Rates and Services
Payment is due on the first day of service.
Complimentary Meet N Greets 30 min
We offer two complimentary Meet n Greets, if requested or needed.
The first is a way for us to meet each other, let your potential pet sitter meet and interact with your pets to see if they're a good fit for your family, and for you to ask us any questions you may have.
When you decide to hire us, then we'll ask that you complete the necessary paperwork, answer any other questions that may have come up, tour your home, and get the keys. We'll also go over your detailed instructions on how to care for your pets. If possible, please schedule this meeting at least 2 days before the job is to begin. However, we understand that "life happens" and do our best to be as flexible as we can about scheduling. If you prefer, we use a software program called Dropbox (www.dropbox.com) to email you the paperwork. It's free, secure and safe to use. If needed, the paperwork can be printed out and brought to you.
Pet Sitting for all types of animals
Customized care for cats, dogs, birds, other small animals, and reptiles.
Any size or breed of friendly dog is welcome (and Nana Mary has a special place in her heart for the "bully" breeds).
Special care for puppies and older dogs.
We do not pet sit for aggressive animals. If you'd like, we will gladly refer you to some local behaviorists that may be able to help you with your pet. We will also give you the contact information for local kennels or vets offices that might be willing to board them.
Pet Sitting and Dog Walking:
One 15 minute visit - $15
One 30 minute visit - $20
Overnight Stay - $35
This is a 12 hour time frame, for example, from 7 pm to 7 am. Time frame is flexible, depending on your needs and our availability.
Live-In Services - $50 per day (24 hour period). We'll hang out with your pets, give them lots of snuggle time and play, reinforce the training you've already given them, and basically be at their beck and call in order to spoil them rotten (which seems to be Nana Mary's specialty, according to some of my clients - lol!)
How's That Work?
Traveling with your pet and need to go out for a while? No problem! We'll keep your pet company at your hotel until you get back. We'll walk them (if appropriate), feed them, play with them, give them love and snuggles if that's the sort of thing they like. You know, that "spoiling" thing again ;)
Rates will vary depending on the type of visits you choose.

Below is a favorite quote that not only applies to horses, but to dogs as well ....
"At it's finest, rider and horse are joined not by tack, but by trust. Each is totally reliant upon the other. Each is the selfless guardian of the others very well-being." ~ Unknown
Every time I read this quote, it makes me think of the relationships we build with our dogs. As you become more in sync, the leash becomes superfluous, even unnecessary. However, when you do use it, the leash becomes the link between you, where your dog watches for your cue and leadership, and you are aware of your surroundings in order to help and protect your dog. ~ Mary
We offer in your home classes where you'll learn to more effectively communicate with your dog. Your instructor has a passion to help grow the trust and relationship between you and your pet. Not only will you learn how to teach your dog everything from the basic sit-stay to waiting at open doors, but you'll also learn how to read his body language and how he is communicating with you.
Please note that if your pet or home requires more time than scheduled, it will be billed to you.
