Member Bio – Gentle Guardian Pet Sitting

Dixie Schlabach 316-838-5691


When you are away from home, you can reduce separation anxiety in your pets by keeping them in their own environment with their own pet sitter– a pet sitter they can get to know and trust through consistent visits, focused loving attention and exercise and/or play in the manner they appreciate most. I have several toys and treat puzzles to break your pet’s boredom or loneliness that you can inspect and approve.


To give you peace of mind, knowing your pets are well cared for in a responsible, safe and gentle manner.
