Sadly it was necessary to board our Golden Retrievers at a local kennel thought to be reputable, and even as I toured through the facility it seemed suitable. Goldens are happy about everything; yet when we returned unexpectedly my eyes welled-up to see the filth in the area where they were housed. Both pups were lethargic and unclean, and once home they could not get enough water. I would NEVER ever do that to them again! Unfortunately this boarding facility is still doing business in Meridian, well covering up several incidents.
It was at that moment I knew I had to do something for the sake of other pets, and although not much was known about this offbeat little trade 1994 in our area my inspiration could not have been clearer! Having always preferred the company of animals to humans, I was happily about to venture into 'professionally' caring for pets in their THEIR OWN HOME!
FINALLY... A CHOICE FOR PET OWNERS
... At home pets would NOT endure drop-off stress to live at a busy commune feeling unsure if family will return.
... Pet parents would be free of inconvenience.
... Caring for pets in their familiar comforts would be my dream... WHAT A PERFECT MATCH!!
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! I would establish a local LLC business with no employees since my intentions were not about spending time overseeing others who most likely would not satisfy my expectations. After all, I'd founded PawsWatch not only to set in motion superior pet sitting, but to enjoy caring for pets all to myself!
Founder, Owner, Caregiver...
Still delighting in every minute of it! Since the 1994 birth of PawsWatch Pet Sitting, many have followed suit, but in a less pet-focused means either with a big-business goal, or as a hobby sideline. Most losing sight of PERSONALIZED professional pet care. I feel proud to boast of continuing it MY WAY reaping the loveliest of rewards in keeping it genuine... pet nurturing one-on-one!
Meet My Loved Furs, Present and Now Resting
'BEAUCOUP' - obvious name for a beautiful Tortie of many colors! Often crossing her paws like a lady, she was tiny and confident and full of personality, demanding "ma-ma" to get my attention! She ruled the roost of siblings, flitting here and there talking to them every step of the way!
