I started Little Bay Pet Services, LLC eight and a half years ago with a marketing degree and a big dose of hope. Today I share my home with my husband, daughter, a German shepherd and three cats. Yes…it’s a mini zoo!
I enjoy educating myself about animal behaviors, products and foods so I can pass this information on to my clients. The most rewarding aspect of owning a pet sitting business is the lasting relationships I have built with my clients and their pets.
Heather truly understands how important it is to provide excellent care to client’s pets and treats them as they were her own. Heather provides overnight care for those who are looking for an alternative to boarding. She will stay in your home while you are away and make sure that your pooch never gets lonely at night. Heather enjoys the bond she develops with her clients animals by sharing their environment! When asked she will even share the bed with her four-legged friends.
Marcy has always been an animal lover! She grew up in a home where cats and dogs were always part of her family. In her adult life she has owned a yellow lab, a beagle, a chihuahua and a cane corso mastiff. So as you can see no dog is too big or small for Marcy. Marcy even had a fish for seven years. She attributes its long life to talking to it every day. Recently she welcomed a new pit bull puppy named Blue into her family.
Marcy has been with Little Bay Pet Services, LLC for several years, primarily as a dog walker, along with some pet sitting. She enjoys building long-term relationships with her animals and clients. Marcy’s dogs eagerly await her arrival each day for their mid day walk!
Petey grew up with cats and dogs in her home in New York then moved to New Hampshire to attend college. After college she decided New Hampshire is where she wanted to live.
Petey and her family share their Seacoast home with two spoiled dogs, an 11 year old Golden Retriever named Hayley and a 3 year old Havenese named Henry. After working in the sporting goods industry for 23 years, she decided to make a career change and look for a job that would include working with animals in some capacity.
Petey currently works as a receptionist at a busy Seacoast Veterinary Hospital and previously worked at a doggy daycare. When not working, Petey keeps very active playing recreational basketball and ice hockey. She also enjoys hiking, biking, running and camping. Another passion is taking photos for her small photography business.
Haley has always had a huge place in her heart for animals. Haley grew up surrounded by all different types and sizes of animals including cats, bunnies, dogs, donkeys and horses. Haley’s family currently has two dogs, three cats, three alpacas and an elderly miniature horse. Having experience with all these animals makes Haley very flexible and gives her a deep understanding of animal care.
She is currently a Junior at the University of New Hampshire majoring in Recreation Management and Policy. Although she lives on campus she makes sure to go home every week and spend time with her dogs.
Karen works at the Seacoast Science Center in Rye and is a trained Marine Mammal Rescue volunteer. She is also a certified Reiki Master, artist, and soap-maker. Karen enjoys hiking, kayaking, cooking, gardening, and just about anything that involves being creative or nature.
Tiffany has been drawn to animals all of her life. Growing up on a farm she was surrounded not only by indoor animals such as turtles, birds, dogs, cats, gerbils, hamsters and guinea pigs but she also had farm animals including cows, pigs and chickens.
She and her sisters would find stray cats along the roadside and bring them home to nurture and love. All three times they rescued cats that were pregnant so the three of them and her parents had the job of not only raising and giving one cat a loving family but being a foster home to several litters of kittens.
Tiffany is a single Mom to a wonderful 11 year old boy and together they share their home with their kitty Bear. Pet sitting has become such a blessing in her life as it allows her to still care and bond with the animals she always had in her life.
Alex is a lifelong animal lover with over twenty years of professional experience in the commercial pet industry. She’s owned, at various times in her life, dogs, cats, ferrets, rats, snakes, tarantulas, rabbits, birds, degus, chickens, poison dart frogs and turtles. She is an avid aquarium enthusiast, keeping aquariums of many different varieties over the years including freshwater tropicals, African Cichlids and marine reef tanks.
Alex and her family now share their lives with one Basenji dog, who is currently their only pet and is therefore completely spoiled. She looks forward to getting to know her client’s pets and assisting in keeping them safe, loved and well cared for.
Luanne cannot imagine a life without being surrounded by animals. Growing up with cats, dogs, ducks, fish, chickens and pond frogs set the tone for a life filled with animal best friends. She has also had many wonderful cats and dogs her adult life, and currently has four rescue cats and two goldendoodles, Olive and Ophie.
Upon retirement, she became a SAFER volunteer – a trap, neuter and return organization located in Hampton, NH. With SAFER she handled the feral cat feeding schedules, initiated and welcomed new volunteers, fed feral cats, handled the phone lines, arranged adoptions, and “turned” many feral kittens into happy, loving kitties ready for their forever homes. When her own home cat count totaled “four” she knew her heart was too soft and retired from SAFER before she ended up with a baker’s dozen.
Luanne loves building relationships with clients and their animals/pets– she can’t imagine doing anything else!
