The YBFF Staff

YBFF Owner - Janice

Owner and Founder

Hi, I'm Janice, owner and founder of YBFF. Animals have always been an integral part of my life. I am a Colorado native and have, since childhood, owned pets of various types ... dogs, cats, hamsters, birds, bunnies, fish, horses, goats, and a couple of raccoons. I owned and showed quarter horses throughout my youth. I am the proud Mom of Buster, a Dalmation, Hank, a lab/plot hound mix, and Avery, a very cool cat. After many years working in the corporate world, I came to the conclusion that I was missing something...I was missing animals...there is nothing better than working with animals. Large or small, indoor or outdoor, much happiness does indeed come from pet ownership and interaction with animals. With my extensive corporate background, YBFF was launched in 1999 to combine business skills with my love of animals. I have found my true happiness.

YBFF Staff Member - Debra

Office & Client Relations Manager

Hello, my name is Debra and it is a great pleasure to be working here as part of the great YBFF team. I grew up in the Denver area and after a few re-locations, I have come back to this beautiful city with all my pawed children in tow. I have done most of my work with big corporations, which is where I gained most of my experience in office operations and client relations. I have experience in developing, organizing and maintaining various systems and will bring that experience to YBFF. My goal is to help make YBFF the best team when it comes to caring for your pets.


YBFF Staff Member - Shirley

Full Time Dog Walker/Pet Sitter & Field Manager

Hi, my name is Shirley and I am so excited to join this amazing team of animal lovers! I have lived in Colorado most of my life and have owned a variety of pets which have included dogs, cats, birds, fish, bunnies, lizards, goats and horses. My animal family currently is a Bernard puppy (Rosy) and a Newfoundland/Lab (Sarge). I also fulfilled my childhood dream of owning horses when I added three miniature horses (Bo, Blaze, and Domino) to my family. It is a lot of fun walking them with my pups, we sure get some funny looks! I have been married for 27 years, have 5 children, and 4 grandkids who I absolutely adore. I feel blessed every day that I am able to spend time loving your pets.

  YBFF Staff - Jennifer

Full Time Dog Walker/Pet Sitter

Hey Pet Parents! My name is Jennifer, and I absolutely love being a part of the YBFF team. It is an honor to know that you trust us to look after your furry children, and I have already fallen in love with so many of our clients’ pets. I am originally from Texas, and moved out to Colorado in 2012 to continue my education. I am currently a full-time undergraduate senior as well, working towards a degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. My passion for the “unconditional love” relationships is the reason I love animals so much. We could all learn how to love a little better from those four-legged critters that love us so well. If I am not walking pups or in school, you’ll find me hiking in the mountains with Treach (pictured above), my boyfriend and buddies. I am excited to make buddies with your best friends. Your family pets always make my day!

  YBFF Staff - Scarlett

Full Time Dog Walker/Pet Sitter

I am a Colorado native and lover of nature and all animals. At home I have an 18 year old cockatiel who knows a few whistles, a loving kitty, and an energetic son. I’m a butterfly enthusiast and have put in many hours volunteering at the Butterfly Pavilion. I am currently working on my first novel. I can’t wait to meet your furry, scaly, or feathered friends!

YBFF Staff - Janice

Part Time Dog Walker/Pet Sitter

Hey! My name is Janice and I’m thrilled to be a part of a team of animal lovers. I moved to Colorado from Ohio in late 2012 after graduating college with a BA Fine Arts and getting married. Growing up I always had pets; dogs, cats, chickens, snakes, etc. I knew that wouldn’t change when I got to Colorado, bringing one sassy housecat (Sparta). I only lasted 2 months before my family grew, adding a loving Shiba Inu (Brego) to the mix, followed 6 months later by another (Cedar). I ended up marrying my high school sweetheart and I have a deep rooted passion for writing and literature. I enjoy spending my free time exploring the Colorado outdoors, all of which is very new to me - though I won’t say no to a night with Netflix and frozen waffles.

  YBFF Staff - Marilyn

Part Time Dog Walker/Pet Sitter

Let me introduce myself, I’m Marilyn and I’m really looking forward to spending time and getting a little exercise with your pets. I currently have two dogs, a Jack Russell terrier and an English bulldog. I also have a salt-water aquarium, which is a perpetual challenge, but I love the fish. My husband and I have lived in Colorado for over 25 years and have two grown children. As a stay-at-home mom for many years, I had a menagerie of pets I was always caring for ranging from hamsters to an English Mastiff. My other interests include gardening, golf, and travel. I also seem to have an endless list of home improvement projects

   YBFF Staff - Scott

Part Time Dog Walker/Pet Sitter

Hello! My name is Scott. I moved to Colorado from Maine in August and I've been loving every minute of it! I absolutely enjoy spending my time with your animals, they have an endless amount of love to give - it's infectious and makes me happy. In my "me" time I enjoy finding a nice hike, playing/watching tennis, or listening to my vinyls. Thank you for choosing YBFF because that means there's another lovely animal I get to meet!

   YBFF Staff - Michael

Part Time Dog Walker/Pet Sitter

Greetings and salutations, my name is Michael. Being part of such a great team means I will be bringing my A game to the care and treatment of your beloved furry critters. I've lived in Colorado for most of my life, but recently I moved to the city to attend college in hopes of getting my BA in business management. As a child I was lucky enough to be given my baby Rosie, a golden retriever with a heart of gold who's only goal in life was to get attention. She, with the later addition of another two cats, Dash and Violet, concreted my love/respect for animals. It pushed me to volunteer my time at pet shelters and humane society's alike. So whenever your pet is in my time slot, never fear, just know that your bundle of joy is safe and sound.

  Kristin - YBFF Staff

Seasonal Dog Walker/Pet Sitter

Hi! My name is Kristin and I’m so excited to be part of the YBFF team! I was born and raised in Colorado and couldn’t be more happy to call it home. This past fall I attended the University of Colorado, Boulder. I love all animals no matter the shape or size! My passion for animals became clear to me at the age of six with my love for horses. I have been riding and competing in the English show circuit for 11 years and was heartbroken when the day came for me say ‘goodbye for now.’ In my spare time when I wasn’t out at the barn I could be found enjoying Colorado’s outdoor beauties whether it be hiking, biking, or snowboarding I love them all! I couldn’t be more thrilled that I’ve been given the opportunity to be a part of your pet’s life and I look forward to meeting you!

Overnight Pet/Home Sitter

Hi my name is Coretta and I am a 10 year resident of the Denver area. Originally from the Pacific Northwest where I lived next to cows, horses, and livestock all of my life. Growing up in Eastern Washington in the country, I often ran and played with my dog Cheetah throughout my childhood and often miss those days. Now living in the Denver I have recently finished my undergraduate degree and have been house and pet sitting for friends for over 5 years. It brings me great joy and delight to be able to care for your pets while you are away from them. Hopefully I will be able to provide relief for pet owners knowing that their loved pet is in good hands and well taken care of. Looking forward to becoming friends with your pet!
