House Sitting in North Falmouth
Find a loving dog sitter to watch your dog overnight in your home.
About: I believe a happy pet is a reflection of the love and care they are receiving from their family as well the love they’re receiving from caregivers like myself. I also believe that a well behaved pet is just as beneficial to the family as it is to the animals themselves. That’s why I try to live by and practice the same principles in my life that I also make it a priority to provide to my clients and their loving companions by guaranteeing those basic principles which are communication, compassion, and commitment which always come from a place of respect and kindness. And it shouldn’t come as a surprise when I say that I’ve found that most animals respond extremely well to this type of positive reinforcement, recognizing and often craving this kind of balanced energy that makes for better relationships all around. That’s why I feel that this approach of mutual respect between myself and the animals that I care for is often contagious with other animals, especially whenever I have more than one with me because I genuinely believe the animals are not only more intelligent than most people believe, but more importantly and not unlike humans, animals are happier and more relaxed when there is structure and harmony in the group. And that structure shouldn’t be confused with inappropriate obedience methods that in my experience are often a result of someone’s inability to practice patience and or simple acts of kindness and compassion, whether it be with an animal or another human being. That’s why I love being around animals and other people that love and appreciate them, especially those that are willing to love and care for the ones that can’t advocate for themselves! My daily routine revolves around what is important to me, and that is my health and my passion, which is loving and caring for animals! I believe Pets are most comfortable in their own environment which is why I prefer caring for pets in their own homes if and when this is possible. I find it better for everyone, including the pets when I’m a guest in their space because I’m obviously aware of my boundaries as a guest in their home, and the pets are usually aware of what they’re allowed to do being in the space they’re accustomed to.

About: I’ve had dog(s) since before I was born and I try to make sure that they receive adequate back rubs, treats, and outfits in addition to their basic care. As a kid I watched many neighbors dogs while they were on vacation and I am always the first one to fill a food or water bowl At this time I have a wide range of availability to care for dogs in my schedule. I am open to different care options to best meet the dog’s needs I have a fenced in area where my three dogs are able to let themselves in and out via doggy door. They can have as much food as they want as they are feeder fed.
About: I have provided pet care services for friends over the last ten years while friends and neighbors have enjoyed time away on vacations. I can promise that your dogs and cats will be cared for properly, given daily walks, and be provided interactive play time. I have a full-time job which provides flexibility in my daily schedule. I can develop a schedule that works between the client and myself to ensure the needs of the pets are covered. I will offer a time to meet the owners and pets before any service in order to create a trusting and safe environment for the client.
“Heidi is amazing! Took great care of my kitties, sent daily updates and pictures, and even tidied up a little before I came home! My vacation was so much more relaxing knowing my fur babies were in good hands. :) Would absolutely ask Heidi to pet-sit again next time I go out of town!”
“Made it home--Chase was incredibly calm and relaxed. The house is in great shape. Jared and Tanya, you are both truly wonderful. Thank you so much. When it's a dire, last minute situation like that, I typically just prepare myself to "take what I can get" in regards to quality of sitter. It's been really great having exceptional service despite the frantic circumstances. Cheers!”

“Jamie watched our pug and cat while we were out of town. She was really patient with all of our questions, paid really great attention to our pets’ needs and routines, and was communicative while we were away. We came back home to happy, healthy, pets and a clean house. Thanks so much, Jamie!”
“I have always known her for putting the pets she cares for first before her own convenience. There have been times when animals she has taken care of weren't given exceptional care by their owners and she rectified it. She loves animals including her car Forest, who wakes her up every morning. I can't recall when she wasn't employed in a job setting that didn't have something to do with animal care. I would fully recommend her for any job involving animals, she cares about them first.”
“I had two very reactive dogs. Derek was patient and understanding with them, taking the time and consideration they needed when he was with them. They grew to really love spending time with him and I would highly recomend using him for your pets.”
“Amanda was responsive and attentive. It was a pleasure to use her as a sitter for my puppy. I will definitely use her again.”
