A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
This is it. This is all I want to do. I just want to look after animals and help humans along the way.
My niche is giving the dedicated, loving humans with special needs animal family members a break from the upkeep and compassion fatigue that comes with being a caregiver.
ATTENTION ALL NEW VISITORS:
Speaking of special needs, I've just wrapped up physical therapy, and I'm clear to work, but with some minor restrictions. I'm feeling great, and ready to roll!
While my wonderful pet sit pinch hitter Matt is moving, he is on hiatus. So it's just me, myself, and I for the time being! I'll keep you posted on when he's back to pet sitting and who all else I'm networking with for future plans - and I do mean really SUPER COOL plans! Stay tuned!

SERVICES AND FEES
I'll walk your pet/pets on their regular route, or take them to the dog park, off to the trails, or down the shore, if you like!
Not a dog? Not a problem! Where there's a harness, there's a way. Does your bird, or rat, or pet pig, or goat, etc. love to take a stroll around the neighborhood? I'll get them all geared up, and we'll have grand old time!
Coming soon: Package deals and online payments right here on my website! Stay tuned for more details!
NOTE: All walkies paid in advance. No refunds. If a walk/stop-in gets cancelled, you'll get a walk credit for future services. Win-win!
$50/hour - 1/2 hour minimum
VACATION PET SITTING
I can stop in or stay, depending on the situation and duration of the sit. All dogs and farms are an automatic on-site stay for the psychological wellbeing and health monitoring of the animals, as are all cat or bird sits longer than 7 days. No exceptions.
I'm a one-person operation, and I can do farm sits, so long as the livestock headcount is reasonable. NOTE: As of 11/21/2023, I am taking a break on farm sits, as I am not yet cleared to get back to stall mucking and lifting bales of hay. I'll let you know when I'm cleared to do all that!
Are you a hunter with a pack or in the far north with sled dogs? I understand the difference between companion and working animals, and so long as their treatment is humane and their physical condition is good, I can work with that.
Are you outside of the US in need of a pet/farm sitter? Get in touch! When my schedule allows, I can travel to your location to provide love and support for your animals!
Are you a public figure looking for a zero-drama animal caretaker who knows how to work with respect for your property, discretion, NDAs, and highly trained security dogs? Get in touch today!
NOTE: 50% up-front, non-refundable deposit for all stayover pet sits at the time of booking. If you should cancel, the deposit will be applied to future bookings. Win-win!
$50/hour for stop-ins - 1/2 hour minimum; $150/24-hour stayover, 1/2 day minimum to start. Contact me to discuss farm sits, out-of-state, international, and extended sit rates.
