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 M was wonderful with my cat Bella . It was obvious Bella was well cared for. And was happy when we came home from our trip . I would highly recommend Kathy M . She’s very kind and loving to Bella.
Terri is an amazing sitter. She sends thoughtful and descriptive messages daily about our two cats when we are out of town. My husband and I look forward to her daily messages. You can tell she definitely cares about the animals and has fun with the job. She is very communicative if there are issues and is very respectful of our apartment. We are so lucky to have Terri as our sitter!
I am new to Colorado and while searching for a pet sitting service I ran across Distinctive Pet Care. I chose them because I decided that any company doing business for over 20 years in a community must be doing something right. I just returned from a 9-day trip in which Kathy cared for my sweet cat, Starburst. Kathy's updates were so helpful, and the photos so enjoyable. But most importantly, when I got home from my trip, I could tell that Starburst had benefited tremendously from the human touch and good care given to her. It means the world to me. I will use your service over and over.
