Private Dog Walks
This popular service gets your dog out for a walk and some fresh air when work schedules or day trips keep your pup home alone for far too long. Handicapped or homebound pet owners may also find this service especially helpful. Visits last a minimum of 30 minutes and walks can be adjusted to whatever length your dog is comfortable with. Play time and water bowl checks are included with every visit.
Pet Sitting Overnight In-Your-Home
Pets are most comfortable in their own surroundings. That's why this service is geared to keep things as routine as possible while you travel. Your pets will gets lots of attention, walks, and companionship beginning in the early evening and through to the following morning. Overnights also include a midday visit to make sure everything is OK. We'll also water your plants, take out the trash, check doors and windows, clean the cat litter box, and get the mail.
We will keep a log of our visits so you know how things went every day or we can send you daily text messages so you can keep in touch with them and know that all is well.
Puppies, Seniors & Special Needs
Puppies and senior dogs have different needs. A robust walk may not be right for them but they may need a potty break or just a friendly visit to make sure everything is okay. These visits are shorter and intended to prevent "accidents." Our puppy went through eight pairs of shoes because he had way too much time on his paws and no supervision. So we know what that's like. Then, when he got older, a long walk was too much for him. So short little walks and light play were enough before it was back to nap time. If your pup or kitty has a unique special need we can work with you to come up with a custom plan to ensure your peace of mind and their comfort.
Cats, Birds, Fish & Small Pet Visits
This service entails checking in on your pet, cleaning out litter boxes and/or bird cages, feeding, water check and play time. Time spent depends on what needs to be done. If a cat is skittish with strangers and doesn't want to play or cudddle, we'll just check to make sure everything is fine and continue on with our chores. Birds can be fun and interactive, so we'll take care to match our attention to their needs. Most importantly we'll follow your instructions as to what needs to be done.
