    Puppy Potty Breaks -
    Young pups can benefit greatly from this service.  It's a quick "gotta go" type break allowing your pup to relieve itself all while helping to build confidence and aiding in house breaking. Two visits per day are recommended during the "potty training" phase, followed by one visit per day for pups up to 6 months of age.  Each visit is (at least) 10 minutes long.  Treat them great, don't make them wait!
    Fees are as follows -
    $12 per visit
    Pet Sitting Services -
    Our own love of animals recommends that you refrain from boarding your pet(s) in kennels. The animals feel abandoned and can become very stressed. Kennels tend to have small runs or cages accompanied by constant barking. There is a greater chance of your pet becoming ill due to stress and exposure to other pets.

    Pet sitting (in your home) allows for your pet to continue it's daily routine all the while relaxing in the comforts of home.  Your pet will receive personalized attention from one of our pet professionals with each (at least) 30 minute visit.

    Services are customizable to include leash walking (dogs), playtimes with favorite toys, or just cuddling on a cozy sofa and enjoying  lots of love and attention.  Less stress for your pet means less stress for you.

    Fees are as follows -
    $20 per visit 
    $  5 each additional dog
    $  3 each additional cat
    $  3 each additional cage
    Overnight Pet Sitting Services (We will stay at your location.) -
    Your beloved pet will never have to know what it's like to experience a lonely night.  One of our professional pet sitters will come to your home for a fun-filled sleepover.  In addition to basic care, your pet will be treated to full one-on-one attention from their caregiver.  Playtime, walks, belly-rubs, or just spending quiet-time snuggling, are some of the possibilities.  Lots of  "TLC" is guaranteed. Great for senior or special needs pets.
