Hi, my name is Linda and I'd be honored to watch over your home and pets for you while you explore the world elsewhere.  In my daily work life, I am a full-time certified pet care technician who cares for pets and mini-farms almost every day. I occasionally want to get away and see the world and would love to do so in a quiet place without worrying about the noise and disturbances of an impersonal hotel environment. 

My need for quiet time away from home is your gain! As a homeowner for decades I am familiar with the challenges a new and old home can bring with it, have helped build out three studded basements, and have helped mitigate plumbing issues in some client homes I have visited.

Pet care has been my passion for many years. I was raised with dogs, cats, hamsters, ducks, turtles, and a horse while growing up in my parent's home. I even raised Grand Champion White Leghorn chickens in 4-H and have been caring for pets professionally for over 17 years.  Studies in basic human and animal psychology, a calm patient demeanor, and many years of experience with the human-animal bond in various environments help me predict your pet's behavior to keep them safe. With my training and experience, I can provide the most relevant care possible for each pet's age, breed, and temperament. 

In short, I believe that all stages of life deserve quality care and support. To be there for your pets from 8 weeks to 18 years is an honor. My pet care services respect each stage of life with an appropriate care plan that reduces the fear, anxiety, and stress that can appear when pet owners depart, if even for a short period of time. I love quiet cuddle time or silently communicating with shy kitties while watching a good sunset. While you are gone I will be sure your home remains the way you left it while keeping watch to be sure there are no problems with home systems such as water, power, etc.

In exchange for accommodations, you get the same professional care for your home and pets that I would give to all my clients. As a travelling pet care provider, if I am contemplating a long term committment I'd like to discuss the possibility of working outside the home for a few hours during the day. Photos are my specialty and my phone is filled with client pet photos. I look forward to catching some photo ops with your pets as well!

Thanks again for stopping by and checking out my qualifications! I look forward to meeting you soon and discussing your home care needs.

~ Linda
