In February 2011 my husband and I adopted a dog we named Paco at the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe. Adopting Paco changed our lives and opened my mind to the possibility of starting a pet sitting business; primarily focusing on dog walking services.
By the summer of 2013, after two years of hard work getting the business started, I felt like I had turned a corner. I had developed a network of customers and had learned a lot about running a pet sitting business. I had some great experiences with my four legged clients and found that I really loved what I was doing. I had compassion for the dogs and other animals I worked with and realized that this was a calling for me.
I understand from my relationship with and love for Paco that most people view their pets as a member of their family. There is a huge degree of trust involved in having someone take care of your pet. When you trust me to care for your pet, I promise to be compassionate, responsive, and dependable.
I look forward to meeting you and your pet!
Why Choose Me?
There are a lot of options out there, so why choose me? Three words sum it up: Compassionate, Responsive, and Dependable!
I really love dogs and cats and I love spending time with them. In fact, if you don’t properly care for your pet, I can’t work for you because it breaks my heart. For this reason I will not provide service if you:
- Think you can leave town and only have someone visit your dog once or twice a day (cats can handle it, for dogs it is inhumane!)
- Leave your dog outside unattended for long periods of time
- Leave your dog in a crate or confined space, like a patio, bathroom, or garage for extended periods of time during your absences (crate training for puppies is fine, I am talking about adult dogs here)
- Don’t provide proper medical care for your dog
If you love your pet and want the highest level of care and the most conscientious and compassionate person to care for them, you’ve come to the right place! I am happy to provide references you can speak with directly that will confirm this.
I am very responsive and accessible. Call me. I will either answer directly or I will call you back with 15 minutes; 90% of the time within 5 minutes. Text me... I will respond within minutes. As part of my service I send you pictures of and updates on your pet unless you ask me not to.
Why is this important? I treat my dog and your pet like a family member. If you hired someone to look after your kids and you called them and they didn’t answer the phone or even respond promptly, would you be concerned? I look at it the same way with pet sitters; even more so than other types of service businesses.
I haven’t missed a scheduled pet sitting appointment since I started this business in 2011. You can count on me to do what I say I will do and to communicate with you promptly if I have to change my schedule for any reason. Again, I have references you can speak with directly who can vouch for this.
LONG TERM RELATIONSHIP: TRUST
Finally, on this topic of “why choose me?”, there is the issue of trust. When you choose a pet sitter you are starting an important relationship and trusting that person with the care of a beloved family member. You are usually giving that person access to your home (if you don’t trust them enough to do that you shouldn’t trust them with your pet!). You want someone that you can trust completely, who is conscientious, responsible, compassionate, responsive, and dependable. That person is me!
