Mid Day Potty Break Walks

Rates start at $25 each visit unless booking and prepaying monthly for 5 visits a week (22 visits per month)  then we apply a 10% discount.  Mileage may apply at $1.75 per mile, Holiday charge may apply.

This discounted rate only applies when a month to month contract is signed. 6-12 month is ideal.

For Dogs Only

Unless you have a cat that needs insulin. This is a service that breaks the day up for dogs that are home alone for 7 hours or more. If you work long hours and may try to use your lunch break to run home or if you just cannot come home in the middle of the day, this service is for you. Maybe your dog just needs more exercise. We come to your house and spend 20 minutes walking your dog or letting them out of the crate and letting them relieve themselves outside. Holding “it” for 6, 8 or longer hours damages their kidney’s and it my not show now but when they get older it will. Does not apply to out of town clients.

*Injections and/or Subcutaneous Shot/Fluids are small additional charge $5. For household pets only.

Overnight Pet Sitting in Your Home

Rate is $160.00 per night.   Includes most services listed above plus a professional pet care specialist sleeping in the house up to 12 hours overnight. 1 mid day visit and a dinner visit included.  Extra visits $25 each and Holiday/Spring Break extra visit $31.25 each.  Mileage may apply!

For Dogs and Cats

There is nothing like your pet/s getting to stay in their own home surrounded by familiar things and smells. Not to mention sleeping in their own bed or on the bed with the sitter!!

No constant barking to have to contend with. Worth its weight in gold.

( Mileage and Holiday rates apply )

*Injections and/or Subcutaneous Shot/Fluids are small additional charge $5. For household pets only.
