Recently I surveyed some of our wonderful 2 legged clients asking them what is important to them when it comes to choosing pet care for their fur kids. An overwhelming 81% said that experienced dog walkers and sitters were very important when deciding who will care for their pets. When hiring new staff I look for those who not only have dogs and cats of their own but also have worked with pets in the past. For example, Sue is a vet tech, Michelle has countless hours in dog rescue and Mike is a zookeeper!
