     Hello, my name is Wendi Manwiller. I am fifty six years old, married with two children, five grandchildren and three dogs.

     I was in a very bad car accident back in 1989 which left me paralyzed and in a wheel chair, never to walk again according to my doctors. After seventeen months in a wheel chair and lots of hard work, I proved the doctors wrong and walked out of the hospital. I have a degree in Sports Medicine from Temple University, class of 1979.

     After my accident I was not able to perform my duties as a therapist and was trying to decide what to do with my life. We first wanted to take a vacation as a family to celebrate my recovery. Having four dogs, the question was, what to do with the dogs when we went away? We certainly didn’t want to kennel them, our personal decision. Do we have family or friends watch them? No, didn’t want to impose on them. That’s when the idea struck me, there must be other people out there with the same dilemma. It was early 1992 and I decided to go into the pet sitting business. Growing up with animals all my life and loving them dearly, it would be the perfect job for me. I went back to school to get my vet tech license to better prepare myself for any emergencies that might arise.  At that time I was the only pet sitter in the area. I offered dog walking and doggie daycare at my home. Since then the business has grown to what it is today.

     I provide a full array of services: dog walking, home visits for daytrips and vacations, and an off leash hike every day for dogs that are trained by my staff and me specifically for this activity. I also provide transport to and from the groomer and the vet. 

     There are many pet sitters out there that don’t offer what I do in regards to services. I take pride in owning my own business now for 20 years and have over 300 established clients. I offer a variety of services to fit every individual need and I am extremely flexible when it comes to giving my clients pets the care and love that they need. I employ five pet sitters, both full and part-time.  I am available 365 days a year and let my clients know well ahead of time if I will be taking vacation myself.

     References are available upon request. All special requests by the client will be considered.

     I am a member of the National Assoc.of Professional Pet Sitters, Pet Sitters Associates LLC, Berks County Humane Society and I am AKC licensed for breed specific. I am also a licensed foster home for herding breeds for the county of Berks. I have two dogs who are licensed therapy dogs and one I am training for agility. Should an emergency arise and your personal veterinarian not be available, I recommend two veterinarians I know personally and will use for emergencies.

     Any other questions or information you would like, don't hesitate to call and ask or email us.
