Beyond Pet Sitting

 

I want to show people how to make the most of their relationship with their pets so that both human and animal thrive together.” – JP

 

Our passion for animals began in our childhood and has only expanded since. Some people want someone to just let the dog out, or take them for the occasional walk, check-in on the cat while on vacation – and we do all of that. But there are also people who, like me, trust no one to watch their beloved pets and are seeking a knowledgeable, kind, loving person whom their pet loves and whom they can trust with their pets’ care. We want to be that person for them. And more often we meet people who are just overwhelmed because they are busy, they work late, are sick or disabled, had a baby, had two babies, got divorced, etc. and they need a helping hand to be able to provide the best life for their pets - that’s what we want to be. Let us help you provide the proper care for your pet, no matter your situation. If you have care questions, send us a message and we will do our best to answer any questions you might have – and if we don’t know the answer, we will connect you with someone who does.

We are pet owners too .

* Certified Avian Specialist

* Former Veterinary Assistant

* 15+ Years Experience as a Pet Sitter

* Former Animal Care & Training Intern at The Palm Beach Zoo

* Animal Trainer

* Owner of J & W Pets


Animal care experience includes dogs, cats, parrots, and other exotics.

With over 15 years of animal care and rescue experience, Jennifer's passion for animals began as a young child chasing chickens and hugging goats in her childhood farm home in Cuba. After begging for a Macaw as a child, she was eventually entrusted, instead, with the care of a beautiful Chow chow mix dog, Rinty. It was bonding with that large, rambunctious puppy that led to her interest in dog training. Several years later, the hospitalization of her sick Quaker parrot sparked an interest in animal medicine and nutrition. This led Jennifer to complete an internship at the Palm Beach Zoo to broaden her knowledge of husbandry and animal training. Currently, Jennifer is working towards becoming a certified dog trainer.

"I strongly believe we have an obligation to provide the best care possible for the animals we choose to bring into our lives. We all fall short because we're not experts and even experts don't always agree, but it's our responsibility to educate ourselves on the best standard of care and provide that for the animals we keep. Sadly many of us acquire animals with the best intentions but not the right information. Sure, I could have chosen the path of a veterinarian, a biologist, or a zoologist and all those really appealed to me, but they would take time & resources I rather dedicate to my family (which includes my pets). Instead I get to train a bird who was deemed a lost cause, walk a dog for someone who works long hours, help to potty train a puppy, or give stress-free nail trims. I want to show people how to make the most of their relationship with their beloved pets so that both human and animal thrive together. Often that is done through training - a common language between us and the animal kingdom."  - Jennifer P.

You've met cat people? Winsly is a cat guy. He has a way with cats and he prefers them. He lovingly recalls the cats that have come into his life that have left a lasting impression. In particular, he bonded with a cat name Daisy. Daisy was a great companion with plenty of character and not phased by much. Unfortunately, he was also a lover of the outdoors and one day did not return. For this reason, he encourages people to keep pet cats indoors, and keep them mentally and physically stimulated by engaging them in play. Winsly also has an appreciation for dogs and their loyal, fun-loving qualities. He's helped train several of our family dogs over the years and is an absolute natural. He implements positive reinforcement techniques with great success. Winsly also enjoys getting to know and learning about all other animals. In his spare time he likes to play a good game of Billiards.

"Man, take your dogs for a walk, play with them. Just spend time with your pets. They are home all day waiting for us to get home and it's not their fault we are tired from working all day. They don't live that long (except for parrots!) so we should enjoy them while we can."  - Winsly P.

F.A.Q.s
 

Do I get to meet my dog walker/pet sitter in advance?

Before your first booked service, you will meet with Jennifer, Pet Sitter & Owner of the company. At  this meeting, we collect & document all care instructions, and vet records if necessary as well as meet your pet. Jennifer will be the primary pet sitter, but in the case that a different sitter will be providing any part of the service, it is not required that you meet them, unless you prefer to do so. In the case of a scheduled sitter that will be covering all or part of the service, in order to fairly compensate the sitter for their time, we'd schedule a regular visit for a time when you'll be home. If an unscheduled sitter needs to step in to cover aservice, there is usually no opportunity for the client to meet the sitter that fills in. Please keep in mind that any sitter working for our company is fully vetted and trained and that in the case that a scheduled sitter is unable to make a visit, it is for your pet's benefit that someone fill in A.S.A.P. and we will inform you of this as it happens.

 

What is your cancellation/rescheduling policy?

Boarding: Full refund if cancelled by 12 noon, 7 days before the scheduled booking. If booking is cancelled after 12 noon, 7 days before the scheduled booking, 50% is refunded for the first 7 days of the booking. (Ex: If 4-week booking is cancelled after 12 noon, 7 days before the stay begins, the pet owner will only be charged 50% for the first 7 days and will get a full refund for the remaining 3 weeks.) Dog Walking/Drop-In Visits: Full refund if cancelled by 12 noon, one day before the scheduled visit. If booking is cancelled after 12 noon, one day before the scheduled visit, 50% is refunded for the first 7 days of the booking. (Ex: If 4-week booking is cancelled after 12 noon, 7 days before the stay begins, the pet owner will only be charged 50% for the first 7 days and will get a full refund for the remaining 3 weeks.)

*We make exceptions - It is not fair to make you pay if you got sick or had an emergency come up. Please show proof of your cancelled plans and we will give you a full refund. These exceptions are at our discretion.
