Julie – Pack Leader
Pet sitting is something that has evolved into a career for Julie. As a kid, she was the one bringing home strays and dreaming of horses. Julie became active in 4-H at age 11 when her parents gave into her pleas for a horse with the purchase of Mr. Pringles, an Arabian/quarter horse. Her passion for animals is innate and over the years her love for all animals has deepened.
Our pet sitters/dog walkers are experienced, trained employees who love your pets! Our team is hand picked not only based on their skills and experience, but also their love for animals. They truly care about the pets in their care. Our employees must pass an extensive background check and drug screen before joining the team. Rest assured that your home and pets are in good hands.
Our employees work as a team. You will be assigned a primary sitter, but if he/she is sick, on vacation, or can’t be there for any other reason, another team member will be there to step in. You won’t be half a world away worrying about things as you can have peace of mind that your pets will always get exceptional care. We use state of the art pet sitting software, too. The team has an app on their phone that allows them to check in and out of the job, real-time, and marks their GPS location at the beginning and end of their time in your home. They will also send you and email update and photos at the end of each visit.
We are extremely proud of our team. Please take time to view their photos and read about them. We think you’ll agree that our team is top notch! We want to care for your pets, and we will always make sure they get the very best care.
