About Franchesca

37 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I'm Franchesca. Over the past 35 years, I have had the honor of being the human parent to eight dogs and eleven cats. Each time one of them has crossed The Bridge, my heart has gotten a little heavier. I am currently the Guardian of Milo, a 6 year old rescue hound and his 3 rescue cats, Tommy, Bunker and Sebastian.

I extensive experience with Giant and Large Breed dogs, although I welcome the opportunity to care for the smallest of fur babies as well because we all know that huge hearts come in tiny packages! I am comfortable with and will care for all breeds of dog. I am happy to care for puppies as well as seniors and everyone in between. I am experienced and proficient in administering medications (two of my cats get pilled twice daily for thyroid issues), nail trimming and light grooming. I have been involved with both canine and feline adoptions for the past two decades and have fostered several babies during that time.

Every pet is unique and has different requirements for a successful "pet vacay". I believe that providing a stress free experience for your fur baby is paramount. I will provide responsible supervision of your pet in your home and will follow the schedule that he or she is accustomed to. In addition to being a reliable pet sitter, I am conscientious and will be attentive to your animal's needs while he or she is in my care. In this geographic area, overheating is a serious problem and access to fresh water is extremely important.

I welcome the opportunity to have a "meet and greet" with you and your four-legged friend.

I am available to take care of dogs, cats and any other critters that have found a place in your heart. I have experience with bunnies, hamsters, guinea pigs and some livestock. I am comfortable with and have cared for reptiles as well. I look forward to hearing from you!

Franchesca has taken care of my home and my dog, Buster, several times when I have had to travel for my job. She is caring and patient with him and Buster absolutely LOVES her! Franchesca is very respectful and always leaves my house in excellent condition. She takes the time to send me photos of Buster a few times every day that I am away. She is often available on short notice which I appreciate because my work can be really crazy sometimes. I completely trust my home and Buster with Franchesca!

Franchesca is a kind and intuitive pet sitter. She has an amazing way with cats and dogs. She demonstrates an innate understanding of their wants and needs. My pets just fell in love with her and look forward to her visits. I have special needs pets that require daily medication. She is really expert at pilling cats! I feel confident my pets are in safe hands when I am away because of Franchesca. She follows my instructions to the letter, which is really important to me. If I need last minute assistance, she is there and able to meet my needs. Her prices are fair and competitive. She is a great communicator, and she has an excellent relationship with the vet clinic where I bring my animals. I just have total faith and confidence in her abilities.
