"BEST Rates & Reviews in Charlotte!"
Pet Sitting, Dog Walking, Overnight Pet Sitting & More!
Here is the play-by-play of a Pet Sitting Visit:
-We'll come to your home either morning, noon, or night for a visit you've scheduled with us
-We'll bring in any newspapers &/or packages for you on your doorstep
-We will greet your pets with loving hugs & kisses
-We will take your pets for an immediate potty break
-Then we will prepare for a walk (the walk depends on weather and which visit length is chosen)
-On our walk, your pet will get exercise, release anxiety & energy, and explore new sights & sounds which is essential in creating healthy & happy development for your dog!
-We will come back in after our walk and have playtime (or cudde-time if your pet prefers!) indoor or outdoors (depending if you have a fenced yard, or the weather)
We can play your pet's favorite game, be it tug-a-war or fetch! This gives your pets a chance for one-on-one attention during the day, and helps ease anxiety, as well.
-We can also work on new tricks/commands your pet may be learning, too!
-We will then straighten up (putting away toys, etc) fill up food bowls, water bowls, scoop litter boxes, and give treats!
-We can also administer most meds, if needed. (Please inquire for details)
-We would then write you a special & personal note EACH VISIT about your pet's day! And our pet owners tell us they are a special treat to come home to!
-Then we would put your pet back in a secure location (crate, bedroom, backyard, etc if needed) and give last goodbyes & kisses! We also love to leave your pet with a kong or bone, to end the visit with a perfect treat and wagging tails!
-We promise that you'll come home to a happy pet!
NOTE: If you have cats only, the visit would be feeding, playtime, love & attention, scooping litter, refilling water, and giving treats!
WE DON'T HAVE ANY BREED RESTRICTIONS!! : )
We will attempt to petsit any pet that we are comfortable with caring for. We love all animals, but we are only comfortable caring for the ones we have knowledge in caring for so that we can do the best job possible for your pets. Our knowledge of pets is important to us so that we can ensure great care to your pets!
If you have an animal that we are not familiar with nor know proper care for, we will decline the service for your pet's best interest!
WE DO NOT PROVIDE CARE FOR AGGRESSIVE PETS OF ANY KIND due to the safety of our sitters.
Pets we will petsit are any non-aggressive:
-Guineau pig, etc
- & Some snakes
(not dangerous, aggressive, or poisonous)
Yes, we are officially bonded & insured by PetSitters Associates, LLC.
Housesitting is a GREAT alternative to boarding because it is typically LESS expensive, especially if you have more than one pet and it is much more comfortable and less stressful for your pets to be in a home environment!
During a Overnight Sitting visit your pet can stay in their own home and stay on their same routine!
Your pet would be cared for continuously from the time the Sitter arrives between 7pm-9pm until 7am-9am the next morning! 12 hours of consecutive care!
Your pet would be taken out for potty breaks, a walk, given meds if needed, have feeding time AM & PM if needed, treats, love and attention, playtime, and any other routines your pet may be familiar with in a home environment (yours or ours)!
This is also a GREAT alternative if your pet is ill and needs constant, one on one care!
We can come by as many additional times during the day time hours as well, just be sure to schedule those in additon.
We also encourage our owners to call us at anytime to check on their pets, we know how important they are to you! Your sitter will check in with you though at least once per night!
