About this pro

I have been involved in rescue for a majority of my life so I work with all sorts of animals and I work with animals that have behavioral issues, special needs and need medication administration.

I have worked on a farm growing up so I can do farm work as well! 

I used to be a school teacher but animals were always my passion so in order to continue to be involved in the rescue world, I do this to pay the bills and guess what? I love what I do!

I offer pet sitting in your home or mine, consecutive dog walking, pet visits, basic grooming (baths, nail trim).

my facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/fivestarpetservices/?ref=settings

I have excellent references if you need them :) I treat your babies as if they were mine, they will be in great hands!

I charge $10 for a 15 min visit; $15 for a 30 min visit and so forth. I charge $30 a day for boarding and $50 a night for overnight sitting at your home. I provide notes, pictures and videos.  I work 7 days a week and am always on call. I also work holidays :)

Just being around and interacting with animals. Since I can't adopt every animal in the world I can enjoy yours and get paid for it! ha!

How did you get started in this business?

I've been in dog rescue since I was in my early 20's. I was a school teacher and very unahppy so I decided to do something that pays the bills and that I actually enjoy hence starting my own business!

What types of customers have you worked with?

Dogs, Cats, Reptiles, Birds, Farm animals and their humans :)

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

That's a hard one, I fall in love with my clients daily (animal clients ha) so I'm fond of all my time spent with them.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Avoid Rover and Wags and other websites related to dog sitting businesses as they will hire ANYONE, go with someone who's done this for a long time (like me) and is actually passionate with what they do and EXPERIENCED.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Anything to ease their minds about the safety of their pets and home.
