Teresa Bruner

I love being a Professional Pet Sitter.  Before moving to Tucson, Arizona in 2007 with my husband, 2 sons and dog, I was a Human Resources Manager for a large Hi-Tech company for 20 years.  I decided I wanted to do something other than work in a cubicle and which involved my love of animals.  I also wanted to be my own boss. 

After starting a very small pet sitting business in 2010 I had the opportunity to purchase a well established, local business from a woman who was moving out of state.  I purchased Kim’s Pet Sitting Services in May, 2012. 

After new clients began asking why my name wasn’t “Kim” I decided to change the name of my business to The Pet Nanny In-Home Pet Sitting, LLC.  In 2015 I was asked if I was interested in purchasing another Pet Sitting Company whose owner was retiring.  There must be something magical about the month of May because in May 2015 I purchased Latch Key Pet Sitting.  Since beginning my small business in 2010, I have grown my client base considerably.  I have added several Pet Sitters who contract with my business to provide the best pet sitting care possible. 

I love walking into homes and seeing the happy faces and wagging tails of my pet clients.  They are always so happy to see me and sad to see me leave.  I am very lucky to have found my niche and am lucky to have such wonderful clients – both pet and people!

When I’m not giving loves to cats and dogs, I spend time with my husband and 2 sons.  I also have 2 wonderful dogs who sniff me madly when I return home after a pet sit.  It makes me feel a bit guilty for leaving them!   While I don’t have cats of my own, I tell my clients that I get my Cat-fix when I pet sit theirs!
