About Us

 

Linda Beatty   

Owner/Instructor/Caregiver

As a pet owner, I know the anxiety of trusting someone else to take care of your “babies”  when you are away. It isn’t just food and water that they need; they need the reassurance that everything is OK even though their owner isn’t there. I want my pets to have the least amount of stress possible when I am away.  I want that for your pets too.

I started my business in 2008 and am pleased to say that it is the most gratifying job I have ever had.  I have a well-rounded background in BUSINESS(admin assistant, accounting, sales, marketing, facilities maintenance), EDUCATION (I was an elementary school teacher and now teach first aid/CPR classes) as well as living and working overseas for MISSIONSI have always wanted to have my own business so when circumstances lined up just right, Ask Linda Pet Sitting was born. I believe that if you get up in the morning excited to go to work, you are in the right job.  I am in the right job!

I have had great respect and empathy for animals since I was young.  I was using positive reinforcement training (but didn’t know it) with my first dog when I was just in grade school. 

 I am a  member of and active volunteer for The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) , and Pet Sitters International

I completed my NAPPS PetSitter Certification Course in 2011 and renewed it in 2015.

In 2012 I completed Instructor training for PetTech pet first aid/CPR and am offering classes on a monthly basis to pet parents and pet professionals.
