Why Hire Us

Why Should I Hire Professional Pet Care?

Peace of Mind is Priceless

We have designed every aspect of our pet sitting services with the primary goal of providing our clients with peace of mind. From obtaining the proper licensing, bonding, liability insurance, and pet care education, your ability to trust us with your home, and one of your most precious family members, is essential to what we do. And to ensure we have achieved this goal, we base our entire business operations on the Feathers and Fur Promise.

Our mission is to provide our clients with freedom, security, and peace of mind, by operating at the highest standard of professional pet care.

This how we achieve that mission on a daily basis…

Professionalism

Feathers and Fur is a professional company, not a “side” business or a hobby. Each member of our staff is experienced, qualified, background checked, insured, and bonded. We are members of the Association for Pet Sitting Excellence, and strictly adhere to the force-free standards of the Pet Professional Guild.

Exotic and Domestic Experience

Not only do we care for your dog, cat, or small companion animals, but we also have staff experienced in the care of exotic animals such as macaw parrots, pythons, bearded dragons, skinks, turtles, and even armadillos and iguanas! No pet is too large, or too uncommon for us to handle!

Competitive Rates

We understand that owning a pet can be a significant expense. We work hard to keep our costs down, and in turn, maintain modest and reasonable rates. We offer a range of price points and services that best fit your needs, and can work within all pet care budgets.

Customized Pet Care Plans

When you setup your first consultation with us, we will analyze the temperament and energy level of your pets to ensure that they are receiving the services that best fit their needs. We know that pet personalities are as wide and numerous as there are pets, and there is no one size fits all. As we get to know your pet even more, we will continually observe the results of our service and, if needed, suggest any changes that we feel will genuinely benefit them.

Communication

At Feathers and Fur, we understand that open, honest, and consistent communication is a key to building our client relationships, and we make it a continual priority. You will receive text or email updates after every visit. In addition, we will leave a detailed diary in a notebook at your home that will provide a record of each visit, and where you can also leave your sitter any special notes for that day. We will immediately address any and all behavioral or health concerns that we may see, and we will respond to any of your concerns, issues, or requests in a timely manner.

Convenience

We understand how hectic your schedule can be, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to utilize our services including scheduling daily services, vacation services, and painless billing and payments. The software we use provides our clients the ability to book visits, view and edit their current care schedules, make payments, and update their billing information.

Safety

The safety of your pet while they are in (and out) of our care is our number one priority. We never walk more than two dogs at a time, and only from the same household, so that your pets receive 100% of our undivided attention. We immediately notify our clients should any security or safety issues occur or become evident at the home. Additionally, all of our sitters typically reside within 5 miles of their assigned clients, so if emergencies do arise, we can be there right away.
