About Coastside Pets

Coastside Pets is a well-respected pet-sitting company

I founded Coastside Pets in 1998 and have been a professional pet care provider ever since. It was my goal to do something that I am truly passionate about and love. An important part of the covenant we have with our animal friends is that it is our job to protect them and to take care of their needs. I find great satisfaction in providing superior pet care services, giving clients the peace of mind knowing their companions are well taken care of while they are away.

I enjoy working with all animals. Not a day goes by where I am not amused with their comedy routines. At times animals can seem quite human. Not only do I love working with animals but I love the relationships that develop with their owners. I am truly blessed to have so many friends.

I have trusted Coastside Pets with my dog care for the last 10 years. Every time that I left home, I knew that my dogs got the attention and care that they needed. With my newest puppy, I needed daily dog walks. As he is a border collie/Aussie he needs a lot of activity and stimulation. He certainly gets that and more from the care givers at P.E.T.S. Before he is picked up each day, he waits anxiously for his "walker" to come and get him. As soon as the door opens, he jumps up with so much excitement. When he is returned, he is calm, happy and fully stimulated. I have noticed that my dog is much more socialized and obedient since I started using Coastside Pets for daily dog care. I can't say enough good things about the people at Coastside Pets, except that I am glad to have them in my doggie's life. And, he is too.
