Farm Care Pet Sitting


With 3 horses, 3 dogs & 2 cats, traveling used to be difficult for us. Since we have discovered you, we can pick up and go at a moments notice! Knowing we can count on you to provide them with the attention and TLC they need allows us to relax while we are away... It is a a great feeling to be able to travel & leave our pets in their own home rather than in a kennel, and know that they are in your experienced, capable hands.

Thank you so much!

Horse Care
My husband and I feel very confident having Heather watch our house, property, two cats and one horse when we are away. Heather has two horses of her own at home that she cares for and rides, so I have a lot of confidence in her ability to take care of my horse. With her knowledge and experience she would be able to recognize if anything was wrong and be able to handle the situation. This allows us to leave our "kids" in good hands and enjoy our vacation time.

Horse Care

We have dogs, cats and horses so getting away even for just one day is difficult. It's been great having Heather come over to our farm to take care of our animals while we go off for the day. Our dogs hate going to the kennel so this has been wonderful for them. They get to stay home, we get to get away for a break and everyone's happy!

Horse Care

My name is Kay Cushman and I live in Canterbury, NH with 6 aged mustang horses. Heather has been caring for these horses when I am away, both short and long term, for several years now. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone looking for a dependable, honest and knowledgeable person to take care of their animals, whether, horses, cats or dogs.

Horse Care

I've been using Heather (While You're Away)for pet care for the last 5 years. I have horses, cows, pigs, chickens, donkeys, cats, and a dog. She is a responsible, reliable, friendly person who takes her pet care business serious. She cares for all our farm animals with no problem. We can always take a vacation without a worry which is a hard thing to do with all our animals. Thanks Heather!


What can we say... As a pet sitter Heather is a KEEPER . She took great care of our six Labs and Shepard's for the entire week that we spent in Florida as well as other past times. We never felt so confident leaving our kids (dogs) for that length of time. Heather is very organized gathering as much information on our pets/ owners / veterinarian etc. It reassured us that even if any mishap occurred, we knew she had our immediate Vet on hand and also has the knowledge to care for all other types of animals as well. we will always use heather in he future and have recommended her to other friends and family as well.

Heather is without a doubt a very wonderful pet/farm sitter. I left her with my WHOLE FARM of over 100 animals and Came back to them very safe and happy. Thank you Heather I am looking forward to many more trips away. Carlene & Karl Wheeler

"With quite a menagerie of pets to care for, including dogs, goats, chickens, donkeys, and chinchillas, we don't really have the option to use a kennel when we are on vacation. Since you began taking care of our animals, we've felt completely comfortable leaving for a long vacation or short weekend trip.

Thank you for all you do and all the extra services you provide. Anytime you need a reference, please give our name. Your general knowledgeable concerning our animals, along with your obvious fondness toward all of them, sets the bar very high for both pet sitting and house sitting. Plus, your punctuality and reliability just adds to the excellence of your service. Thank you again -- we're so lucky to be able to have found you!!!"
