Happy St. Patty’s Day!
Heidi’s Historic Home & Pet Care offers a variety of services to choose from, such as: In-Home Pet Sitting; Daily Dog Walks, Doggie Day Care & Cage-Free Dog Boarding within my home. As for my In-Home Pet Sitting services, I do not discriminate as to the kind of pets I will sit for. We specialize in All Pets Pet Sitting: Cats; Dogs; Birds; Reptiles such as Frogs, Iguanas, Turtles and Snakes; Hamsters; Gerbils; Guinea Pigs; Ferrets; Bunnies; and any other kind of pet you may have!
Our Doggie Day Care & Dog Boarding services are provided in my private home, located within the Coronado Historic District, which is just east of 7th St, between Thomas & McDowell Rd. And, speaking of my home, Please NOTE: the picture above is a general “historic home” depicted on this website & NOT my private home, as I want to keep my home private & not for all to see out there on the world wide internet.
We are ten short minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, which makes drop offs/pic ups for Dog Boarding fast and easy on your way out of town! For those of you who prefer to leave your loved ones at your home, our In-Home Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Service is primarily based within the Central, Downtown Phoenix Historic Districts (Willo, Coronado, FQ Story, Encanto Palmcroft, Roosevelt and all the neighborhoods in between). However, we will travel as far east as Arcadia area (44th St between Camelback and Thomas Rd); down west to I-17 and northbound to the border of Northern Ave.
My name is Heidi and since starting my pet care business I’ve tried to surpass my client’s expectations. I will go above and beyond the average pet sitter, who comes in to quickly feed & water your pets. In fact, I have many clients who say that when they arrive home after a long or short trip – their dog would run to the door looking for … Me!
Why Choose My Services?
We are Insured, Pet CPR Cert & Trained to Administer All Med Forms, including: Pill Form; Creams; Injections & Inhalers. We are also willing, able and grateful to care for your pet family member(s) in the same fashion you do (or better), but cannot, due to traveling, work commitments, etc.
What’s That…You Say You Need More Reasons?
In Home Pet Sitting: (Surrounding Phoenix)
Home security protection, as well as bringing the mail in, watering of plants, trash in/out, lights on/off, blinds up/down, while you are away.
Not having to worry about your pet’s health around other animals at a kennel. Or feeling guilty about leaving them stuck in a small confined area day and night, with little to no exercise.
No last minute hassles of getting your vet records together; preparations of gathering all of your pet’s supplies for their stay away and having to drive them to the “pet resort” and back.
Most importantly – many pets are scared when they go away to a strange place! They feel safe, comfortable and secure within their familiar surroundings at home.
Daily Dog Walking Services:
Reasons for you:
Can’t get home in time to walk your dog each day…
Sally keeps asking you to go to happy hour after work, but you need to walk your dog.
You have a new puppy that needs some much needed exercise & a potty break, but you work really far from home.
Your new pit bull rescue is acting out by chewing up everything in site…release some of that energy during the day with a walk!
Reasons for your dog:
Dogs need to be exercised each day. Don’t feel guilty anymore for not providing his/her daily walk…let me do it for you!
I Love how excited they get when I come to the door each day to give them their walk, treat and fresh water!
Dogs get lonely and bored during the day, a walk is the perfect answer to a bored dog!
Cage-Free Doggie Day Care/Play Dates:
There are occasions that call for extra attention for our little loved ones. Below are some reasons to have play-dates for your dog…
Reasons for you:
You just got your 1st dog & feel the normal guilt that goes along with leaving them at home all day…by themselves.
You would love to have the flexibility of not needing to rush home at lunch to let Fido out each day.
You want the pride that goes along with owning a dog that is truly socialized, happy & secure.
Although we are not “Certified” dog trainers; on the average your dog will leave a better dog than when he/she 1st arrived.
Reasons for your dog:
Dogs are naturally pack animals and fare better from being with their own species. If you only have one dog at home, you may want to set-up a doggie play-date.
Socializes them at a young age. Dogs who are exposed to many different people and pets at a young age are less likely to be aggressive or fearful in unfamiliar places, which will lead to fewer behavioral problems down the road.
Allows them to be a dog – to run, jump, dig, chew. These are the dogs natural instincts all things humans don’t want them to do!
Tires the dog out, so that they aren’t as hyper.
Great exercise for a longer, healthier life.
The exercise releases the dogs stress and energy.
A bored dog can become a “bad-dog” where as an exercised dog leads to a well-behaved dog.
Just for fun!!
Cage-Free Dog Boarding:
Many folks do not have doggie doors, mainly for security reasons. No need to worry about paying pricey overnight sitters…my home is your pet’s for day AND night time care.
For those of you with one dog at home, worried about leaving them alone & bored all day & night. They can now have a sleep over with other pals around!
Your best friend will be entertained by day & comfy, cozy and tucked in at the end of each night.
Caged-Small Pet Boarding:
Don’t want your pet Gerbil, Hamster, Ginny Pig, Turtle, bird, etc. to be left home alone? We are proud to now offer small pets into our boarding! As long as your small pet can be transported to our boarding facility/home in a small cage, we will provide him/her with all the love they can stand around the clock!
**Please note this service is only offered to boarding/dog day care clients.
No time to take your doggie to the doggie park? If you have a favorite park that you use and know your dog is well behaved with other pets at this particular park, I will take him/her to the park for an hour of fun, socializing and exercise.
If you do not have the time in the morning or evening to take/pick up your doggie to or from my day care, I will do so for an extra fee.
