you start the business?
I have finally reached a point in my life where I have the opportunity to pursue
my lifelong passion -- loving and caring for animals.
If you could do it again, what would you do differently?
not have waited so long to start my business. I absolutely love the pets that I care for as well as their owners and find
my work more fulfilling than what I dreamed possible.
What's the best business advice your parents gave?
always be fair, honest and have integrity in all you do in life.
What personality trait helps you the most? Without question, it is my unconditional
love and understanding of animals. I sincerely give my heart and soul to them in every way possible, as often as possible.
What is the hardest
part of the job?
Saying good bye to the animals when I have to go home.
caring for the animals -- it's that simple. They're the absolute best and I adore them all!!
What is your least expensive product or service?
one-time daily walking, $18, or a pet-feeding at $3 each. I offer exceptionally competitive pricing on all of the services
that I provide to my customers along with discounts. My clients often comment that they are thrilled with the prices they
are charged for the high level of service that I provide them and that my prices are below those of other pet sitting services
offered elsewhere. I provide great service for a great price -- it works beautifully for my animal friends, their owners and
Overnight vacation visits and holidays as they are generally for longer
periods of time with
multiple feedings, play time, etc. Oftentimes, I have also provided additional services to my clients by attending to their
home needs while they are away vacationing as well (mail, plants, lights, garbage, etc) to ensure that their animals are provided
continuous familiar care from one person. This eases the animals anxiety while their owners are away and provides them with
the highest level of quality care possible -- my ultimate goal.
Describe your worst customer or experience.
who does not have the time to love their animals, A neglected and love-starved animal is heartbreaking to witness. I do my
best to compensate wherever and whenever possible to give these animals the love they deserve.
When you leave the business, what will you do?
will never leave my business. I will only expand my business with time. I value and nurture the relationships that I build
with the animals that I care for as well as their owners. These relationships will likely last a lifetime. In the future,
I plan to incorporate a pet day-care service for animals 30 pounds or less and then ultimately own-operate-manage an animal
no-kill shelter. Caring for animals is my life's calling.
