Our Pack

Everyday we wake up to a nose nudge, a paw scratching at the door and/or the jingle of a tag and we know it's time to get up. Recognizing those moments explains why we love our job and always strive to provide the best care possible. It's our priviledge to care for your pet, get to know them and personalize their care.

Walk Leaders & Cat Sitters

These wonderful people are motivated to help provide support to the Fetching Life Family and I couldn't be more excited.

To uphold my high standard and scale the quality of the company I understand that I cannot do this alone. I always knew this fact, but I wasn't sure how. You and I both know that relationships are everything and honestly this service is a stepping stone for many people in different stages of their lives. Finding people who understand that preserving those relationships that those who have come before them have established is fundamental.

My rules and priorities are really the same: be honest and timely, care about your job, always ask and respect yourself, the pet and the client's home.

Cell Phones- We carry them, the maps are extremely helpful if we are in a new neighborhood and are lost. They are the one of the reasons I can be a part of this business. What does a phone give me? The peace of mind knowing that they are safe. That I can keep in touch with them and vice versa. Confirmation messages let me know that they are running on schedule and how your pet is doing. One of the apps we use is called "Run Keeper", and it helps provide accountability.

Rules of the Cell Phone: If it must be in your hand, stop walking, look around you for other dogs and take care of what is necessary.
