Local Pet Sitter Solves Dilemma for Pet Owners
(this article appeared in the Newark Voice of Busines newspaper)
Justine Schroeder has seen it all. Lonely, stir-crazy dogs who chew everything in sight. Anxious, nervous cats who claw the draperies.
“Most people become pet owners because of their love of animals,” says Justine Schroeder, founder of 3A Pet Sitting. “Unfortunately, the fast pace of daily life often interferes with the contented relationship between owners and pets. I created 3A Pet Sitting to put things back in balance for pets and their owners.”
According to CBS News/The Early Show, pet owners are increasingly turning to professional in-your-home pet sitters to provide proper care for animals during long work days or while they are away for business travel, vacation, emergency, or even honeymoons.
“What a difference from how things used to be around here,” observes satisfied customer Dagny L. “My job requires that I travel frequently. I was worried about neglecting my dog, and he was beginning to show evidence of the stress. Even though I arranged for a neighbor to feed him, he wasn’t eating. He was chewing up my shoes, and he clung to me like plastic wrap whenever I was home. The best decision I ever made was to hire 3A Pet Sitting.”
Now when clients come home late at night from a trip or a long day at work, they find everything in order. The pets are clean, fed, and exercised. They haven’t been up to any mischief—no chewed up shoes or clawed draperies, and no new holes dug under the fence. The litter box is clean. The yard has been “pooper scooped.” Cages are clean and stocked with fresh food and water. Mail and newspapers are on the counter. Trash cans have been returned from the curb, and there’s a light on in the entry hall.
A lifelong pet owner herself, Justine Schroeder started 3A Pet Sitting out of concern for animals and a desire to provide superior in-home pet care that is licensed, bonded, insured, and effortless for the client to book. She has been a professional pet sitter for three years and is certified by the American Red Cross in Pet First Aid and CPR. She is a member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS), Pet Sitters International (PSI), and Professional United Pet Sitters (PUPS), and she is affiliated with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASCPA).
“It’s a win-win,” observes Schroeder. “The pets are cared for at home, the environment they know best. They get attention while their owners are away, they thrive on familiar diet and routine, and they escape the stress of staying in an unfamiliar place, such as a boarding kennel. Owners get the peace of mind that comes from providing their beloved pets the best care possible. What’s more, they get the security of a lived-in appearance for their homes. We bring in newspapers and mail, water plants, and turn lights on and off if they like.”
