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.

REQUIREMENTS - Sitting Comfortably is licensed with the State as a non-commercial border, which allows us to legally board our client's fur babies in a Team Member's home.  The law requires all boarded pets to have current vaccination records on file before allowing a pet in the sitter's home.  Please refer to Core Vaccination Requirements for more details. You may email a copy of your pet's vaccine records to or upload a copy into the Client Portal.

Dog Boarding Pick-up and Drop off Notices

  1. We no longer formally offer Afternoon Pick-ups/Drop-offs. Clients requesting pick-up/drop-off times before or after the available time blocks will ONLY be allowed if the Sitter is available AND it does not interfere with the current route. Please refer to the chart below for Fee schedule
  2. Out of courtesy to those Sitters caring for your fur babies, Clients requesting a pick-up time before 7 am on the first day will need to take advantage of the Evening Pick-up Service the day prior.  Additionally, Clients requesting a drop-off time after 9 pm on the final day will need to take advantage of the Morning Drop-off Service the next day.

Private Boarding Fee Chartv3

Please note, our company chooses to stay in compliance with the State and City Laws regarding the number of pets any team member can legally board/care for in their residence.  As such, no team member is allowed to board or care for more than 4 pets at any given time.  This includes pets owned by the team member and pets welcomed in their home as a fur guest.  If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding this, please do not hesitate to ask a member of our Management Team.

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
