    It was at times hard to connect with Judy’s helping hands for coordinating and status.

    Judy was really accommodating when we were in need of a pet sitter. My high energy dog was exhausted from playing all weekend with her pup, it was wonderful! After a long weekend at a wedding, all of us got to come home and relax including the dogs! I would recommend Judy for her service.

About this pro

We are a small family owned and operated business. I am a true animal lover and always have been. I understand what it’s like to have to go to work or leave town and leave your pets behind. You constantly miss them and worry about how they’re doing. Our goal at Judy's Hands for Helping-Pet Care Services is to give you peace of mind knowing that your pet is being well cared for and looked after by a professional, reliable, experienced and loving pet sitter. My promise to you is to provide the love and attention that your pet deserves while in our care. We can provide you with a daily text to your phone with updates or leave you daily notes as to how your pet is doing while you are away. What I love most about what I do is that I get to take care of all different breeds of dogs and cats. I am a huge animal lover and every time I see a dog or a cat I want them! Now I have them, if only for a while, but like any grandma with her grandkids, I get to love them, spoil them and than give them back to mom and dad.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      I charge per visit not by the hour. My rates start at $20 per visit,for 3 animals after that there is a $5.00 fee per animal. That also includes taking care of the owners home by bringing both the mail and the newspaper, securing doors and leaving various lights on so people assume that the owner is home.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I will set up an initial Free consultation to meet both the pet owner and the pet. I like to get to know the animals before I just show up and they have no idea who I am. I always ask the owner for vet information in the event of an emergency and any special instructions regarding the care of their pet. I require Client forms telling me about both the pet and the pet parent including phone numbers. I also have them sign a key release form.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I have been certified to administer medications if that would be required. I am a member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS). I am always doing continuing education through their site.
