PET SITTING


 

Your pets, your home – pet care your way.

Experience the comfort and peace of mind that comes from using our pet sitting services provided in your home. We provide care for pets of all shapes and sizes from dogs and cats, birds and fish to potbellied pigs and reptiles.

Your pets will receive personalized and individualized care in their home environment. No kennels, concrete, strange smells or pets that can cause your pet to be anxious or fearful. With online scheduling, payments and a phone app to access your account on the go, it is easy to update your pet’s care information and request a reservation. Keep an eye on your pets while you are away using our "Wi-Fi cameras" (with two-way audio and night vision!) and take advantage of our complimentary services to ensure that you can return home and resume life without skipping a beat.

During each visit your pets will have our undivided attention where we focus exclusively on them whether they need outside exercise, inside playtime or a calm companion. We will provide them with fresh food and water, medications as needed, perform a property security check, and perform any

of our complimentary services that you may need (bring in the mail/packages, garbage receptacle put out to curb, refill bird feeders, water plants, etc.).

After every visit you will receive a complimentary visit report by email or through our app that includes GPS confirmation that we were with your pets during the scheduled visit, pictures of your pets enjoying their visit with us and notes on all the fun activities that occurred during their visit. We offer varied visit lengths to accommodate the activity level and social needs of every pet and can schedule visits up to four times per day (we offer overnight care too!).

Visits can be scheduled between the hours of 6 AM and 9 PM, 7 days a week.  Visits are scheduled in 2-hour time blocks (ex. Between 6-8 AM or 6-8 PM). Puppies, senior pets and pets that require medications like insulin, can be scheduled with a shorter time range.

dog walking


 

Take back your lunch break! Let us stop by and walk your dog so you don't have to (now available for second shift too!). Is your puppy still having accidents inside while you are at work? Does Fido destroy property while you are gone and have boundless energy when you get home? Was your pet recently diagnosed with an illness or prescribed medication that causes incontinence? Is your pet overweight, experiencing joint pain or just not as happy and active as they used to be? Our dog walking services are here to help!

We can schedule you and your dog(s) for individual or regularly scheduled dog walking visits to fit your work schedule. During each visit, we will take your dog(s) on a walk around your neighborhood or have playtime in the back yard, followed by fresh water, lots of belly rubs and ear scratches. Your dog(s) are never walked with other client's dogs at the same time or allowed to come into contact with people and pets outside your household. Your pets will always receive our undivided attention each and every visit. We will also perform a property security check during each visit and can bring in any packages delivered during the day.

After every visit you will receive a complimentary visit report by email or through our app that includes GPS confirmation that we were with your dog(s) during the scheduled visit, GPS route tracking of our walk with your dog, pictures of them enjoying their visit with us and notes on all the fun activities they enjoyed with us. We offer two visit lengths to accommodate the activity level and social needs of every dog, young or old.

Our dog walking services are offered at several different membership plans that can accommodate your every need. Look at the following chart to determine which membership fits you and your needs the best. Additional walks may be purchased at the same price point as the membership plan you are currently registered for.

Our once daily dog walking services fit best with dogs that are 6 months of age or older due to their need for bathroom relief less frequently.

home boarding


 

Do you love the idea of boarding your pet but hate taking them out of your home environment? Does your pet have severe anxiety or medical issues that require your pet to be constantly supervised? Our home boarding service combines the ease of boarding your pets off-site with the comfort of pet sitting in your home. Our home boarding services take place in one of our boarding specialist's private homes where your pets will receive one-on-one care in a home environment free from a "kennel" atmosphere. You may choose from homes that are dog only, cat only, small pet only or mixed species homes (pending current availability). Schedule your pet's stay with us online using our client portal, it takes just seconds to make a reservation with your favorite boarding specialist.

All of our boarding specialists are thoroughly screened and background checked and they have agreed to abide by these standards of care, which includes but are not limited to:

-Maintaining liability insurance coverage to protect you and your pets

cat sitting


 

Does your cat hate boarding and come home cranky and tired? Do you want your cat to receive lots of individualized care while you are away instead of being left alone in a metal cage? Does your cat dislike being confined to a kennel, cage, or single room? Let your fancy feline be the star of the show when you book this service. We specialize in providing care for felines with all types of personalities, from Sassy Sally who waits for us at the door, impatiently meowing for us to attend her, to Meek Molly who hides under the bed and waits for us to leave her in peace and quiet.

Your cat will enjoy staying in their home environment free from external stressors that include being confined to a small boarding kennel, the sights and sounds of many other strange cats, and having to use litter boxes and food/water bowls they aren't familiar with. Our pet care associates will keep your cat entertained with lots of playtime, or we can calmly check on them and then sit nearby without interacting and calm them with soothing vocal tones by reading them a storybook if they don't want to come out and play. We never force your cat to interact with us and adapt to their comfort level to ensure they are happy, healthy and stress free.

During each visit your cat will have our undivided attention and we will follow their normal mealtime routine, clean out litter boxes daily and check over your house for any accidents or hairballs so that you come back to a cat and a home that is as fresh as when you left it. We can also administer medications as needed, will perform a property security check each visit, and perform any of our complimentary services that you may need (bring in the mail/packages, garbage receptacle put out to curb, refill bird feeders, water plants, etc.).

After every visit you will receive a complimentary update by email or text that includes GPS confirmation that we were with your cat during the scheduled visit, a picture of your cat enjoying their visit with us and notes on all the fun activities that occurred during their visit. We offer varied visit lengths to accommodate the activity level and social needs of every cat and can schedule visits up to four times per day (we offer overnight care too!).

Clients that book more than one visit per day with us can schedule visits anytime between the hours of 6 AM and 9 PM, 7 days a week. Visits are scheduled in 2-hour time blocks (ex. Between 6-8 AM or 6-8 PM). Clients that elect to have only one visit per day will have the visit scheduled for 2 PM to 8 PM. Cats that require medications like insulin can be scheduled with a shorter time range.

To avoid these last-minute booking fees, make your holiday reservations more than 2 weeks prior to the given holiday.
