Frequently Asked Questions

Why Hire a Professional?

Your pets thrive on routine and familiarity. Their home is their sanctuary, and some animals simply get nervous when boarded at a kennel.

Hiring our pet sitting service can alleviate that nervousness while guaranteeing that your pets get the food, medicine and attention that they're used to throughout the day.

This is just some of the benefits of using a professional pet sitter:

  • Your pet will remain in the comfort of their home, safe and happy.
  • Your pets customary diet and exercise routine are uninterrupted
  • Your pet receives love and personal attention while you're away
  • Your pet is NOT exposed to illnesses from other animals (as in a kennel)
  • Your pet will not be confined to a dog kennel or cage
  • You do not have to impose on untrained or unwilling friends, family, or neighbors
  • You are not inconvenienced by transporting your pet to & from a boarding facility (at their convenience!)
  • Your home is looked after with crime-deterrent services
  • And, best of all, you can leave home worry-free, knowing your pet and home are in good hands

More and more pet owners are using the services of professional pet sitters to take advantage of the benefits in-home pet care provides

Do You Provide Special Care for Senior Pets?


Smaller dogs are considered seniors when they reach ages seven or eight, and larger dogs are considered seniors around age five or six. It can vary depending on the breed.

Common health problems for older dogs include arthritis, dental disease, kidney problems, cancer, heart problems and more.

One of the most common ailments we see in aging dogs is incontinence.

We understand this is not something your pet does on purpose and we have no problems with cleaning up the mess in a loving, caring manner.

Cats are generally considered seniors around age seven. Common problems in older cats include hyperthyroidism, kidney disease and arthritis.

A number of the pets we care for fall into the senior category. Some require medicine daily, some from time to time.

Do You Take Care of Exotic and Unusual Pets?

From a beta fish to aquariums, finches to parrots, dogs and cats to chickens and ducks, reptiles to pocket pets, we love them all!

We have no problem taking care of most pets. We own two senior dogs, one toddler Siberian Husky who we have owned since she was six weeks old and a senior cat. We also have chickens and ducks.

We also care for so called "bully breeds" dogs. We have cared for a number of Boxers, Pitbulls, and Rottweillers. We do not discriminate against any particular breed.
