I have two 80 lb female dogs with opposite personalities. Abigail is 7 years old. She has several congenital anomalies which include one functioning eye, one functioning kidney, and an enlarged heart. Grace is a hyperactive 4 year old who was a rescue that was deemed unadoptable. For those reasons, the 'girls' have always traveled with me. However, I recently have a new little girl in my life, my niece, who lives two hours away. I made the decision not to take my dogs to her home because of the chaos and hair that follow them. I was new to Knightdale area and had no one that I could trust in my home and trust to care for them. I've never used a pet sitter and was skeptical, but thought it was worth a try. I interviewed two area pet sitters and was simply not comfortable. When I had almost given up hope, A-Pet Care from Sleep-Eas-ZZ (Knightdale NC) came into my life. When the owners arrived at my home, they were professional and organized. Jean, who services the Knightdale area, also arrived and I was immediately at ease. She was anxious to meet my girls. Although it was only their first meeting, she was firm enough to control their behavior, but showed such respect for them. It was obvious to me that Jean had a great understanding of dog behavior and an unconditional love for animals.
I will admit that I was very nervous the first time I traveled out of town for the weekend. Jean understood my motherly concern and called me each day to let me know that all was well. When I returned, Jean had straightened the doggie blankets, put my mail on the counter, and left me a note describing the weekend.
My dogs are far from perfect and have offered her challenges from time to time, but Jean is very knowledgeable and confident. I don't question her abilities.
Jean came into our lives almost one year ago. She pet sits for me once a month on average to allow me to visit my family. She loves my girls like I love my girls. She is a rare and wonderful person. Jean is such a blessing to my special family.
Warm regards, Hope
