Founded in November 2010, Leah Vahrenkamp had a vision: provide people convenient, affordable, and reliable pet care from the confines of their own homes. What started with a simple the introductory letter has grown into much more than she expected.
With only one client under her belt, Leah knew her current job wouldn’t last much longer and she needed to do something. What started as a supplemental income to her office position, Leah juggled the two for the better part of the next year, and upon finally falling to a downsizing trend in her company, she had Waggin’ Tails Pet Sitting in full swing to cushion the blow. Partner Randy Brown had just finished a nearly 5 year stint in the pet service industry when Waggin’ Tails was born, and was eager to use his business acumen to help Leah forge ahead into new territories with her fledgling company. Working together since 11/2010, they have acquired well over 100 clients through strict word of mouth advertising and referrals.
If the initial idea was to provide pet care, the young upstart has blossomed into much more. Not just offering pet care, Waggin’ Tails Pet Sitting truly offers peace of mind for pet and home owners, providing professional In-Home pet siting and house sitting services that are at once convenient, affordable and discreet. No one needs to know there is an empty house while you’re traveling, therefore in the interest of privacy, Waggin’ Tails does not utilize any car magnets or wraps that might jeopardize a customer’s home. Plain clothes and unassuming vehicles in conjunction with house sitting services are provided with all pet sitting reservations. Alternating lights, shades/curtains, mail/newspaper pickup and even plant watering are all included with pet sitting services - at no additional fees. We do not like being nickel and dimed and are sure our clients don’t either. And to top it all, your pets get to stay home in their comfortable environment and you enjoy the convenience of making no extra stops while leaving or arriving from your trip while your friendly, loving pet is there to meet you when you get home.
So for your next travel experience, there’s no need to burden the neighbors or your family. Be sure to call upon Waggin’ Tails Pet Sitting and enjoy peace of mind that your home, pets and plants are being well cared for.
