Chalisse has watched our menagerie (2 Portuguese Water Dogs, a Cocker, and 2 cats) twice... so far. She was just what we'd hoped for, and we will be using her again. She makes us feel very confident that when we can't be here, our animals won't miss a beat.May 21, 2011Verified
Chalisse was an amazing pet sitter. Her professionalism and love for animals shined through!! Initially going on our trip, I was anxious to come back to check on our babies, however, once talking to Chalisse via e-mail, she reassured me that the kitties were doing great. Chalisse exceeded my expectations and will definitely be my first choice as a pet sitter!! She is very trustworthy individual that is genuine which is not the norm these days :) Very sweet girl!! You can't go wrong using Chalisse!! Thanks so much Chalisse.Apr 11, 2011Verified

Chalisse is wonderful as a pet/house sitter and dog walker. Our dog LOVES her and she has worked with him on leash training and socialization since we adopted him. We highly recommend her...any pets would be very lucky to have her caring for them!Jul 5, 2015

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always had a passion for animals and enjoy thier company. Animals have a special place in my heart and have graciously offered to help friends with their pet care when needed. After 7 years of school, I decided to turn my hobby into additional income to help offset my student loan payments. It's a win win win situation. You get a vacation with a pet sitter who loves animals and will treat them as her own, I get to spend quality time caring for your pet, and I have some financial support to help with my lofty school loans! There couldn't be a better way to spoil yourself, your pets and me at the same time! Let's meet!
- What types of customers have you worked with?Customers often are looking for care for their cats and dogs while on a vacation. Caring for dogs includes making sure that they get the exercise they need, the love they want, and the nutrition their body requires. While cats are generally more independant, it is important to encourage play time and relaxation time with them as well. Proper nourishment and litter cleaning are imperative to make cats feel as comfortable with their pet sitter as possible! Other animals are sometimes in need of a pet sitter as well.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?Currently I am spoiling 6 cats, 6 kittens and a turtle with my love! It's particularly rewarding to care for kittens and their mothers because the kittens are so innocent and the mothers are doing what they do best: caring for their babies!
