 Neighborhood pet sitter offers daily visits and overnight pet sitting to keep pets comfortable in their own home.

Do you love your pets like a member of the family? Don’t you wish you could take them everywhere you go? Have you ever thought “if only someone could come to them?” Well now someone can!

THE CRAZY DOG LADIES, a successful, locally owned and operated business in Glendora, CA offering full dog walking and pet sitting services, is bringing their hometown services to Claremont. Sarah Lloyd, long time Claremont resident and lifetime animal lover, is one of the new faces of the Claremont CRAZY DOG LADIES! Sarah and her family are fixtures in the Claremont Village in the family’s antique store, Linda Lloyd’s Antiques.   Sarah is excited to bring THE CRAZY DOG LADIES to Claremont! “I have been an animal lover since I was young. We had everything from a goat to snakes. I am excited to do what I love as an adult and take care of pets the way their owners would.” Sarah knows Claremont is a great community of people and they will love the services provided by THE CRAZY DOG LADIES!

Jaclyn Baux has returned to THE CRAZY DOG LADIES as one of the Claremont pet sitters. Jaclyn was one of the first pet sitters to be recruited in Glendora and now looks forward to expanding in Claremont. “I have had animals around me my entire life. Starting in childhood, my family always had at least one pet at all times. From cats, dog, rabbits, hamsters and various reptiles, animals have always held a sweet spot in my heart. I look forward to assisting the Claremont community in caring for your fur babies, and building a long-term relationship.”

Lori Mikesell, owner and Head Crazy Dog Lady, says she started this business when she realized the need for convenient, affordable and dependable pet sitting options at a time when she had four dogs. “Although there are several wonderful facilities around, it was hard to find a place that was not a chain link, concrete pad with little exposure to the outdoors.   At that time, my two “old ladies” were 91 years old and would have much preferred staying home while their people were away.” THE CRAZY DOG LADIES offer daily visits for feeding, walking and playing with pets to keep them comfortable in their own environment. For more consistency in companionship, THE CRAZY DOG LADIES also offer overnight pet sitting in your home to keep your animals in their usual routine. Services conveniently include an element of house sitting too with sitters taking in your mail, picking up your newspaper and putting the trash out.

How to choose a pet sitter

Pet sitting is a great option to keep your pets in their routine while providing a friendly, dependable face to provide care and fun while you are away. But how to choose a pet sitter?
hot to sitter

Give yourself enough time prior to your trip to meet several pet sitters. Maybe a friend has referred a sitter, you have a flyer from your vet’s office or … you have already Googled THE CRAZY DOG LADIES   😉 

  • An in-person meeting is a must! See how the sitter interacts with your pets and how they respond to the sitter. You should also “click” with the sitter.
  • Ask questions! We all know our pets are like our kids and choosing a pet sitter is like picking a babysitter. How long is a visit? What is done during the visit? Will anyone besides the pet sitter be helping with your pets? Will your key be secure?
  • Licensed and Insured? You are allowing a pet sitter in your home to take care of your beloved animals and they should have protections in place for you as well as themselves. Being properly licensed and insured is important for both parties.
  • Call those references. The potential pet sitter should also be able to provide references who you should feel free to contact and ask about their experience with the sitter.

 

As pet sitters, The Crazy Dog Ladies treat your animals and your home with the respect and care with which we treat our own homes. We are licensed and insured for your peace of mind as well as our own. We welcome you to contact us so you can meet us and get to know who will be caring for animals, so your pups can sniff us out and your cats can decide if a “dog” lady will be acceptable!

THE CRAZY DOG LADIES discusses why your dog is a cute little licker

 

So you are sitting on the couch watching some TV, curled up with your faithful, furry snuggle-pup next to you when you the sound of constant licking breaks into your consciousness and you realize your hand is practically water logged!  Your lovable dog has been licking you the whole time you were watching CSI and she won’t stop!  Why is that?

 

At birth, puppies are licked by their mom and brothers and sisters for play or grooming.  They lick their mom to ask permission to eat.  It is a natural way for them to communicate.  With us humans, they could be communicating so many things.  They, of course, lick us because they just plain old love us. Licking soothes dogs especially when humans taste so good.  Your dog gives you some licks to say “I am here, I love you and I want some of your attention.”  This is a learned behavior and excessiveness is determined by the “lick-ee” not necessarily the “lick-or.”  If you let your pup lick you nonstop then he will think it is okay.  If it is unacceptable behavior for you, be sure to stop it early.

