"Any man who does not like dogs and want them about does not deserve to be in the White House."
- Calvin Coolidge
My name is Vickie Gallo-Eddy, and this is our dog Scout! That's long-time and lovable client "also named Scout" in the upper righthand corner above - cute or what? In 2002 I started my business as an accredited and bonded pet sitter here in the Houston Heights, our neighborhood since 1994. Early on I decided to focus on servicing the Heights and surrounding area to ensure my clients the comfort and convenience of knowing that I am within easy proximity. Our business is family owned and run and we want to take care of your pet(s) while you are out of town, either on vacation or away for business. Or maybe you feel that because of the demands posed by your busy life schedule that you would simply like your pet(s) to have a middle of the day walk or some extra daily attention. I’m sure they would appreciate it!
In 2010, my husband, Bob, a graphic artist/designer ended a fourteen year career at Johnson Space Center to join me full time, utilizing his organizational skills as co-manager, and calm, quiet demeanor as primary dog walker. And of course, I still call on him for the occasional promotional design work! Although he will deny it, he is also the worst spoiler and indulger of our own, and guest pets…
When you could turn to friends, neighbors or a traditional boarding facility? According to the American Humane Society, allowing your pet to continue its familiar routine of diet and exercise in his or her home environment, along with the personal attention, minimizes the trauma of your absence and the stress of having to be transported for an extended stay in a confined and strange place. It also eliminates their exposure to the possible illnesses and infestations of other pets.
In addition, you no longer have the inconvenience of transporting your pet or having to impose on
family, friends or neighbors. The at-home pet care solution can be a relief to you and all your pets! During your absence, we also offer additional services - watering potted plants (outdoor watering negotiable), bringing in the mail, rotation of lights, etc - and our presence will act as a crime-deterrent measure.
