No Females in Heat
Marianne H to provided drop in visits for my 2 Tonkinese cats all of last week. I was impressed during our meet and greet session when she came to meet the kitties and capture their feeding routines. I walked her through what can be a fairly complex self-cleaning litter box instructions and was happy to see that technology did not scare her one bit. I was even more impressed with the constant communication she provided ...
Marianne was easy to work with to set up a meet and greet with Lucky and was very caring and put Lucky's safety first because he is sometimes impossible to calm down. She was on time, sent lovely pictures of Lucky on his walks, and even brought my packages and trash cans in at times. She was easy to communicate with, and I will definitely be reaching out again when I have the need in ...
Marianne took care of our cats for 3 1/2 days and we couldn't have been happier with her care, communication, and commitment to them. When she came out for our "Meet and Greet", I knew she would take wonderful care of them! She followed through on in all of their feeding routines, clean-up, and was punctual. When she may have run a little bit late one time, she contacted me beforehand to let me ...

What Marianne would like to know about your dog
For dogs needing walks, it is important to know how socialized your pet is to other dogs (if dog aggressive) and to people so that I may adjust the walk as needed. Does your pet have separation anxieties? This is good to know beforehand so that I can provide the best care in helping them be at ease while you are away and if I must be away for brief errands while pet sitting on extended stays, I want to be sure your dog is secure and relaxed until I return. For special needs pets, I have walked a couple of dogs who were blind and they required a little extra assistance and time in order to enjoy being able to get outdoors and go for a walk. Those are just a few things good to know before starting the visit or pet sitting and going on walks.
