I’m Betsy! My family and I have called Leesburg home for the past 12 years. We settled here after my husband’s military career. We have 3 children and 2 corgis. I teach preschool (so I’m very experienced in herding cats) and I also love animals and have enjoyed pet sitting for neighbors over the years. I am excited to be part of the Pawsitivity Pet Services team and to give your pets love and care when you are away. My dogs are very beloved members of my family and I promise to care for your pets the same way I care for my own.
Hello! I'm Robin! I've been a NoVa resident my whole life. I'm currently attending NoVa Community College. I have a special soft spot for giant breeds and have experience caring for elderly or disabled critters. I have grown up with a pack of mastiffs since preschool! I was a sectionally competitive figure skater for most of my teenage years and for the past four years served as a Linda Paley-Hume award winning team captain. I've volunteered at FOHA (friends of homeless animals) for almost a year now as a cat sitter and dog walker, as well as grown up spending lots of time caring for various barn animals on my grandfather's farm. All the critters I've met have been loved and special in some way, they always seem to bring us silly humans down to earth and humble us. I can't wait to meet your furry (or feathery!) children!
Hi, I'm Brianna! My bio is coming soon.
