About us:

My name is, Shea and I am the owner of, Paw Prints For Life. I have been caring for pets my entire life. I have chosen pet sitting as a career because of my deep love for animals of all kinds. My main belief is that pets are truly members of the family, and they should be treated as such. I have four dogs of my own: two boxers, Bruno and Grace, and two shih tzus, Maddie and Kallie.  They are truly like my children. I am a wife to my wonderful husband, Karl, and a loving mother to four children: Emilie, 20, Corry, 18, Breanna, 16, and Karlie is 9. They too are very much a BIG part of Paw Prints For Life!

I started Paw Prints For Life, when we had a bad experience with a dog boarding kennel. I looked for days trying to find the right kennel for our Neapolitan Mastiff so, we could go out of town. Thinking I had found the right one, I boarded him for four days. We had to pay extra for play time, extra for outside walks, extra for a dog bed in his kennel, and extra for them to give my dog his joint pills. When we returned, it looked as if my dog had been traumatized - he was very sad. He smelled very bad, and looked as if he had lost some weight, too.  The next day I noticed that he would not go to the bathroom, so I took him to the vet and found out he had gotten a UTI.  Not fun at all.  With that said, I thought to myself, I can not be the only person that has had a bad experience with a dog kennel. I then decided to open my very own pet sitting business. I went in with the mindset that I would truly treat other people's pets as though they were my own, and NOT charge for all the extras that kennels charge.  Now, I know that not all kennels are bad, and that is not what I'm saying, but I do know that I would much rather have a pet sitter, or board my dogs in an in-home setting than an actual dog kennel.

How will my keys be handled?
I will obtain a copy of your house keys upon contracting our services. I highly recommend leaving your keys with me in case emergency visits are needed, or you require ongoing pet visits. I do secure ALL keys in a secure safe with no identifiable information.  Key pick up and return is outside of Initial Visit if client does not want me to keep them in a lock box.  ($5.00 key return.)

Returned Check Fee 25.00
I will accept a check, but if for any reason the check bounces, there will be a $25.00 returned check fee. Thereafter, I will not be able to take a check again from that client. It will need to be paid in cash.
