The value added service we provide comes with many years of professional (paid) pet care experience. Multiple certifications requiring continuing education, and membership in many industry specific Pet Associations make us the most educated group in Jasper. Our Manager is one of the 1st twenty of Dr. Marty Becker's Fear Free Certified Professionals in Georgia and the ONLY Fear Free Professional in Pickens County.

Customized services include 30, 45, and 60 minute visits, dog walking, basic and overnight visits, and extended in-home daily visits. We do NOT provide boarding services outside your home.

We serve Pickens and North Cherokee Counties in Georgia including the cities and areas of Jasper, Talking Rock, Tate, Nelson, and NW Ball Ground for basic services. Other areas (not listed) are serviced for overnight or extended daily in-home pet sitting services only.

 

We are proudly Bonded and Insured and some of our sitters are PetTech Training trained.

About our Manager

About us: CPPS Logo

I remember my first real dog at age 5…. Looking back now I recall lots of different animals sharing my life. Through the years I have raised a stray cat or two, and have enjoyed caring for a white bunny, a hamster, a couple of small water turtles, some goldfish, prize winning chickens (from my days in 4-H), and finally a flock of American Pekin and Rouen ducks. (A note of warning….. My “flock” started with three ducklings!)

As a teenager I studied horsemanship, competed a little in horse shows, and developed a love of riding while caring for our family’s horse. I also remember bringing home the class Guinea Pig from Middle School on occasional weekends!

When I moved out of my parents house there was always a cat (or two) around. I quickly discovered that a fresh water fish tank was easy and fairly inexpensive to set up and the hum of the water pump helped me to sleep. The cats and I would stare at the fish swimming back and forth for hours! I think breeding Mollies was my biggest adventure… And watching Swordtails, Tetras, and Corydoras Catfish was a fascinating learning experience. My blue male Bettas, in separate tanks of course, were beautiful!

Now I share my home with cats, and a bird… who, by the way, loves to tell me all about his day! In addition, I also have the honor of caring for other people’s pets and mini-farms.

When I studied human psychology in college I opened myself up to observing the behavior of the pets in my household, and I have been fascinated ever since. Getting into the pet care business was natural for me as my passion for working with animals grew.

Each day I continue to learn more about different species of animal behavior through personal on-site interaction. Discovering the personalities of each pet, and seeing them blossom is a joy. Managing a staff that works diligently with me to provide the best care possible for these pets is a privilege.

 

About Us: Fear Free Certified LogoRescue Experience

Helping rescue animals get over their fear of people (if they were feral or have been abused) is not work, but instead a special journey. My passion is helping owners understand the behavior of their pets so they can live together in harmony. The relationships I have seen develop between animals and humans are memorable experiences that I will always cherish.

I love the animals I work with, enjoy the time I spend with them, and am proud to say I know a little about the personality of each pet that has graced my life.  My relationships with some of the super shy pets (who, according to the owners I was never supposed to see) are very special and ones I will remember always.

Our mission

Our mission is to provide reliable, responsible pet care based on your individual needs and best industry practices. We promise to keep your pets safe, happy, and if needed, well exercised at home.

Understanding that while some pets are fun and furry, we also realize that some are seniors requiring extra attention and patient understanding of their individual needs. We don’t discriminate based on age, sex, breed, temperament, or other factors. We will, however, let you know if we have to decline a job for personal safety reasons.

Finally, we provide professional services backed by verifiable credentials in many industry specific organizations. These organizations provide continuing education, networking opportunities, and access to professional insurance and bonding.  We’re happy to give you the information to “check us out!”
