About us

Mission Statement

Our mission is to be the heart of pet care by facilitating stronger relationships between pets and their humans through our commitment to behavioral training and the psychology of the human-animal bond.

We all have that one thing we’re called to do – for us, that’s caring for animals.

As avid pet parents and busy professionals, we get it. We know how stressful it is worrying about the well-being of your fur baby when you’re not able to take care of them. You anguish over how your pet is doing every minute until you’re reunited. That anxiety sticks in the back of your brain like a chewed-up stick of gum.

You could hire a walker or sitter on-demand. But you risk putting your baby in the hands of someone inexperienced. What happens if your pet isn’t feeling so well that day? Or they aren’t behaving as they should be?

We combine 20+ years of experience with training in animal behavior and psychology to provide the high-quality service we would want for our pets. Our mission is to be the heart of pet care by facilitating stronger relationships between pets and their humans through our commitment to behavioral training and the psychology of the human-animal bond.

Being in business since 1998 means we’ve seen it all, and we’ve cared for it all. That means no matter what side of the bed your pet woke up on that day, we can handle almost anything that comes our way. After all, we’re the only pet care business in Seattle owned by a certified dog trainer and psychology professional.

Who Is Cosmic Home & Pet?

We live by the philosophy, “if you do what you love, you love what you do.” Animals are part of the fabric of who we are and taking care of them is what we’re meant to do.

Our first business was a home cleaning and organizing company called Cosmic Cleaners & More.

We transitioned into pet care because our love for animals led us to our true purpose. Once our clients asked us to watch their pets while they were away, we knew it was time to start Cosmic Home & Pet.

Over time, we’ve worked through many challenges.

We built a small business in a fast-growing city. We fought the stereotypes and battles unique to being a women-owned business. We’re always adapting to our customers’ needs to provide the best experience possible.

Partnering with us is like adding an extension to your family – except without all the awkward drama. Imagine how it would feel to leave your pet at home without having to worry about their well-being. Or how it would feel to have a dog who listens and follows your commands. That’s what we want to provide for you.

If Only Pets Could Talk…Here’s What Their Parents Say:

We have been using Cosmic since our dog was 2 months old which was 2 years ago. They are by far the best and we’ve used a few of their services – walking, boarding and training. Our dog is better behaved and well taken care of in their hands. While we love our friends and neighbors, we prefer to board our dog with Cosmic. We also LOVE the group walks our fur baby goes on. She gets her exercise and makes so many pup friends!! How do I know? I check in on Cosmic’s Instagram, which they update all the time :).  Thank you guys for being the best!!

Having two elderly, opinionated, adorably annoying rescues that have lived in many urban settings with me, I can say easily that I’ve had my fair share of dog walkers and sitters over the years.  Jaime, Brea and their crew are a breath of fresh air. Knowing their visits will be thorough and timely is a given but Jaime ALWAYS knows my schedule (even better than me at times), sends photos, has learned their quirks and more subtle language, is very communicative, keeps them safe, let’s me know if she sees even the smallest change in their mood or physical condition. Love is earned with old dogs and EVERY photo Jaime sends me shows my ‘heart on eight legs’ looking at her through her lens with utter love and affection. We are blessed to not only have our dog walker visit every day for all the contracted time-but also my furry misters get a friend to visit them without fail.
