Trusted, Full-time Pet Sitters In Your Home

Providing Peace of Mind to Pet Parents Since 2006

Going out of town? Busy during the day?
Need spend the night visits?

We come to your house to care for your pets, plants and home.

Over 500 dogs, cats, birds, turtles, rabbits, chickens, llamas, goats being cared for since 2006.


We strive to keep both you and your pup as happy and comfortable as possible while you’re away. Your pup will love the exercise & the fresh air.


Say goodbye to kennels when you leave home. Walks, feedings, snuggles & all the love your pet can handle while you're away.


Your pets’ sessions will be tailored to his/ her likes but we have found most pets love runs, frisbee, fetch, tug, walks, waterplay and, of coarse, lots of love and attention.


We really get to know you and your dog and we can guarantee consistent and personal care that is equal to your love and attention. Let's meet.


Safe travel for your pet to and from the Vet or Groomer. No more rushing from work to your next pet appointment.


We understand that caring for exotic pets can be quite involved and require very detailed instructions. Extra special TLC for birds, turtles, fish, rabbits and more.


You can trust us to feed, play and care for your pets while you are away. We customize our packages to your pets to suit their unique and individual needs.


Got llamas, horses, goats, chickens? Now you can plan that weekend getaway, while we provide the care your farm animals need.


No matter the breed, dogs are always happier when they get to be dogs and that means having a chance to explore the great outdoors — out of the house and into nature.
