    Janna's care left our sensitive cat happier and more well adjusted than we are accustomed to seeing after leaving for a few days. We will definitely invite her to care for him and our other pets again!

    Janna watched my 12 yr old dog overnight and kept her company while I was away. She was professional and kind! I had forgotten to take care of something before I left town and Janna was very forgiving and helpful. I will recommend her to all my friends! Thanks Phoenix Pet Care - Janna!

    When Janna cares for our four cats, I know I can have peace of mind while traveling - even when my husband rushes me and I don't have time to ensure everything is ready.

    I trust very few people to be in my house when I am out of town, but I absolutely trust Janna at Phoenix Pet Care. She is reliable, dependable, and she takes great care of my dog whenever I am out of town. My dog is so much happier being at home and being cared for by Janna rather than being stuck in boarding. I have been using Janna's services for years, and I will continue to use her in the future.

    Janna at Phoenix Pet care has been a great dog sitter for me in the past year. She was available when I needed her and provided reliable service. Her multiple options for visits/day or overnight stays made it easy to customize the service for what I needed.

    Janna has been watching our multiple dogs and cats for years, including overnights. She gives medications, waters, takes out the trash, brings in the mail, picks up the poop, besides giving our dogs and cats attention while we're gone.

    Janna has provided excellent care for my cat for years. I appreciate the time she spends with him. I come back to a happy, well adjusted cat.

    Janna did overnites for my recused pit pull mix. I was most impressed with her patience, knowledge and ability to connect and be accepted by him which led to a bond between them and allowed her to come watch him whenever we went out of town. Unfortunately he recently passed away but he truely had a friend in Janna.

    We use Phoenix Pet Care every time we travel. Janna is an excellent, responsible and reliable pet caregiver. I would trust my cats with no one else.

    We have been using Jana at Phoenix Pet Care for about four years now and we (and our pup Hilo) just love her. She came to us on a recommendation and we strongly agree that she is the best! We like having Hilo be at home while we are gone, and she takes care of everything he needs so that we don't worry about our four legged family member while we are away, though we miss him greatly. And Jana has always been so wonderful about sending photo updates! It's a wonderful service and a wonderful person and you won't be disappointed.

    Janna did an excellent job taking care of our cats while we were out of town. One of them is a special needs kitty (sub-Q fluids and meds), and she handled it like a pro.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
my rates are based on how much i'm needed, for the full pricing schedule, see my website: www .phoenixpetcare. net/?page_id=6
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
absolutely. there aren't very many "official" c.e. offerings for pet sitting, but i read & learn whenever i can.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
when i was 15, my brother did yard work for one of my mom's coworkers. when she went out of town, she had him take care of her dogs while she was away. the next time she went out of town, my brother was going up to wild waves water park to go bungee jumping, so i stepped in in his place. it was me ever since. my mom worked for the center for health research of kaiser permanente who had an internal electronic bulletin board (in the mid 90s!). whenever anyone posted about needing a pet sitter, she replied to the post telling them to contact me. and voila! i'm a professional pet sitter.
What types of customers have you worked with?
most common jobs are vacation sits caring for dogs and/or cats.
