Pet Services/Rates

In addition to the services listed on this page, each new client will receive an initial consultation before the first job is started. This visit is complimentary and allows the pet sitter to become acquainted with the client, their pet(s) and what tasks are required for the particular job.

Prices will depend on the complexity of the services, the number of visits per day and the number of pets. The base rates generally pertain to up to 4 cats or 2 dogs with no special needs. The rates for special needs services will be considered on a case by case basis.

Once the initial consultation is completed the client may request services at any time. Last minute reservations can be made but during peak seasons and holidays a surcharge may be added.



Holidays require a 50% deposit. Graduated scale refund up to 1 week before. Holidays include Thanksgiving & day after, Christmas Eve and Day, New Year’s Eve and Day, Easter, 4th of July, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day. Surcharge for all holidays is $7.
