Overnight Pet Sitting: start at $90 per night. Extended over
night visits provide your pets with a sitter for the entire
time you are away. Your sitter may leave for up to 8 hours a day in a 24 period
attend to personal needs/other clients/our own pets. This will not be all in one block but rather two to four trips away.. More often than not the time at your home is more than the minimum. The
at which your sitter will arrive at the beginning and leave
at the end of
the stay will be determined based on the times
of your departure and arrival.
regular services listed on the pet-sitting
services page are included with overnights. Additional
service rates and rates for more than 2 dogs or larger animals
Since your pet sitter basically lives at your house during this time, you are expected to provide food for meals for the duration of the stay. If you choose not to provide food, please add $10 per day for meals. (Click here to get an idea of foods to buy.)
Normal relief walks are included. Exercise walks will require additional fees. If I need to drive your pet to where s/he will be walked, additional charges will be incurred unless I am using your car to do so.
we have your permission and weather permits,
we might even go on an outing to
the dog park and/or PetSmart for a treat (only if your
kids have good manners...or at least acceptable ones...).
On overnight sits of 5 days or more, we prefer to share the stay
because we have families and pets of
our own that we start to miss. We all love each and every one
of the pets whose care we are entrusted with and you can rest
assured your babies are well cared-for and coddled
by whichever sitter is with
If it is necessary
for your peace of mind that only one of us remain the entire
length of your absence though, we will -- just be sure to tell
Hours desired OVER the number specifies can be scheduled at the rate of $5 per additional hour.
Keeping Your Pet In Our Home: We are more expensive than a boarding kennel. This is because we do not generally
accomadate more than 2 families pets at the same time. When
your pets stay with us,
s/he will not be kept in a little cage with only two or three 5
minute walks per day. Your pet will be treated as a member
of our own family. They will be given constant love and attention.
They will be allowed to lay on
our laps. They may even sleep in our beds with us!
you instruct us otherwise, they will get various treats throughout
the day as our own pets do.
be house broken or at least crate trained. Or a puppy. This is a wonderful option for puppies to continue to be worked with on things like crate and house training, basic commands and GREAT socialization. Little puppies will not always get free run of the house and might get confined to an indoor exercise pen when they can't be supervised.
We have a 500sq foot dog run for playtime which is inside our fully fenced backyard.
Dogs over 30 pounds are not eleigible for in my home boarding unless I know them and have spent time with them and told you they are eligible. Most big or multi dog families that stay with me were regular visit or overnight clients first. (Or started as puppies.) Dogs over 30# that I have not previously done overnights with must come to my house for a playdate with my dogs to make sure they will get along prior to being accepted. In My Home Boarding is for well behaved, social dogs that are not destructive.
I can not board dogs that are agressive to humans or other animals in my home, but I do offer other options for them. If your baby doesn't enjoy playtime with other dogs (I have 4!) or wants to eat cats or furniture or my shoes, in Your Home visits or stays would be the better option.
rates start at $30
per night for the first dog; $15 for each additional dog.
21-40 pounds rates start at $40
per night for the first dog; $20 for each additional dog.
41-74 pounds rates start at $50
per night for the first dog; $25 for each additional dog.
75+ pounds rates start at $75
per night for the first dog; $30 for each additional dog.
If your dogs are different sizes, the largest dog will be billed as the first dog and the additional dog rate will apply for the smaller.
If your dog is accepted for in my home boarding, please note: You will be 100% responsible for any damage your dog does to my property, person and/or pets.
Home checks (check mail/ water plants) in conjunction with boarding will be $15 per visit to homes within our service area.
Cats: Cats REALLY do not do well in baording situations. Being able to be cared for in their own home is almost always the best choice for a cat. Small kittens are different and usually benefit from the extra attention. Boarding for adult cats in my home is $30 for the first cat and $20 for each additional cat. Grown cats will be confined to a single room.
Kittens under 4 months old $15 per night.
Other Animals: Contact us Caged animals vary by the amount of space and care required. Reptiles, unusual and pocket-pets welcome. Average ($5-15/day.).
