I would highly recommend Arlene as a pet sitter. My dog and cat are my family. What I appreciate most about Arlene is not just her obvious love for animals (and my animals immediate love for her), but her professional approach. Pet sitting is not Arlene’s side job – it’s what she loves and does for her livelihood. She cares and spends lots of time loving my animals. She leaves detailed notes, so I ...

I highly recommend Arlene Spencer to take care of your pets. Arlene worked for me as a dog walker for many years. I have often recommended her to others and they have never been disappointed. She is professional, trustworthy and reliable. I like that she is certified in pet first aid. But best of all, she will love your pets as her own.

A Professional Pet Sitter Who Cares

My name is Arlene. Dogs and cats have always been a part of my life. I'm knowledgeable in basic nutrition and basic training and would be happy to share my knowledge. Certified in Pet CPR and Pet First Aid will allow you to know your " fur baby" is in experienced hands. I've been in business locally for over 10 years and 10 years in New Jersey. My philosophy is that every pet is a ...

What Arlene would like to know about your dog

Are any special quirks? For instance, fear of thunder. Have they ever bitten any one. Are there feeding habits I should know about. Is food left down all day or does it need to be picked up after the meal, etc. I always have the owner fill out a detailed personalized questionnaire.
I've sat for Chows and other aggressive breeds, If you prefer to have them in a crate, that's no problem. Run of the house is also an option. I have no fear of large or small dogs and can handle them.

When Arlene watches your pet

Lots of TLC at all times. There are lakes around my neighborhood that I routinely walk my dog. It's a nice long walk . Play time is as long as the puppy/dog wants. They can play safely in my home (or yours).
