Sweetie, my cockatiel-2007!
Hi! My name is Jill Nuciolo. I
currently share my home with an five-year-old long-hair German
shepherd named Samson, my 11 year old sister & brother Blossom and Spike, who were adopted from
LiFeline Adoptions, and Sweetie, my cockatiel. They
are all fondly referred to as “The FluffyPaws Gang.”
As an animal lover, owner, and professional
pet sitter, I have hands-on experience with administering insulin
shots, subcutaneous fluids, and eye and ear drops. I am also
adept at giving oral (and transdermal) medications to cats and dogs
alike. I have experience with birds, fish, and other small
mammals as well. (No, I don’t “do” tarantulas!)
I have plenty of experience with common
ailments like hairballs, minor infections etc., as well as behavioral
problems such as litter box avoidance, aggression, and
fearfulness. My expertise is not limited to cats,
however. I am great at playing ball or Frisbee with your dog, or
walking them on lead for mid-day walks, if needed. I always clean
up after your pet!
I have owned my own Professional Pet Sitting business for 20
years. I am certified through Pet Sitters International, bonded
and insured. If your pet has an accident or injury while in my
care, PSI insurance will cover them, as well. Some pet sitters
claim to be insured, and perhaps they are. But if they are not
professionally insured, their insurance may not cover them in your home
– YOURS will. Your pet may not be covered against injury or
illness, either. Be sure to verify what your pet sitter actually
means when they tell you they are “insured.”
I work alone, so you meet me and you
know it's me that will be coming into your home. There will be no
surprises finding out a stranger has been in your home and possibly not
giving your pet the correct care. (I do have back-up people ready at
all times to take over the care of your pets should I become hurt or
ill. In 20 years, I have needed this only one time, for one day)!
My fee schedule is comparable to many
others. While my prices may be slightly higher than some
individuals who advertise, you are getting a professional pet
sitter. I maintain my PSI certification, and am keeping up with
the latest information by completing a minimum of 30 Continuing
Education credits in the field of pet care every three years.
Please verify all information anyone gives you – anyone can say
anything about themselves – be it true, false, or just misleading. With
internet search engines and websites, all those claims can be verified
quickly! Don’t entrust your pets to some part-time individual who
has no professional credentials. Check their references, check
their claims. Be certain whomever you select is being 100%
truthful with you. Entrusting your pets’ care and giving access
to your home is serious business. This is your family member you
are leaving in their hands!
If you've had a bad experience with a pet sitter – don't give up!
Please call me! Check my references and let's see if I can change
that into a wonderful, long lasting relationship with me and your pets!
You can be assured your pet will be well cared for.
