My name is Brittany, and I moved to the wild west a year ago, after doing graduate work in theatre at Yale and Carnegie Mellon. As they are for a lot of people, pets have always been a part of my life. I grew up with cats, dogs, hamsters, fish–even salamanders [that I dragged home in a bucket from the local pond, much to my mother’s dismay]. Even with the craziness of graduate school, I knew that I could always make time for a furry friend!
Pet sitters hold a very special place in my heart. As a child, my family traveled frequently, so having pets–especially our Westie, Sassy–was very challenging. After struggling through kennel after kennel, we finally found a responsible pet sitter who boarded Sassy in her home every time we left town. Although she may not have realized it, she made a huge impact on our lives; because of people like her, families like mine were able to enjoy the gift of pets.
This blessing is one that I want to pay forward. If the only thing standing between you and having a pet is frequent travel, or inability to walk the dog during the workday, then I can provide you with a solution: me! My pet-sitting philosophy is twofold:
1. It’s about the pet: I treat clients’ pets with the same care and respect with which I treat my own.
2. It’s also about the pet parent: I create an environment that the parent is trusting of and comfortable with.
If you’re looking for a responsible, helping hand with your pets,then I am only a phone call away!
