KATY BO AND BRUNO
Katy and Bo, the owners, started Sit Stay Play Dog Walking and Pet Sitting because of their deep love for animals and the joy that pets bring to our lives. Katy grew up with all kinds of pets from dogs and cats to horses here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She graduated from Cascia Hall and then attended UCLA graduating in 2010 with a Bachelor’s degree in Physiological Sciences. Katy is Pet CPR and First Aid Certified. Bo is originally from Newport Beach, CA and his fascination with animals began at a very early age. He was often found catching lizards and snakes when he was young and not much has changed since. He truly does have a special connection with animals and they all just love being around him! Bo graduated from UCLA in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in History. Katy and Bo are the proud owners of their two dogs, Bruno and Willy, and their tortoise, Bruce.
SYLVIA AND MICHAEL
Sylvia is incredibly grateful to be part owner of Sit Stay Play! What could be better than hanging out with dogs and cats all day? Throughout her life, she has cared for dogs, cats, fish, mice, guinea pigs and even snakes. To her, her fur babies are her kids so she definitely understands how very important her job is as a pet sitter! Along with her pet CPR certification, Sylvia has a bachelor’s degree in music. Her husband, Michael, is also an avid animal lover. He has raised and loved many pets throughout his life, but his favorites have definitely been his cats!
Sylvia and Michael have the joy of raising their two dogs; a malti-poo named Cooper and a miniature poodle named Tucker, and their cat, Beanie. They look forward to sharing their love of animals with your pets and carrying on the standard of care and compassion that Katy and Bo have established with Sit Stay Play!
Laura is a Tulsa native and grew up around dogs, cats, frogs, and fish. As far back as she can remember her family and extended family have always owned multiples dogs, which were always considered to be part of the family. She loves to spoil her dogs with long walks, car rides, treats, or just some good old-fashioned attention. Laura’s first pet was a Goldfish named Freddie, now she is the proud owner of Max, an Australian Shepherd mix, who she rescued a few years ago. When Laura is not spending time with Max, she is training for Spartan Races, playing soccer, reading, cooking/baking, or hanging out with family and friends.
Jes adores animals and nature! She has cared for pets and barnyard animals all over the world from Paris to Vancouver Island to Austin to our lovely Tulsa. Throughout her life, she has loved and cared for cats, dogs, birds, chickens, turtles, hamsters, horses, goats, and even a pet caterpillar named Kitty. She lives in a tiny home with her black kitty, Zero, and they are frequently caught playing piano and gardening together. Jes is a songwriter/singer/musician so you may also find her singing to your babies at times. In addition to her deep love of pets, traveling, gardening, and music, she is a graduate of Trinity School of Natural Health and is fascinated by the world of holistic nutrition for humans, as well as animals. If you have any questions about health concerns your pet may have, be sure to ask, and she may just have a natural cure idea up her sleeve.

Bridget loves all animals, but most of all she loves taking care of animals! She was born and raised in Oklahoma, some country living and some city living, but she always had a pet under her arm! She has always brought home animals to save since she was a young child. She has experience with horses, chickens, ducks and of course dogs and cats, as well as anything small enough to live in your house! She has been fortunate enough to work as a vet assistant and has also been certified as a dog trainer. She enjoys jogging, reading and always spending time with her 12 yr old son. They now have a 14 year old diabetic cat named Bob, who rules the house! They have had him since he was 5 weeks old and Bob was diagnosed with diabetes at only 7 years old. She hopes that when she retires she can have an animal sanctuary of her own to continue helping lost pets have a forever home with love!
Gabrielle has been an animal lover as far back as she can remember. She grew up with many pets from tarantulas and lizards to birds and dogs. She can’t think of an animal she hasn’t had a chance to meet. When she grew up, she knew she would be a pet mom and is now a dog mom to 5 and cat mom to 1. She loves having so many warm paws to hold and sweet faces to give treats to. Gabrielle is a Special Education teacher during the week. She loves her kids and enjoys getting them around animals and into nature as much as she can. In her spare time she is hanging out with her pack or spending time outdoors hiking or riding bikes with her family.
Christian is from Tulsa and loves animals, so much so that he has 6 animals of his own; 5 dogs and a cat. He never imagined having so many pets under one roof, but he enjoys the fun that comes with it. He has been pet sitting for almost 10 years and loves knowing that the animals he stays with are being taken care of as if they are his own. He has never met a pet that hasn’t loved him and vice versa. Christian enjoys spending time with his wife and his dogs and cat at home, reading comic books, and cooking, but his specialty is homemade dog treats!
