Most veterinarians recommend dogs of all ages receive 30 minutes of moderate exercise daily and some dogs need more. Using our Daily Dog Walking service gives you peace of mind that your best friend gets the exercise and attention he needs every day consistently. Scheduling afternoon visits helps to break up the monotony of a long day alone for your dog and our updates gives you the peace of mind things are fine at home. A regular mid-day visit also gives your dog the routine he loves, including potty time, play time, exercise walk, fresh water, training games and more. We understand having a pet is almost a full time job in and of itself and with today’s ultra busy schedules you may need a little help to be a good doggie parent. With our service you’ll come home to a more relaxed and content pet. Plus, you don’t need worry about rushing home right away after work or on your lunch break to make sure he gets out. You could even stop on the way home from work do some shopping or run an errand 🙂

Scheduling afternoon visits helps to break up the monotony of a long day alone for your dog. We understand having a pet is a full time job in and of itself and a puppy is even more time consuming plus with today’s busy schedules you may need a little help to be a good doggie parent.
Puppies need to be let out more often then an adult dog. A simple rule of thumb is puppies can hold it for 1 hour + 1 hour for every month they are old. Ex: a 5 month old puppy should only hold his bladder for about 6 hours max. If left alone too long they may relieve themselves in your home or their crate which makes potty training that much more difficult. They are also more prone to suffer from separation anxiety. This can encourage bad attention-getting behavior like excessive barking/whining, jumping on you, and even “marking their territory” inside your home and once they learn to do these things it is very hard to correct. Contact us today and see how we can help your puppy 🙂
Vacation / Out of town service – $20 and up – These are 30 minute ($20), 45 minute ($24-$26) & 60 minute ($32) visits, which you can mix and match. This service is for any type of pet; dogs, cats, birds, fish, small caged pets, and exotics. An insured/bonded sitter will come to your home to feed, water, and exercise/play with your pets. We’ll do a safety check of the house and look for any pet-related accidents, cleaning up if needed. We’ll bring in the mail and paper, water plants, and adjust house lighting to give it a “lived in” look. If a pet requires medication or other medical treatment, we will administer those at the times needed. We leave a detailed note on each visit, and send at least one text update daily.
Letting your pet stay at home when you’re gone helps ensure a happy, healthy pet. Your pet avoids the stress of a kennel: constant noise of other animals, cramped living spaces or cages, possibly fearful car ride, and even communicable diseases. Instead, your pet receives personalized attention while staying in the environment they are most comfortable, at home. You also save time and money; no drive to or from the kennel; no extra vaccinations are required. With one pet the price is comparable to a kennel stay. With multiple pets you can actually save money and have happier pets that don’t have to be separated from one another. Plus we don’t charge extra for play time, walks, or treats.
If the out-of-town service is for cats the minimum is 1 visit per 24 hours. Includes daily litter box cleaning.
If the out-of-town service is for dogs then the minimum number of visits is 3 per day/24 hours. Some clients book 4x per day. You can also book overnights – see below.
Overnight stays – $75 per night – We stay with your pet, overnight in your home, from approximately 10 p.m. until 8 a.m. If our schedule allows we may arrive earlier and/or leave later. Overnight stays are great for pets who need extra attention or medical care whether due to recent surgery, illness, or separation anxiety, or just to provide a little extra pampering while you are away. Though we try to give your pets as much care and love as possible during our normal visits, we understand some pets need more, and having a loving caregiver stay the night can greatly reduce the impact of your absence. Your pets receive lots of extra attention and play time, making for a happier and healthier pet! Amd if they are accustomed to sleeping with someone, we don’t mind 🙂
In Our Home Boarding – $48 per day – Best service for a well-socialized dog who likes to play and enjoys the security of human and canine company in a real home all day long. Click here for more information on “In Our Home Boarding”
