Summer isn't over yet and there's still plenty of time for those family vacations! But it can sometimes be difficult to plan a vacation when you have a beloved pet. I provide dog walking and pet sitting services to residents of the Columbia area. Using me allows your family dog or cat to stay in the comfort and security of their own environment, without exposure to disease or parasites often associated with boarding or kenneling. It is important for your pets to remain without stress and anxiety as some pets feel abandoned when left alone throughout the night or for extended periods of time. I can also help you reduce the worry or guilt associated with business trips, long work hours, illness, emergencies, vacations, or any last minute get-away.
I recognize the importance your pet's role in your life as well as the importance of security while you are away. I take the invaluable responsibility of caring for two of the most important concerns of your life: your pets and your home. I am a certified veterinary technician and have worked in two different veterinary practices. I am also the proud owner of two dogs, who are no less than complete members of the family. References from previous clients are available upon request. I can provide valuable services for your home such as turning lights on/off at night and checking security systems to make it less obvious that your house is vacant if you plan to be gone overnight. I can also provide important, one-on-one interaction with your pet at less than the cost of a kennel.
I have a checklist that I routinely follow that can include such things as: Bringing in the newspaper/mail Giving each pet the proper amount of food and clean, fresh water Giving treats (if they are allowed) Picking up any “accidents” or messes that may occur Watering plants Making sure pets are in their proper place Administering medication if needed
And I will always leave you notes and stay in contact with you as much as you'd like on the status of your pet! :)
For a safe and friendly way to leave your pet alone, please contact me at any time!
