After care:  Pet sitting

We provide weekend and holiday pet sitting and pet visits for friendly dogs and cats. Please check in to see if we are in your travel radius; it's not quite as big as the training radius. We do not offer this service for dogs with aggressive behavior at this time. If you prefer to board your dog, please email Laurie who provides this service independently at her home with a large fenced yard, indoor kennels, and lots of attention.


Amanda will come to your home briefly prior to your overnight trip to understand where everything is and what you want her to do. She can give medication and is able to do insulin shots for cooperative pets. She is happy to bring in the mail, roll trash cans to the curb, and water plants as needed if you leave specific instructions for her. She is not a housekeeper and doesn't offer cleaning and laundry service, though!

Overnight stays are 15 hours plus 1 midday, half-hour break, before the next night, e.g. 5p-8a and 12:30p potty break. If you would like to have her there longer with your pet during the day, that can be arranged for an additional visit fee in some cases, depending on her schedule. Please note, we cannot do half-hour visits only with your pet unsupervised overnight.

A 25% deposit is required to hold the date(s). This is refundable with cancellation notice 15+ days prior.
