We stay in YOUR home (if you choose) which allows your animals to be in their own environment where they have the security, comfort and familiarity of their own smells and surroundings. You won’t have to worry about your pet contracting fleas or kennel cough which can happen in boarding facilities, and you know your pet will be safe and well cared for by a professional who gives all the one-one-one attention your pet needs and deserves.
Upon consultation, I will help you complete an application that will help me get to know all the pertinent information about caring for your loved ones. I will also ask you to fill out a contact form so I am able to reach you while you are away.
Complimentary services included with pet sitting include:
– Administering medications
– Watering your plants
– Take the garbage and recycling out on days of collection
– Collect your mail and newspapers
– Turn lights off and on to assist home security
– Poo pick up in the yard
– Your house spotless when we leave
– All linens and dishes will be clean when you arrive home
– Upon request, daily email updates (please note that I am unable to respond to more than 1 email per day because I need to keep my attention on your pets instead of the computer)
Check out time is TEN AM, any visits needed after this time will be charged the daily drop in fee.
Please ensure that you can give plenty of notice to book you in. My calendar usually gets filled a year in advance! Thank you!
