Sit n' Stay’s staff includes a number of fantastic office managers and area managers as well as 25+ pet sitters and dog walkers that have been carefully screened and selected. Sit n' Stay is different than most pet sitting services because when you hire Sit n' Stay, you are not hiring an individual, you are hiring a family. Our staff works in teams so that we can take time off without disrupting the pets in our care. We take our company seriously, we hire only the best people, and then we make sure they are fully trained in pet care as well as pet first aid.
Our team members are employees, not contractors, which means that all of our team members are background checked, fully insured, go through rounds of interviews and detailed on-boarding and on-going training. We are committed to regular staff meetings and trainings to make sure that all of our team members are providing the best care for you and your furry family members.
