Pomoting your pet's well-being through touch

Pet Sitting

Pet sitting visits can be once a day, twice a day or more.  They are scheduled to accommodate the needs of your pet.  Each 30 minute visit is $20.

I also offer extended visits of 45 minutes at a rate of $30 per visit.

Pet sitting visits include the basics of feeding and putting out fresh water. Plus brushing, petting, playtime and lots of attention.  


House Sitting

House sitting are overnight visits that are great for pets that don't like being left alone for long periods.  This service also gives your house a lived in look and can be a deterrent to crime.  I spend the 12 hour period from 7 pm to 7 am - plenty of time for play and to give your pets lots of attention.  The rate is $60/night.  If additional visits are needed throughout the day, for example a mid-day break or a dinner visit prior to the 7 pm arrival the normal pet sitting rates apply.  They are in addition to the overnight charge.


Dog Walking

Several dog walking options are available . Choose the one that best suits your pet's needs.

  • Potty break - a quick outside trip to answer the call of nature.  Typical visits last 10 minutes and do not include a walk.  The rate is $10/visit.
  • A 20 minute walk @ $15/walk provides just the right amount of time for a jaunt around the neighborhood to help your dog get some exercise and relieve the boredom that can occur during a long day at home while you're at work.
  • A 30 minute walk @ $20/walk might be just the answer for your active dog.  There's plenty of time to walk around the block, plus maybe get in a little extra playtime in the backyard.  
Walks are generally scheduled Monday - Fridays.  They're a great way to provide a your dog(s) with a break, get some exercise and enjoy a little company while you're at work.
