These days pets have become like children in our lives. I know mine are! When I moved into my house I designated one of the spare bedrooms solely to my dogs. Apparently, I had time on my hands as I created a safe haven for my dogs with crates and cushy beds, toys, pictures and even wall art! I painted them a dog house, bones and paw prints on the ceiling.
I thought I would share some photos in case you want to be inspired to do the same! :) You can share your photos of creative dog ideas on our Facebook. Www.Facebook.com/PeeshsPets

Since we have the new Peesh's Pets Mobile we've been shopping for the proper accessories to go along with it. We especially like Kurgo Products. Car seat covers do not just come in plain colors anymore. No. They have created fun, unique and trendy patterns to fit every customer's personality.
You can find items like these at www.kurgostore.com
In other news, I wanted to personally share my feelings on having to say "goodbye" to great clients...
I provide a service to all types of families with all types of animals. Peesh's Pets is a pet sitting business that I have built and run in a professional manner but I just can't help but get attached to each furry, feathered or finned client. When the time comes to say "goodbye" to a client, whatever the circumstance may be (families move, vacations end, pets grow up), it's almost like losing a great friend.
Some say that I have to separate myself as this is just a business but how can I completely shut myself off to animals that completely trust, love and want to do right by me? If having no feelings about losing a client is the way to go then I guess that makes my business unique. If you want a pet sitter who genuinely cares for your pets contact us at www.peeshspets.com we always have the best interest of the pets in mind!
I can't express enough how much I adore my Peesh's Pets family. Without them I would not have met such great pets and families and would not have the most amazing job EVER!! Thank you for making my job one of the loves of my life!

Most Pet sitters work outside during all of the New England seasons. Fall is my favorite! This pond is on my way to my Boxer client, Otis. I love walking dogs and taking a minute to check out the beautiful views! Peesh's Pets services the towns of Goffstown, Manchester, Bedford, Weare, New Boston, Dunbarton, Amherst, & Hooksett. I've seen so many great things in nature on my trips to pet sit. I am so lucky to have my own professional pet sitting business!!
P.s. we are working on a few new projects...you'll be seeing some exciting changes soon!!

Even when we are "off the clock" animals flock to us! As I babysit for friends of mine, their 3 cats and dog keep me company. Here is Scout sleeping on my shoulder! I had to watch the Red Sox game in the reflection of the window to not disturb the sleeping beauty. Peesh's Pets is always happy to be in the company of all animals :)

I am always amazed by the number of "Thank You's" I get for dog walking and/or pet sitting my client's pets. The little things like the gift of cupcakes for working a visit on my day off is so heartwarming! The generosity on a daily basis makes me smile. Not only do I have the best job in he world I have the best customers in the world!

We love adding new furry friends to our crew! It's especially nice to get a puppy client every once in a while. You know why? I get to visit, play and be goofy with him/her as if they were my own. I get my "puppy fix" in without actually having to own one. My job is fantastic!! Im like the cool auntie who comes to spoil them on a regular basis. Yes, yes I have to enforce rules and training sometimes but there is never a time when a dog is unhappy to see me! Not bragging...just sayin...:)
In other news...my new logo is here! Stay tuned for the reveal!!

With temps in the high 90's this week Peesh's Pets is advising pet owners to keep your furry friends inside. This extreme heat can easily cause blistered paws and dehydration.
We have been keeping the fun and playtime indoors (with A/C!) during our visits! It is our goal to keep our clients safe, happy and healthy!!
*PLEASE* if you see an animal in distress call the police immediately! Animals left inside a hot vehicle need help as temperatures almost double without air conditioning. Any four legged loves that do not have adequate shelter and water also need prompt police action.
Just imagine being left outside with a winter jacket on this week....that's how our pets feel. Too hot!!...so stay cool :)

We hope everyone has a Happy and safe 4th!
We'd like to remind pet owners that fireworks can be loud and scary for our furry friends. Be sure to accommodate to your pets needs during this holiday!
Tips for a safe Paw-liday....
1.) Keep pets leashed. Loud noises can make them run for cover!
2.) Put on a radio or TV to drown out any background noises. "Through A Dog's Ear" is especially made to calm or soothe an anxious pet. In addition, a Thundershirt can also calm pet's noise apprehension.
3.) Over the counter medication and supplements, such as Melatonin or Benadryl, can be useful in curbing a pet's anxiety to loud noises. Always consult your vet when using any medication or supplements.
4.) If having a party, use precaution as doors and windows may be opening often with the comings and goings of guests. We don't want our 4 legged loves to slip out a door or break through any screens.
5.) Keep your cool and hydrated! Leave out plenty of water, turn on fans and air conditioners, and keep sensitive paws off hot asphalt. Make pupcicles! Freeze dog treats and toys in water for a cool summertime fun!! It will keep them entertained and hydrated!
Thank you for your business! We're always happy to care for your pets!!

