Introduction: I can't speak for others and won't say I am better than they are. I can only say I am very dependable about doing what I am supposed to, I really care for animals and understand them (and don't expect them to be more than they are), and I have always been very honest and ethical in my dealing with people. Owners would not have to worry about whether I did what I said I would do (I would) or if I am stealing from them (I'm not!). I also do go through certain security precautions - I keep keys in a locked key cabinet, but don't keep client personal information out where someone could get to it. I have always been an animal lover. Pet sitting allows me to interact with a lot of different animals. I just really enjoy siting down with and playing with them or just watching them go about their usual antics.

Cat Sitting

It has been a wonderful experience working with Animal House Pet Sitting. John is reliable, available, and does an excellent job with our cats. We love getting text updates with photos on how our cats are doing. We have recommended Animal House Pet Sitting to our friends, and they have had great experiences as well.

Mr. Duke was dependable, made friends with the dogs and sent a message at each visit with photo of the dogs. Plan to use John for future travel.

Cat Sitting

John came out to my home to meet the cats. He let me know what to expect and sent me texts daily with pictures letting me know how things were going. His attention to detail and the manner in which he performed the care of my pets was nothing less then Excellent. I would definitely recommend John Duke to anyone needing pet care services.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The pricing isn't complicated. It is mostly based on the time needed for a particular visit. I start with a base fee of $15 for a 30 minute visit, but with the travel time to and from the owners' house, that really means $15 for 50-60 minutes of time. Shorter visits are less, longer visits are more, depending on what the owners want. There are some extra small fees for giving meds, or for caring for several pets, but those are gone through with the owners before assignments are finalized.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have taken one online course on pet sitting, I have read three books on it, and I am currently going through a manual for pet sitting certification through Pet Sitters International.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    On the one hand, I had been dissatisfied with the work I had been doing. I also found myself in need of more income. Some people who knew of my love of animals and who had used pet sitters before said they thought that kind of work would be a perfect match for me.
