Owner, Lisa, with Blossom and Roxie
Welcome to Pick of the Litter Pet Sitting, LLC in Scottsdale, AZ – In home pet and house sitting.
I have been a pet sitter in Scottsdale, Arizona since January, 2005 and absolutely love it! Being a full time pet sitter allows me to focus all my attention on my clients and, of course, their beloved four-legged family members. If you work long hours and would like me to come by to give them a mid-day break, or if you’re going out of town and can’t take them with you, I would love to help you out. Rather than putting your pets through the stress and physical illness caused by kennels or boarding facilities, let them stay in the comfort of their own home. I will come care for your pets with the same love they would get from you. I am available for daily visits during long work days, vacation visits, and even overnight stays or live-in situations while you’re out of town. While you’re on vacation, house sitting services are included as well.
What makes me unique in Scottsdale’s growing pet sitting market is that as the owner of Pick of the Litter Pet Sitting, I also do most of the pet sitting myself. I understand that pet sitting is a very personal business; you are allowing someone into your home to care for your “children,” and you need to know you can trust that person. Many pet sitting companies have ever-changing multiple employees, so you never know who will be coming into your house. I take pride in the fact that my clients know me as their personal pet sitter and trust me completely. In the event I am not personally available to help with your pets, I have two excellent pet sitters working with me, both of whom are bonded and insured as I am, have been background checked (you can never be too safe), and in whom I have complete trust.
When I decided in 2004 to start Pick of the Litter Pet Sitting in 2005, I knew I wanted to make this my career, and my life. I took all the necessary steps to become a professional. I joined Pet Sitters International, the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS), and received my Certification through NAPPS. I am bonded and insured, and have excellent references from all my happy customers, to put your mind at ease (including a five-star rating on Yelp!). I was on the front page of the Arizona Living section in the Arizona Republic on June 25th, 2005. They did a story about my business, which you can read on the “AZ Republic Pet Sitting Article” page.
I was also interviewed for an article about “pampered dogs,” which ran September 28th, 2005. It was on the front page of the Arizona Living section as well. I was the proud owner of the adorable dog in the main picture! It was a fun and interesting article, which you can read on the “AZ Republic Designer Dogs Article” page.
In addition, AZ Foothills Magazine featured me in an article in the November, 2010 issue, entitled, “10 Ways Not to Lift a Finger,” which you can read on the “AZ Foothills Magazine Article” page.
Most recently, I was interviewed by CBS Channel 5 for an article on their website entitled, “Valley Woman Turns Passion for Pet Into Career,” which was published on October 31, 2015. I was so honored to be featured, and think the article is a fantastic representation of who I am and what my business is all about. Check it out on the CBS News Article – Pick of the Litter Pet Sitting page.
