Lazy Brown Dog

A message from the owner:

I started informally pet sitting when I was 13 years old for my neighbor in Tomstown, PA.  Dixie had two dogs, a cat, a parrot and an aquarium (there also might have been goats and chickens).  Dixie moved twice, staying in the Waynesboro, PA area and I continued to sit for her for the next 34 years.

 I sat for others in the Waynesboro area, but I always had a "day job", therefore, my pet sitting was more of a hobby.   The only reason I discontinued sitting was because I moved to Arizona and lived there for five years. The last two years I was in Arizona I started a pet sitting business (no other job) and loved it.  I had moved to Arizona to be near my daughter, but in March 2016 she relocated to North Carolina.  

It only made sense to me to be back on the east coast and be near family and friends, and do what I love so I relocated to York, PA. I started Go Away Pet Sitting in March of 2017 and have become one of the most reputable pet sitting businesses in York County. 

I love what I do and am thankful to be able to provide this service to the community.
