Our Sitters

Heidi Jaegers – Owner/Sitter

Heidi Jaegers (Owner)

After getting her undergrad in Cultural Anthropology from The Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College of Florida Atlantic University, Heidi dove head first into the insurance business. She soon discovered that it was not her passion and she continued in search of her niche, it was then that she found her calling. Friends and family started recommending her for pet sitting gigs while she was looking for a long-term career, then it dawned on her, a long-term career is not limited to a 9 to 5 desk job! She then consulted some friends and conducted some research and created Aja Pet Service. Now she is able to make her passion her career. Growing up, Heidi, had all kinds of furry and scaly pets that she called friends. (Horses, dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, goats, rabbits, fish, snakes, iguanas, turkeys, etc.) She loves all kinds of animals and makes sure that she gives every pet the same care and attention that she gives her own (borderline spoiling them).
 

Kaleigh – Sitter

KaleighHi everyone! My name is Kaleigh and I’m available for dog walking with Aja Pet Service. I’m a dog lover and owner. I adore my long-haired dachshund, Dexter, and often refer to him as my son or fur child. I’m a PE teacher and coach in Martin County, so my availability is typically limited to the summer months. Looking forward to meeting and working with you and your pups!
 
 
 

Alex – Sitter

My name is Alex and I’m located in West Palm Beach, in Old Northwood to be exact. I enjoy being around animals, I’m lucky to be around an adorable cat “Sprocket” at work and the best dog in the world “Beau” at home. I have a full time job during the day, so I would mostly be available for overnights or evening walks. I can on occasion be available for a quick afternoon walk as long as it’s close to downtown West Palm Beach. I look forward to getting to know your adorable animal children.
 

Alix- Sitter

AlixHello, my name is Alix. I have always deeply loved and respected animals. Growing up in the Caribbean I had pets of all kinds and felt a strong connection with all of them. As an adult I have traveled and lived all over the world, advocating for animals, often pet-sitting as a source of income and enjoyment. I have mostly cared for dogs, cats, horses, rodents, turtles, reptiles and birds, treating all of these animals as they were my own. When I lived in Canada, I worked at a chimpanzee sanctuary which was a very educational experience. I have also worked on farms in case you have a pet pig or cow or chicken! I recently settled in South Florida, work for a local nonprofit and am really looking forward to meeting you and your pets.

AshleyMy name is Ashley. Growing up I always had animals. From dogs and cats to guinea pigs and hamsters. I decided early on that I wanted to make a profession out of working with animals. I graduated with a zoology degree from Santa Fe College, which started my career. I’ve worked with domestic, exotic, and marine mammals. I also toured with 101 Dalmatians the musical as one of four dalmatian trainers.

RobertHello all! My name is Robert. I’m located in Palm Beach Gardens but originally from New York. I’m available for dog walking as well as pet sitting. Since a young age, I was instilled with an admiration and respect for all types wonderful and different creatures. Growing up we had dogs, cats, hamsters, birds, an assortment of reptiles, rabbits, fish..you name it! My fiancé and I currently have 3 dogs of our own with an additional 2 foster dogs. We love our pets and balance our lives around their well-being, so we know how hard it can be sometimes to find time to enjoy ourselves without worrying if they are alright. With that said, I look forward to helping you find the time to enjoy yourself, while knowing that your pets are in good hands.
