Introduction: I love animals. I believe that a house isn’t a home without a pet. When your dog stays with us they are part of our family- not locked in a cage for hours or kept in a cement kennel. They are loved, played with, and snuggled. The same goes for pets that I sit via “visits” although I don’t get to spend all day with them I am happy to offer them interaction, love, plus food and a bathroom break too. I am currently only taking new walkers Monday Tuesday and Thursday from Pawtucketville to about Vinal Square down etsy 4 to Chelmsford Square area. That is my current route and anything more than 10 minutes off this route would not work with the current schedule. Thank you!

"My dog Winnie liked Shawna the moment they met BUT it's my cat Diablo you have to impress. Diablo took to her right away, also. My dog knows her commands but can be a handful for some people, so I need to ensure who ever is taking care of her knows how to control her in a gentle way. Shawna does a great job and is very dependable." "I would definitely recommend Shawna as a pet sitter." Beth

Shawna took care of my two cats for 4 days while I was out of town. From beginning to end she was professional and accommodating. She took care of feeding them, cleaning the litter boxes and vacuuming each day. She is great with listening and paying attention to the little details that matter, I highly recommend Shawna to care for your pets!

Shawna is very good. She is new to our dog and she seems very comfortable with him. She lets me know when she is walking him which is great.

FAQs

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

    It depends on how far I will need to travel, if I’m coming to your home, how many pets and time it takes overall. Most visits are $30 for one dog who needs to be fed and walked.

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

    I have always loved animals of all kinds, from catching snakes and frogs as a young child, to horseback and mule riding, to my own beloved rescue pup, Kasey. I have helped care for my own pets and those of my family members for many years, from chubby little pugs to big tall mutts the size of a pony. I have spent some time working at a Veterinarian's office, caring for boarded cats and dogs and assisting with animals that come in as patients. In this I have learned how to work with an even greater variety of dogs with different temperaments and needs. Working with animals that you don't know well is where I really learned how to be responsible for another person's companion. Because of my broad experience with animals, especially dogs, I decided that it would be a more fulfilling and happy way to earn a living. I get to make animals happier and healthier, and that makes me happier too.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    If I travel to a client's home: With dogs, I either take them for a walk, or let them outside to play, get some exercise, and do their business. For cats, I clean litter boxes. For dogs and cats, I can: Feed Refill water bowls Trim nails Clean up accidents Administer medications Specific to petsitting: I can also care for your small pets while you are away; I have experience caring for birds, rodents, fish and reptiles. I can even water your plants if you'd like! These are just common needs, but I am open to other things that your pet might need, so feel free to ask! Boarding: We can only take potty trained and ‘fixed’ dogs, no cats. Dogs must be good with kids and cannot be destructive since it is our home, no kennel here! Your dog will be a family pet in our family when they stay with us. We do a “meet & greet” so your dog can meet ours and make sure they get along. Sometimes we do a one night stay to make sure everything goes well before you are traveling. We treat your dog or dogs like part of our family while they are here. We have a fenced in yard perfect for playing.
