Pack&Pride is the brainchild of Alex Fowler and Amanda Oliver – pet owners (two beagles, Frances and Faye), parents of three teenage daughters who love to help us, and experienced pet sitters with 23 years of combined expertise caring for pets in and around Raleigh. We’re fully insured and members of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters.
We started life as Oak City Pet Sitting, but have grown beyond Raleigh and have rebranded our business to Pack&Pride in early 2021.
What makes Pack&Pride special
Quite simply – we’re a family-run small business that’s the perfect size. Big enough to have policies, quality control standards, and redundancies that make us reliable; and small enough to have a personal connection with each and every client. We are relentlessly driven to delight customers and continuously improve our operations each and every day.
Our approach to customer service
We hate to say no. We believe in fair pricing. We have the largest service area of any pet sitting firm based in Raleigh. And most importantly, we take the stress out of worrying about your pet(s) while you’re at work or away. The kind words we routinely get from customers and our five star rating on Yelp!, Facebook, and Google show that we’re committed to 100% customer satisfaction.
Using technology to stay connected
We love technology and use it to make clients’ lives easier. We use the industry-leading Time to Pet platform, which handles all of our scheduling, invoicing, and visit reports. Clients have their choice of email or text notifications after each visit.
Who We Are
The secret to our success is undoubtedly the quality of our dog walkers and pet sitters. In addition to completing a background check, each of one of these sitters is a pet lover, reliable, trustworthy, and most of all – kindhearted.
