What kind of person does it take to be a pet sitter? A dedicated one! Our pet sitters have a real sense of commitment to be there weekends, holidays, or at any given moment in an emergency. That takes a special type of person. Ask them why they do it and they will say, "Because we love it!" They get a great deal of satisfaction from caring for your animals. And their commitment is rewarded by pets that are happy to see their pet sitters time and time again. Sit-A-Pet sitters average 8 years on the job. Our sitters are dedicated not only to the job but to the company itself.
Where has the time gone?
Hard to believe that it was 35 years ago that Debra Hollander decided that pet owners in the DC metropolitan area should have an alternative to boarding their pets or relying on friends/neighbors when they traveled ... and thus Sit-A-Pet was born, giving them peace of mind that their pet and home were in good hands while they were away.
This summer the staff got together to celebrate those 35 years and the wonderful pet sitters who have made it possible.
We look forward to serving you and your furry family members for another 35+ years!!
