I have finally found a pet care provider that I trust and can count on. Joyce is our primary pet sitter and always leaves a note detailing her visit with my pups. I appreciate that so much. They show up when they are supposed to, which was a problem I have had with other services and Joe has assured me that he can get here if we need him in an emergency too. I am more than grateful to Joe and his very caring staff. They are the best. :-)Jan 26, 2015Verified

We are blessed with Giant breed babies and Diane loves all over them.....brings order to their chaos and all with a smile and warm welcoming voice and personality.

My experience with Joe and his team has been absolutely delightful from day one. His expertise, reliability and love for animals, are just some of the reasons why I would recommend his services.Jan 6, 2015
Great care of our pets - wouldn't think of trusting them to anyone else!Jan 6, 2015
Joe has been caring for my pets for several years now. He LOVES my animals. He walks, plays with, and even watches TV with them when he's here! He leaves me a not as to their shenanigans while we're gone, and knows them like they're his own. You will not be disappointed with the great job Joe does with your pets. He's awesome!Jan 5, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our pricing system is very simple. We put ourselves in the place of our customers, as we are consumers too. We don't bother to charge for snow days, late calls, last minute changes, etc. Simple is better.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always had a knack for dealing with animals since a little kid. My adult job was to work as an administrator for the government, which has provided me with a good business sense on how to run a business, responsibly. When retirement loomed, I already have 10 years of experience in volunteering at a Homeless Dog and Cat shelter, and doing pet sitting for another company for 4 years. Starting my own pet sitting business was a no brainer, as a second career. I have not regretted it and haven't looked back!
- What types of customers have you worked with?We will do absolutely anything a client needs done while they are away.
