Why Did I Become A Pet Sitter?

I walked in to the kennel and the first thing I noticed was the pink nose of a richly colored Chocolate Lab. She pressed her body against hoto of Northville Pet Sitterthe chains of her kennel so she could be pet through the links. Unlike most of the other dogs who were barking and jumping around, she just sat quietly and peacefully as if to say “I’ve finally found who I was looking for.” From that moment on my dog Casey and I have been inseparable. She not only is there in happy times but also comforts me when I am sick and protects me from danger. She is my best friend, my companion and my guardian angel.

I know that I am not alone in the way I feel about Casey or any of my other animals. We all share a certain bond with our pets that is unlike any other in this world; which is why I became a pet sitter. My clients are pet parents just like me;  you worry about your fur babies like they are children and when they are not with you, you worry about how they are being taken care of and if they are happy. I strive every day to make sure my staff and I make your pets as happy and as comfortable as possible while their Mom & Dad are away. Not only do we spend time making your pets as happy as possible; we also keep you updated on how they are doing so you don’t have to ruin your time away from home worrying about them.

Owning a pet sitting business to me is more than playing with cute puppies and kittens all day (though I will admit it is fun!). It is making sure that I provide you with the peace of mind knowing that, by leaving your fur babies with Menlys Pet Care, you couldn’t have placed them in more dependable and caring hands.

  3. Great heart touching story. I hope every pet boarding service provider should understand what pet needs. But a well trained pet sitters knows everything like how to take care of pets.

    Thank you so much for sharing such a great story.
