During your busy workweek, your dog needs some extra exercise. A brisk walk, fresh air or a play session can break the monotony of the day. Less boredom and more exercise, equals decreased potential for destructive behavior such as chewing, excessive barking or 'youthful bladders.'
Some drawbacks of putting your pet in daycare, may be that they are exposed to varying degrees of health, temperament and social limitations. At home, they are safe and less stressed because their home routine and diet are maintained.
When I visit your pet, I'll take care of all of your pet's needs; playtime, a walk, food and fresh water, and of course - a treat! I was raised with a variety of pets! I have worked with dogs, cats, birds, fish, small mammals and reptiles. The most important experience I have is insulin injections and administering other medications. Please look at my references and profile on Care.com. I'm very proud of the service I provide.
Half hour dog walks are $18. An hour is $30. Please call me with any questions you may have. If you have already chosen a professional sitter, I'm happy for both of you. Please keep my information in the case of an emergency.

Pat is extremely professional and experienced. She is friendly, easily reachable and takes our concerns seriously. As a freelancer, my schedule is erratic and Pat has always made an effort to accommodate. Above all, I can't say enough about the high quality care that Pat gives Jordan. She truly gets to know your pet and treats them like her own. Pets really are Pat's passion and it shows.
Pat has exceeded our expectations and I recommend her with the highest confidence.
Pat has not only made our lives easier, but has made our lives better!
She genuinely cares for the animals, which you can see from the first time she meets them. Based on that first meeting we knew Zim would be in good hands.
Unfortunately, we had to put Zim down this winter and reached out to Pat so she could see him. She agreed right away to see him and even after many months - you could see the connection they shared. She even gave our daughters a sweet story to remember him by.
To find someone that has that much compassion for both your pet and your family is wonderful. I would highly recommend Pat!
To my knowledge, Pat has not missed a single day! She is phenomenal with my dogs and I come home to them happy each day!
Pat often sends me a text and sometimes pictures of the dogs. She lets me know how the walk/play time went and how the dogs seem to be doing. She has also informed me at times when one of the dogs has not seemed right or may have been ill.
Pat is very professional, dependable, and truly loves animals! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for pet care!
She took care of and loved my dog Emma like she was her own pet. She sent updates and photos every day of the things they did together. I always felt so comfortable with emma being in Pat's care and so happy that she was having a great day with her.
When I sold my house Pat could not have been more accommodating to take Emma for play date's when prospective buyer's wanted to come through.
We have moved of the area now and we miss Pat immensely. We will not be able to replace her that's for sure. Thank you Pat and stay in touch!

Pat is also very flexible and willing to help whenever she can. In short, we are glad to have Pat as part of our family. I would NOT hesitate to recommend Pat to others!!!
I was skeptical to get a dog-walker in the beginning, but we contacted Pat through a referral and Pat came over for an interview to introduce herself to not only us, but our Great Dane puppy. Pat's calm demeanor and professional attitude was something that helped ease my tensions about having a dog walker for the first time.
Pat is very organized, and exceedingly trustworthy. I have no fears in allowing Pat in my home when I'm not there and to take care of my big-little guy.
Pat does an excellent job of keeping things new with our puppy. She comes for walks almost every day, she brings him to the dog park with our permission, and she helps us introduce him to new things; which any puppy owner knows is imperative.
One thing that specifically stood out to me was Pat's willingness to help our family when needed. When we first started using Pat's services, we only had one house key made. My girlfriend forgot her key, and Pat came over (we don't live in the same town) and let my girlfriend in the apartment with the key we gave her. Pat came right away, and without hesitation. It's little things like this that separate Pat from the rest. If our family was not moving out of state, we would continue to use Pat going forward.
If anyone has any questions/concerns or would like further input on Pat's services, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pat is an excellent choice and has help us become better pet parents. I feel at ease knowing that Marley is going to be well taken care of while we are out. I would highly recommend Pat.
Since hiring Pat as our dog walker a few months back we have had zero regrets in the decision we made. She has been coming twice a day since June and takes care of our puppy (Ellie) like one of her own. From buying her new fun toys to teaching her new tricks, Pat has been great and has helped us develop/train Ellie as she grows into a mature dog.
Whenever something comes up last minute (such as night before cancellations or emergency stay at home visits), Pat has been extremely accommodating and has been more than willing to work around our schedule. This significantly eases the stress of owning a puppy when you know you have a reliable person to call whenever they are needed.
With that being said, I would recommend Pets R My Passion for anyone in the area who is looking for a dependable person to look after their dog/cat/etc. Pat has been a great help since we started and we will continue to use her services in the future.

Pat had a lot of patience, Mahjong was barking and barking, but Pat sat down on the floor and she was taking the dog biscuits from her.
Pat goes out of her way, she took in all my mail, changed the clocks when we had to turn them back. She took in 20 cases of items delivered by fed ex. She is amazing and goes out of her way for us and Mahjong.
Pat is a godsend. Now we can visit our daughter and grand kids in Pa and stay over instead of coming back the same day. We were able to go on a cruise and not have to worry about Mahjong. Because of Pat I am thinking about getting a Daushound too.
I would recommend Pat any day and she deserves 10 stars
Pat did an amazing job. She went above and beyond our expectations. Not only did she feed them. She kept their litter pans clean and then took all the garbage out. I would highly recommend Pat to anyone who is looking for a care taker for their animal. She is kind, caring and conscientious. You couldn't do any better.
From the moment I first spoke with Pat, I could tell that pets really are her passion. She takes the responsibility of caring for your animals seriously. Most importantly our young cats loved her! After a week away, we came home to calm kittens. I didn't even know that was possible! The text updates were the best. The overprotective, worry-wart mommy in me didn't want to leave our babies home...alone. Getting updates put my mind at ease so I could enjoy vacation. Our home was well cared for, the litter pans clearly well managed and everyone well fed.
But Pat takes it a step further. She didn't leave packages out front. She took the care of hiding our key perfectly. She left us a detailed note and followed up with us graciously. Pets R My Passion is a priceless service for any pet owner. I'm glad we took the leap of faith and will never go back to having my mom or neighbor just stop in while I'm away.
It's obvious that Pat cares about animals very much and has a special way with them. We now think of her as the cat whisperer! We would recommend Pat to watch your pet(s) - and we doubt you will be disappointed.
of town. She stayed overnight with her and walked her multiple times
during the day. We came home to a happy dog and a well maintained
I couldn't be happier with Pat! We are planning to use her again.
