For dogs who are more comfortable at home, for cats, birds, hamsters, guinea pigs, fish, lizards, turtles, etc., we offer in-home pet sitting services which include:

  • Feeding
  • Providing fresh water
  • Taking for walks
  • Cleaning up (the yard, the litter box, the cage, etc)
  • Watering plants
  • Bringing in the mail and/or packages
  • Concierge services (for an extra fee), such as dropping your pet off and picking them up from the vet or daycare service

We don't base our fee on the number of pets.  It's based on time spent and our basic rate is $20 for up to 30 minutes of care.  For anything over 30 minutes, please contact us. We can stop by as many times per day as you would like.  General is two or three times per day for a dog and once per day for all other pets.  
Our pet sitting staff is fully insured and has been trained in pet first aid.  We will provide a FREE consult so that we learn about you and your pets prior to the first visit.
