My name is Debby and I am a Bona-Fide animal lover :) I have been a Pet Parent myself for over 30 years and prior to that grew up in a home with cats and small breed dogs. I have spent every year of my life with 1 - 3 pets and cannot imagine life without my fur companions ! Their love & loyalty are a constant. They have and do enhance the quality of one's life !
Our pets are so valuable, that is why I believe they deserve the best care pawssible !!
When you can't be home for them, whether because of work, holiday or other obligations, you want them taken care of with the same love and attention you give them. That's exactly what I do at PreFURred Pet Care Services. I started this business (July/08) to be available to Pet Parents who prefur tokeep their pets in the comfort of their own home. It's a great alternative to utilizing a kennel which is not an option for a lot of owners for various reasons.
I take very seriously earning my clients (and their beloved pets) trust and respect.
I just celebrated my 10th year (june/17) of providing pet sitting/dog walking services.
I started in Edmonton (2008 - 2012) then Medicine Hat (2012 - 2017)
I moved to Calgary in Aug 2017 and am looking forward to providing exceptional pet sitting service in my new community!!
I am proud to say that in both prior cities that I provided services in I retained all my clients from the get go - some with me for the entire 5 years in each city.
A testament to the exceptional quality of care I provide is that a lot of my business has come from my clients refurring me to friends, family and coworkers. My reputation and integrity is everything. I do not compromise on the very high standards and ethics I have personally. I put my heart and soul into my visits and am known for going above and beyond.
MY PASSION IS IN MY SERVICE
I don't mind spending extra time (free to you) when I'm able or if I sense the pet(s) may need it. The feedback I receive regularly from clients is that their pets are happy, not stressed, content etc when they return home.
I also frequently hear from potential clients when we initially meet there surprise that a shy, skittish, anxious cat or dog is responding so well to me! They just seem to know somehow that they can trust me and so can you!!
Prior to starting my business I was in Community Health Care for 15 years. I am a care giver at heart and not only am I very sensitive to the needs of People and Animals I also have the willingness to do what I can to make a difference.
I am a fit and fun dog walker and especially love to take a ball tosser, Frisbee, or utilize a stick to up the fun factor and provide more exercise for them.
When walking on leash I adjust to the dogs normal pace.
I especially like to keep the dogs in my care stimulated either through play inside or back yard and while on walks I like to mix it up where we go. On off leash outings I like to have 3 or 4 different areas to explore with the dogs.
I especially love having your pets sleep with me (if its allowed) when I do overnights.
I love to participate in animal related fundraisers and one of my favorite is the annual SPCA DOG JOG.
I WILL BE RENEWING MY PET 1ST AID Oct 2017
