Let me introduce myself. Hi! I'm Genise. You may be curious as to why I wanted to start a pet sitting business. The best answer I can give you is, "Pets are my favorite people." I love our animals and spend my time away from home wondering what they are up to when we are gone. I find myself checking the camera just to make sure they are okay.
Up until a couple of years ago, I was working 50-80 hour weeks in the retail industry. I can tell you that spending that much time away from my family and my fur babies was making me quite a miserable person. I spent months telling my co-workers that I just wanted to
spend my time with cats and crafts.
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying I don't enjoy dogs and other animals, cats and crafts just sound like they go together. (In all honesty, nothing could be further from the truth. I love crafting projects and our cats love destroying my materials and projects.)
Growing up, I spent many hours working with my mom in her dog grooming business. Sadly, my mom got out of the business before I was old enough to learn the grooming side of things. I did enjoy the time I worked with her and I have always loved animals. I am that person that almost wrecks their car trying to avoid hitting a squirrel. I also want to pet everything from domestic to wild animals. I have asked myself before, "How many fingers do I really need?".
My goal is to provide pet sitting and dog-walking services to people like myself that love their pets. I will take care of your pet(s) and give them the same love and attention I give my own furry family embers.
Maybe you normally ask your niece or your neighbor or someone else you know to take care of your fur babies when you have to be away . Ask yourself this question, "Are they taking care of my fur babies in the same way that I would?".
We were away on vacation a few years ago and decided to ask our neighbor to look after our pets while we were gone. The first few days seemed to go pretty good. Somewhere towards the end of the week, he lost interest in finishing the job. We came home to a new mattress that was completely destroyed because our doggo didn't get the opportunity to go out. The cat box hadn't been touched at all. (We found surprises all over the house for a while after that.) Our beloved pets had no food or clean water. We were unhappy to say the very least. We also felt like we let our furry family members down. They rely on us for care, love, and attention.
Let me be there for you and your fur babies when you can't be. Enjoy your vacation knowing that they are being loved and looked after just like they would be if you were home. Let me come spend time with your furry friends while you are at work and brighten up their day.
