And Away You Go! was established by Gary Braden in 2015 to help meet the needs of people who have busy lives or travel for business or pleasure. Your pets are an important part of your life. You want to provide the very best care for them and ensure they are safe, even when you can't be there. At And Away You Go! we understand this. We will meet them on their level and interact with them, whether that means playing, walking, cuddling, or just talking to them. We will maintain their routines as much as possible, to keep them happy, healthy, and safe in your home.
And Away You Go! is a member in good standing of Pet Sitters International. As a member, we have the latest information, education and a worldwide network of professional pet sitters available to us. We are insured and bonded by Binks Insurance Brokers Limited, the leading insurance broker in the pet sitting industry. And Away You Go! Pet & Home Sitting Services is registered to conduct business in Manitoba.
Gary decided to start And Away You Go! when he realised how difficult it was to find responsible, professional people to look after our pets and homes when we couldn't be there. Gary has had and sat pets for over 20 years and is currently the shepherd of a cat and a dog. He has dealt with many personalities and situations over the years, gaining experience from each new contact. His unassuming personality has allowed him to quickly build bonds with many animals, even those which are picky about the people they trust.
Gary believes in continuous learning. During his career he has attained three professional business designations, including the Certified Professional Pet Sitter accreditation provided by Pet Sitters International, completed Pet First Aid/CPR training, and attends seminars and webinars.
