Meet the Pet Sitters


Tracie Gallagher, Owner
The Pet Nanny

Hi, my name is Tracie Gallagher and I have been a professional pet sitter and dog walker in Charlottesville since 2007. I started my company Pet Nanny Services shortly after moving here because I immediately saw a need for quality in-home pet care.

I became certified in Red Cross Pet First aid and CPR in 2010 and in order to keep up to date with things happening in my profession, I belong to a national pet sitting organization (NAPPS – National Association of Professional Pet Sitters), attend pet sitting conferences, and read journals in this field.

I enjoy keeping pets happy and safe; I am always learning from pets’ innate ability to be naturally happy with whatever is given to them. I am awed over the hundreds of pet parents that have trusted me with the care of their animals and so grateful to have had the experience of doing so. I enjoy helping people – this is one of the things I love most about pet sitting.

Pet Nanny Services keeps me very busy but when I have free time, you can find me walking my own adopted Yorkie, Skipper, watching football, cooking, hiking or reading.
