About this pro
Just Fur-Babies Pet Sitting and Walking Services brings a unique, one of a kind business concept by providing client's an in home service to pet parents who strive for the best care for their fur-babies when at work, at play or when travel keeps them from their homes. Just Fur-Babies operates seven days a week and is licensed by the state of Kansas, insured, bonded, background screened (through PSI and Sterling) and First Aid & CPR Certified. Also, holds a Certificate in Professional Pet Sitting through Professional Pet Sitters International (PSI). We prefer to be open every day to accommodate our client's schedules. Our business utilizes technology starting with the backend, the sitter and the clients. The software allows customers to schedule their services, pay invoices, view GPS check in/check out and receive automated emails with detailed service notes and photographs. This information can be accessed from a desktop computer or a smart phone. Along with the software technology, all services receive a text showing GPS check in/out and photographs of their Fur-Babies, so the Paw Parents can feel at ease that the service is being completed and they are not cheated on time. Currently, our website is under construction and will be available very soon! We begin with a free initial Meet & Greet and offers a variety services - Private Dog Walks, Pet Visits and a la carte services. The focus of the business is the care and safety of fur-babies by keeping them in their normal routines with the least amount of trauma or stress in their own homes. We are dedicated to the well being of the pets and the peace of mind of their pet parents. Caring for your fur-babies where they love to live. We strive to make a positive impact on our customers and their pets every day. We accomplish this by seeking to understand the specific needs and expectations for each in home visit. We work together as a team (pet owner & sitter) to reduce anxiety and stress for both the pets and the owners by looking after both the pet’s physical and emotional well-being while the owner is away. We operate with integrity and accountability in every aspect of our work. On a personal note, I have utilized sitters for my own Fur-Babies for well over 10 years - all different types and have found it very difficult to receive the quality care I expect. I make sure all of my clients receive the quality of service above their expectations! Some services are not locally owned, corporate driven, hobbiest or have additional add on fees.
Customers rated this pro highly for work quality, professionalism, and responsiveness.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes - No charge for Meet & Greet or multi fur-baby homes. There are a variety of services available dependent upon the client's needs. Sitting ranges from a basic to extending + mornings, walking services range from a quick potty break to a one on one walk and there are additional services available. These are narrowed down during the initial call or Meet & Greet.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I first speak to a new customer on the telephone, we discuss the type of service, duration of service, type of fur-babies and specific information routine or special needs. Then we schedule Meet & Greet at no cost to introduce myself to both the fur-baby or fur-babies and the pet parents. This meeting averages an hour and covers the client information, the business information, documentation and scheduling of services.

I am also First Aid & CPR certified, attended 2016 PSI World Conference in San Diego, CA and studying for PSI's Certification in Professional Pet Sitting Program. My background check is through Sterling, a national screening company. Our business utilizes technology starting with the backend, the sitter and the clients.
