Choices Pet Sitters - Manager

Individualized professional pet care has been my passion (and career) for many years. I was raised with dogs, cats, hamsters, ducks, turtles, a rabbit, a freshwater fish tank, and a horse while growing up in my parent's home. I was happily one of the lucky students who got to bring the class Guinea Pig home one weekend. (They are nocturnal animals in case you didn't know so I got no sleep that weekend for many reasons.) And I even raised Grand Champion White Leghorn chickens in 4-H! But unlike most hobby pet sitters I don't count these years as part of my experience. Those years are just an added bonus because I know that pets in my home behave differently than your pets. I know this because I have been in hundreds of homes and have experienced animal behavior first-hand. 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.

 

Certified Professional Pet Sitter®

Hi there! I’m Linda, one of the 1st twenty Fear Free® Certified Professionals in Georgia and 1 of 331 Fear Free® Level 3 Certified Professionals in the world! I am also a non-smoking, bonded and insured Certified Professional Pet Sitter® who is trained in the Pet Tech® PetSaver course.

Raised with dogs, cats, hamsters, ducks, and a horse while growing up in my parent’s home, pets have always been my passion. So much so that my 4-H White Leghorn chickens won Grand Champion in the North Georgia State Fair one year after I lovingly “hand washed” them for success! Several of my indoor kitties have lived over 14+ years, giving me experience administering oral medicines, insulin injections, and sub-q fluids. But more importantly than just caring for my own pets I have over 15 years of PAID business experience taking care of other people’s pets in their homes!

As Manager of Choices Pet Sitters, I have grown the company into a Professional In-Home Pet Care / Dog Walking Company with a level of service that far surpasses hobby pet sitters simply looking for a side job to supplement their income. Choices Pet Sitters has been providing respectful, personalized, and extremely professional In-Home Pet Care and Mini-Farm sitting in Pickens and North Cherokee Counties in Georgia since 2005. Bent Tree and Big Canoe pets love us!

My mission

To give each individual pet a clean, safe environment while it is at home and the pet parents are away.  I focus on quality care and attention to detail that includes cleanliness in your pet’s feeding and living areas. (If I wouldn’t eat out of their dish, then they won’t either.)

To take the time to listen to you and your pets. I take the time to get to know your pet and their unique personalities while keeping in touch with you daily (if you choose) to let you know what fun your furry “children” are having. I want to make your pets are as safe and comfortable as possible.

To give you the best pet care experience possible. I want to do my best to be sure you have the best care, best response time, and best communication in the industry when I care for your pets.

For your protection - Be sure to check all Pet Sitter credentials
Not all sitters have actually acquired or have recently updated their credentials.
