QUALITY of care and service provided to my pet clients and pet parents is most important to me. QUANTITY is a number. Your pet will never be a number to me.




From the Humane Society of the United States:

Why hire a pet sitter?

A pet sitter—a professional, qualified individual paid to care for your pet—offers both you and your pet many benefits.

Your pet gets:

The environment he knows best.
His regular diet and routine. 
Relief from traveling to and staying in an unfamiliar place with other animals (such as a boarding kennel). 
Attention while you're away.

You get:

Happier friends and neighbors, who aren't burdened with caring for your pet.
The peace of mind that comes from knowing that your pet is being cared for by a professional.
Someone to bring in your newspaper and mail so potential burglars don't know you're away. 
Someone who will come to your home so you don't have to drive your pet to a boarding kennel.
Other services provided by most pet sitters, such as plant watering.

What should I look for?

It's important to learn all you can about a prospective pet sitters' qualifications and services. Before selecting a pet sitter, interview the candidates over the phone or at your home. Find out the following:

Can the pet sitter provide written proof that she has commercial liability insurance (to cover accidents and negligence) and is bonded (to protect against theft by a pet sitter or her employees)?
What training has the pet sitter completed?
Will the pet sitter record notes about your pet—such as his likes, dislikes, fears, habits, medical conditions, medications, and routines? 
Is the pet sitter associated with a veterinarian who can provide emergency services? 
What will happen if the pet sitter experiences car trouble or becomes ill? Does she have a backup? 
Will the pet sitter provide related services such as dog walking, dog training and play time?
Will the pet sitter provide a written service contract spelling out services and fees?
How does your pet sitter make sure that you have returned home?
Will the pet sitter provide you with the phone numbers of other clients who have agreed to serve as references?
Even if you like what you hear from the pet sitter and from her references, it's important to have the prospective pet sitter come to your home to meet your pet before actually hiring her for a pet-sitting job. Watch how she interacts with your pet—does your pet seem comfortable with the person? If this visit goes well, start by hiring the pet sitter to care for your pet during a short trip, such as a weekend excursion. That way, you can work out any problems before leaving your beloved pet in the pet sitter's care for longer periods



Let's face it, our pets are special members of our family

All of our pets are Special Pets. As much as we would like to keep our special pets close to us all of the time, there are times we cannot.

Paw and Order, SPU (Special Pets Unit) is here to provide the care, love and hugs your special pets need and deserve, right in the environment they are most comfortable in....your home!
