Introduction: I love dogs and cats. I offer pet sitting services including overnight care. I try to offer very reasonable prices. I love to spend time with dogs and cats. I have experience administering medication when necessary to both dogs and cats. My goal is to keep your pet in their routine while you are away and to spend time with them and keep them as happy as possible. I enjoy my time with animals.I have also had dogs and cats. I have worked with a lot of small dogs and large dogs. Dogs are much happier when you are away when they have a loving person providing companionship as well as feeding them and excercising them.

Pet Sitting

Heather cared for my dog for more than one month. She visited twice per day without fail. She also watered my houseplants. She brushed my dog & played with her in the backyard. My dog was in excellent shape when I returned. Heather texted me photos of my dog most every day. And we talked by phone when something didn’t seem quite right to Heather. I highly recommend Heather Grimes for dog sitting!

Pet Sitting

Heather is a fantastic pet sitter! She’s trust worthy, reliable and a great communicator. She sends pictures, with updates, on how things are going. We really enjoy working with her!

Pet Sitting

Heather took care of my two kitties while I was away for a week. My cats are used to having people around them all the time and I was nervous about leaving them for a week. But Heather put me at ease. She sent me photos of the kitties everyday (which is very relieving, thank you), followed my feeding instructions, and was clearly very kind to my cats. When I got home my kitties seemed happy and healthy. Also, she kept everything tidy. She is trustworthy, dependable, and after talking to her, you can see she clearly loves animals. Thank you so much Heather! I will be sure to let you know if/when I need cat sitting in the future.
