What you get for your money:

  • A highly skilled and trained professional pet sitter who is insured, bonded and pet first aid certified.  All our employees have had a professional background check before being hired. New hires have recently been screened for their honesty, work ethic and more by a system called the PEP evaluation. Our ratio of resume to hire is 35 to 1. We are extremely particular who we bring into our business-and who will be coming into your home! Many of the team comes from the vet field-or behavioral backgrounds or doggie day care-not just people who like pets. They KNOW pets!
  • The peace of mind that if that primary sitter is ill, on vacation, or held up caring for another animal, that a backup sitter will be there, so your pets are not left waiting. Recently, one of our sitters drove 65 miles to care for a puppy who needed us.
  • Full liability insurance. If your pet is attacked by chance by another dog OUR insurance covers it-not your own.
  • Indemnity insurance. We have never reported any incident of theft in 6+ years in business, however, if it were to happen, its on our policy.
  • You have a set time frame. Dogs are creatures of habit!
  • Privacy. We contact YOU and only YOU about your dogs well being and don’t post on social media without a signed, written consent from you first. Our team will never share your private information unless we need to use a back up sitter so she can do her best job.
  • EXTRAS...caring for your home as if it was your own-including taking in mail, newspapers, packages, cleaning up debris from Mother Nature and determining the best environment for your pets in terms of warmth or cooling. We strive to make your pets as comfortable as possible! We do one on one care with your sweet babies!
