Upon completion of all relevant forms, we will schedule a free initial consultation to meet with you, review any special instructions, and collect your house keys. More importantly, we will meet with your pets, taking the time to get to know them so that they feel comfortable when we return.

Services

Pet Sitting

Each pet sitting visit is 30 minutes long. Longer visits can be arranged for an extra fee upon request. A normal visit includes:

* Play time!* Your pet will have lots of fun playing fetch, tag, or whatever his/her favorite activity is.

* Potty and exercise time. If you have a yard, we'll let your dog outside to potty and weather permitting, to stretch their legs, too. Or, if you prefer, we'll take your dog on a walk.

* Replenishment of food and water as needed, along with snack time.

* Litter box waste removal for cats. Including changing the litter as needed, and sweeping up or vacuuming the floor around the cat box on a daily basis.

* Accident clean up. Not that we anticipate your pet having an accident, but from time to time it happens. Pets can get a bit nervous when mom and dad are away. We are prepared to clean up so that your pet is in a healthy environment and you come home to a clean, fresh house.

* Medication Administration. (Certain "complicated" medications may incur an additional fee)

* Brushing as required. (Long-haired cats and dogs may incur an additional fee)

* TLC. Pets need more than food, water, and exercise! Lots of love, attention, kindness, and belly rubs can be expected during each visit.

* Pet Journal. We keep a daily log of your pet's activities so you can read about all the fun we had together. (We can also send email and text updates per request)

* The 'Lived In Look'. Sounds like a hairstyle, doesn't it? But, we're not talking hair, we're talking safety. While we are in your home, we will do the following services, per your request at no additional charge: Open/close curtains and drapes, rotate lights on and off, play the television and/or radio, pick up mail and newspapers.

* Plants. We'll be happy to water your plants free of charge as long as it can be done during the pet visit time. If you have a lot of plants, a garden, or lawn that needs to be watered, there will be an additional charge.
