My rates are the lowest in town!
I have done a lot of research with the major and most of the minor pet sitters in the Phoenix area and their rates were so outrageous (check the competitors prices) I could not believe it I know I would never pay that much so how could I ask someone else to pay it???
There are some elderly people that do have a cheaper rate ($25 per day) but think about what you would be getting with that service:
someone who is forgetful, someone who may not be able to do the things that you ask someone who doesn't keep contracts or the pet info sheet or the vet release form for that "just in case" incident, and most importantly:
someone who is doing the job not for the love of the pets but someone who just wants something to do (they are bored)
What would your choice be? I think my pictures and references speak for themselves!
