I was not present when Mr. Wagmaster took care of my cat, but I can say that when I returned I was very pleased with how he left "everything", meaning cleanliness in particular. I would hire him again without hesitation.Oct 1, 2018Verified

Bill created an instant rapport with both my pup and my family. Anyone who knows me will tell you that if I trust you to take care of my dog; I trust you with my best friend. I trust Bill. He's very attentive and genuinely caring to Welly and responsive and flexible me.Jun 6, 2015Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically, I come to their home to discuss needs and meet the pets in order to see if it's a good fit for both our clients peace of mind and for us to become familiar with their pets. This is a free consultation and I bring necessary forms and contracts regarding liabilities and we discuss their pets needs and schedules and share stories about our existing clients. Trust is a big issue for both new client and Wagmaster being a good fit that they feel comfortable allowing us in their homes with their fur-babies.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I just finished a full day course in Dog and Cat CPR to prepare in case of any emergencies. As a member of NAPPS I receive current news and industry updates daily from other professional pet sitters across the country.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have been a pet owner/caregiver for the past 55 years. There hasnt been a moment in my life when I didnt have a dog and they have all been my best friends. I mostly had dogs but my interest in caring for pets extended into turtles, fish, gerbals, mice, and chameleons. Over the course of my life I have owned and cared for Beagles, Dachshunds, Bassett Hounds, Irish Setters, Old English Sheepdogs, Dobermans, Cocker Spaniels, and Irish Wolfhounds. My current pets include a beautiful Boston Terrier rescue dog, Maizy, and a Havanese named Castro. After owning and operating a successful graphic design/advertising studio for the last 35 years, I decided to venture into doing the thing I have always loved the most playing and walking with dogs and caring for pets. I can promise my clients that I will always treat their pet as if they were part of my family and do everything in my control to ensure that you will be happy with the service. I know how hard it is to leave them with someone new and the anxiety it can cause.
