Distinctive Pet Care Services
Welcome to Distinctive Pet Care Services and thanks for visiting our page! We are glad you would like to explore a different type of pet care for your furry friends. We have been providing top-notch pet sitting and pet care in the Littleton community since 1995 (yes, that is over 20 years!) and the Best Choice as an alternative to pet boarding.
Advantages of Your Pet
Staying in Their Own Home
No exposure to illnesses such as kennel cough, canine flu & parasites. No extra vaccines your pet doesn’t need.
Reducing their stress by allowing them to stay on their own schedule
Being cared for by a trained, responsible pet sitting professional that will treat your pets as if they were their own.
Reduces the pet owner’s stress by providing crime deterrence by alternating lights, picking up mail, etc.
No hassles of dropping off and picking up your pets during certain hours.
What makes Distinctive Pet Care different?
What makes us different than other services (especially Rover, Wag! or a “hobby” pet sitter, etc.) Our business is run by Dawn Olson, a former Veterinary Technician (see Meet The Sitters Page) that has many years of professional pet care & also currently owns & operates The Ken Caryl Pet Spa. We hand pick our pet sitters & match them up with our client’s needs. They are trained, pass a background check and we only hire people that Dawn would allow to care for her own pets!
In October of 2017 we converted all of our pet sitters from contractors to EMPLOYEES! Why is this better for you? As a business that has served this community for many years, we have always wanted to provide the BEST services with the BEST pet care givers. As employees, our pet sitters qualify for Workers Compensation Insurance, Unemployment, SSI, Liability Coverage and other benefits that do reduce your risk as a home owner. We also have more leeway to require continuing education, training (such as Pet First Aid & CPR Training) and more supervision. We also use a software called Pet Sitter Plus that allows you to update your pet’s information & care, directly book your pet reservations needs and provides our pet sitters with their daily schedules, they check-in and out of each visit! We even send you visit notes (& pictures) directly through the software to your email about our visits, which our client’s love!
Clients absolutely love the convenience and security that our pet sitting service provides and we work 365 days per year. . . all we can ask is that you TRY IT! We are used to handling pets with separation anxiety and have been known to sit on the floor and hand-feed them!
We recommend you explore our website, as it provides answers to many questions, but don’t hesitate to give us a call, we would be happy to discuss your specific needs because we realize that every pet is different and requires individualized care so they are able to have a successful at home experience.

Kathy did such a wonderful job taking care of my cat, Roxie. Roxie usually hides, but with Kathy she began to greet her! She "allowed" Kathy to pet her which is an indicator how great Kathy is with kitties. Actually, she began to "ask" for more ear rubs by putting her paw on Kathy. Kathy sent me pictures every day and I could see that Roxie was very contented which speaks volumes since Roxie is not often contented with other people (even family members). Kathy also looked after the house and plants and did a great job with that as well. I recommend Distinctive Pet Care whole heartedly and without any reservations and plan to use them again. Oh! and I know that if any emergency would arise Kathy and Distinctive Pet Care would handle it appropriately and professionally. Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you Bianca! It was great to have you as a client again after all these years! Dawn
Having peace of mind, before and during your vacation is important. Holly is a pleasure to work with: a true professional, a caring, dedicated person who provides top-notch service to our pets and to us. We enjoyed receiving daily updates and pictures. The best cat-care we've ever experienced before and during our vacation! Thank you, Holly!!
We are so happy with the caring services provided by Holly at Distinctive Pet Care. Being able to travel and know that we have a reliable and caring sitter looking after our pets and home has lifted a huge weight off of our shoulders. Thank you for caring for our pets as if they were your own!
