Although, I have 20 plus years of experience in the criminal justice field, my passion has always been the love of owning an caring for pets. My folks raised us on a "gentleman's farm", extremely unique for the area we lived in, the farm included; goats, chickens, horses, dogs (German shepherds), cats, fish, ducks, turkeys and strays who would wander in. About 10 years ago while friends vacationed in Europe, inquired any interests in pet sitting/house sitting over night for her four dogs (2 cairn terriers/2 schnauzers). The pet sitting job entailed medication for two of dogs, walking, feeding and taking care of house, mail, deliveries, watering plants and documenting phone messages all while maintaining my full-time job. I absolutely loved every minute of it! The second family has two pugs, occasionally I take care of them over the years as well. One of the pugs lost her eye. I give her medication, walk, feed, house sit overnight, bring in the mail and newspaper, and care for the other playful puppy. They are great people with great pets! The third family has a Weimaraner, Chow Chow, two cats and a tropical fish tank. Jack the Weimaraner has severe medical issues but loved to play with mini dachshund.

I met Claudette at the dog park and we bonded immediately. She began to dog sit my Zeke when we were away on vacations. Zeke was a difficult dog who didn't like many people. Claudette knew exactly how to deal and redirect him when he became agitated. Zeke passed away and before I would even consider adopting Daisy (my current fur baby) I was in touch with Claudette to make sure she'd be available to both walk and dog sit before I'd make my final decision. There is no one else I would trust to watch over my precious pup. She always goes the extra mile and she makes sure to tell me and advise me when Daisy is sick or sends me pictures when Daisy is being adorable. Any family would be lucky and fortunate to have her watching over their special pup.
