Meet The Team

My name is Susan Kaplan and I am the owner of BeLoved Pet Sitting. I majored in Criminal Justice and minored in Business Administration with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship in 2013 from SDSU. I opened shop in 2010 at the ripe age of 18, right after I graduated high school because I saw a need in our city. I absolutely adore the work I do and I can’t think of a better way to spend my workday than with the affection of pets.

I run my company with employees because I am very diligent and hands on. What makes my company unique is that I am allowed to train my team unlike 99% of the other companies in San Diego who hire temporary independent contractors. Independent contractor sitters are anyone off the street who wants to work, like Uber for dog walking. Companies that hire contractors like Wag! & Rover are not legally allowed to train or monitor the sitters for quality control like we do.

For your peace of mind, my employees are covered by workers compensation, bonded, insured and background checked. Your pet sitter was hand trained by me for at least 2 weeks and shadowed all jobs with me before I let them go pet sit alone for the first time. They also work through a 12 course online video class about pet sitting which covers everything from pet first aid to animal behavior modification.

Finally, they agree to the terms of our extensive handbook which covers all of the protocols they are expected to follow with regards to customer service, pet care, and home care. It’s true, we cost a couple of dollars more than hiring the kid next door, but peace of mind is priceless and that’s what I personally offer you.

Hi, I'm Teri Burgi. I am a military spouse, mother to 4 amazing kids and lots of different pets over the years. We are an animal loving family and over the years have had dogs, snakes, lizards, ferrets, tortoises and fish. Charlie Brown, our chocolate lab, loves to go camping and hiking with us.
