Service Recommendations and Requirements. 

To be able to provide you with the best quality of service we recommend you follow your pet's current routine to prevent anxiety or issues with your pet.  

If you just need a potty break,  A 15-30 minute visit is a great option.


If you have a high energy pup and would like to exercise out some energy we recommend a 30-60 minute visit. 

For puppies and seniors, we recommend 2 visits per day.  For puppies to help with potty training, energy, and extra feeding needs.  For seniors for some extra love and to help alleviate senior potty issues. 

For Pet Sitting we recommend 3-4 visits per day on full days, keeping your pet as close to their normal routine as possible to alleviate stress. 


For Cat Sits and Small Animal Care visits.  We recommend at least one visit per day to check that food and water has not been knocked over,  pet has not trapped themselves in a closet or become stressed from too much alone time, causing illness or injury.
