​​​​​​​​​​Not much was known about this offbeat little trade 1994 in Meridian, Eagle and Boise, when pet owners were still patronizing boarding facilities. Having always pre-furred the company of animals to humans, my inspiration could not have been more clear... I was about to venture into 'professionally' caring for pets in their OWN HOME!

Hmm-mm... why not?  Pets then would NOT endure that normal stress about their family dropping them off to live in a noisy commune with confined space, feeling unsure about their family's' return.  Now at home they could enjoy their familiar comforts, and be rid of all that inconvenience. WHAT A PERFECT MATCH!  They will be happy staying at home, and I, REALLY happy being with them! Clearly my idea didn't happen overnight; but when word did get out, PawsWatch took off in a BIG way!  I had found my calling and never looked back! :)

Although essential to establish an LLC business with licensing and insurance, I was adamant about NO employees. An easy choice! My intentions were not about spending time teaching and overseeing the coming and going of employees who most likely would not satisfy my expectations of really genuine pet care.  After all, I'd founded PawsWatch with intentions not only for superior pet sitting, but also to enjoy caring for many animals simply all to myself! So that is exactly how I've kept it these 24 years... founder, owner, caregiver... and delighting in every minute of it!

Since the birth of PawsWatch Pet Sitting, so many have followed; although a bit differently... either to grow and branch into a big business, or treat as a hobby to make a few extra bucks; both losing sight of 'PERSONALIZED' pet care.  I am proud to boast of continuing it MY way, reaping such lovely rewards from genuine one-on-one pet nurturing, which is typically what a pet craves in your absence.

just plain ol' fashioned pet love!

As well as 24 professional years experience, I am a lifelong pet owner, and pet admirer.  And now... very fortunate to have many satisfied and grateful clients. You can feel most confident in looking no further.