Saying "see you later" is one of the hardest things to do in my job. When summer comes Peesh's Pets lose some clients, like Otis here, as owners take the summer off. Yay! For them but sad for us. We become so accustomed to our daily routines and get attached to our clients. That's how I know I love my job and my clients! :)
This week one of my customers said, "you forgot to take your check today." My reply, "I guess this just proves I'm not in it for the money!" You want a great professional pet sitter to care, love and respect your pets? Look no further...Contact us!

No, I do not take care of these geese but they do seem to wait for me so they can safely cross the road. For the past week and a half 3 sets of mama and daddy geese with their babies have crossed the road in front of my car. Maybe they know the pet sitter will stop for them? :) I've traveled this road to pet sit in Weare, NH at different times during the week. Everyday they cross. Last Tuesday they were trying to get their babies to jump in the pond. So cute! These little acts of nature make me thankful I work in beautiful New Hampshire!!

Today I got the pleasure of pet sitting for my clients Luke (yellow lab) and his nephew Coal (black lab). These two are not from the same litter or breeder but they sure do act like it! They chase each other, wrestle, play like they've known each other from before birth. Dog/animal behavior has always fascinated me. I could sit and watch animals interact all day. These two are the perfect specimens!

Animals, just like humans, get sick. It was my duty to bring my client, Diego, to the emergency vet while in my care. He had developed a lump on his hip that grew 3x its size in 3 days. I spoke with his owner and we made the decision to bring him in as he would not eat or walk up and down the stairs. While at the vet, the doctor gave us horrible news. Diego had a sarcoma which is a cancer that cannot be treated. I then had to relay this devastating news to his mom.
I brought this sweet boy home to rest and administered medication that the doctor said would make him comfortable. I waited with him overnight until his mom arrived at 5am the next morning. She immediately knew that something was wrong as I was not scheduled to stay overnight. I smiled and gave her the good news first - his blood test came back normal and he could handle the prescribed medications. Then came the part I was dreading. I explained everything in detail making sure to leave nothing out. I'm not sure how much she heard after the shock of hearing the word "cancer."
I hugged my client and apologized for being the bearer of bad news. In turn, she apologized for my having to deal with this situation. I wanted to take him even if it meant bad news. Diego was suffering and I couldn't let that go on in my care.
I'll never forget that night. Someone said to me, "that's the difference of being a professional pet sitter. You are the caretaker and a shoulder to lean on." I really do love all my clients as if they were my own. I wouldn't trade any job for this one even during the hard times.

I love my clients! It's so funny that just like humans animals can have such different personalities too. Take Heidi for example. She is 120lbs of pure Saint Bernard. Although Heidi's body may be massive she is one big softy! Afraid of her own shadow, barks at strangers wagging her tail then runs away and stears clear of cats. On the other hand, she thinks she's the boss of the family! With her two legged family members she is the queen bee. There should be one in every household! :)

Although people complain about snow...traveling, walking, shoveling, it's so very pretty and peaceful in the morning. Lilly and I agree :) great walk with great company! We stopped along the way to chase snowballs and jump in and out of the snow banks. Such an amazingly fun girl!
Saturday, February 9, 2013
Ok so my dog's name is Roxy not waldo but can you find her? :) she loves the snow and jumped right in! *note the snow is almost up to my waist* We've gotten 24+ inches here in Goffstown. Been snow blowing for 2 hours now and it's still comin down. It's a snow day for Peesh's Pets although it'd be awfully cute to see all my clients in the snow!

Meet Atticus! This 5 yr old lab mix is quite shy at first but with lots of treats, reassurance and TLC he is a great Peesh's Pets client. Atticus' brother, Sirus (missing from photo), is also a big love. He is a double pawed Siamese with tan/brown/black coloring who loves attention....on his own terms :) Sirus follows Atticus where ever he goes but knows his place when there are dog bones involved! Welcome to our family, boys!

I've noticed that my dog clients paws are really sensitive to the cold, pads are cracking, and de-icing salt is stinging. This product was recommended by a great friend of mine and she swears by it! It's called Musher's Secret. It's a wax that you put on the pads of dog paws which keeps them from soaking in salts and cold snow. You can find it online or at a Tractor Supply store near you. Visit musherssecret.net for more information!

I have and had amazing clients. The animals I care for really become a part of my family. Every visit is a treat with lots of fun and care! I know that I am doing my job to the best of my ability when all of the animals I care for are happy each and every visit. Creating this business is the best thing I've ever done!
