Hiring Peterson Pet Care was the best travel decision I have ever made. Barbara is a total professional, as well as a caring person with a real interest in dogs. She moved into my house for a week and became the surrogate pet mom. When I got home after a week away, I could not believe how calm, content, and peaceful my dogs were! It was obvious that she had really spent time with them and given them enough attention so that they were not bouncing off the walls when I walked in. I would hire Barbara again without hesitation. If you care about your dogs' well-being and happiness, this is the pet sitter to choose.

Details: Dog • 3 pets • Giving food and water • Collect mail • Overnight visit (10-12 hours) • Two times a day • The pet sitter travels to me

The best pet sitter I’ve ever had!! She showed up on time, connected with my three rescue dogs that I just love to death. She made special treats for them and went above and beyond making sure that they were cared for and loved. Susan Patterson

Barbara has taken care of my three dogs going on ten years now. I can always depend on her and not have to worry about anything when I’m away from home. She takes a personal interest in my dogs health and welfare.

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

    I charge $55.00 for overnight stays. Staying at the customers house makes it so much easier on the pet. This way the pet is at home and comfortable. I give medicine if needed, water plants, take in and out garbage. Also watch the clients home while they are away.

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

    I have been pet sitting for 15 years. I love animals - I have 2 cats myself. I really love to pet sit so I can be with all of my doggie friends.

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    I am very loyal, trustworthy, on time and will take excellent care of their pets just like they were my own.
