Gizmo:My favorite spot at my favorite guest home!
Club Pet was formed in July, 1995.
The idea came to a family on a cold, wintry night. They were planning a week long trip to a nice, warm destination and of course, a big part of the planning process was to arrange proper care and boarding for their beloved dog, Teddi. Teddi was a very special member of their family and kennels with their very basic boarding services, were certainly not an option. They had used a pet sitting service once, but just the thought of their Teddi being left alone for 22 out of 24 hours was worrisome. This was not the way to treat such a special member of their family. They would have no other option but to turn to their friends and family, but this was often an imposition. Many of their travel plans fell through because of our endless search for a suitable care provider for Teddi.
This is when the brain storming session began. If parents have a network of carefully screened and reliable babysitters that they can call upon to provide child care services, in their absence, then why couldn't there be a similar service/network that pet owners could rely upon for their pets? A service that would enable pet owners to leave their pets in a caring, loving, homelike environment, so they could enjoy a stress free vacation, knowing that their pet would be getting the same love and attention that they normally get at home. The idea and the concept of our unique service was fined tuned and Club Pet was born.
