See pricing information for approximate pet sitter arrival and departure time.

Are you going away for a weekend, a few days, or even longer? We offer multiple days and week-long pet sitting as well. Whatever your vacation plans are, you can take your time and enjoy, while our expert pet sitters tend to your pet right in their own familiar home and environment.

We will keep your dog or cat on its regular feeding schedule and diet, meaning there’s no special foods or feeding fees to pay for like at a pet boarding service or kennel.

While you’re away, we will provide you with additional vacation in home pet sitting services including:

  • Retrieving the mail or newspaper
  • Rotating your house lights
  • Watering your plants and garden
  • Placing your garbage bin out for pick up
  • Rotating your blinds and curtains
  • Taking your pet to veterinarian appointments
  • Taking your pet for grooming sessions

Your pet won’t suffer from the stress of adjusting to a new environment like staying at a kennel, and also won’t be exposed to the risk of illness from other unfamiliar animals. Your pet will receive our love and attention when pet sitting, such as walks, play time, and snuggling time.

Our years of experience with satisfied pet owners will leave you worry free as you enjoy your vacation. Call our office to discuss your travel plans and the needs for your pets while you’re away.
