About The Buddies
Meet owner and pet care professional Rebecca Cormier and her dog Buddy. The Buddies was founded on the principal of caring for your pets like one of the family. Rebecca always had a hard time leaving Buddy (her 7 year old Pomeranian) behind whenever she went on a trip. So, she came up with the idea of a mobile pet care business that offers customized services to meet your pets needs and make your time away from home stress free.
Rebecca was born and raised in Manchester, NH. In 2003 she had her first pet, a cat named Purrkins who was a rescue from the Manchester Animal Shelter. She always had a love and passion for animals but while in High School her passion grew more. In 2013 she adopted a 3 month old Pomeranian from the Manchester Animal Shelter and her passion and love grew stronger for animals. His original name was Chuck Beary but was renamed to Buddy. Buddy was more than just a pet, he is part of the family. But sadly there are those times when Buddy could not attend vacations, long beach days, long ski days or even long work days. She would always worry and stress when he had to be left alone, and found it difficult to hire someone the family could trust in their home and with their fur baby, Buddy. It was also an inconvenience to others for when they would ask neighbors or family members to help and let him out to potty & play. In 2014 she began to work at various kennels and doggy daycare facilities in New Hampshire. She then knew she wanted to dedicate all her time to ensuring pets got the love and care they deserve for when their owners have to be at work or away. In 2019 she graduated from Plymouth State University with her Bachelor Degree in Business Management with a concentration in small business/entrepreneurship and a minor in professional communication. Loaded with passion and with 5 years of pet care experience, The Buddies LLC was established in July 2019. Rebecca became a proud member of Pet Sitter’s International (PSI) in 2019 which is the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters.
Through PSI she was able to earn her title “Certified Professional Pet Sitter” (CPPS) by studying and learning more about what it means to be a professional and also being able to provide exceptional care for pets. In 2020 Rebecca was able to earn her Pet First Aid & CPCR for Pet-Care Professionals. The Buddies is also insured through Business Insurers of the Carolinas.
What Makes Us Stand Out
We are a mobile pet care business, so we come to you! Daycare & kennels are not for all dogs, like humans, dogs have preferences too and that is okay! Some dogs are more comfortable in their home environment which is why we offer in home overnight care! We will gladly curl up in bed with your fur baby while you relax on vacation knowing your fur baby is in good hands. We also offer dog walking/ drop in visits, cat care, seasonal hikes & pet taxi services. For more details on these services please visit our service page. We require a free meet & greet for all new clients. Why? So we can introduce ourselves, meet you and your pets, learn a little bit about their routine and discuss what type of visit will best suit them! We customize each visit because no dog is the same, some are high energy while some like cuddles and some just love to play fetch. Either way we always make sure your dog goes potty, water bowl freshen, gets a treat and is treated with love & care like they are our own. We always send updates & photos to you and we strive for honesty. If we see something that seems out of the ordinary we will alert you right away. We have an online client portal so you can easily schedule appointments, keep your information and your pets information fully up to date, pay online and receive visit report cards on completion of each visit. We also accept checks or cash as well.