Animals lick each to help in the grooming the process.  They may also be trying to heal a wound of their furry friend.  Some licking could be a sign of other issues such as allergies or inflammations so if your dog turns the licking onto themselves, you should take a look at the affected area and decide if your vet should be contacted.

 

Bottom line is that your dog licks because he loves.  You are lucky to get that kind of tasty attention!

THE CRAZY DOG LADIES Can Help with Separation Anxiety

People love our service because it allows their pet-children to remain calm and comfortable in the familiar surroundings of their own home when the family goes away.  Many pets, however, will experience a bit of separation anxiety until they realize that the pet sitter is an acceptable substitute and will be there consistently to care for them and show them love.

 

It is very common that dogs will not eat for a day or two into your vacation.  Although they may not be eating their kibble, it is the rare dog who can resist a treat of any kind.  When we have a pup who is not comfortable enough to eat a full meal, we will tempt them with their approved treats so at least they get something in their tummies.  I have sat on the ground many times to hand feed kibble, piece by piece, to a wary dog.  This not only gets them to eat something but builds trust between us.  Typically, this kind of separation anxiety will not last long, as I mentioned, just a visit or two.   The dog may not eat as regularly as when her family is home but she will eat enough to sustain herself until your return at the very least!

 

Of course, there are more serious cases of separation anxiety which may occur each time you leave your dog alone.  They may have accidents or involve themselves in some destructive behavior…goodbye favorite pair of shoes!  These cases require a more specific and consistent strategy.  It is in your pet’s best interest, as well as your own, to teach them that although you leave, you always come back.  It is nice when you are in a position to bring your pup everywhere you go or you are home all day with them.  It is also a gift to teach them that being alone is okay.  As I always say, I am not a dog trainer, but consistency is the key.  Even if you have nowhere to go, take a moment to walk up the street.  Give Rover a treat before you exit and a bit of love.  Take your walk up the street and come right back, giving Rover a treat and love when you return.  Do this a few times each day then increase your time away by going around the block and eventually to the grocery store.  Eventually, Rover will know that it is okay to rest and enjoy his alone time.  Of course, we know that those cute little ears will be keen on listening for your car in the driveway and your key in the lock.

THE CRAZY DOG LADIES Provides
The Scoop on Poop

I love walking around our lovely town.  Armed with grocery bags, I am prepared for possible poop pick for my two dogs, Spooky and Dinky.  One thing I don’t like to see is remnants of previous dog owners who thought it acceptable not to clean up after their dog.   I feel bad for the homeowners whose yards are marked by dried up dog feces although I am sure they don’t need my assistance in not appreciating it.  For that matter, all of us should be upset when we see these unsightly piles.

 

I will admit there has been a time or two that I found myself watching Spooky poop while I guiltily realize I forgot a bag.  I made sure to improvise though… I “borrowed” the plastic covering of my neighbor’s newspaper (making sure to move the now naked newspaper to a sprinkler-free zone); I have even driven back to pick it up after my walk. I also may or may not be the person who followed someone to their home (after I watched them watch their dog poop in my yard and leave it) and returned their poop to them on their front porch…in a bag of course…but again, that may or may not have been me.

 

You might have heard that dog poop is a good fertilizer and that makes you feel better about not picking up after your dog.  This is absolutely wrong.  Dog poop is gross!   Cow manure is a good fertilizer because it actually started out as vegetation.  Dog’s diets are very different. Most dog foods today are composed of beef, chicken and pork products making their poop very acidic.   In 1991, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said that dog poop is a dangerous pollutant full of parasites and bacteria. It is not good for your lawn and is certainly not good for people.

 

Just because you walk away, it doesn’t mean that your dog poop just “goes away”.  Although it will eventually decompose, assuming weather conditions are right for decomposition, the parasites, worms and their eggs remain.  Dog poop can spread hookworms, ringworms, tapeworms and Salmonella. These parasite’s eggs can last for years in your soil. It is loaded with E Coli and fecal coliform bacteria which causes serious kidney disorders, intestinal illness, cramps and diarrhea in humans. The next time you walk barefoot, do some gardening, or watch your kids playing barefoot in the yard, think of the possibilities of getting infected from those parasites, even though the dog poop has been gone for years!  It can also breakdown into our soil, be washed into storm drains and infect our water supply.

 

​If you own a dog, then picking up after your dog comes with the territory.  Be polite to your neighbors and respect our city.  Clean up after your dog…it’s the right thing to do.​
