My passion for animals and helping others inspired me to become a professional pet sitter. I have decades of experience caring for dogs, cats, fish, frogs, and hamsters along the way. (In fact that's a picture of my Golden Retriever, Samson, on the home page and at the bottom of this page.)
I am responsible, considerate, and detail-oriented. Check out my qualifications below.
I can’t wait to meet you and your furry friend! I’m sure we’ll get along swimmingly.
For Your Peace of Mind
PET FIRST-AID TRAINED
A MUST for any companion caregiver!
I am certified through the American Red Cross for Cat and Dog First-Aid, so I can offer critical medical emergency care if your pet suffers from a breathing and cardiac emergency, needs CPR, has a wound and bleeding condition, or is prone to seizures.
I am also working on my Pet First-Aid and CPR training through Pet Sitters International, which will provide an additional 8 hours of training, to further my knowledge and enable me to respond to other pet emergencies with greater skill.
CLEAR BACKGROUND CHECK
Your home and pets are safe with me!
I can provide you with proof of a clear criminal background check, so that you know that your pets and home are safely in my care. A recent report will be shown to you at the time of our "Meet and Greet" consultation.
INSURED AND BONDED
This credential sets me apart.
Being insured and bonded means that I am a professional and take the care of your pets and property seriously. They will be protected while in my care. My pet care insurance covers situations that are unique to pet sitters. If your pets or property are damaged due to an accident, you are covered. Bonding is an additional step, made in order to protect my business. It is another level of protection for you, giving you extra peace of mind.
Pet Sitters International
I am a member of the world's leading educational association devoted to professional pet sitters and dog walkers.
Through this organization I receive resources and training to improve my service and care for your pets. I am always looking to learn how to expand my knowledge base and apply what I've learned in the care of my clients.
No one wants to get sick or be the one to pass on this illness, and through Pet Sitters International, I have learned how to adjust policies and practices, to stay safe during the pandemic.

I can provide you with a list of references, if you desire, so you can speak with some of the clients that use my services.
