Services & Rates
In Home Pet Sitting:
A professional pet sitter will visit your pet s in their home to give them personalized attention and maintain their daily routine. Your pet sitter can even administer medication if needed. Each visit is 20-30 minutes for cats and 30 minutes minimum for dogs. Your pet sitter can visit 1-4 times per day depending on your pet’s particular needs.

In addition to looking after your pet’s needs, we also provide added home security by bringing in mail and newspapers, alternating lights, raising and lowering blinds, and watering thirsty plants.

The Registration Meeting:
Our new client registration meeting allows you and your pets to meet and get to know your pet sitter prior to your departure. Your pets will feel more at ease in your absence having seen you and your pet sitter together, and you will feel more at ease leaving your pets in the care of someone you have met. This meeting is the same price as a single visit to your household.

Overnight Pet Care:   (More...)
For those pets who need more attention than our pet sitting visits provide, we offer overnight pet care. A professional pet sitter will stay in your home overnight to provide the added companionship he/she needs. Click here to download our Overnight Pet Care Addendum.

Bed & Biscuit Care:   (More...)
Your dog will stay in the loving home of one of our professional pet sitters. Your dog will enjoy the comforts of a home environment, not a noisy, stressful kennel. Dogs must be people, dog, and child friendly with no history of aggression. Click here to download our Bed & Biscuit Addendum.
