Professional Pet Sitter/Owner of TPS

Yasushi Jay Takizawa (Taki) 

I’ve always loved animals and taking care of them is my passion. I’ve been a professional Pet Sitter since 2017, but have been looking after pets my whole life. Whether it’s walking your dog, feeding your cat, or taking care of your pet while you’re away, I always provide a nurturing and safe environment.
