Owner - Little Friends Pet Sitting in Charlotte, NC - Terry Richardson

Terry Richardson

CEO / Owner

I have a passion for all animals!

In 2009, I needed to find care for my kitty, Tory. Previously I asked friends, neighbors, or I boarded my pets. I had exhausted the ‘kindness’ of my friends and neighbors and I didn’t want to board Tory. So, I decided to hire a pet sitter.

Wow! What a fantastic experience. And it clicked … I could become a pet sitter and dog walker and provide the same level of care for other pets and their pet parents. I began to study the pet sitting and dog walking business, reading anything I could find. I also became a certified pet sitter through an international company called Pet Sitters International (PSI).

PSI has an incredible training program which provides training, help and support to pet sitting companies. After ‘a lot’ of research, I opened Little Friends Pet Sitting and Dog Walking in February 2010.

I then joined NAPPS (National Association of Professional Pet Sitters) which is another organization which supports, coaches and trains pet sitters and dog walkers. I moved forward to become certified in two pet first aid courses: Red Cross Pet First Aid and PetTech. I continue to learn everything I can in order to provide quality pet care, but also ensure we have user friendly, seamless processes for pet owners.

I am proud to have a successful and fulfilling business where I and my team of pet sitters and dog walkers can provide an exceptional service to pets and their pet parents.
