About Sarah

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a seasoned professional who sold my well known pet care business a few years back to one of my amazing employees to raise a family. Recently I've acquired some free time, and am desperately craving the bond I use to have with my furry clients, especially overnight pet care. Due to being able to work remotely, I have the ability to stay in your home longer than the typical hours most folks/businesses are available. If I did leave, it would only be for a few hours. Due to the availability and my expertise, I'm asking a bit more for my services. However, you're going to get top-notch care, and you'll be able to tell with my communication and how your pet/s react. I'm also experienced in animal communication and Reiki healing services, especially for senior or pets with chronic illnesses. I have 3 dogs, a cat, and geese myself, however, they will be well cared for if you need my services. Due to my life being different than before, I wouldn't have time for the demands to get back into the pet care business full-time, however, this is the perfect way to make up for what I've been missing and to fill my soul. I'm a very loving, compassionate person, and I care deeply about children, animals, and the earth.

Besides all my years experience in pet care, I also have a degree in Psychology, Sociology, and Elementary Education. I also have several years experience as a nanny. There's not much I haven't done, and I love to continue my education and training even though it may change directions like the wind!

I didn't include picture of previous client pets due to privacy issues, but I used to have hundred of furry and feathery clients. However, I am the master photographer when it comes to your pets, and be prepared to get a TON of professional style shots. (With photo apps from my phone, of course!) This was by far one of my client faves about how I ran my business. I prefer to send through email so I don't interrupt your vacation plans and you aren't forced to respond. You'll also get daily progress notes written in your home or in email if you prefer. I don't have a limit of the number of pets you can have either. I used to have an amazing client with over 10 dogs, and all were loved equally the same.

I also service farm animals. The sky is the limit, except a tarantula. I love all God's creatures, but I just CAN'T do a tarantula! Due to my experience being in the business, I have a alot of knowledge about various things if you have questions or looking for advice. I've met a ton of amazing individuals in the business or just involved in animal welfare. I'm very interested in alternative methods and therapies, and have been training in various areas with animals and humans for years. My own pets were very pleased to have me practice on them..lol.

I don't charge extra for additional pets. The flat fee is all you pay. The more pets the merrier in my mind. However, due to sacrificing holidays, I do have to charge $10 extra per service since I miss out on time with family.
