My Mission: 

I provide pet sitting service for your animals at your own home only.   On the overnight assignments, I pick up your mail, newspaper, packages at the door and take the trash cans to the curb and water the plants.  On the overnights I arrive before dark and leave early in the mornings, feeding and walking the dogs both times.  This service is $64 a night.  For the return visit the next day I charge $20 for a day walk and $22 for a night walk.

I specialize in overnight visits from Carmel Valley to La Costa. I do charge $69  a night for condos and apartments.

I do the overnight visits at very neat, clean, organized homes, with no cameras or alarm systems on during my visits.  I do not share these assignments with family members or neighbors unless they are doing the day walks.  

My goal is to provide pet sitting services 365 days of the year to my clients.  I do not charge extra for holidays plus you can add or cancel an appointment if you call or E-mail me (no texting) by 8 AM that day.  No cancellation fees.  

I have a team of professional pet sitters that have been with me for years, that I have trained them to be perfectionists. We will follow your pet instructions for each of your animals on every assignment.  Just leave the instructions on the kitchen counter on each assignment.  You have an opportunity to meet the assistant when one is assigned to your job.

My assistants love animals and help me with the demands of my dynamic business. Most of them are college graduates, some work during the day at full time jobs and many of them have a home based business. When I travel my assistants can take on your assignment (only) when booked in advance.

When you  travel  and I am on your assignment,  I will call you when I arrive the ( first time) at your home and again on the (last day) of the assignment.  I will send you a picture of your animals during that time.  If you are delayed, let me know I can continue with the job until you get home. Call or E-mail me when you have arrived.

If I am taking care of your animals during the time you are in town, I will leave an animal report card on your kitchen counter.  Day walks are $20 for 1/2 hour and $22 for PM walks. Three dogs or 3 cats $5 extra.

Please make sure that your smoke detectors have new batteries before you vacation. Make sure there is plenty of food for all of your animals before you leave town, otherwise I charge $25 for shopping for their food.
