A Chat with My Yuppy Puppy Pet Sitting
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My Yuppy Puppy Pet Sitting is a full-service, in-home pet-care provider. We are a wonderful alternative to kennels, boarding at your vet, or relying on friends to watch your pets and home while you are away. Your pets are our highest priority, and will be lovingly cared for in your absence.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Janet Birdsall, owner of My Yuppy Puppy, LLC, is an AKC-licensed conformation judge and has been a professional breeder of merit with the AKC since 1998. Pets were always an important part of her family, so it was only natural that she found her calling in caring, raising, and loving animals.
What do you love most about your job?
Ryan Birdsall—Janet’s son, now 24—is the main in-home pet sitter. Ryan, having been raised with multiple dogs his whole life, definitely loves and understands animals. He is sweet, kind, gentle, compassionate, levelheaded, and very knowledgeable. He is also an active, working vet tech [in the local area].
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
That her dog was a better dog now than when she left.
