More than 63% of all households in the U.S. have some kind of pet. There are an estimated 169 million cats and dogs alone, not to mention other types of pets. According to the American Humane Society, these pets are happiest when they're at home, surrounded by familiar sights, sounds and smells.
Our Sitters are insured, bonded, undergo criminal background checks and are employees, not independent contractors. Each sitter (at 90 days of employment) complete a Pet CPR and First Aid Certification and complete a 1-month training program. Every Sitter is GPS tracked, signs a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement and provides proof of service delivery with real time reports at each visit, accompanied with photos, a time stamp and GPS tracking of our visit, and an app that puts the client in control of the deliverables to pet pets routines.
As a company, we provide a service policy agreement needed to enter our client homes, provide pet care, release of veterinary care in cases of emergency or illness, a confidentiality agreement, and the full terms of services.
