FAQ
In many ways, our pets are like kids in any daycare. They like routine, they are more relaxed
when they know when they will be fed, played with and exercised.

 








Why use a pet sitter?
Pets are happier & healthier in their own home environment.
Eliminates trauma for your pet of being left in an unfamiliar place.
Eliminates the hassles of transporting your pet to and from a kennel.
Your family, friends or neighbors will not be inconvenienced by your pet and the additional responsibilities.
Gives you peace of mind, knowing that a professional is caring for your pet, and your house will be looked after while you're away.

How does your service work?
We will set up a complimentary appointment to visit you and your pet in your home. The earliest notice provided will help ensure the best scheduling for the customer. During the visit, we will interact with your pet, complete the paperwork, ask pertinent questions (vet & emergency contact info), become familiar with your pets routines, and gladly answer any questions you may have. The appointment takes approximately 30-45 minutes and by the time it's over you will have the complete confidence that your pets will be well cared for while you're away by a competent and trustworthy professional.

Each pet sitting visit includes feeding, fresh water, TLC, exercise and/or play and giving any required medications to your pet. At no additional charge we will also bring in the mail and newspapers, turn off or on your porch light, take out garbage on your trash day, open and close the curtains and blinds, bring in unexpected flyers, phone books, packages, etc. especially those during the holiday season.

When booking, you will be contacted a few days prior to your vacation (or other reason) to confirm dates and to ensure follow up on your return.
