We recently moved to High Point. We have no friends or family close. So when my father in law got unexpectedly ill we had to schedule a flight to Minnesota. We never leave our dogs with anyone, they are truly our babies. We have two long hair chihuahuas and they are very spoiled and very nervous of new people, so we were freaking out with the idea of leaving them with just anyone. I found Katie by doing a Google search under "pet sitter" and I believe she was sent from heaven because she was exactly what we needed. After she came for an interview I knew she was the one. We were gone for 7 days and she came in twice a day to play, feed and let our babies out. She also took pictures of them and texted us with updates. She even picked up our mail!!! I just can't say enough about Katie! We highly recommend her services!!! Ps. Picture from one of Katie's texts below.Feb 9, 2017Verified
Katie did a great job. I have used her twice in two weeks. I would strongly recommend her for any pet care needs. I have a young dog, an old dog who requires medication, and 5 cats. She handled all of this like a champ!Nov 8, 2016Verified
Katie recently babysat my two fur girls for a weekend, for the first time. This was my first experience leaving my girls with anyone outside our extended family; so it was very important for them to feel safe and secure with Katie. We began our relationship with a visit to our home, where Katie would be providing care to Jez and Max. Jez (Jezebel; my dog) not only felt comfortable with Katie, but loved her at first sight; in fact would not leave her side during Katie's visit. I was beyond relieved as Jez (a rescue dog with a hard beginning) is a high-strung, nervous girl. Max (Maxine, my cat) was her usual disdainful self but also comfortable in Katie's presence. During our first meeting, Katie and I determined her visitation schedule and what each girl's needs would be during each visit - including the length of the visit, to ensure their social and security needs were met. Katie offered to text me each time she arrived for and departed from each visit, including sending photos of the girls. She then followed up with me after our meeting, as well as a few days before our scheduled weekend; to ensure she had all required information about the girls as well as to request additional information in case other needs manifested themselves. During my time away, Katie exceeded my expectations specific to texting me with reports of each of her visits and how the girls were doing - and providing photographic evidence! When I returned, Jez and Max were very relaxed and happy aside from being excited that I was home. If you are looking for a conscientious, caring, committed, organized, professional pet sitter, please consider Katie. I couldn't be happier with her services; especially her knowledge and understanding of animals and needs. She was lovely with my girls, which I appreciate more than words can express as they are so precious to me. Please let me know if I can provide additional information about Katie's abilities and her compassion and caring. I will be happy to sing her praises! Sincerely, Ruth OwensAug 22, 2016Verified
Katie is a very friendly and outgoing person! She is very good with animals and my dog really likes her a lot! I am very happy with her services so far!May 6, 2017
We hired Katie to go off for a long weekend. We had a long interview beforehand. My animals who are usually shy came right up to her without hesitation. She is responsible, knowledgeable and loved my babies! She came on time every day and gave great care, even giving medicines and she kept all pet areas very clean. We have already booked her for our trips for the rest of the year! Would definitely recommend without hesitation, she is awesome!!May 6, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $15.00-20.00 per visit to the home of the animal for which I am caring for.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After reviewing the job and making sure its a good fit for everyone. The initial first interview for me to meet the client & their pets. A good first impression is very important to me. I want to make sure my client & their pets are comfortable with me.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have worked for several pet stores to gain much needed experience. Petland and Petco for examples. I have references from these pet stores upon request and from past employers. I also have had just about every pet possible. I also have cared for sick animals to dispense medicine and insulin. I also am a licensed and bonded pet sitter.
