Mid-day Dog Walks

While healthy adult dogs can usually “hold it” for eight hours without incident, puppies and some older dogs just can’t make it that long. That’s where our midday dog walking service comes in.

Do you really want to run home on your lunch hour to let the dog out? We’d love to take care of it for you! Or maybe you just have a dog that’s a bundle of energy – think how much calmer he’d be if he’d already had a nice walk while you were away at the office! Midday dog walks are also a great alternative to doggie daycare – without the hassle of dropping off and picking up! We even leave a report card for you, so you know how he behaved while you were out, whether he did all of his outside business, and if there is anything else unusual that you might want to make note of.

Starting at:

$20 per
Standard Visit

Dog Vacation Sitting

You know how you never really feel quite “at home” in a hotel? Well, kennels are like hotels for your pooch, and while some dogs relish the opportunity to see new faces, many would rather be on “their” sofa, surrounding by “their” toys. If your dog is dedicated to his favorite napping spot, in-home pet sitting might be your answer! We’ll come three times per day – once before 8am, once in the afternoon, and once after 8pm – to give your furry pal potty breaks, playtime, meals and lots of TLC!

Best of all, your relaxed pooch will be there waiting for you when you get home – no need to pick them up at the kennel, or leave them for an extra day because you’re getting back too late. And you’ll even receive a report card letting you know how everything went when you were away!

Starting at:

$22 per
Standard Visit

Cat Vacation Sitting

Cats are very concerned about their territory, which is why many of our feline friends aren’t comfortable in a kennel setting. If your cat is one of those, then in-home pet sitting is a great option! We’ll visit once per day to provide food, water, litter box cleanup and general TLC. A second visit each day can be arranged, but for the health & well-being of your feline friend, requests for every other day visits will not be accommodated.

Best of all, your stress-free kitty will be there waiting for you when you get home – no need to pick them up at the kennel, or leave them for an extra day because you’re getting back too late. And you’ll even receive a report card letting you know how everything went when you were away!


Starting at:

$20 per
Standard Visit

– Starting at $20 per standard visit

– $10 per each additional 15 minutes (Scheduled only when care cannot be given in a standard visit,

Customer Reviews

“I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your services. It’s so hard to find a reliable dog walker who you can trust with letting into your house and caring for your beloved animal, and you guys definitely exceeded my expectations. Just as an example, there was a day where it was pouring outside and Brodie was petrified to walk and go to the bathroom in the rain, so she actually came back an hour or so later when the rain let up and took him out again! That really meant a lot to both of us! Anyway, thank you again for everything and I will definitely email you if there are any days in the next couple of weeks. Take care and keep up the incredible work!” 


“During this Thanksgiving time, we are very grateful for you! Thank you so much for taking excellent care of Tiger & Nala while we were away. We really appreciate your extra effort during a busy time!”
