About this sitter

We are big animal lovers who love to travel and meet new people and their fur families. Our pets have been our children, so spending time getting to know your four legged kids really makes us happy! We are also homeowners who can manage most basic maintenance requirements. David and I recently retired and downsized from a 5 acre hobby farm where we lived for 15 years. While we were there, we fostered many dog & cats, puppies and kittens and rehabbed a robin, a possum, several raccoons and squirrels , raised chickens, fruit trees, grapevines, blueberry bushes and tons of vegetables. I love to garden and am a heirloom enthusiast as well as an organic gardener and former bee keeper. My husband and I are in our early 60’s and were both professional business owners. He, as a massage therapist and myself as a pet groomer. I started doing pet sitting after selling my grooming salon and fell in love with it. We love to travel, garden, cook together, taking long walks and currently enjoy living our best life! We live by the golden rule and treat others as we would want to be treated. That includes your home and wonderful family.

Why they want to house sit

I love the feeling of still being of service after retirement. I used to travel frequently and had an older cocker spaniel at the time. I was fortunate enough to find a professional pet sitter that I could trust. I never worried when I had to leave, knowing that she was dependable, honest and would treat my Coco like her own. Although my beloved girl is gone, and we have since had another great dog Tipper, Linda and I have become, and still are, best friends. Giving others that feeling of comfort to travel and enjoy time away is fulfilling to me. I also have a special interest in genealogy so having the time and freedom to visit places my ancestors have lived is especially thrilling to me.

Their experience

From veterinary assistant, pet groomer, pet sitter, wildlife rehabber, and foster care mom for our humane society, I have worn many hats in the animal care world. With 25 years of experience, you can be assured that the care and happiness of your fur, feathered and finned family will be my top priority while they are in my care. You can relax and enjoy time away.

What can they bring to the assignment

We love to travel and meet new pets and their people. My personal experience has taught me that your fur family is more relaxed, healthy and happy when they are at home in their own environment. Often a kennel or boarding facility can be very stressful to pets that are not used to being left in an unfamiliar place. I can give shots or medications if needed ( for diabetic pets) special diets, or provide that extra TLC, for older pets. I believe good communication is key and am happy to follow your routines and instructions to insure that your fur kids are completely stress free while you’re away.
