What does your business offer that is unique compared to similar businesses?

We specialize in personalized pet care in our clients’ homes; we make routine scheduled visits one to three times per day. We can also administer medications including oral and injections, which allows our clients to leave and take vacations knowing their pets are getting the care they need and deserve.

What is the most important part of your job on a daily basis?

Providing a multitude of services is very important. We offer daily dog walking, mid-day let outs, puppy training, and pet sitting their dogs and cats. We specialize in senior pet care and special-needs clients.

What are your keys to success?

Keeping our clients’ pets happy and safe is the heart and soul of our business. We are in the service industry and are professional, reliable and always doing right by our clients. Having someone you can trust speaks volumes in our industry.

What surprises you most about your job?

After 10 years of working with pets and operating a business, I still enjoy it.  I know my clients are greeted after arriving home with wagging tails, pups eating and kitties purring. Our clients are happy. This makes me happy.

Tell us something most people wouldn’t know about your company.

This is our profession. We have liability insurance, bonding and we do criminal background checks on our helpers. I received my accreditation from Pet Sitters International in 2008. I’m certified in basic dog training and first aid for dogs and cats. We are continuously educating ourselves in the pet sitting industry. We were voted No. 1 Denver’s Best Dog Walkers in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014. We’re looking forward to the growth of our company in the McKinney and Allen communities.
