Which Service Is Best for Your Pet?
As pack animals, dogs desire and require company and attention. They thrive in their own familiar environment, complete with the sounds, smells, and sights they are used to. In addition, most dogs get the majority of their human bonding time at night when the folks are home. We think dogs are are safest and happiest with night time companionship. For your special canine friends, our staycations are the option they deserve. Other animals prefer the stability of their home life, too. Having a pet sitter stay in your home is the best option to provide your pet with the comfort and security he needs to thrive while you’re away. Our premium pet sitting services are designed to keep your pet’s routine as close to normal as possible while providing all the fun and excitement of having a house guest to keep them entertained.

Unlike dogs, some animals are more solitary and don’t require as much company and attention when you’re away. These include cats that dart under the bed at the sound of any stranger and the rabbit that goes about her business when you get home without batting an eyelash.
We want these pet babies to be just as content as our canine clients, but we know it might not take quite as much time commitment to accomplish this. Under these circumstances, we’re happy to stop by and visit your cats, birds, fish, and other indoor pets. We’ll make sure they have fresh food and water, a little TLC, and keep their supplies, litter boxes, and habitats nice and tidy.
What are the benefits of pet sitting?
Your pet family needs rest and relaxation, and other options like boarding or daycare facilities are noisy and stressful. With the constant barking and uncertainty of a foreign environment, boarded dogs are often deprived of rest. And these facilities only give pups minimal scheduled walks and attention, not to mention the hassle of extra vaccines, the possibility of illness, and the loneliness at the end of the afternoon when the staff goes home.
In addition to feeling like the king or queen of the castle, your pet will enjoy
- going out to potty anytime they want (with staycation option)
- being fed at their normal meal schedule, in the setting they are used to
- receiving plenty of individual attention from our sitters
- quiet time to snooze in the comfort of their own beds
- someone present, in case of emergency
- avoiding the possibility of contagious illnesses
- not getting stuck with a needless needle: avoiding extra vaccinations (many boarding facilities require Bordetella every 6 months)
