Sure, your chickens provide you with eggs, but they also provide you with a lot of entertainment. Have you ever really watched a chicken as it intently pursues an insect? Or listened to the little inquiring noises they make as they go about their daily business? It doesn’t take long to learn that each member of your flock has a distinct personality.
Of course, having a backyard flock comes with a lot of responsibility, and when you need to be away, you also need to know there’s someone you can depend on to provide proper care for your flock’s needs. At GSPS, we keep your chickens happy and healthy by continuing your daily schedule, providing fresh food and water and collecting eggs and ensuring they’re locked safe and sound in their coop at night.
As a flock owner, you know that even slight disruptions in routines can cause stress that can have a major impact on egg production as well as your chickens’ health and well-being. Let us help you keep your flock as healthy and content as possible.
Dogs are pack animals by nature, and that means they need regular contact and interaction with other members of their human “pack” to be happy and thrive. When you’re away, whether for business or pleasure, our experienced pet sitters can fill in for you, providing your dog with the regular care and contact they crave.
Cats are smart, loving animals, and even though they may seem aloof or independent to the untrained eye, as any cat owner knows, cats are full of unique personality traits including a strong preference for regular routines. When you need to be away from home for an extended period, whether for professional or personal reasons, putting your cat in a kennel can cause it to become stressed and may even cause illness.
Small Animal Sitting
Who knew so much love and sweetness could fit in such a tiny, furry package? If you own a pet like a rabbit, sugar glider, hamster, guinea pig or other small animal, you know how loveable and special these pets can be – and so do we. When you need to leave your home, whether for a long business trip or vacation or just a quick “getaway” weekend, we can provide all the care your small pet needs.
Just like your furry pets, feathered loved ones develop strong attachments to the humans who care for them. Their happiness, health and well-being are based on a strong sense of routine and habit, and disrupting that routine can cause stress that in turn can cause molting, eating disorders and health issues. In flocks, disruptions in regular routines can also cause negative behaviors like pecking and can cause egg production to fluctuate or even cease.
I only walk one household at a time. We do absolutely no pack walking. This allows us to give your dog(s) the most personalized attention possible. They will never get lost in the shuffle and you will not have to worry about a disagreement among other dogs.
