Why Should I Hire an In-Home Pet Sitter?

Benefits for your pet:

  • They are surrounded by familiar sights, smells and sounds and will maintain consistency with their regular diet and exercise routine; reducing anxiety while you are away
  • They will have play time and individual care that includes loving and petting, instead of being kenneled at a boarding facility
  • They will not risk exposure to other animals’ illnesses or parasites

Benefits for you:

  • Complete relaxation that comes from knowing your beloved pets are in loving, capable hands
  • Elimination of the stress of transporting and leaving your pets in an unfamiliar environment
  • Not feeling the imposition of asking family, friends or neighbors to care for your pets
  • Knowing someone is keeping an eye on your property with frequent visits while you are away

Our Services & Rates

In Home Pet Sitting
When you leave for your next business trip or vacation you do not need to be worried about your babies! We strive to copy your pet’s regular routine by providing daily affection in your home, fresh food and water, exercise/play, outdoor potty breaks or litter box maintenance and medication administration.

Or – maybe you are working long hours and find you can’t give your faithful friend the time he/she needs? We offer dog walking/exercising in the middle of the day that of course includes a potty break. Dogs who don’t get enough exercise can become anxiety-ridden and/or aggressive. Rates start at $25 for in-home pet sitting visits. Whatever you need – we can do!

We also offer overnight pet sitting where a sitter stays in your home with your pets. All basic care is included as well as other complimentary house sitting tasks (gathering mail, taking out trash, watering plants, etc). The sitter may leave for a few hours (as you would) but will limit their absence to a short time. Rates start at $100/night. Tell us what you need!

Jeffi Hurst

Jeffi was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. After earning her degree in Biochemistry from Seton Hill University, she relocated to Nashville in 2003 and managed a lab within the Center for Integrative and Cognitive Neuroscience at Vanderbilt University, and worked hand-in-hand with PhDs and Veterinarians and subsequently had a front-row seat to some incredible cutting-edge research. Several years later, the concrete walls of the lab were no longer agreeing with her so in 2007 she left Vandy, purchased a farm in Franklin and opened the Green Barn, a horse-boarding facility where her passion for caring for all creatures great and small has continued to bloom. Jeffi has been petsitting professionally for over 10 years and her detail-oriented/animal-loving brain merges perfectly as she enjoys hands-on pet sitting as well as is tasked with managing the entire business, scheduling, billing, etc. Even so, she always jumps at the opportunity to love on even more sweet pets. In her spare time (which isn’t much!) you can find her making kissy faces with her giant blue Great Dane, trotting around the trails at her farm on her Arabian horse, Midnight Tserenade or zooming down the Natchez Trace on her bright yellow Triumph Thunderbird – (usually with the guy pictured below… her husband!)

Brandon Hurst

Brandon is originally from North Canton, OH. He moved to Tennessee after earning his BA degree in Arts and Media Engineering in 2008. Brandon is a gifted recording engineer and musician who has an eye for art of all types: painting, photography, designing, songwriting, woodworking. He owns Franklin Towing, a 24-hour towing and roadside assistance company based in Franklin, TN and is also a licensed emergency medical responder based in Williamson county. Anyone that knows Brandon knows the size of his heart – helping people and rescuing ANY animal in need. Since his involvement with the Green Barn, the farm has grown from horses and dogs – to horses, dogs, pigs, goats, chickens, bunnies and the cutest little donkey ever, who he lovingly named after Jeffi – “JeffD”. Brandon has been working with NWPS for about 6 years and loves pet and farm sitting. When he’s not working at his various jobs, you might catch him at the tattoo shop adding to his collection, on the tractor doing “farm stuff” or scouring the internet looking for more animals he can adopt!

Elizabeth Priddy

A Knoxville native, Elizabeth has called Middle Tennessee her home since 2001. After graduating from the University of Tennessee (go Vols!) with a degree in psychology, she co-managed a large horse farm for a year before moving to Nashville, on a whim, to spread her wings. She began working at a veterinary clinic to fund “said wings” and then found herself accepting a job at Vanderbilt University in the psychology department (where she met JEFFI!) to further her education and find a career path. Because having two jobs clearly wasn’t time consuming enough, Elizabeth also decided to get her masters degree in counseling psychology at that time as well. Animal friends have always been a part of this journey; from horses to fish – she has cared for big and small over 25 years in many different capacities. An avid competitor and horsewoman, Elizabeth owns a private farm in Franklin which she shares with her horses, chickens, dogs and cats as well as her family. She competes in the equestrian discipline of dressage with her horse Gateau and enjoys loving on your pets in between!

Taylor Miller

Taylor, raised in a military family, is from a little bit of everywhere! She finally had a chance to set some roots in Nashville in 2019. Taylor has always been surrounded by animals; from parrots to pigs – she has loved learning about and caring for animals her entire life. When she moved to Nashville, it was her very first time not being surrounded with pets of her own; and boy did she have withdrawals from the furry cuddles! Taylor met and became friends with Jeffi and Brandon who later invited her to work with NWPS. Now she works at both NWPS and Natchez Trace Veterinary Services, and fills her time loving on everyone’s amazing pets – whether in the clinic setting, Jeffi and Brandon’s farm or in our client’s homes! She is currently working as a Veterinary Assistant while going to school to become a licensed Veterinary Technician. When the weather is nice, you might find her out riding her Yamaha motorcycle with Jeffi. Taylor has been dog-walking and pet sitting since she was 10 years old and her love of animals has blossomed into a full-time passion and career.

