At Your Bark and Call!

Pet Sitter in Concord

I'm an experienced pet-sitter/Veterinary technician who only offers out-sitting because I believe your pets should be at home, where they are most comfortable. (This also has the added benefit of your home being occupied --giving you the gift of peace of mind.) I have experience with dogs - large and small, cats - inside and out, horses, birds, fish - saltwater and tropical, small mammals like rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, reptiles - large and small, horses and elephants. My services also include feeding/watering, walking, cleaning up after, administering medication as needed and being a kind, compassionate companion to your furry family member while you're gone. Additionally I will pick up the mail/newspapers, water inside and out, deal with outside vendors (UPS, FedEx, gardeners, housekeepers, etc) take messages, clean and do laundry and just be a general presence to make your home unappealing to that undesirable element. I have excellent rates -- only $50 flat fee per night, no matter how many animals you have! And my reliability? Well, here's what some of my current clients have to say about me: Jimmy L. October 23 Toni has house-pet sat for us several times in the past two years. Not only does she love and play with our pets, she takes excellent care of them. She even texts us with pics of what our pets are up to while we are gone! We love her and won't even consider using another sitter. We check her availability before we schedule our tips -- that's how good she is. We highly recommend her. B. O. October 31 Toni is fantastic! Really, she is. Here's why: - My wife and I share our home with an old Great Dane, a young Chihuahua, and a mean and feisty cat. They are a handful, have specific needs, and all crave attention, and their alone time. None of them phase Toni. She's just as comfortable with our 140lb Great Dane as she is with our 7lb Chihuahua. - We leave specific meal plans for all three animals, insist on regular potty times (especially for our old one), and ask Toni to follow our routines, all in an effort to make our animals feel like things are continuing as normal when we're away. Toni has always followed our directions to the letter. - Our first trip away was for two days. Then three. Our latest trip was five days away. With all three trips, the first and only person we called was Toni. She stays at our house and we feel totally comfortable with her there. We don't have to worry about mail (she gets it), or package delivery (she brings them in), but most of all, we can enjoy our time away because we know Toni is watching our animals as if we were there. - Toni is a respectful and courteous house guest as well. She is clean and thoughful. Whenever we return home, it was if nobody had been there (even though she was). The trash is taken out, and Toni has cleaned up after herself. I think she may have even done a load of laundry this past trip, to wash the towels she used while staying at our house. - Best of all, Toni doesn't charge an arm and a leg. She is well worth the investment and whether you're going overnight, or on a week long trip, you can rest assured that Toni will take great care of your pets (large or small), and your home. If you have any questions about Toni, or her services, please do not hesitate to let me know. I'd be more than happy to sing her praises. Thanks for reading. Leona D. November 1 Toni is super accommodating. I have had her watch my pets three times. Two of those times were several days and planned pretty far in advance. One of the times was last minute and she couldn't have been nicer about it. The thing is I could board them. I could have a friend look in on them. The reason I go to her specifically is because I view my little pets as family. I would not want them just "looked in on" or just taken out to potty. I want someone who will be there and be a presence in my home to keep my girls company so they will not feel abandoned. I want noise in the house. I want them feeling very little is different. This is what I value about her and her service. She stays with my dogs not just to watch them but keep them company. Talk to them and play with them. This is not an easy feat however. I have one beagle that is super needy, very nervous and doesn't like anybody. She is a handful and if she likes you, you are golden. She likes Toni. This little dog is so loopy, I wouldn't blame Toni if she increased her price just to take care of her. She doesn't bat an eye when taking care of her though. Not only do I want my pets taken care of like they were tiny humans, but I am price driven as well. I want the best value I can get for what it is I want. Her prices are completely reasonable. Since she does spend all her time at your place, she could easily increase her rates. I hope she doesn't though :) Her dependability is spot on. She is where she says she will be when she says she will be there. She cleans up after herself, cleans up after my pets, is considerate and compassionate. I enjoy her and having her in my home.
