Cari Conine
Owner of Woody’s Pet Watch

Hello animal lovers!  Welcome to Woody’s Pet Watch. I’m Cari Conine, owner of Woody’s Pet Watch.  We are a network of professional pet sitters and dog walkers in Omaha, Nebraska!  

I’ve been an animal lover my whole life!  I’ve shared my life with many dogs, cats, birds and horses. Woody was my amazing Border Collie and of course, why the business got it’s name.  Sadly, Woody passed after 13 fabulous years but his name continues on in my commitment to animals.  


Meet my current pet family…

Sam, the sweet, blue eyed Shepard/Husky rescue from Hands, Hearts and Paws.  And Raleigh, the ball-obsessed Golden Retriever.

So…how did all this get started???

Well, I left my career as a police detective in Aurora, Colorado in 2006.  I moved to the best little city in the mid west…Omaha, Nebraska.  I’ve always had a passion for animals so I knew my career change needed to involve working with pets.

I started by walking a few dogs during the lunch hour for various clients around the city. Before long, I got requests to do in-home pet sitting, so I became certified as a professional pet sitter.  Soon my part time hobby turned into a thriving business!

It wasn’t long before I crossed paths with other animal loving people who seemed to have the same interests and passions for animals.  I knew there were a lot of clients out there who needed quality care for their pets.  I couldn’t help them all by myself and knew I needed to find more people like me to fill the demand for pet sitters. 

Of course, the old “cop” in me is diligent about making sure the pet sitters are good, honest and reliable people who I’d trust with my own pets and home.  All of the pet sitters have gone through a thorough criminal background check and are bonded and insured.  You’ll get to meet your pet sitter upfront and at no cost to you before you commit to any services.
