pet care

with the


of home


you could say that We're a pretty lovable bunch...

 For most people, pets are part of the family. We get that. That's why every time we visit your home, we treat your pets like our own pets - whether they're dogs or cats, birds or horses, iguanas or pot-bellied pigs, and more!

Sitting Pretty provides in-home pet care in the Auburn/Opelika area of Alabama. Our higher standards mean better care for your pets and less worry for you when you're away from home. Our services include pet sitting, full-time home boarding (in our homes) and dog walking. Our services are licensed, bonded, insured and easily customized, and we use a 10-Point Pet Care Checklist that we firmly abide by. Considering pet care services?

see what past and present clients are saying about sitting pretty


This pet sitting service is the best around. You can leave town and feel completely assured that your pet's needs are met with a well trained and competent staff. The fact they also secure your house as well is also a plus. My cat was happy and healthy after their visit. They update you daily with photos and a brief email about the visit. Wonderful service hands down!

Katrina, Ashley, and staff are amazing! I am so thankful for them. They let my dogs out every day during the week because I work out of town. It is such a blessing that I don't have to wonder if they are coming or not. They are super dependable and extremely professional. I really look forward to getting the email with a picture of my dogs every day during their visit. I would rate them 10 out of 10 if that was an option!
