Vacation/Out-of-Town Visits: Possibly!

I've been a pet sitter for twelve years. My vacation/out-of-town client schedule has been consistent each year, and I am still providing vacation visits to several original clients. This year, there are some change-ups. and I have some time available. With that said, July is mostly booked and I just had my first August booking. Feel free to reach out on vacations, if I don't have time available, I can reach out to colleagues and offer a recommendation.

Daily Visits:
Currently Available.


I can accommodate two pet households in my work week schedule (late mornings, mid-day, late afternoons; a workday is when humans come home for the evening each day). Life ebbs and flows, and over the past couple of years, I've had some long-time daily clients move (fortunately, we stay connected), and the worst part of being a pet care giver, I've had some long-time clients pass away.

Of note: On Wednesdays, from May through October, I am not available from 1:30 p.m.to 7:00 p.m. for work week visits. I manage the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market, and need to be on-site for set-up and market hours. (I have great clients, who have been kind enough to support the market by accommodating my Wednesday schedule.) I can make arrangements with a colleague to sub for me on Wednesdays after 1:00 p.m. during market season or will bracket visits directly before and directly after, depending on travel-time. 

Minimum Visit Policy: For out-of-town clients, I maintain a minimum standard of two visits per calendar day for cats and small animals and three visits per day for dogs.

There can be exceptions to this policy, entirely case-by-case: 1) If I know the client well, and I am backing up a friend, neighbor, or family member who is also checking on the pet. 2) And, only with cats, if I am taking over for a previous pet sitter, and one visit a day is what the cat is used to, I may roll with one visit a day.

Reiki Services: Currently available.


A new NorthStar Pet service. Both On-Site and Distant Reiki services available. Unless otherwise requested, I schedule distant Reiki sessions for early mornings. My schedule is structured so I can accommodate in-person Reiki sessions, as needed.
