There are many boarding facilities, why shouldn't I use one of them? Many pets do not respond well to being left alone in a cage or around several other barking dogs. An in-home pet sitter can keep your pet in their routine, keeping their stress level low and keeping them from being destructive. Kennels can also quickly spread disease such as kennel cough.
My neighbor's son is really cheap, and I already know him. Why pay more for a professional? Despite the best intentions, a child or teenager may get busy and forget to let them out or not notice something is wrong when they are in a hurry to get them fed and out. They may also not be available when there is an emergency with your pet or home. Check out a pet sitter carefully, don't go by price alone. They should have references available, be insured and be available for emergencies 24 hours a day and have a back up sitter in place.
How do we get to meet you first? We will always do a free consultation before you make a reservation. We want to make sure your pets will be comfortable with us in their home and you have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. Call or email us anytime to schedule.
How do I know who my pet sitter will be? There are only the two of us, Ashley and Stacy, the owners. We take great pride in caring for your pets while you're away. We formed this business out of a need for someone trustworthy to care for our own pets, and we always found ourselves calling each other. Our natural partnership formed because we wanted the best care for our own pets. Because of our great clients, we are growing! As we add more pet sitters, you will always have the option of meeting them before they care for your pets.
What if there is an emergency with my pet? We are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to ensure your pet is safe during our visits. If an emergency does arise, we are prepared with the pet's medical history and vet contacts. We will get detailed information from you before you leave on how you want to handle an emergency and what clinic you would like them taken to. We will not hesitate to call you if we think something may be wrong based on the history you give us or if there is an obvious cause. We will keep you updated during the whole process.
I have a high energy or special needs pet, how can you help me? We offer daily walks for high energy dogs. No guilt, we know everyone takes on more than they mean to at times! Especially during the holiday season. Or maybe you just work long days. We can help spoil your furry family members when you're not able. We can help with taking pets to routine vet visits, checking in on senior pets and administering medicine at specific times of day.
How do I know things went well? We will leave you a pet report card to let you know of any minor issues. We will always call with any emergency. We want your pets to enjoy our visits as much as we do! If they didn't seem to do well with us, we want the best for them so we may have other recommendations for the next time you are out of town.
