  Philosophy on Pet Care...
       
   

Kristy realizes that knowledge in pets and their care is a continual process. Animals themselves teach her something new every day. Having years of experience in caring for her own and other’s pets, alertness to changes in behavior, being responsive, calm, conscientious and reliable, all help to make her be the best pet care professional she can be.

       
 

Kristy is a member of Pet Sitters International (PSI), PetSit USA, and PetSits.com. In order to stand out from typical pet sitters, decided to go through a background check and a certification process.

  • Background check first cleared on November 19, 2013 and repeats yearly.
  • Completed the PSI Certification exam on March 26, 2014 with a score of a 95%.
  • Certified by Pet Tech in pet CPR and First Aid in September 2014.

Please see the Memberships/Certifications on the right hand menu for more information.

       
  A Little Bit About Us ...
 

Kristy & Jason own 3 Border Collies (Comet, Rusty, & Maverick) All of us here love to have visitors!

Kristy has been pet sitting in other people's homes since she was in high school. Friends and co-workers would ask her to care for their pets when they were on vacation. Through these opportunities, she has taken care of many different breeds of dogs, cats, and other exotic pets.

During college, Kristy worked in a kennel and took care of 200+ dogs in a given weekend. At one point in time, she was the kennel manager and was responsible for feeding all the pets, administrating medication, exercising the dogs, and cleaning and maintaining the kennels.

 
   
 

Kristy has worked with the dogs in basic obedience training, agility training, and most recently, herding. Blitz (2001-2014) competed in a NADAC and USDAA in agility and even went to the NADAC Championships in October 2005. Comet (born 2005) has just started herding and agility so she hasn't competed yet. Rusty (born 2012) is my rescue dog who is just starting to learn the basics of agility and herding. Comet and Rusty are both certified therapy dogs. Maverick is learning all the basics for agility, herding, and how to be a good therapy dog.

During the day (about 4-5 hours), Kristy teaches mathematics at the local college.

We are very excited to incorporate our love for animals into an opportunity to work with you and your pets.


A little bit about our home...

Now, we are offering our home as an alternative to a Kennel. Our home is a safe, warm, loving, and clean environment. Your pet will be treated as one of our own. We have a fenced in backyard, with plenty of room for play. Your dog would be included in any of our family activities. Your dog will have free roam of our home while we are present. We believe in crating (my dogs and yours) only when we are not home, this is for the safety of your pet and ours. I do have one extra crate if you cannot bring your own. Sorry, but no cats. I recently developed allergies to cats!!

I only allow one family of dogs to stay with us at a time. Sometimes, I will have other pets (rabbits, hamsters, etc.) staying with us when we have a family of dogs.



Some other important information...

     All pets are welcome to vacation with us except cats...sorry but I am allergic to them.


     Please supply your own pet food. This is to help prevent your pet from getting an upset
        stomach from changing food.

     I prefer pet owners to supply their own crate (for dogs) or cage (for other pets),
        but I do have an extra dog crate available. Please bring a shirt or blanket with your scent
        for your pets comfort.

     I require all payment up front in the form of cash, check, or money order.
        Anyone providing a "bad check" will be charged an additional $30.00.
        Feel free to check out my other policies.



For the Dogs...

     A meet & greet a few days ahead of time is very important and required. Agreeing to meet
        does not guarantee your dog a spot in my home. Your dog must meet all my requirements.

     Your dog must be housebroken and have no separation issues.

     Your dog must be non aggressive, compatible with my dogs, up to date on his/her shots,
        and on some type of flea control.

     I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have!


We love referrals! If you refer a friend, family member, or co-worker to me, then you will get a discount on your next visit! We will also barter
 

       
 
The Benefits of Hiring a Pet Sitter
   

Kristy's Pet Sitting provides a convenient and stress free alternative to boarding your pets while you're traveling. We tailor your pet's visit to your pet and your specific needs. Our goal is to exceed your expectations with every request that you have for your pet.
 

 

Professional pet and home sitting is not an economy care option and we realize it may not be in everyone's budget. However, it's a small price considering the peace of mind and convenience provided by experienced, insured, responsible, reliable, and dedicated pet and home care professionals. Please feel free to contact us at info@kristyspetsitting.com
