I grew up on a farm in Boone, NC where I began pet sitting in 2013. My pet sitting experience started with friends and neighbors, and included a wide variety of pets - from farm animals to dogs and cats and even small mammals and reptiles. I began working professionally as a pet sitter three years ago, for the pet sitting business Mary Puppins Pet Sitting Services. While working for Mary Puppins, my duties included over-night / live-in stays (from one night to weeks at a time), dog walking, doggy play dates, and short-term pet sitting (whether to provide a potty break and/or food, or to spend time with a furry friend for a few hours or more). While working as a pet sitter full-time, I cared for dogs and cats of all ages - from puppies and kittens to the elderly. I'm experienced with special needs animals, dogs with health and medical conditions, and those who may just need a little extra attention and care.