Abby Batson

Abby is a Tennessee girl – born and bred, so she knows the area like the back of her hand. Having owned animals all of her life, nothing surprises her! She lives on a 100-acre farm, caring daily for livestock, horses, dogs, cats, chickens, ducks and even her family’s pet snake, George!  She’s raised and trained horses and dogs and is comfortable being around all animals, no matter the size or type, and she treats them all as if they’re her own beloved fur-children. Not only a member of NWPS, she is also a farm-hand at the Green Barn and works part time at a local restaurant. When she’s not walking dogs, cleaning stalls or serving slushees – she’s out trail riding with her cherished horse Rain and Blue Heeler Scout, working on art projects or is in pursuit of capturing the perfect photograph.

Katie Curry

After graduating from Franklin High School, Katie started her career in business management but deep down always knew her true passion was working with animals. Eventually she decided to pursue that passion which led her to volunteering and eventually working full-time at her local animal shelter. Experiencing the true joy rescue animals could bring, she decided to further her Vet Med career and became a licensed Veterinary Technician. She currently manages Natchez Trace Veterinary Services. When not spending time with her clinic patients or pet sitting other furry friends you can find her trail riding in her Jeep with her Blue Heeler Beau, curled up reading a good book or hiking at one of Tennessee’s numerous beautiful state parks. Katie’s years of extensive animal care experience make her a huge asset to NWPS.

Libby Smallbone

Originally from Sydney, Australia, Libby moved with her family to the states in the early 1990s. Having lived on a farm most of her life, she has been the primary caregiver of quite the menagerie: dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, horses, donkeys, pigs, sheep, chickens, goats and alpacas! Needless to say, Libby is experienced to handle any job NWPS needs staffed.   She has worked with NWPS for over 10 years and is a compassionate, familiar face to many of our clients. She is an extremely talented and passionate artist, photographer and singer/songwriter as well as an avid horsewoman, having bred and trained several horses from birth to successful careers in showjumping.

Debby Muskar

Debby, originally from Jericho, New York, moved to Northern California in 2011 after meeting her husband, Ryan, a native Californian. After visiting Franklin on vacation in 2016, Debby and Ryan decided that “southern charm” was the real deal and they moved to the area later that year.  Formerly a teacher and administrator in K-12 Education, Debby decided to leave the field to pursue her real passion to work with and care for animals.  As an animal lover all her life, from her first pet, a pied cockatiel, to her childhood family dog and now her three cats, Debby not only works as a pet sitter with NWPS, she also volunteers at the Williamson County Animal Center.  She has a warm and compassionate heart and loves every minute she spends with both pets and rescue animals.

Helen and David Smallbone

Helen and David Smallbone relocated with their 7 children (including Libby!) to Nashville from Australia in 1991. Their entire lives have been dedicated to giving back and serving… people, animals, you name it! After purchasing a hobby farm in Franklin, the Smallbones began to expand their herd to include rescue animals of all shapes and sizes.  Their “herd” now includes their grown children, daughters-in-laws, son-in-laws, several grandchildren and friends, all of which LOVE to come to the farm to help with the daily chores of providing love to all the animals in need. They have been a steady force, working with NWPS for over 10 years.

Paula P.  (Brentwood)
No Worries Pet Sitting is the best. Their company name says it all! You can truly trust them with your pet(s) and have no worries at all. They have done sitting for me many times and I have always come home to happy dogs! They truly fall in love with your pet and treat them like their own! I highly recommend calling them for all your pet needs!

Liz J. (Franklin)
We love No Worries Pet Sitting. We used to board our dog, then scramble for cat & chicken care but NWPS takes care of all of our pets. They are reliable, great with all of our pets and they text us daily to keep us updated. We feel really comfortable knowing they’re going to be there twice a day and they really care about all of our animals. In fact, the first time we used NWPS, a member of the team called me because she was concerned that our lab wasn’t eating much. That was normal but I was impressed that she paid that much attention. I would highly recommend using No Worries Pet Sitting – we’ve been thoroughly satisfied. They are the only ones we would consider calling when we need a pet sitter.

Kathy B. (Franklin)
From the moment I met with NWPS, I realized their love and enthusiasm for all animals… big, small and in between. Their record speaks for itself as they have worked for me routinely for two years. They have an impeccable work ethic. NWPS are dependable, trustworthy, and they genuinely love their work. As a horse and dog owner, I feel so lucky to have found a company that is comfortable juggling multiple animals. They have a keen eye for anything out of the ordinary and will be the first to point out a change in your pets, whether it be medical or behavioral. NWPS is indeed a rare commodity, and I am so glad our paths have crossed.
