Kirkwood dog sitter puts pet parent at ease
St. Louis Angie’s List member Elaine Rodemacher knew she found the right person to watch her precious pets while away for the weekend, when the dogs took to Charla Wewers, owner of highly rated Pampered Pets Patrol of Kirkwood, Missouri.
“She sat down on the floor with my two dogs, Chloe and Jimi, and was immediately covered with puppy love,” Rodemacher says.
Rodemacher says she called Pampered Pets Patrol after reading positive reviews on Angie’s List.

During that first meeting, it was evident that Wewers loves her jobs, Rodemacher says. As the two discussed the details, such as the number of visits Pampered Pets Patrol will make, giving Jimi his medication and turning on house lights at different times of the day to thwart a potential home invasion, Rodemacher says she felt at ease.
“She told me which visits she would do herself and that another trusted employee would do one visit that she wasn’t available for,” Rodemacher says. “I consider that good business. I wouldn’t have known the difference, but she let me know upfront.”
While away on her trip, Rodemacher says she received pictures from every visit. She appreciated those pictures because it let her know her dogs were OK and it provided a time stamp so she knew the time of the visit.
“She took better pictures of my dogs than I have,” Rodemacher says. “I have a good phone and camera, but my little dogs are always looking away or down, or have red devil eyes when I do it.”
