-- Services provided include dog walking and in-home pet sitting for dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and other small animals.
"Claymont is a Blueprint Community, and I'm excited to be opening a new business here," said Teresa Rothaar, owner of Upward Dog Pet Sitting. "I look forward to serving the people and pets in my community, and hope to ultimately bring jobs into the area."
While busy professionals have long relied on dog walking services to exercise their pets and provide potty breaks during the day, in-home boarding of dogs, cats and other small animals is growing in popularity as an alternative to using traditional kennel facilities. The experience is more convenient for the owner, minimizes stress to the animal, and is usually less expensive as well. Unlike boarding facilities and some other pet sitting services, Upward Dog Pet Sitting does not charge extra on holidays, for administering standard medications, such as pills or vitamins, or for late-night or early-morning visits or walks.
Upward Dog Pet Sitting is fully insured and bonded, and Teresa Rothaar is a member of Pet Sitters International and Pet Sitters Associates, LLC.
