  • Holiday Fees
  • There is a $15.00 per visit, $30.00 standard overnight and $50.00 full time overnight pet sitting holiday fee for some federal holidays plus family holidays Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Dec 24, 31
  • Please note that 100% of your holiday fee will be paid to your pet sitter to compensate her for time away from her holiday celebration.
  • Reservations within one week of a major holiday require advance non refundable payment for all clients. This is because pet sitters loose money when holiday reservations are cancelled.
  • Pet Sitter Consultation
  • Prior to pet sitting service in your home, our pet sitter must come to your home to meet with you and and the pet she will care for. She will take notes on your pet sitting needs, meet with your pets so they are not scared when she comes in and pick up your keys or other form of access.
  • There is a $15.00 consultation fee for the meeting to compensate your pet sitter for her time and gas.

For holiday overnight in your home or small dog boarding in pet sitters home there is a 7 night minimum if available. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions regarding holiday minimums.
  • All pet sitters are mature above the age of 30, have years of professional pet sitting experience, have past a detailed background check and are covered under my insurance and bond.
  •  My insurance has no deductible, many large pet sitting corporations have insurance which carries a deductible of $500.00 meaning if there is a claim you must pay the first $500.00 before the insurance company will pay anything.
  • Reservations:
  • Reservations for first time clients are not guaranteed until payment is made so it is a good idea to set up your consultation as soon as possible.
  • Key Pick Up or Return
  • There is a $15 key pick up or return fee, if you would like your pet sitter to make an additional trip to pick up or tern your key there is a $15 charge per trip. Picking up or dropping off key at the pet sitters home is not an option, to protect their privacy.
  • Key pick up fee will also apply if you live in an apartment or condo complex that requires the pet sitter to go to the office to get a key or pass each visit and then return it. This option is usually time consuming for the pet sitter, some times she may have to wait in line to get access to the key or fob or other other electronic access.
  • There are many ways to avoid the key pick up or return fee, you can leave your key in a lock box on your door, we can keep your key on file all keys on file or in pet sitters care are covered on the business insurance. You can leave your key somewhere in your yard to be picked up and left (please note insurance does not cover this option), you can install a combo lock on your door, we can use a garage combination or remote (please note that in some cases electronic entry will not work if there is a power failure).
  • There is the option of leaving a key on file as a back up and having the pet sitter use an electronic form of entry, this way she will be able to get in if it fails.
  • We are happy to use any option you prefer for entry or to pick up and return the key each time.
