Let me know when you need a house-pet sitter and we can schedule a quick call or chat to discuss your specific needs! The cost is $95 a night, plus $15 for each additional pet. This includes my presence from about 7 at night to 7 in the morning (though these times can be tailored to your needs), and the evening and morning feeding, walking and specific routines we decide on. Midday walks and visits are charged at the regular price.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We can talk on the phone. If you want to proceed, we set up a no-cost meet-and-greet with you and your dog or cat and owners. It's a chance to ask questions and get to know one another. If it's a good fit, then we can make arrangements for the pet sitting or dog walking, including times, payment and instructions.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a lifelong dog owner. Through friends and family, I've been around cats all my life. I have been doing pet sitting and dog walking as a business for 3 years. I am insured through Pet Sitters Associates and I'm certified in pet CPR and first aid.
