About Us

Hello, I’m Sergio! With a background that’s a bit different from your average pet caretaker, I bring a unique set of skills and experiences to the table. I proudly served as a Detective for 27 years, where attention to detail and a strong sense of responsibility were my guiding principles. This past summer, I ventured into house-sitting and discovered a new passion. While my clients enjoyed their vacations, I took great care of their homes, ensuring both security and comfort. But that’s not all – as a dog lover, I also provided loving care for their furry friends. My dual role as a vigilant house sitter and affectionate dog caretaker truly sets me apart. Whether you’re looking for someone to watch over your home, your pets, or both, you can trust in my unique blend of professional vigilance and personal care.

At Mutts & Pups, we specialize in top-notch pet care services. While we also offer house sitting, our primary focus is ensuring your pets receive the love and attention they need in your absence. Our house sitting is an additional service, offered to ensure your home is cared for just as well as your pets.
