Vacation/Out-of-Town Visits: Currently Available.

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.

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.  Cats are no different than dogs in regards to their needs of affection, touch, play, and attention; they just don't need to go outside to pee and poo!

Animal 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. Like pet sitting visits, humans do not have to be present for an in-person Reiki session.
