Paw Fanatic Pet Sitting
WHY SHOULD I USE A PET SITTER?
Pet sitters provide your pet with loving care in his or own familiar environment. It takes away your pets anxiety of an unfamiliar kennel, and gives you peace of mind. We take pride in providing the best quality of care . We live in the community we serve and own pets ourselves. We are bonded and insured. We are a member of the world's leading organization for professional sitters, Pet Sitters International, who provide us training, certification, and the latest information to help us maintain excellence in pet sitting.
A professional pet sitter will not only come in and play, feed, and walk with your pet, they can keep an eye on their physical and emotional well being. You won't have to worry that your pet will come in contact with other animals whose health status is unknown or be stressed by the sounds of barking dogs in a kennel. A pet sitter can give you updates and pictures and your pet will become familiar with their pet sitter as a trusted friend. We operate 365 days a year.
WHAT KIND OF ANIMALS DO YOU CARE FOR?
We care for dogs, cats, fish and some birds. We do not care for dogs with aggressive behaviors or have a history of biting, fighting, or attacking other animals or people.
WHY SHOULD I HIRE A PET SITTER INSTEAD OF MY NEIGHBORS OR FAMILY?
For many people, a trusted neighbor, friend or family member that is familiar with your pet may work just fine. But consider the burden you are putting on them. Because our family, friends, and neighbors care for us, they find it hard to say "no". But over time, it can strain your relationship, change their plans, and picking up that poop may not be something they are comfortable with! Hiring a professional pet sitter brings you peace of mind that your pet is being cared for as you would want.
I HAVE FAMILY, FRIENDS, OR NEIGHBORS THAT WANT TO HELP WITH A FEW VISITS, IS THAT OKAY?
Paw Fanatic Pet Care cannot be responsible for an assignment where others are sharing the work. If anyone has access to your home during our scheduled dates, we must be notified in advance and we will not be liable or responsible for any damages or lost items. All other individuals that visit the home, we request them to leave a log of their visit.
WILL YOU LET ME KNOW HOW MY PET IS DOING WHILE I AM AWAY?
Yes, Absolutely! We are in the process of implementing pet sitting software that will allow you to receive email in "Real Time". We can currently text you with a picture and brief note to provide you peace of mind.
HOW MANY PET VISITS SHOULD I REQUEST?
Each client has different requirements, we visit dogs between 3 and 4 visits per day and between 1 and 2 visits per day for cats. We will discuss this during our initial consultation.
DO YOU ALWAYS VISIT AT THE TIME WE REQUEST?
We will make every attempt to meet your request. While we understand your pets needs are our #1 priority, we do allow for a two hour window of time to meet your request. This is due to peak times, holidays, emergencies, and scheduling needs. It has been rare that we cannot meet your time request within 30 minutes.
DO YOU PICK UP MY DOG WASTE?
Yes, we do! We do ask for you to dispose of bags. We do not take dog waste bags with us.
CAN I BE ASSURED OF THE SAME PET SITTER EACH VISIT?
We prefer to have the continuity of the same sitter. However, if the sitter is not available, then a fully informed sitter will be available for back up. We not only like to keep our clients happy, we like to keep our sitters happy!
