About this pro
We have been in business for 20 years. We get referrals from clients and other pet professionals on a regular basis. We are diversified in that we do pet sitting, dog training and people training of CPR and pet care. All of our independent contractors are trained in dog and cat CPR and first aid. I like the variety of pets that I get to care for. I like the exercise that I get walking dogs. I love all the happy purrs from cats, and licks from dogs. I like learning new things about pets and knowing that the pets parents trust me and don't worry while they are gone.

Q & A
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We talk with the customer over the phone to make sure that we cover the area that they live in and that we are a good match for their needs. We then have a meet and greet (no charge) where we meet them and their pet(s) and they us. We do a presentation explaining what are services are and the costs. No surprises!
- What types of customers have you worked with?Our most common jobs are mid-day walks while our clients are at work. The next common is taking care of the pets and their home while they are gone on a trip. All of our customers are enjoyable and love their pets.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?To make sure that the pet sitter is a professional and that they carry insurance that covers that home and pets. Also that they are bonded if they have independent contractors working for them. Make sure that they have memberships to a least one pet sitting group that provides educational avenues so that the pet sitter is up to date on pet information.
