The initial Social / Meet & Greet is FREE!!  During this visit, the Sitter assigned to your home will meet you and the pets, and discuss the level of care required to keep them happy, safe, and healthy.  You'll have the opportunity to

- walk through their daily routine

- show the sitter where the important stuff is located (i.e. feed/water bowls, food, treats, medications, litter boxes toys, leashes, cleaning supplies, extra towels for muddy paws, etc)

- talk about quirky behaviors (e.g. hiding spots, pet tends to be an escape artist, favorite toys, picky eater, favors one water bowl over another, excessive licking/scratching, etc.)

- review medications and how to administer them (Please refer to our Medication page for additional details)

- discuss basic home care instructions (i.e. where to place mail and packages, light plant watering, trash/recycle day, alternating lights and blinds, etc.)

Meet & Greets generally last between 15-30 minutes.

Overnight House/Pet Sitting a.k.a "Sleepover Care"

After careful consideration, we have decided to END our Overnight Pet Care Service after 21 years!

Our company has always focused on assigning one sitter to each home to ensure the sitter/pet and sitter/client bond matures over time. This is very easy when it comes to our standard pet care services, but not the case for our Overnight Pet Care.

When I first started this company, I was a college student and my first pet assignment was Overnight care. As a student, it worked perfectly with my schedule! However, after starting my own family, spending the night in a client's home was difficult! We knew college students would have the best flexibility to spend the night in someone's home, BUT hiring a student came with concerns that were difficult to manage.

* The biggest concern was how often a student's schedule would change (usually the end of each semester), so there was no guarantee they could even work with our company within 3-4 months of hiring them

* The second concern was availability.  A sitter can be assigned as the Primary Sitter for three homes and this works beautifully as long as all three homes do not request Overnight Pet Care for the same dates or overlapping dates!!

Clients will be able to book visits after 8 pm to accommodate late potty breaks for their dogs, but for now and until we can think of a better option, we will have to discontinue the Overnight Pet Visits.

Outside Service Areas
We are more than happy to accommodate homes in rural areas of town and/or homes that are outside the closest sitter's 10-mile radius driving distance as long as both parties agree to the commitment.  This includes the Sitter being willing and able to complete services given the distance, as well as the Client being informed and willing/able to pay the Out of Service Area Fees.

In general, driving the distance to assist a fur baby works well as long as the distance, level of care, etc. do not place stress on the sitter's normal pet care route. If clients wish to pursue services given this information, an additional fee will be added to each visit to account for the additional driving required to service your home and pets.

If closest sitter lives between:

10-12 miles - $2/visit

12-14 miles - $3/visit

14-16 miles - $4/visit

16-18 miles - $5/visit

18-20 miles $6/visit
