Advantages of Gentle Guardian

Unfortunately, in Kansas and most states there is no licensing or regulations to indicate proficiency as a pet sitter.  My professional credentials and advantages of hiring Gentle Guardian Pet Sitting include:

  • I fall in love with your pets and treat them as if they were mine.

  • Insured (for your protection–not just mine)

  • Bonded

  • Annually Background Checked

  • Current Certificate in Pet First Aid/CPR from Pet Tech, Inc.

  • Member of Pet Sitters International since 2010.  PSI is the world’s leading educational association for professional pet sitters

  • A founding member of Pet Professional Alliance of Wichita, a new community organization of pet related businesses that you are sure to hear more about. Our motto is “Gentle care is in paw’s reach.”

  • Training in body language of dogs, cats and horses

  • Training on positive reinforcement with no fear, pain or intimidation

  • Having a professional contract to set mutual expectations and provide clarity of services

  • Having a veterinary release for emergencies (your vet)

  • Having plans for worst case scenarios 

  • Several years of actual pet sitting experience (since 2010)

  • It’s not just a sideline “job” for me; It’s a career. 


Every family has a whole new story and methods of caring for their pets and I learn from each and every one of them. As a professional pet sitter, I also take advantage of many opportunities to learn about pets utilizing science based information.
