Opening a pet sitting company was my destiny and my passion

When I started DFW Pet Sitting Services, I was just a pet owner who needed help.  I was a picky pet owner.  My pets were my kids.  There are a few things that are very important to me when I have to leave my pets with someone else:

  • Meeting the person who would take care of my pets
  • Knowing that the pet sitter was attentive to detail and wrote down all the instructions
  • All instructions are followed consistently
  • Low employee turnover and having the same person doing all the visits
  • A reliable pet sitter who lived in the area and who could accommodate changes in my schedule
  • Plan B for emergency backup
  • Love and care for my pets as if they were their own

So, I made the above list and started brainstorming how to deliver this to my clients.  I also had to figure out how to manage this business remotely since I couldn’t be everywhere simultaneously.  The hardest part was finding the best local pet sitters in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex.

Managing great local pet sitters is where we bring value to you

It took me 20+  years to refine my system.  I have worked with thousands of pet owners.  My managers and I actively manage 200+ local pet sitters and dog walkers.  We evolve and get better every day.  Some of my employees have been with me for over ten years!  Yes, I can say that I do know them pretty well.

The best thing we offer to our customers is a large company’s resources. While we run a large company, we manage it as a small local pet sitting business. Keeping strong connections with our clients and employees is very important to us.  We have 24/7 telephone coverage and a very effective emergency backup plan.  DFW Pet Sitting Services offers premium insurance and bonding coverage.  All services come with a money-back guarantee.  Our pet sitters are usually available to help, even on short notice. It’s an advantage living right around the corner from you.

Your pet sitter will develop a long-lasting bond with you and your pets.

We let our employees have ownership of their clients and territories. That allows them to shine at work.  They develop long-lasting bonds with their clients when they love what they do.  They work in small groups and act as each other’s backup if one has an emergency or takes a vacation. The clients that they meet become “their” clients. The well-being of the pets becomes their responsibility.

The sitters never have to worry about scheduling, getting paid, or managing pet sits. We also track their workload to prevent “burnout.”  If one schedules too many pet sits per shift, they’ll rush through the assignments. The quality will suffer. We encourage them to take time off. Their compensation is very competitive, making this job fun and attractive.

Our employees are the foundation of who we are and what we have become.  We want everyone to be happy. If the sitters value this job, our customers will be happy too.

The “Best” of both worlds

Yes, we provide “the best of both worlds” to our customers. We manage our small sub-companies separately from each other. The resources of our DFW Pet Sitting company help us be good and efficient. Regarding pet sitting, we send out a survey to each customer after pet sits have been completed. We read every one of them. We LOVE compliments, and we value suggestions and criticism.

There is never a day off.  We are constantly working on improving our work. We use very sophisticated software that tracks completed pet sits. Our IT support is also local.  If we don’t see the sitters “completing” the visits on the computer, we immediately call them. If we were to miss a visit due to something happening to a sitter, we’d know about it within hours. We are passionate about animals and proud to call ourselves Professional Pet Sitters.
