Why Hire a Pet Sitter?

Peace of mind: Pet Pals offers a peaceful opportunity for your pet to stay in his/her own environment away from illness, aggression and loud noise. Pets get to stay in their home, sleep in their own bed, eat out of their own dish and stay on their regular routine.  All of this while having your home looked after and given a “lived in” look. When you return your pet will be happily awaiting you!  No special pick up hours to inconvenience you and a warm welcome home!

Security: Each sitter is bonded and insured for your protection and a professional pet lover.  We are veterinarian recommended and offer client referrals at any time.

On Demand: We don’t only offer services to our travelers, but make regular or last minute visits to our clients with demanding jobs that require long working hours. Realize you have an after work meeting, a personal appointment and can’t get home to let the dog out?  Give us a call!

Convenience: Pet Pals is open every day, all year round. We offer a variety of services at all times of the day while we look after your pet. Every visit includes dog walking, pet playtime, companionship, feeding, watering and medication administration per owners request. Litter scooping, kennel cleaning, pet laundry and dish cleaning are done each visit as required to maintain clean, sanitary conditions in your home surroundings so you won’t have a mess to return to.

No forgotten visits!!  We use industry leading software with a convenient app.  Each client will receive a completed visit report after every single visit letting you know the details of our time with your pets along with some pics so you don’t miss a thing.  This update is sent directly to your app and email on file in real time.  This software also provides the convenience to clients to be able to make, change or cancel future pet sitting reservations.   Easy and convenient online payments as well as another avenue to communicate to your own personal pet sitter.

Free extras!!!   We are happy to perform light house-sitting services such as bringing in the mail/paper and packages, watering plants, rotate lights and blinds and taking out the garbage to make your house looked lived in – this is all included!

This was created for the new family pet. This service is custom designed to fit your needs. It is intended to teach your new dog a “routine” that fits into your family schedule. We evaluate your needs and custom design a package that works for you


Although not as active as they used to be, we at Pet Pals know that the seniors sometimes need a little extra support.  Whether it be let out a few extra times because they can’t hold it as long anymore or needing some interaction and movement.  We can set some time aside to spend with your senior and design a plan that works for the whole family.  When life is so busy, we can help YOU by coming in while you are at work and be their assistance for the day.  Check in, clean up any accidents, help get up and move a bit and administer any necessary medications or just give a relaxing rub down or meditation session for anxiety.  Senior pets are some of our very FAVORITE at Pet Pals.  Let us help you!


All pet and home services include an initial consultation that will be scheduled prior to services.
