Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I am mature and dependable. I go out of my way to make things easy for you. I offer the following services: If you are away overnight, I can pet sit in one of two ways: 1) I can stay overnight and during the day in your home, or 2) I can visit your home 2 or 3 times a day to feed your pet and let them out to exercise. (I do not board dogs in my home.) I especially enjoy working with older dogs and dogs with special needs. I have experience giving insulin shots and other medication. I have the time, energy, patience, and love to give to your sweeties. I love animals and they love me. I love to pet and cuddle them, go for walks, and play with them. I feel good when I help a fur baby's parent. I know what it is like to need a pet sitter and not know where to turn. I discovered the hard way that you can't rely on friends to care for your pet.

Pet Sitting

Brenda did an excellent job pet sitting for my mini Aussie and pet bird. Very professional and responsible. I would recommend her to others looking for a pet sitter.

Pet Sitting

Brenda was great to work with for my 3 cats. She sent pictures and made sure they were well cared for and loved while I was gone. I have her set up for another vacation. Thank you Brenda.

    A typical dog walk or pet visit lasts around 30 minutes and costs $20. My typical fee for an overnight stay in your home is $60. There is an additional $5 fee for each additional dog. There is an additional fee for more than 4 cats. When I do overnight stays in your home I stay at your house during the day and night. My fee for a dog to stay overnight in my home is $30 for the first dog and an additional $10 fee for a second dog. There is a limit of 2 dogs. I do not board cats in my home.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I schedule a Meet and Greet to meet the pet and discuss expectations with the parents.

    I love dogs. I volunteered with a rescue organization caring for foster dogs.
