Paula did a good job watching our little dog Thor and the week went well till the pick-up. When I confirmed his stay I put in the pickup time of between 8 and 9 pm and when I showed up at 8:15, Paula appeared to to be very upset with me. Her cutoff pickup time must be 7 pm. which I was unaware of. I should have been told this was not an acceptable ...

Paula was amazing! Our Ella came home happy and healthy! We received pictures and text messages throughout her stay. Paula is so attentive and very loving. We will continue to use her and I know Ella would love to go back and visit!

We "Sit" So Your Pet Can "Stay"

Your fur-kid will stay in our home in the country and have a great time while you are away.
There is always someone home and we spoil your pooch while they are here as our guest. We do everything possible to make your pet feel right at home and comfortable. We have a fenced in front yard and a separate fenced in back yard with plenty of room to run and play.
Have peace of ...

What Paula would like to know about your dog

I do not have any breed preferences. I love them all, large and small. I do need to be sure that the dog is "dog friendly" before accepting the pet as a guests, as there are other dogs here.
I would also need to know of any special needs they might have.
It would be nice to know things such as: if they are afraid of storms, fireworks, noises, etc. Would they be more comfortable in a crate at night or loose in the house? Do they give you a signal when they need to go potty?
Do they like to play with other dogs or do they need their own space? These are the kind of questions I would ask the pet's owner.

When Paula watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We do have the fenced in yards, but if your pet likes to be walked on a leash for exercise, we live at the end of a dead end road and we are in the country, with few houses around, so not much traffic to worry about.
Your dog would be walked on a leash to prevent him from running away. We are very careful about those things.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your fur-kid will sleep inside our home pretty much anywhere he wants. If your pooch likes to be crated (feels more secure) we have crates but if your pet is used to sleeping loose on a doggie bed or a nice blanket, we have that also. You may bring your own bed or blanket if you think your pet would prefer it's own. We have been known to let a little dog sleep in bed with us if they are afraid and they are used to that.

Time I'll spend with your dog
My husband is retired now and both of us are usually always home so your pet would not be alone. Your fur-kid will most likely follow us all around the house and end of sitting on one of our laps. If your pooch likes to play fetch or other such doggie games, we enjoy doing that too.

Time I'll spend with your dog
This would depend upon the type of service requested. If you are needing a sitter to stay overnight, generally the sitter would be at your home from a minimum of dinnertime (early P.M.) till after breakfast (late A.M). If needed, the service can be extended for up to 24 hours a day.
If the service is a "visit" only, the visits are for a minimum of one hour with your pet. Keep in mind, that dogs would need generally 3 visits a day and cats a minimum of one visit every day. This can end up for the service to actually cost more than an overnight stay. (Because of gas prices)

Extra house-sitting services
Yes, most light tasks are included at no extra charge. Depending on the service needed, there might be an additional charge for some tasks and that would be discussed when reserving our services.
