Call me old fashioned, I believe in Small Town America…..A time when local businesses knew you by name.
When I started Pawsitively Petsitting many years ago, I had a vision I would provide the highest level of personal service for your family and pets. I perform every exact detail you request for your pet, no exceptions. I can proudly say, I have offered top quality pet sitting for over 10 years.

People ask me, “Why don’t you grow your company, and increase your income?” But I know, as companies grow larger, the personal service generally disappears with it. Therefore, I have maintained Pawsitively Petsitting as a small personal pet care service that knows all its customers by name.

I’m pleased to say my happiness comes from:

  • A job well done
  • Happy and content pets that remember me
  • Clients that have a truly wonderful vacation due to their peace of mind

In My Home

  •  I also offer Home Style Dog Boarding services in my home.  Home Style Boarding is a limited service which is offered to a select handful of dogs to assure top quality care. This is an exclusive service for discriminating pet parents aiming for top quality love and care in my home.  Only 1- 2 dogs are allowed to stay at a time, so the service can be limited during peak times of year.
  •  My home is a very quiet and peaceful environment. The perfect tranquil place for dogs that are predisposed to nerves and anxiety when away from “Mom & Dad”.
  •  I highly approve of you bringing their beds and other comforts from your home! Their special food, toys and blankets are always welcome when boarding. At night we watch movies on the couch, and they are allowed to sleep in my bedroom too!
  •  I also encourage pet owners with geriatric or post-surgical pets to call. I provide expert medical care due to my veterinary technician experience. It would be my pleasure to review my dog boarding services with you! Please call to say hello, I look forward to speaking with you!
  • Home Style Boarding is limited to small breeds only.
