The benefits of pet sitting –
for your pets and your peace of mind
- Your pets get to stay in the comfort of their own homes. A lot of people don’t want to send their pet to a kennel during a vacation, where animals can experience anxiety. Others are also uncomfortable leaving their home empty while they’re away.
- Your pets will be cared for by experienced, caring sitters who will spend significant time with them. Our pet sitters can spend the night with your pets in your house, or make multiple visits throughout the day and night while you’re away.
What We Offer
Care for your dog, cat, rabbit or other pets. While you’re away from home, one of our licensed and bonded pet sitters can stay at the house or make frequent visits to properly care for all your pets and give them plenty of love and attention.
Keeping up daily routines. We can walk, feed, give medications, play with, and care for your pets in the same daily routine that they are used to, giving them lots of love and attention. While there, we can also bring in your mail, open and close curtains, take out the trash and return the empty cans to their usual spots. We can turn lights and sprinklers on and off, and water indoor plants.
Frequent visits. While you’re away, we can have someone come to your home for visits that last 15 minutes, 30 minutes or one hour. For the sake of continuity, we try to match your pet’s established schedule for food and walks; just tell us your pet sitting preferences.
Overnights. Our pet sitters will spend the night in your house, usually for a 12-hour window depending on the day – for instance between 7 p.m.-7 a.m. Some people prefer this option, with an additional 15-, 30-, 45-, or 60-minute visit mid day.
Got Questions? We’ve got answers…
For visits only, cats should be visited at least once a day, and dogs should be visited at least three times a day. With overnight pet sitting, we recommend at least one check-in visit during the day for both dogs and cats.
We will arrange a meeting to introduce you to your pet sitter before your trip, and work with you to create your client profile, which will contain information such as your contact information, emergency contact information, your veterinarian’s contact info, and the specific care that your pets need.
We will make every effort for that to happen – the more advance notice you can provide, the more likely we can accommodate your wishes.
Yes, we can care for all your pets, including fish, when you’re away, as long as you give us specific instructions for each pet.
