About Auntie Ashley & Blondie's Buddies

Working with fur-kids is my passion and calling. I have been working in rescue with animals of all needs and ages since 2009, independently background checked via the state, insured, animal First Aid and CPR certified, have multiple continuing education certificates from the University of Edinburgh and Duke University, reviews listed on Facebook and Google, and am a member of Lakes Area Women in Business.


I care for your fur-kiddo in your home, as this is where they are most comfortable, however, my own loving home is also available!


A complimentary Meet and Greet is included as it gives us all an opportunity to get acquainted, make sure you and your fur-baby are comfy with me, they can catch my scent, then when the big day comes they remember “oh yeah, I remember this lady, mom / dad was okay with her and so was I!”.


I look forward to discussing the needs of you and your furry family member!

Why credentials matter when hiring a sitter for your furry children

Anyone can call themselves a "sitter", but not all are professionals!

Should I price compare or shop around by price alone when searching for a sitter?

I occasionally receive messages asking me for my prices alone, and no additional information. The first thought that comes to mind is, "you wouldn't find a reputable daycare for your human children by searching this way, so why such little care when it comes to your furry ones?"

As previously mentioned above, qualifications are key; does this person have continuing education, are they animal CPR and first Aid trained and up to date with their certification, carry insurance, background checked, etc? These are linked to experience, quality, and putting care into what a professional sitter does versus a hobbyist sitter, such as a neighbor or a friend. Pricing matches the quality of any professional you seek, whether that be your local home improvement professional, or a sitter such as myself. Choose the best and safest options when finding a sitter for your fur-children, professional experience and care are precious things that are not worth finding the best deal.
