Why do I LOVE working for A Pause for Paws, Inc.?

The pets; the shy dog that warms up after a few dog walks, the joy in watching puppies grow, giving cats the cuddles they need when their family is out of town, the dog that is so excited to see you that they race around the house at top speed or wag their tail so fast you think it may fall off, its giving a family with multiple pets the security they need to take that much needed vacation, and the older dog that needs a little fresh air and exercise, of which I benefit also. Those are the reasons I love working for APP.

Why did I start A Pause for Paws, Inc.?

I have always wanted to be self employed and work with animals.  Pet Sitting is the perfect career to combine both of my passions.  Once I got started, I wanted to help as many pets as possible stay home and be comfortable when their pet parents have to be away.  That is a stressful thing and I can make it fun and relaxing for all types of pets!  I also love giving part-time jobs to people who LOVE animals and have a genuine caring spirit to those that need it most.
