Howard Sturman, Owner

In 1999, after twenty-three years in retail management, it was time for me to make a career change.

I wanted to utilize my extensive business background to do something that I enjoyed.  I wanted to wake up every morning and be happy to go to work.

A Trusted Friend Pet Sitting Service was the ideal combination of my goals.  I get to be around animals who are happy, playful, and appreciative that I am caring for them.

Yes, pet sitting is a fun way to make a living, but it is a business, and I am always mindful of that fact.  I assume a liability for both your pets and home. and I take my responsibility seriously.

My MISSION STATEMENT has been the same since day one:

I will treat everyone's pets and home as if they are my own!
