My goal is to provide top quality pet care to every one of my clients. I have built this business to be a professional service with an excellent reputation for providing custom in your home pet care. I offer full service pet sitting including overnight care, dog walking, daily visits and some 24 hour care as well! Staying at home while you are away creates a bit of normalcy for your pets in a time that could otherwise be chaotic and possibly even traumatic for them.
I want you and your pets to be Carefree Companions while you're away!
For as long as I can remember, when someone would ask me what I wanted to do when I grew up the answer was always "something with animals," although I never knew exactly what.
I moved to Vista in 2002 and started working a job at a small natural pet food and treat company called Tigertail Foods. I quickly worked my way up to Production Manager and continued to work there until early 2017 when I decided to focus my attentions fully on my pet sitting. My very first pet sitting client is a customer of Tigertail Foods. I had always done pet sitting for friends and neighbors, but after sitting for her I realized that I could do it as a career and have always enjoyed the experience. From there I found the Pet Sitting University - a 2 day course that helped new pet sitters get their professional business up and running.
After completing the Pet Sitting University course I officially started my business in 2004. I carry liability insurance, bonding and a city licence. I have also been through the PetTech pet saver course and had previously been certified in pet First Aid by the Red Cross and continue to take refresher courses. Most recently I completed the Pet 1st Aid 4 U course taught by Arden Moore - I highly recommend her course to ANYONE who shares their life with pets. Her classes are fun and informative and she is the only course to have a live dog and cat to practice basic 1st Aid techniques on.
Pets have been a part of my life since the day I came home, and I can't see that ever changing. My family has always had pets and I have learned so much from them. Among my first were chickens, cats, rabbits, hamsters, fish, and the list goes on! Eventually my mother gave in and we got a dog. He was a 4 year old Papillon named Rusty. He made the biggest impact on me because we essentially grew up together. We were lucky enough to have him for 12 years. He passed away on Febuary 26th 2006 at 16. He is pictured above at age 15. With Rusty is now Toby my 16 year old Lab mix who passed August of 2018.
Among my current menagerie are;
Myla our 13 year old Smooth Coated Collie,
Kado our 9 year old Healer mix
Our barn cat Foxy
A laying hen and a rooster we call Richard
