We met Carol for our future pet sitting needs. We were very impressed, and feel relieved to have found someone we can trust to care for our 2 cats while we are away.Jul 7, 2017Verified
Hello everyone, For anyone looking for a kind and caring HUGE animal LOVER to sit for your pet, you found her!! I'd recommend Carol M. any day of the week. She is very good with animals & since then myself and DTOUR (my dog) have a new friend :) So THUMBTACK her # and give her a holler, You'll be happy u did!Jun 5, 2016
Carol is an excellent pet sitter. She cares for my cat as if he was her own. She pays attention to detail in my cats moods, manners, eating habits and health. I get calls and messages if something comes up & a full report after I have returned home from my trips. My cat loves her!Jul 26, 2016
Carol was very patient, kind and had a great knowledge of her Frebch.She knew how to teach each individual student, and their needs. Carol was always professional, and made class fun. I was very fortunate to have her as my tutor, and friend. I would highly recommend her as my French teacher.Apr 19, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $35/visit to take care of one pet in other people's homes located within 30 miles of my home in Leola, PA, and $30/visit if the pet's home is within 10 miles. That price includes gas costs. I charge $5 more for every additional pet to be cared for during those visits, but I waive that extra charge for pet owners who want multiple visits, and/or will be absent more than two days.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I believe that the new customer should meet me before deciding whether I should be his/her pet sitter. The Internet is a wonderful tool, but can't replace face-to-face meetings for sensing whether a person can be entrusted with a pet. I also believe that the animal to be cared for (as well as the owner) should be given a chance to "approve/disapprove" of the pet sitter before any job begins. After all, that pet will be left alone in the sitter's care.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I don't think pet sitters need a PhD to pet sit, but it helps to have had a deep love of animals, and a long pet sitting experience, as I have had.
