Each and every one of the pet sitters listed below are INCREDIBLE!!! They have ALL been through a comprehensive background check and have proven to be honest, dependable and worthy of my trust and yours. Every pet sitter with Nana's Pet Sitting has completed the 8-hour extensive PET TECH PetSaver class, which includes Pet Care, Pet First Aid & CPR training. This is a two year training certificate that each pet sitter rewnews annually as an extra precaution. Every sitter owns, loves and cares for their own pets and is anxious to meet and care for yours! We have our own set of training procedures and standards in place that are followed 100%. After every visit with your pets, a note will be left to explain everything that was accomplished and completed by your pets and your pet sitter. After every visit, I get a text indicating that the visit has been completed as planned. As you can see, we think we have a very effective system in place for the safety and comfort of you, your home and your pets!
