We charge $30 per half hour of care, regardless of species. We require a minimum of two visits per day for some types of animals, as established below. We offer a discounted rate for regularly scheduled weekday walks/potty breaks for ongoing daily-walk clients.

We appreciate requests for service at least two weeks before the start date - but are always happy to fit in last minute bookings so long as we have room on our calendar! Please remember though, even a reservation two weeks ahead of time may not be long enough during busy times of the year (holidays, school breaks, summer vacations, etc.) - so booking as soon as you have plans in place is advised. Please note: a booking over Thanksgiving weekend or the two weeks at Christmas/New Years is not considered firm until the deposit is received.

Overnight Visits
Please note: We are not taking any new overnight clients at this time.

Our fee for overnight visits is $95 per night. This includes 10-12 hours with your pet, an evening and morning walk for dogs, and care (feeding, playtime, clean up of litter boxes, etc.) for any other animals in your home. We will also happily bring in the mail/newspaper, water plants, and open/close blinds - to help the house look more inhabited while you are away. Mid-day visits/potty breaks between overnight stays will incur an additional charge.


Mid-Day/Afternoon Walks
Give your dog (or cat ... or whomever!) some out-time while you're at work! We'll take your pet for a walk (all animals must be leash or harness-trained for walks), or we can stay at your home while your pet has a potty break and plays for a while in your backyard. For safety reasons, we do not provide off-leash time, except in the pet owner's fenced yard. No more than 3 dogs (all belonging to the same owner) walked at once.


Pet sitting: Vacation Visits
Dogs: Dogs should never go more than 12 hours between visits - therefore we require a minimum of 2 visits a day for any household with dogs, unless it's a mid-day potty break/walk where the owners will be home morning and evening.

For extended pet sitting periods, we require a morning visit to check food/water and allow outdoor potty time, and an afternoon/evening visit for a walk, playtime, and food and water. The length of each visit, and/or the possible need for a third visit around mid-day, is determined by the number of dogs and how much interaction/exercise they need.

Cats: Since some cats just need us to check in on them once a day to make sure they're doing ok, change the litterbox, and provide food and fresh water, and others need snuggles/playtime on top of the basics, services for any particular family will depend on how independent the cats are and whether they need time for us to give them love and play with them, etc.

Socialized birds/parrots: We require a minimum of two visits per day for birds to make sure they have clean food and water, have not cut themselves on toys, have not broken a blood feather, etc. The morning visit is to to uncover cages (if needed), check food and water, open curtains, and give everyone a visual exam. The afternoon/evening visit is typically longer, to check food and water, change papers as necessary, and give out-time. Length of visits will depend on the number of birds, the number of cages, and how much out-time & interaction the birds need.

Birds in an aviary: Minimum two visits per day to check on everyone, change substrate, and provide food and fresh water. Length of visits will depend on the size/number of aviaries. For a week or more, an additional half-hour per aviary per week to do a thorough cage cleaning (so if you have two aviaries, an additional hour per week on top of basic care).

Rodents, reptiles, fish, and other small animals: Food, water, out-time and cage/habitat cleaning as necessary based on species, at our hourly rate.

Mixed-type households: If you have multiple types of animals in your home, we can work out a schedule that will work best for the number and types of animals you have, based on our hourly rate. Minimum number of visits for each species will apply to ensure proper care, personal attention, and walks/exercise are done for all the animals.


Environmental Enrichment
Does your caged pet (bird, rabbit, hamster) have an environment that is safe and healthy? Does it stimulate your pet to play during the day (or night if nocturnal)? Do you know how to set up a cage to encourage plenty of movement and activity rather than having a perch/cubby potato? If not, we can help! We offer consultation services to help you set up an environment that is big enough and busy enough to help your pet have a more enriched and engaged life. From helping you pick out cages to decking them out with safe substrate, perches, ladders and toys, to purchasing and set-up, we're happy to help you provide the best for your pets! Services billed at our hourly rate.
