Walkies Pet Sitting

Sue was great to work with and immediately put our minds at ease from the first phone call. We are currently vacationing in the Bradenton area for the month of January and required a dog sitter during a day trip to Miami. Sue responded to our request on Thumbtack and the rest is history. She took great care of our Miniature Schnauzer while we were away for the day. He was walked, fed and given lots of love and attention. The photos and texts with updates was reassuring and a real bonus. We would highly recommend Sue and would definitely reach out to her again if we need a dog sitter in the future.Jan 21, 2018

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?An initial free of charge meet and greet to discuss the owners specific requirements and to meet the pets that would be under my charge. It is essential that there is a mutual trust and respect built up during the initial meeting. Full details need to be taken for care together with feeding, routines, Vet Information as well as detailed hurricane plan as we live in Florida.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I belong to Pet Sitters international an organization that keeps us abreast of changes of thinking. They offer an ongoing continuing education program.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I am as always being asked if I would take care of my friends pets so I looked into insurance and bonding and decided since I have such empathy with animals that this would be a great thing to do.
