About Us

PSO Headshots_19 web versionA NEW WAY TO LIFE Pet Services and Education was launched in 2004. Building a model pet sitting business these last 11 years was a no-brainer for us. It “came to be” because of our affection of four-leggeds and our personal struggle in finding personalized quality care when we had to be away.

The upshot, we chose to offer an alternative to an unfamiliar kennel where your pet is too often “in storage” and at risk. Believing that pets deserve “the very best,” we pledge to give them the love and affection they are used to. That gives your pet a harbor of comfort and you the peace of mind in knowing they will be in their own home, with a routine and surroundings that assures well being. How does it get any better than that?

We spend quality time with your pet(s), give them exercise and watch for signs that your companion may need veterinary care. If requested we provide overnight stays. What’s more, we offer additional services, such as bringing in mail and newspapers, watering plants, turnLisa teach 2ing lights on and off, and providing your home with that “lived-in look.”

Each of us is college educated; Pet First Aid and CPR certified. We are life-long animal enthusiasts. Lisa has experience working at veterinary hospitals and shelters, is a long-time corporate trainer and now a Pet Tech™ Master Instructor of CPR, First Aid & Care for cats and dogs. Kathy is committed to writing, marketing and business development. Nowadays we have Ernie B, a Chesapeake Bay retriever, and Hillary R. a rescued orange tabby cat named for her “spunk and attitude.” Our 4-leggeds are “full partners and guides” in A New Way to Life Pet Services and Education. We are an exceptional choice on behalf of Pets and their People; our service philosophy, “When Only the Best Will Do.”
