Having Bertie sit with my animals for the first time, I was nervous. I have a horse, two goats, two barn cats, and two greyhounds. My nerves were relieved when she texted me the first morning away and said BOTH dogs slept in bed with her! She stayed with them day and night all week!!! Now I was nervous they wouldn't be happy for me to come home! 😃 She even washed the sheets and towels on her last day. And cleaned up the muddy paw prints, and left the place looking and smelling great. I have already asked her to come and pet sit again.Mar 19, 2017VerifiedBlessings From Bertie's reply
Oh thank you.so much for that kind review. I enjoyed my time with all of them (OK not the water carrying so much LOL). Yes you are definitely on my calendar and looking forward to it!
Bertie is a great dog sitter. We have two dogs who adore her and always seem relaxed and calm when we return. She is completely reliable and trustworthy, and takes care of regular house maintenance as required. We intend to continue using her as our first choice dog sitter!Feb 11, 2017VerifiedBlessings From Bertie's reply
Thanks for those kind words. Sorry our schedules don't always match. I miss everyone!
Had Bertie over for the very first time this weekend. She arrived at the house as planned and interacted with the dogs as if they were her own. I felt very comfortable leaving my pups and cats in her care. During my away time from home she kept me up to date with how things were going back home. I highly recommend her to anybody who's looking for a petsitter that u would like to have staying at ur home. Very professional, caring and very reliable.Jul 4, 2016Verified
She was wonderful. My dogs love her and she was on time and knowledgeable. I never worried while we were away knowing she was there.Jan 12, 2015VerifiedBlessings From Bertie's reply
Thank you for your review. So sorry the military took you out of my coverage area!
Bertie is wonderful! I love that for around the same price as other sitters she stays in my home with my pets. Since they are older and very anxious when we leave this an invaluable service. Bertie worked really hard to fit my last minute change of vacation dates into her schedule as well. She’s quick to respond to my texts. Highly recommended!Dec 18, 2019VerifiedBlessings From Bertie's reply
Thank you for this wonderful review! You did give me a little bit of a challenge getting it all worked out. But we did! I so glad you had a great family vacation,
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I don't know that it is complicated, but I figure the price on the number of animals, the amount of care, if they need meds, if they need walked or have a fenced area, if I have to do waste clean up. Things like that determine my rate. My clients feel I have very reasonable rates. When you take into consideration I am there the entire time and your other option is x amount per visit or a kennel.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always do a meet and greet with the client and the animals. I spend time interacting with the pets. I also take notes on what their routine is and any other important information. Usually this meeting takes anywhere from 1/2 hour to an hour.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?To be honest nothing but a love of animals and lots of hands on experience.
