Frequently Asked Questions
Do you board pets?
At this time, no, we do not have a physical facility. We would love to open one in the future, but this is unlikely to happen any time soon.
Do you offer grooming services?
No, we do not offer any grooming services for any species.
My pet doesn't need a visit every day. Can you come every other day?
We have a strict every-day visit policy and must visit the home at least once daily, for the safety of your home and pets. Among many other reasons, cats, birds, and other pets can become deathly ill in a short period of time and it is not worth the risk.
I see a lot of stuff about exotic pets. Do you take care of cats and dogs?
Yes! We do all pets! A lot of our experience actually stems from working with cats and dogs. Most people have cats/dogs in addition to exotics, so it doesn't make sense to hire two sitters, now does it? At this time, we do NOT require you to own an exotic pet to request us as sitters; we just want exotic owners to feel comfortable knowing that we are here as an available option.
Will you take care of my farm? I have horses, goats, ducks, and more on my land.
Absolutely. Just follow the regular pre-sitting procedures.
For our own safety, we cannot care for any horse or large animal that has a history of aggression, biting, or kicking.
Will you care for blacklisted dog breeds like Pit Bulls or Rottweilers?
Yes! We do not discriminate based on breeds. However, we will not care for dogs who have a history of biting, regardless of breed, blacklisted or not.
If your dog doesn't have a history, but you are concerned that he/she could be territorial when you are not home (or really, if you have this concern with ANY pet. We've seen it happen with cats and birds too!), make sure to bring this up when you schedule your sitting and again at the initial meeting. We may do some relationship building and practice exercises to help make this situation as stress-free as possible.
Can you stay in my home over night?
We do offer an overnight option. You can read about it under the rates and services tab.
How are your prices determined?
Prices are determined by how much time it will take us to care for your pet and accomplish any other tasks you have assigned to us. The number of pets has no effect on cost. See the Rates and Services tab at the top of the page for specific prices.
