*Please note this price is per visit, not per day.

Each standard visit includes fresh food and water for your pet, cleaning of litter boxes/cages or access to the outdoors for a potty break, exercise, and plenty of love and attention. The exercise will generally be a walk for dogs, play with favorite toys for kitties, or other activities as appropriate to your pets.

The number of times your pets are visited each day depends on the type of pets. To tailor our services to you and your pets we have a variety of options to choose from.

One Visit Per Day This is the minimum number of visits per day for many pets such as cats, birds, hamsters, reptiles, and other small caged animals. Visits will be made at approximately the same time each day.
Two Visits Per Day This is the minimum number of visits per day for dogs and is available for all pets. Visits will be made approximately 12 hours apart.
Three Visits Per Day Available for all pets. Visits will be made in the morning, mid-day, and the evening.
Four Visits Per Day Extra 30 minute visits available by request for pets with special needs.
Quick Checks Available by request when visits are scheduled two times or more each day. Quick checks are 10-15 minute visits for dogs that need a quick potty break at some point during he day. Quick Checks will be charged at a rate of $10 per visit.
Fish Feeding These visits are designed for clients who need fish fed and house looked after but don't have pets that need to be exercised. Fish feeding visits are charged at a rate of $10 per 10-15 minute visit and may be scheduled without any other daily visits. Minimum one visit per day.

Our pet sitting clients may also use our transportation services while they are at work or just need help getting their pet to the right place at the right time.

Please let your vet or groomer know that we will be picking up or dropping off your pet. You will also want to make arrangements for your payment in advance with them. Rates for pet transportation are:

Don't Take Our Word For It!

Here's what our clients have to say about our services:

"[My dog] wouldn't be the dog he is now if it weren't for your training, care, and love."

"We feel very blessed to have found someone who we have complete trust and confidence in. [Our dogs] are very important members of our family, and having someone take care of them is not a decision we make lightly."
