Welcome to Furreal’s Pet Sitting Services! We are excited for this new venture to begin! We have some wonderful clients in place, not to mention the many loving pets in our care. Our hope is that you’ll give us a try because no one cares more about your furry family members as we do.

Furreal’s Pet Sitting Services

Your pets are members of your family so naturally you care about their happiness and overall well-being. Our goal is to provide peace of mind to our customers by knowing their animals are safe with a dependable (and affordable!) pet sitter in the comfort of their own home. Whether you’re working late hours, traveling or just out for the night, you want to know your pet will be cared for by an experienced pet sitter. No more awkward conversations with your family or friends about caring for Fido and worry they might forget anyways.

Our professional pet sitting services are personalized and customized to fit you and your pets needs. We give you daily updates when you're traveling (your choice of text message, e-mail or voicemail). We also leave you a written diary of each visit with your pets. You can count on us to pay close attention in monitoring the health of your pets and the security of your home. Upon your arrival, your home is in order and you've come back to a happy pet-- no extra trips to pick them up at your friends house and no newspapers or flyers for you to retrieve at the front door, making it obvious that you were gone. We strive to ensure your pet is comfortable and stress-free in addition to giving you complete peace of mind.

Successful Puppy Mill Protest!

About 25 of us were in front of Puppy Town in Sarasota on Tuesday to show support against puppy mills. It was a hot day out but we received lots of love from many drivers passing by. It was wonderful to meet so many other advocates that speak out against this inhumane practice and we can’t wait for the next protest! To see pictures of this event, please visit SarasotaDog.com and click on “Event Photos” at the top of the page.

Below is the information included in the flyers we were passing out to drivers from the Humane Society of the United States:

Why You Shouldn’t Buy a Puppy From a Pet Store:

  • Many pet stores that sell puppies are propping up puppy mills, mass breeding facilities where dogs are crammed into filthy, barren cages with minimal exercise, vet care or human contact.
  • Breeding dogs at puppy mills spend their entire lives in cages without human companionship. When their fertility wanes, they’re destroyed or discarded.
  • Many pet stores mislead customers about the source of their dogs. Pet stores boast that they deal only with USDA licensed breeders. Yet licensing requirements are minimal and many breeders remain licensed despite repeated violations of even these basic standards.
  • Dogs of all shapes and sizes, including purebreds, are available for adoption at shelters and rescue groups.

Praise From Our Customers

I just wanted to share a small note I received from one of my clients over this past weekend:

“Thank you so much for watching the dogs and kittens! The house looked great and the boys were happy! I will recommend you to everyone and we are going away in Sept. probably!”     -T & J

Another happy customer! :)

Doggie Teeth Cleaning

Recently, I was talking to one of my clients about his concern for his dog’s teeth. He had unsuccessfully tried to use finger toothbrushes in an attempt to clean them but his dog seemed less than pleased and cooperative. My client had mentioned looking into taking the dog to the veterinarian, who offers cleaning with anesthesia. The procedural cost was, of course, more on the expensive side. On his behalf, I did a little research and found an alternative!

What’s Up Dog?

Today, I called in to participate on WTMY’s radio show to answer: “What’s the Most Simple, Important Command You Can Teach Your Dog?”
