DL woman opens up pet sitting business

Detroit Lakes woman Robyn Beck has opened up a pet sitting business called “Lakes Pet Sitting.”

“For several years, friends and family members have requested that I watch their pets while they’re away,” said Beck, who says the experience was so rewarding that she decided to open it up to others.

“Many people cannot rely on friends or neighbors to help out when they’re gone,” said Beck. “The security of having a responsible, caring individual watch your ‘best friend’ is essential.”

Lakes Pet Setting provides care for dogs, cats and other pets while owners are away, as well as plant watering, bringing in  mail, adjusting lights and making a residence look “lived in.”

Beck is trained in Pet First Aid, is a member of Pet Sitters International and and is also insured and bonded.
