Once we have scheduled the In Home Consultation, we will send you a welcome email with the info you’ll need to get registered in our online system, Pet Sitter Plus. This very user-friendly system handles all of our scheduling, invoicing, and storage of all client and pet care details. The more you can get put in by the time we meet the better, but as long as everything is complete by the start of service, we’re good to go!!
**If we are not contracted for work at the time of consultation, a $15.00 administrative fee will be charged.
We can’t wait to meet you!
Midday Dog Walking
Working long hours? We offer walks and outings in the middle of the day throughout the week for dogs in need of exercise and/or relief. It’s unhealthy for dogs to “hold it” all day and it can help dogs with separation anxiety who get destructive if left alone too long.
You may specify a walk, play ball in the yard, snuggle/TLC time, a combination of all etc. 30 minutes is generally adequate for moderately active dogs to less active. For highly active dogs, consider more than one walk a day, one extended walk, a Park Adventure, or an Excursion!
We want you to come home to a happy, well-exercised dog. Each visit is finished out with giving fresh water, a treat you provide if requested, and emailing you a report with picture!
You must consistently have 2 or more days each M-F 10am-3pm scheduled to receive this discounted rate. For less often than that or outside those times, the pet sitting rate will apply.
$20.00 per 30 minute visit
$26.00 per 45 minute visit
$32.00 per one hour visit 1-2 dogs. $3 each additional dog
Select clients will be offered an additional discount for a consistent need at least 4-7 days a week that is programmed into the system ongoing with very minimal changes and cancellations. We especially cater to our elderly clients who need our assistance 7 days a week and our working clients who can commit to a set 4-5 days a week ongoing. Upon invitation the rates are:
$19.00 per 30 minute visit
$25.00 per 45 minute visit
$31.00 per 60 minute visit
In Home Pet Sitting
Do you need to leave town for vacation, business trip, or other obligation or just need a sporadic visit to your dog or cat for a dinner out, day trip etc? We provide as many visits as are needed throughout the day. This allows for a stress free environment for your pet enabling them to adhere to their daily routine. These visits include, first and foremost, lots of love and attention as well as feeding, walking, administering medications, litter box maintenance, and other complimentary household tasks listed below. Whether you have a dog that wants to play fetch in the yard or a cat that wants to snuggle on the sofa, our goal is to be your pets’ 2nd best buddy after you and make them feel as comfortable as possible in your absence!
**Cats must be visited at least once every 24 hrs and dogs at least every 8-10 hrs.
