OUR PROFESSIONAL PET NANNY TEAM
All our pet nannies complete an extensive interview process, pass a federal background check and join the team as employees plus are continually trained while working for us. You can rely on us to provide you with quality service or receive a 100% refund if dissatisfied.
If you are not familiar with the play by the same name, my name is pronounced “an-tig-uh-nee” or click here to listen to it pronounced on dictionary.com. My name means “in place of a mother” in Greek which describes perfectly the reason I started TAILored Pet Services. I know pets are important family members and I wanted to provide a motherly substitute to the furry babies in my care.
Born and raised in Western Washington, my love for animals evolved at a young age. I began informally pet sitting for friends and neighbors at age 10 (34 years ago). Growing up, my house was always filled with dogs and walking them became part of the normal family routine!
I worked in the newspaper industry for ten years before deciding I wanted to help make a difference in the lives of others. In 2004, I began working with numerous local non-profit organizations: Providence Hospice & Home Care, Village Theatre, the Snohomish County Center for Battered Women (now named Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County), Housing Hope and Cocoon House. After 5 years of working with agencies helping homeless people, I realized I wanted to work with animals so I traded my slacks/loafers for jeans/sneakers and started a dog walking and pet services company. I continue to make a difference in my community by taking part in events to support animal welfare organizations like the Animal Rescue Foundation of Everett and NOAH.

Pets are some of my favorite people! Growing up in the midwest, my family always had dogs (usually a german shepherd and a small breed dog), as well as an assortment of small animals like fish, birds, hamsters/gerbils, and guinea pigs. When I moved to Seattle in 1987 and started my own family, I continued to include dogs, cats, and eventually small livestock such as chickens and rabbits into our family life. In 2000, I moved to a 20 acre farm in Arlington where I lived/worked for over a decade raising pygmy goats, chickens, ducks, geese, and rabbits. Our family continued to include dogs and cats.
Currently, I live in Everett and have a small urban farm including chickens, guinea pigs and worms! And of course, my dear fur babies – Bella (10 year old terrier/cattle dog mix), Bindi (6 year old cocker spaniel/poodle mix), Bridget (1 year old golden doodle), and Siger (1 year old Siamese cat). I love talking to my pets and always show animals respect and love. I look forward to extending the same love, care, and respect to your furry companions while they are in my care while following your instructions to best meet their needs and exceed your expectations.
My hobbies include making herbal body care and pet products, gardening, baking, hiking, and back country 4×4 adventures!

Amy Everett 98201 & 98203 Dog WalkerI grew up locally in a loving family who always included some four-legged members. When I was young, we settled in the rural outskirts of Lake Stevens, back when it was still considered a small community. I spent my days roaming the area around our home, always accompanied by my faithful furry friends with tails ‘a waggin’. Wherever I went, my dogs were never far behind, the three of us sharing a bond that words cannot describe. Growing up like this, I learned how to put dogs at ease while in my company by tuning in to the ways they communicate through body language.
These precious critters deserve unconditional love and protection, and I will strive to exceed your expectations when it comes to caring for your fur-babies. I take my role in your dog’s life very seriously, and while in my care, your dog will be given the same level of attention and affection I would want for my own beloved companions.
All dogs find true joy in spending time outdoors during a walk and it gives me great satisfaction to be the one on the other end of the leash. I feel blessed to earn an income doing what I love, and I am truly honored to be entrusted with the care of your treasured pet.

My name is Trena and I have worked for Tailored Pet Services since April 2013 as a dog walker/ pet sitter/overnight pet nanny.
Prior to working for TPS, I was a Veterinary Technician for 23 years which is definitely a plus when it comes to pet sitting and dog walking!
Since I own two dogs and one cat, people often ask who looks after my critters while I am away. Rest assured, my family is in charge of my fur babies while I am away on overnight pet sitting visits.
My hobbies consist of baking, candle making, knitting, birding, gardening and paddle boarding. I love photography, mainly bird photography, but also scenic photography such as ocean settings, sunsets, mountains, and flowers. I also enjoy canine photography (portraits mostly). I enjoy hiking with my camera (always ready for that perfect shot) so I never leave home without my camera!
