Everyone on the 2 Paws up Inc pet sitting team is dedicated to you our clients!
Our team of professional pet sitters is not just picking up pet sitting jobs here and there. Each team member is an employee who goes through extensive training before entering your home and caring for your pets. Your team pet sitter continues to receive continuing education through fetchfind with weekly online training that comes to their inbox every Friday.
For an extra layer of protection, every client is assigned a primary pet sitter, and a backup pet sitter. If there is not enough time for you to meet both, rest assured the primary pet sitter will be sure the backup pet sitter provides the same loving protection to your pets and home.
We thrive on the relationships we build. These are just a few reasons we invest in employees for our team, and we can avoid the limitations of hiring a team of sub contractors also know as independent contractors. Each professional pet sitter goes through a thorough screening and background checks before joining the team.
