Donna T is always ready to befriend a special needs fur client. This month Donna cared for a cat named Joy from Dumont that refused to make friends and needed insulin shots. Donna insisted on spending time with Joy once the owner returned, so that she could see that she was there as a friend. Donna has such dedication to each animal that enters her life. Later that month she was scheduled for more visits while the owner was away and things were much better… she even got the cat to purr and rub on her leg!
Beth was a real team player last month. Another pet sitter needed assistance because she could not enter a home with a territorial, scared dog. She dropped everything and drove right over to help. Beth got right in and helped put the dog and our sitter at ease. Beth is always willing to help, and her love for animals never goes unnoticed!
Frank is Employee of the Month for December 2010! He continues to deliver great service. In December, Frank had 28 straight days of overnight visits for his fur pals. There is no weather too cold, nor snow too deep to keep Frank from pet sitting or dog walking for our beloved friends. He gives our doggies the daily exercise they both want and need!
Congratulations to Coco in Lyndhurst – NJ Pet Sitters Pet of the Month for December 2010! Coco, a once dog-aggressive puppy, learned to be good on her walks when she sees other dogs. Her behavior was modified through proper training from her owners, and our efforts to reinforce the correct behavior. She now goes for walks in the neighborhood like every other dog. Coco is proof that American Pit Bulls get a bad rap, as she is one smart, obedient and loving dog!
Congratulations to Oliver in Pine Brook – NJ Pet Sitters Pet of the Month for November 2010! This little guy is a real trooper! Oliver is 13 years old and has his bad days and his good days. I know he looks forward to his dog walk most of the time, because he barks by the balcony window sometimes when he sees me pull up. Most of the time he is sound asleep on the couch in his favorite spot. The past few weeks he has had some pretty bad days. He had tummy issues late one night and tried to go upstairs (hearing and sight failing) he hurt himself somehow and ended up bleeding from his front paw. His mom was so upset. A trip to the vet proved a nail had ripped from his pad/paw area and he had minor surgery to make it better. He is now sporting a blue bandage with smiley faces on it. The first day after the bandage he was carried spot to spot by his mom and myself to do his business. The next day he limped but wanted to walk around the block. Oliver is a great dog and I look forward to visiting him every day!
DONNA is the EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH FOR NOVEMBER 2010! We want to thank Donna for all of her hard-work this month. Donna always puts our clients first-she has a love and bond with each of our furry friends that I have seen first-hand. When something is needed at the last minute Donna is always ready to help-out and save the day. She is 100% all about four-legged friends in need. Donna spends her available time giving free dog walks at North Jersey animal shelters to help the pups feel special that day! She moves mountains and has a strong voice in the animal community. We are very happy to have her on our team! Thank you for being You!
Congratulations to Sadie – NJ Pet Sitters Pet of the Month for October 2010! Sadie was a little buzzing bee for Halloween and looked adorable! She is happy go-lucky, very lovable and always sits in our laps and loves to give kisses. She loves to sniff around everywhere on her dog walks!
