Rates We Charge

Initial In-Home Consultation  FREE

Before beginning service, we need to meet your pets and become familiar with their living space, toys, etc.  This consultation usually lasts 30 minutes  and is an opportunity for us all to get to know one another and get comfortable.  At this time, we will also need keys for access to the home, and go over our policies and procedures for scheduling and payment.  A consultation is required for any new services / pets.  The initial consultation is free, but additional visits are charged at our base price.

Standard Visit / Pet Sitting (~30 minutes) Base Price  $20

This is our most popular / standard visit that lasts approximately 30 minutes. It includes 15-20 minutes of walking/playtime or a 10 minute run.  If pets cannot be walked together or require more attention, additional fees may apply. Pet care such as feeding, cleaning litter boxes, giving simple medication, lots of petting/love/attention, an update email, is included.  With extended care, our focus is on PET sitting, but if you need help with simple tasks that we can also do within a 30 minute visit, we can provide those services.  All weekend visits are charged at our base price – no discounts are available on weekends.
