This is an example of the many services we offer. Any service you choose will be customized
to fit the need of you, your home, your lifestyle and your pet.
Customizable Service Offerings.
The first thing we do with new clients is set up a meeting with the client and the pet sitter(s) that will be taking care of the visits. In this meeting we will go over how to enter/exit the home (including any security procedures) and review the rundown of the visit – showing and explaining how you would like us to care for and interact with your pet(s) and where any materials or supplies we will need to use are located. We will discuss the timing, frequency & duration of visits, and decide on a communication strategy. Any other question can also be addressed at this time.
Prospective Pet Owner Consult.
Deciding to add a pet to the family is a fun but complicated decision. For clients who would like assistance during this process we can provide advice & expertise by: accompanying clients to a shelter/breeder for advice on breed/size selection and energy level. We can give our suggestions on necessary supplies, training tips, training services or advice on whether/where to enroll in any type of obedience class. We can give some pointers on encorporating your new pet into your life/schedule. If you have children we can also give advice on how to encorporate them into the pet care process to teach them responsibility as well as get them feeling involved and invested in their new pet - and the work that comes with it.

If the client or pet has needs other than these they can be discussed at the consult.
For animals that do not do well sleeping alone in their home, we do offer overnight visits. In this case, the sitter will stay at your home to keep your pet company. This visit includes evening and morning walks, feeding, and can include extra services for your pet or your home as requested and discussed in the consult.
Some pets do not do well left alone for any length of time while their owners are out of town, so why not offer them a mini vaction instead. The sitter would bring your pet to their home for the duration of your trip and this service would include all daily walks, feeding, grooming, playtime & attention to pamper your pet so they don't stress while you are away.
Upon request we can coordinate special visits where we would come pick up your pet(s) and take them to a park, dog park, lake or some other special location for play, socialization, and exploration. The exact duration & locations would be decided on a case by case basis.
