What’s the difference between a Professional Pet Sitter, and a hobbyist or the girl next door?

At Paskapoo Pet Services, we are not your typical “animal lover”, listed on an app and pet sitting for some extra cash!

We take our job of caring for our clients’ pets so seriously that we go the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect, starting with a certification in professional pet sitting (CPPS), proper business insurance and bonding, city licenses and WCB coverage. We have the experience to handle all situations and care for your pets like no one else. We continuously receive training and guidance from Pet Sitters International and carry Pet First Aid and Pet Care certificates. Furthermore, we use specifically designed software for our complex scheduling needs to ensure we never miss a visit.

Professional Pet Sitters are accountable, reliable and caring. We are invested in our work for the long run. We’ve all heard the horror stories and we are working hard to give Professional Pet Sitters a good name.

For your peace of mind, contact Paskapoo Pet Services today!

Kathleen was so amazing with taking care of our bunny Violet for 10 days while we were on vacation. When the air quality became very poor due to wildfires in Alberta, and when the temperatures rose to where it was uncomfortable and unsafe for our bunny, without hesitation, she took our bunny to her house, to keep her safe and cool. She had our bunnies health and best interests as her top priority. She kept us in the loop every day and sent pictures that my daughter enjoyed seeing. There was a great sense of peace of mind knowing Violet was well cared for while we were away, and she went above and beyond to also continue checking on our home, even though our bunny wasnt there. Highly recommend her 💯!
