About Us

Pawsitive Personal Pet Care is a professional, loving and reliable in-home pet sitting service that provides special care to a wide variety of animal companions and their owners at reasonable prices. Our service has been certified in animal health and behavior by the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) where we have been an active member since 2004.
Our service area includes many areas of Santa Cruz County.

My background includes experience and education in animal behavior, clinical dietetics, analytical chemistry and a degree in neurobiology from U.C. Santa Cruz. I have been looking after animals for years and really enjoy my decision to open this small, personal service. I have back-up, bonded pet sitters assist me when needed and we just love spoiling and playing with the beautiful array of pets that come our way. I have taken photographs of them trying to capture their beauty (and for my files!) and thought I would display them here. In the last few years, I’ve also found that I really love the people who love animals like I do. It’s a win-win situation!

Pawsitive Personal Pet Care’s references, policies and procedures, and a customer testimonial are available under “More Info”.  Please check out the NAPPS website, video and also the NAPPS “Professional Code of Conduct” (printable document) link on bottom of the “Services” page that provides standards followed closely.  We also offer second-home security and care for people that live out of the area but have a home in the Santa Cruz County area.
