Drop Off and Pick Up
8:00 AM to 8:00 PM
Monday - Sunday
If you need service outside of these hours, please reserve the extra day needed and/or message me. I will try to accommodate you as best as possible.
Please note I do not charge per hour... I charge calendar day because I have a limited amount of space. If your fur baby is with me for any part of a day, be it 24 hours or 6 hours, I do not book another client for that space on that day. It is so that I do not have a circumstance where there is inadvertent overlapping of clients. So full day rates apply from the day you drop your fur baby off to the day you pick him/her up regardless of drop off or pick up time. Thank you for your understanding.
Example of how calendar days are counted; Both the start date and the end date are included in the count. Thus, if arrival day is January 1, through February 8th, January 1st is counted as day 1; January 2nd, is day 2; February 2nd, is day 33; and February 6th, is day 37.
Pet must be up to date on all Vaccines: Rabies, Bordetella, Leptospirosis and DHLPP (distemper shot). Also, To maintain a "Flea/Tick Free" environment all doggies must be on "Flea/Tick" prevention.

Holidays are a busy time for everyone, pet parents and sitters alike. That's why sitter rates for dog boarding, dog day care, dog walking and drop in visits may be slightly higher during these in demand times of the years. If a booking includes any dates within the holiday period, the holiday rate will be applied for those days.
I know the anxiety a dog owner can feel from leaving their fur babies with a stranger for the first time, so I do my best to alleviate some of that stress and worry by sending regular updates with photos so that you can track the daily wellness and comfort of your four-legged family member. I also encourage my clients to reach out to me day or night with any concerns that may arise while away. But the best way I have found to reduce anxiety is by a simple meet and greet before the initial boarding…. It is a wonderful way to make sure that everyone (fur babies included) are comfortable with our amenities and that all concerns are addressed for the upcoming separation. I thank you for your consideration of my services and hope to hear from you soon to schedule an appointment.
What to bring
- Food (please bring food you dog(s) are use to. Changing food = upset stomach)
- *Pet info sheet
*To provide the best possible care I will give you a pet information sheet to fill out so I know feeding schedule, special needs, medications, triggers, routines, likes/dislikes, emergency contact etc. Please complete and return.

Pet sitting is what I do full-time, so I dedicate all my time to your fur babies. I want to make sure they have a fantastic time and go home super happy and healthy. My home is secure. As a safety precaution, guests don't get access to the front door area to prevent dogs that might be dashers from trying to make a break for it. All of our fences are 5" high and have barriers on the bottom of the fence and gates are very secure to prevent easy access to open them. Our home is also has impact windows, so if we have to deal with a storm during hurricane season, we/doggies are pretty secure.
