NEW SERVICE POLICY FOR NEW CUSTOMERS:
I am only accepting new customers for the following:
   (New Policy does not apply to long standing customers)
1). Boarding dogs in my home (see Doggie Vacay to left)
2). Visits to homes with indoor alarm systems / key pad alarm
      (the type that can be monitored is no problem. I'll be there on time)
   
   Visits to homes without indoor alarm systems / key pad alarms
3). Visits to homes with outdoor surveillance camera's
  
   or, camera's inside facing entrance/exit doors.
4.)  No Camera's (Like the good old days. Misty water colored memories....)  
I'm sorry, but I no longer wish to pet sit in homes with inside camera's
          ( I call it my camera phobia or perhaps just "camera shy"  READ BELOW)  

CAMERA'S!   (OY ! The Bane of My Existence )  READ NEW POLICY ABOVE
I'm getting old in chronological years perhaps but I am still physically fit enough to keep doing
what I do.  I still love working with all animals and thankfully the animals stay the same.
I started Fur Sure! Pet Sitting Service in of 2005 and never anticipated this
.  

The problem is I come from a lower tech lifestyle and this business has changed a lot due to the
rapid pace of technology. I am not a fan of indoor surveillance camera's and am changing how I
do business because of it.  At a great loss. There is nothing unscrupulous about it. There is no
underlying motive for this beyond discomfort.

In Home Surveillance simply makes me extremely uncomfortable and takes something away
from the pet interaction on a personal level.  The dynamics of my enjoyable service have
changed due to the influx of cameras, hidden or otherwise.  The feeling of being "monitored" or
"observed", especially secretively - It's just not for me.  Camera's turn me into a Robot.

I do understand that people want to protect their homes and it's just the world we now live in.
At my house we have 16 outdoor camera's!.  It's nuts. All are placed outside with posted signs.
Again, the world we now live in forces us to equip ourselves with camera's.  

I've always enjoyed my Pet Sitting business, however,  it has been a huge challenge dealing with
the "trust" issue over the years.  Honestly, it's disheartening.  
It doesn't matter if a customer has read great reviews, heard superb references or referrals.
A pervasive lack of trust is inherent and will always exist in this type of service.  
Please try to have faith in your Pet Sitter, it is our business to be honest, punctual and to
take great care of your pets.   
Untrustworthy or unreliable sitters just don't last long in business. And that is Fur Sure!   
See NEW SERVICE POLICY  for NEW CUSTOMERS above.

FREE INITIAL VISIT TO MEET YOU AND YOUR PETS

advance to the first service date, for my safety, a 2nd visit may be
requested closer to the date of service, depending on the dog(s).
This would be for visits to your home. A 2nd visit charge would
apply.

initial visit and a second visit is needed. Second Visits are charged the pet

out personal reference information.
We both have to agree on if it's the right fit or not up front.
Any reference handed out is sure to be positive as well.
People agree to be references when they have something
good to say. To see some reviews in advance,
GOOGLE: Pet Sitters in Leominster, MA.  Fur Sure Pet
Sitting will come up under a google link. Some of these
reviews are written by my references.  This is a preliminary
reference of sorts before even meeting and is a good
indication of my service. Sorry, I'm just trying to spare my
references from excess calls and to protect their privacy.
