What is Pet Sitting? https://www.petsit.com/owners

My PET SITTING VISITS are functional and fun, with lots of TLC and belly rubs. I feed, and potty break your pup and we take a short walk. You’ll get video and a time stamped report. No weekly minimum, and last minute requests usually accommodated.

When you may need Pet Sitting Visits:

  • Puppy and dog potty breaks, feeding and exercise.
  • You work away from home
  • You want to take a day trip
  • Vacations
  • Senior pet care

OVERNIGHT PET SITTING in your home is great for pets who experience separation anxiety, are aged, ill or don’t like being alone. I work hard to make your pet comfortable and happy while you’re away! THIS PREMIUM SERVICE INCLUDES A MID-DAY WALK AND TEN HOURS OVERNIGHT WITH YOUR DOG. Most companies charge extra for Mid-Day walks. Your pets are given extra TLC and walks so they miss you less and enjoy their time with me. We play, cuddle and they sleep where they want, after all its their home!

Why Overnight Pet Sitting’s a good option for pets.

  • Travel trauma for pets and owners is eliminated.
  • Some dogs are more comfortable and less stressed in their own home
  • Daily routines can be maintained in the comfort of the home.
  • Your home is more secure while I’m staying there

DOG WALKING for individual dogs, with no weekly minimum. I offer individual walks and devote 100% of my attention to your dog. These are enjoyable walks, at the preferred pace of the dog. My dog clients love our time together, I guarantee it!

  • Reduces stress when you come home to a calmer dog.
  • Lightens your schedule; you won’t need to rush home to walk the dog.
