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.Jul 25, 2017Verified
John Duke of Animal House came through for us in a big way, providing full pet service in a big house full of complicated cats for over a week. It was great to be able to check in regularly from overseas and get detailed updates. We will call on Animal House again!Mar 4, 2015
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.Jun 9, 2020VerifiedAnimal House Pet Sitting's reply
Thank you, Roger. It was pleasure looking after them.
All of the above. John is very attentive to your pets needs and keeps you updated via messaging to let you know your pets are doing fine while you are away.May 8, 2019VerifiedAnimal House Pet Sitting's reply
- 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.
