FAQ

  • Why should a pet owner use a “Pet Sitter”?

Keeping pets in their own home helps to decrease the anxiety they go through when you are away. Pet Sitters are a great alternative to Kennels and Boarding Facilities, as they can give the one-on-one attention, care, reduce the risk of illness/ injury and keep daily routines for your pet.  Additionally, it is great for multiple pet owners home and you get the bonus of someone watching over your home while you are away.

  • Are you the primary sitter?

Yes, but I do have a team of high qualified and trusted assistance, as well. They are bonded and insured under me and will provivde the the best care for your pet.  I will assign myself and one assistance to your family, incase I am not available. My assitance will come with me on our "Meet and Greet" or at a later time.

Yes, we will not schedule services until a “Meet and Greet” is performed.
