Denise is the best I've met at managing dogs with challenging and anxious temperaments. She's clearly a deeply authentic dog lover. I bet her own animal companions eat better than I do.Apr 30, 2015
My favorite part of Denise's pet care is the personalized message that she leaves behind after each walk. I can tell that she's really paying attention to what's happening on the walk and the well-being of my little pup!Apr 30, 2015
Just cleaned my home and did such a great job. She was very easy to communicate and schedule with and arrived right on time. The work was done well and so respectfully. She is a real joy to work with, and I even handed off a key so she can take care of my critters when I travel. I will be using Sparklepup again!Dec 24, 2019Verified
Thank you for the daily updates of my cat. This was my first time using a pet sitter, and I am very pleased with how my cat was treated.Sep 12, 2016Verified
Denise was great! She was locked out of the apartment on the first day but kept waiting until she was able to get in and take care of my kitty! She did daily updates on her visit and I was sure my cat was in good hands.Oct 3, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our pricing changes depending on the type of service you request and the location of the job, and we often offer special discounts when services are packaged together.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The first step in setting up any kind of service is a detailed discussion of your needs. This can be done via email, phone, or in person, depending on what works best for you. Once we know exactly what you need we can tell you exactly what we can provide and what the costs of different services are. We can set budgets and time expectations and firm up scheduling. Then we're ready to go!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Denise's work in the pet industry - including owning her own dog walking and pet sitting business as well as working in a doggie daycare - have given her over a decade of experience caring for animals. As for cleaning, working at high end vacation resorts has instilled an attention to detail above and beyond what you might expect from a small, local business.
