Helpful Hints

Helpful Hints & Tips

1. Plan ahead – Make reservations as soon as possible. Dates fill up fast especially around the holidays. Letting us know you’ll need us allows us to get you on our schedule and ensures that your pet will get the attention they need.

2. Make sure to fill out all paperwork completely and with as much detail as possible. Everything we need to know about your pet and home is covered in our paperwork and serves as a reference for us while you are away.

3. Make sure to fill out a separate pet information sheet for each pet that will be in the house while you’re away. Even if we are just walking your dog while you’re at work, we need to know about the animals in the house so that no accident occurs or in case of emergency.

4.  If you have friends or neighbors with a watchful eye, or a neighborhood watch, you may want to let them know that we will be coming and going from your home while you are way (out of town or during the workday). We will be happy to supply business cards you can give to them in case they need to reach us.

5. Make sure to have plenty of food, treats, medication, litter, etc. on hand to last the length of your trip and possibly a few days beyond.

6. Have cleaning supplies (paper towels, carpet spot cleaner, trash bags, etc.) readily available. Have towels handy for wiping off paws in the event of rainy days or drying avid swimmers.  Have a broom and dustpan and/or a hand vacuum nearby for cleaning out/around litter boxes.

7. Make sure to notate your trash days on the paperwork so that we can take them to the curb on the appropriate day.

8. Remember to alert us to any authorized visitors while you’re away, such as out-of-town guests, business assistants or colleagues that will need to access your home. Also if there has been a change in service staff such as housekeepers, pool maintenance, lawn care etc.

9. Let us know as soon as possible of any changes to your arrival or departure so that we may adjust our schedule accordingly.

10. Since you’re free to travel on your own schedule, sending us a text or email that you have left will alert us that our services have begun and ensure that your pets are not alone too long.

11.  When arriving home from a trip, please call, email or text us to let us know that you arrived safely. This is how we know our service is complete.

Having Tracy as my pet sitter is the best decision we ever made!

- John & Renee W.

When my dog Haley was diagnosed with diabetes I was so afraid to take her home where I would have to give her insulin injections. My vet recommended I call Tracy. She could have easily taken advantage of my situation but instead she came to my home and taught me how to give the injections easily. After several visits both Haley and I are vey relaxed when it’s time for her injections.

My vet recommended Tracy to me when my dog Lily became very ill and needed more care than I thought I could handle. Tracy was very patient with me and taught me to care for Lily at home without being so afraid.

Tracy and her team have bailed me out of a jam more times than I can list. They have been there for me through everything from working lunches and late nights, to vacations and family emergencies. Their understanding and flexibility has proven I can count on them no matter the circumstance.

Luv My Sitter is our #1 secret to a stress free vacation!

- Joe & Kathrine H.

What a blessing. I highly recommend Tracy and the pet specialists at Luv My Sitter.

- Theresa N.

Before my veterinarian recommended us to Tracy my husband and I hadn’t seen a movie in a theater or been to dinner out in over 4 years. Vacations were absolutely out of the question due to our Mazey’s medical issues. Luv My Sitter has not only been a breath of fresh air but has given us our life back. It took a few test trips, but we are so comfortable and pleased with the care Mazey receives we truly feel like we have a new lease on life. Thanks to Tracy we are planning a vow renewal and second honeymoon. Maui here we come!

Who knew in home care could make such a difference. I have always boarded my dogs but the kennel had a waiting list the weekend my Dad passed away. My vet told me to call Tracy at Luv My Sitter. Although apprehensive of the though of people being in my home while I was away I felt I had no choice. Admittedly, I was a bit relieved they could care for the dogs. The updates, coupled with the photos and videos, were so comforting. I could see that my dogs were very content and happy. They did a great job not only caring for my pets but also preventing me from having to worry about home. I am a convert. I will continue to use Luv My Sitter whenever I need to be away.

Worth every penny and more.

I think my pets love Tracy more than me. They’re always so excited to see her and you can tell she really cares about them. I have had several pet sitters in the past and Tracy is by far the best. So glad my vet recommended her.

Tracy saved my skin! A few years back my wife and I were having Tracy stay at our house with our dogs while we attended our sons wedding in Virginia. It was during the wedding rehearsal that my troubles began. I had forgotten the rings, not in the room but at home, in my safe. I swallowed deeply tried to cover my panic. At my first opportunity I excused myself and immediately called Tracy. Fortunately, she was able to retrieve the rings from the safe, race to the Fed Ex station (despite my directions) before they closed and get them over-nighted to me. I can not tell you how relieved I was when the package arrived 2 hours before the ceremony. We will never board our dogs again.

I don’t have any animals but I do use Tracy as a house sitter and let me tell you what, it has been worth every penny. This summer while we were abroad Tracy was coming by checking on my home, picking up the paper, bringing in the mail watering my plants, that sort of thing. On the fourth day of our 10 day trip Tracy noticed our automatically sprinkler was leaking water. Austin was in the midst of strict water restrictions at the time so she called me and let me know there was a problem. I told her where to find the number to the sprinkler guy and she called him and had it repaired before we returned. I can’t imagine what my water bill would have been when I go t back not to mention the fines I would have received from the city. My advice to anyone going out of town for any length time, call her! You never know what might happen.

My vet recommended Tracy to me. I have a 9 year old Samoyed, that I call Nonie who has a pretty severe seizure disorder. Before Nonie was diagnosed with her disorder I was a very active person and for awhile nothing changed. Gradually my schedule became more and more restrictive due to Nonie’s changing medication schedule. Finally when she began to needs medication for times a day I found myself planning my life around Nonie. I love her but my boss was beginning to feel my absence in the afternoon and at times when he needed me to work late. Although I hadn’t really thought much about it until then, I missed my active life too. That’s when I called Tracy. She was able to come by in the afternoon and on occasion at night to give Nonie her medication so that I didn’t have to leave work. Also with Tracy’s help I have been able to resume girl’s night out. I drink a few less drinks to pay for it but I try not to look at that as a bad thing.

I will never book late again! I had known for weeks I was going out of town but procrastinated letting Tracy know my plans. When I finally got around to calling she informed me she was booked. NO THIS CANT BE! She said she would take a look at the schedule and see if there was anything she could rearrange. That was the longest hour of my life. Its not that I didn’t have other options, its just that when Tracy is caring for my pets I notice I am more relaxed and I don’t feel the need to worry. She keeps me in the loop and I am able to enjoy my time away. I sighed a huge sigh of relief when she was able to book me and all was well.

I really don’t want to give away my secret but Tracy is the best pet sitter I have ever had. She is professional, reliable, knowledgeable and you can really tell she loves animals.
