What caused you to get into pet sitting/dog walking?
After working as a Paralegal for years in law offices, I decided that caring for animals was my true calling. I got a job as a vet receptionist in a Santa Barbara, CA, animal hospital. Calls would come to the vet office from the public seeking pet sitters, and my new career was born. After a few short years, I left my vet hospital job to pet sit full-time.
What is the most fulfilling part of owning a pet sitting/dog walking business?
In my pet sitting work, my natural compassion and love for animals and their humans are used daily. That keeps my heart strong and gives my life so much meaning.
What is the most challenging?
When pets I care for pass away, I find out how much I truly care for and love them. It is heartbreaking every time it happens, and I process that grief by preparing a memorial gift for clients whose pets have crossed the rainbow bridge.
Where do you see your business in 5 years?
In five years, I hope to have even more beloved avatar clients: those who value their pets very much and appreciate the exceptional care my company provides.
What has Time To Pet changed the most about how you run your business?
Time To Pet has given me peace of mind that my employees are aware of their schedules and will do all their jobs on time, has given my clients ease of payment using Time to Pet Payments. 99% of clients pay by credit card and appreciate that convenience. It has allowed me to streamline scheduling, client communications, invoicing, collecting payments, and more. Time To Pet has also allowed me to take on a 2.5-month job recently, tracking a complex care schedule that was constantly changing with multiple employees. I ultimately coordinated the transport of the pets to the Cayman Islands, and TTP helped keep me organized.
