    After the meet n greet it was a no brainer. Wendy was awesome with my 100 lb. Dane/Pit mix. She walked him daily, played ball with him, and stayed overnight. Wendy sent me daily updates and pictures and even vacuumed before I returned from a long weekend. I would recommend Wendy from WYNTPC to take care of your large breed dog!

    Thank you for the wonderful review, Larry! I know Wendy loved caring for Frankie! I'm so glad that we were able to provide the care you needed! Tracy

    I knew my shy kitty was in good, experienced hands. Although she had never been left for five days before, she bounced back quickly. Everything was neat and tidy, which I really appreciated.

    Aww! Thank you Betsy! Katie is a kitty that needs extra reassurances due to her long ago past.. I always respect super shy cats and their needs for me to go super slow in their environment. I know in time, she will show less fear with strangers. Tracy

About this pro

I have worked in the veterinary field from 1999 - 2014 as a Veterinary Technician Assistant and as an Administrator. I have worked in Feline Only Veterinary practices for 7 of those years and am adept at handling, caring for and administering medications for many small mammals. My specialty is feline care and small "pocket pets" including hamsters, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits and hedgehogs. I have over 34 years experience and skills working with dogs; both big and small. Due to health issues of my own, I care for the smaller, less gregarious dogs. Large and excitable dogs are handled by back up Independent Contractors. I love bonding with both my clients and their pets. We become like family. I treat your pets as I do my own. I can "read" pets very well and try to interact with them on their individual level of comfort. I respect your home and your pets while I am contracted for services. It pleases me to have happy clients and pets!

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My pricing is based on length of the visit for the pet(s) and the distance from my home location in Tigard. I have 20 minute visits, 30 minute visits and overnight visits. (12 or 16 hours) Depending on where a client lives; there are "Zone Fees" as well. I currently service Tigard, Tualatin, Lake Oswego and parts of SW Portland and parts of Beaverton.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      My typical process for working with a new client is for them to decide what type of visit (20 minutes, 30 minutes or overnight) that their pet needs and to find out where they live. We will generally speak by phone to go over what their specific needs are for their pet(s), then set up a 15-30 minute Meet n Greet session at their home to meet the client, the pet(s) and get the 'lay of the land' in their home. It is at the Meet n Greet session where I receive a key to the home, a filled out contract for services and payment for the visits.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      While working in veterinary medicine for the past 15 years as an administrator and an assistant technician, I took about 15 hours of Continuing Education courses relating to pets, clients and disease processes. These were not required for my position and they were voluntary. I was very interested in hospice care and end of life care for ailing pets.
    Coverage Area for When You're Not There Pet Care is about 7+ miles of Portland, OR.
