About usAbout House Calls Pet Sitting and Mary Anne Johndrow
I have loved animals for as long as I can remember. As a kid I begged my father for a dog, and when he said “no” – I started walking all the neighborhood dogs. I was 13 when I knocked on the neighbors’ doors and asked if I could take their dog for a walk. I was usually greeted with a surprised look, from both the owner and the dog!
When I was 15, I started working for a pet shop - Puppy Palace. I loved that job very much, I would ride my bike the 10 miles from Holliston to route 9 in Natick, just to spend time at the shop (much to my mother’s dismay).
Eventually I was able to get my own German Shepherd puppy. "Kaptain" went everywhere with me during senior year of high school. My nickname became “Woofy”. I learned about dog obedience and confirmation showing with Kaptain. I also made many of the training mistakes with dogs!
I started my pet sitting service in 1986 at the suggestion of a friend that needed her doggies watched while she went on vacation. Soon, pet sitting was a full time job for me. Over the years, I managed an Akita kennel in Bellingham, a 40-stall horse farm in Medway, and spent 2 years working in the Large and Small Animal Hospitals at Tufts in Grafton. I also lived at an 18 horse-boarding barn in Holliston, and got up every morning in the dark to feed and turn out my charges.
I met many wonderful people and their pets. I really enjoy all the funny stories we all have about our animals. I have owned horses, Akitas, cats (one lived to be 17), fish and birds. Today I live in Framingham with my husband and our daughter. We have a Chihuahua named “Chico”, and his wife, a dachshund named “Greta”. At my house, we each think we are the boss!
