How it Works

Schedule a Consultation

We’ll come to your home, meet your pet(s) and answer all your questions. We’ll discuss your pet’s needs and review all our policies.

Request Appointments

Setting up dog walking and pet sitting is convenient. We accept appointment requests via phone, text or email.

Start Walks

Pets are our passion. Our dog walkers and pet sitters are friendly, professional and most of all, they LOVE animals. All walkers are insured, bonded and background checked.

What Pet Owners Are Saying

David C.

Thank you, John and Shannon, for taking such good care of Destiny! She connected with you guys quickly and it is so obvious upon our return home that she enjoyed her time with you!  You guys are great and we feel blessed to have your service and support in Destiny’s life and therefore our life too! Surf City is so lucky to have you! I highly recommend these guys!

Samantha C.

John and Shannon remain our go-to pup team here in Topsail. Not only are they super responsive, they are also well organized. It’s hurricane season in these parts and they’re fantastic about watching the weather and keeping pet parents in the loop. Wouldn’t trust anyone else with our dog and still highly, highly recommend their services!

Brooks G.

Surf Sitters are everything we could have asked for in a dog sitter. John and Shannon will bend over backwards to take care of my fur baby and are always flexible if I have a last minute change. They will help with any training you are trying to reinforce and treat your animals as their own loved ones. We love Surf Sitters!

What's Included

Food and Water

Food and treats are always provided free of charge upon request. We always give your pet fresh water before leaving.

Report Card

After every service, your pet sitter fills out a report card so you know exactly what we did together and that nothing was overlooked.

Love and Affection

When you’re not home, we make sure your pets get plenty of exercise, belly rubs, butt scratches and snuggles.

Surf City's Best Pet Care

Since 2015 Surf Sitters Pet Care and Dogwalking has been providing professional pet sitting and dog walking services in Hampstead, Holly Ridge, and Surf City, NC. We are a small team of professional dog walkers and pet sitters ready to serve you and your pets 365 days a year. We bring fun and happy energy to your pets’ days when you can’t be home.

Our goal is to build a friendship with your pets that will last a life time so that you will never need to worry about your pets’ care again! Once we establish a relationship with you, you’ll rest easy knowing that your dog or cat has a reliable, well-trained team of friends who are familiar with their feeding and care routine, their personalities, likes, dislikes, favorite potty spots, games, treats, best walking routes, allergies, medication protocols, and above all, how to give a good belly rub and ear scratch

Surf Sitters Pet Care and Dogwalking team members are bonded, insured, Pet CPR/First Aid trained, and also receive additional safety training with Sandra Harknett of Purrfect Pooches Dog Training in Sneads Ferry. Our employees receive training in canine body language and how human body language can be perceived by pets, correct use of collars and harnesses, how to safely avoid and manage interactions with stray or off-leash dogs, and more. For your peace of mind, our sitters’ visits are GPS tracked.

How does it work? Easy! Give us a call to schedule a Meet and Greet. At the meet and greet, we’ll get to know your furry loved ones, learn their routine, and create an ideal visit/walk schedule for them. Depending on your preference, you’ll receive a text or journal update to let you know what kind of fun we had at each visit!
