Go Big Red!

Anyone can say they love animals because they have been around them all their lives.

What makes me different? I take my business seriously. It is my FULL-TIME career 24/7. It is my livelihood and my passion. My business is not part-time or a hobby to make a little cash or fill up my weekends.

I work full time for my clients and their pets. We work together to make a schedule that works for their needs to give the proper care. I have worked hard building my professional company the correct way. I have legally created my Limited Liability Company (LLC) and have completed the PetTech certifications of Pet CPR, First Aid & Care.

I enjoy my career greatly and it gives me a sense of pride when I know every animal under my care is spoiled and happy. When I am greeted with wagging tails, friendly meows, and barks of excitement it proves to me I am doing what I love. It’s important to build a relationship with my clients. If you don’t have excellent customer service skills and empathy for the clients’ needs than you shouldn’t be a pet sitter. I have all these qualities and it shows with my work ethic, professionalism, repeat business and the referrals that I happily receive. Anyone can be a pet sitter but I build the relationships by being reliable, trustworthy and dedicated to their pets.

I also administer Background checks on all my new staff. I am always happy to share References of the amazing families that allow me to come into their homes and care for their pets.

We Strive to offer dependable, caring and quality pet care services that fits every person and every budget.​
