Hi everybody! Welcome to my first ever blog!!! Today I want to talk about the benefits of having a team to take care of your furry loved ones.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been more than 7 years since I decided to start my own petsitting and dogwalking business! It was a perfect way for me to make a career out of my love of animals (I tell everyone that I have the best job on earth!). I am so grateful for my more than 70 amazing clients from Cary, Apex, Raleigh, Holly Springs, Fuquay Varina, Willow Springs, and Angier who have welcomed me into their lives and homes and trusted me with their over 100 amazing pets.
With my expanding client base I am very excited to announce that Comfy Critters is growing too as we welcome Marianne, Kelley, and Kim to our pet-sitting staff! When I started Comfy Critters, I set out to offer nothing short of the highest quality service. During every visit I try to cater to your pet’s every need and I want to be able to offer the same level of care to all of your pets.
Our new caregivers all share my passion for animals. I have personally trained each of them, and they all bring their own unique skillset to care for your pets, so you can be sure that your pets will get the Comfy Critter care that you have come to expect. Each went through an extensive hiring process, which included both phone and face-to-face interviews, and they have all been cleared through an ACUTRAQ background check. You can rest assured that our sitters are all professional, trustworthy, and compassionate.
Additional benefits to the client:
It’s been a busy year for Comfy Critters. My new team members are shadowing me to learn how to properly care for your pets. Especially for our new clients, me and a team member will come to your house for an initial meet-and-greet so that we will both be familiar with your home, your pets, and their routines. This insures that you are comfortable with your caregiver, but especially that your pets are too! While you are away, we take extra care to look out for any changes in behavior, eating, drinking, or play habits and will alert the owner immediately. We can also help out with other items around the house like bringing in the mail or taking care of plants. In my 7 years as a professional petsitter, I’ve experienced just about everything you can imagine, and I am confident that the team I’ve assembled will do everything they can to make sure your precious family members are safe and cared for in the best way possible. My hope is that our expansion can bring you extra peace of mind that should an emergency occur while you are away, there will be a team of trustworthy, qualified pet sitters to handle just about any situation. Our goal, as always, is to far exceed your expectations.
Additional benefits to the pets:
I’ve always been committed to visits that last at least 30 minutes to give your pets the love and attention that they deserve. While I am so excited to expand my client base, I would never want to feel like I need to “rush” through a visit in order to attend to all my pets. The benefit of having a petsitting team is that you can be sure your pets will still receive the same amount of time and attention that you expect from Comfy Critters – even during our busiest times of the year! We will also be able to provide you with more options for scheduled visits, so as to best cater to your pets’ routines and schedules to limit any stress that may come from having someone other than you caring for them. We will also do our best to prioritize consistency for visits (having the same team member come to your house). This should give you extra peace of mind that your pets will have a familiar face who knows their personalities, preferences, and any specialized health issues. As always, we maintain detailed records for each of our pet clients detailing their preferences and particular instructions regarding about your pet’s care.
