Pet Sitting Rates and Services
Your pets are:
and more HEALTHY...
...in their own home.
What is in-home pet sitting?
Very simply, in-home pet care is caring for your pets inside the comfort of their own home while you are away on vacation or business.
Our mission is to be the "next best thing" to you being there with your pets. Pets are used to being at home and that is where they are most comfortable. We focus on keeping your pets safe, healthy and giving them a lot of PURE LOVE and snuggles. Beyond that, of course, we want to keep up their routine and make them as comfortable as possible. Below you will see a detailed list of what is included in each visit.
Our service is very professional. We also focus on making YOUR life easier by vacuuming where needed, cleaning up messes, and giving your house that lived-in feel. You will also receive excellent communication with pet reports and real time photos at each visit inside our confidential and password protected pet sitting software. Our clients report feeling at ease and having peace of mind when they travel.
Our First Appointment: "Meet-Greet-and-Learn"
This first appointment is all about getting to know each other. We want to make sure you and your pets are completely comfortable with us and that everything feels good to you. Plus, we want to learn all of the details about your pets, your home and just exactly how you like things done.
Because it's so important to be thorough, we do charge a one-time fee of $20 for the "meet and greet" appointment. This one-time fee also includes a trip to return your key once you are home or for getting you set up on our preferred client key club.
Please see our rates, visit lengths and what's included below.
"After interviewing many pet sitters in the area,
Amanda came in to our home and we knew she was different!"
"After searching and interviewing many pet sitters in the area, Amanda came in to our home and we knew she was different! She took the time to get to know the girls, the toys they loved, places they would hide when scared, and all the funny quirks the dogs have. She stays up to date on pet care, makes it easy to book, and even checks the dogs’ food when there are food brand recalls.
You can truly tell she is passionate about loving and caring for fur babies, not just “getting the job done.”
She is incredibly trustworthy and is competent with security systems and all the ins and outs of taking care of securing your home while away! She sends updates to us so we know the girls are happy and fed! She maintains the dogs’ routines and gives them extra love and attention.
We always come home to happy, clean, and well rested pups with their toy basket pulled apart showing us what a good time they had!" -Ally Catherine Trenary - Durham, NC
How do I get started?
It's very simple. You can make an online reservation, text/call 919.616.2897, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then invite you to our pet sitting software and have you review our contract/policies, set up your pets profile and schedule your pet care. From there we will review your pet's profile and then schedule your meet and greet.
Unsure about number of visits or visit lengths for your pet(s)?
We are happy to assist you when deciding how many visits and how long they should be. We have a lot of experience and can quickly give you our suggestions.
For Cats: Typically shy kitties need a 15 minute visit, while kitties that want attention or need medication require a 30 minute visit. It really depends on your cats needs and we are here to help guide you.
For Dogs: Most of our clients choose 3-4 visits per day for their dogs and we feel that is an excellent choice. Most pups need multiple potty breaks. The good thing is that you can vary these visit lengths by day. So, typically we recommend a 30 minute visit at meal times. That gives your pup enough time to eat at their own pace and go for a nice walk while always receiving lots of love, attention and praise. This also gives us time to tidy up anything, take in the mail, packages and any other tasks your household may need.
Then at lunchtime or bedtime our clients typically choose a 15 minute potty break. This is a quick visit for a short walk or backyard time in a fenced in space. Again, it all depends on the needs of your pets and what they are used to receiving when you are home.
Have more than one pet?
Yay! The more the merrier and we don't charge extra for additional pets. It's very common for our clients to have more than one pet. There is no additional charge for multiple pets in your home. All of our visits are carefully structured based on time to give your pet sitter plenty of it to take excellent care of your home and ALL of your pets.

Benefits for pet sitting for you and your pets:
Numerous studies have found that pets are happiest when they are at their own home. They have the comfort of familiar sights, sounds, and smells.
There are numerous health benefits to in-home pet sitting. First, studies have shown that pets in their familiar setting, with their familiar diet and exercise routines, is the least stressful pet care option. They also get the benefit of individual love and attention. Plus, they avoid the stress of being transported to and from an outside facility. Finally, staying in their own home greatly reduces the risk of exposure to illness from other animals or from kennel conditions.
We'll give your house that "lived-in" feel by rotating lights and blinds. We'll also make sure packages and mail are taken in and all weekly routines (like garbage) are maintained. Plus, we never advertise that we're pet sitting with car signage or anything similar.
