Rates & Services:
House Sitting: $50 per 24 hours
This is not the 12-hour, 7 pm to 7 am type housesitting you might have encountered. My schedule is flexible and I can adjust it to best meet your pets needs. I don't charge per pet either. I can care for dogs, cats, chickens, gerbils, parrots...whatever your menagerie requires.
In-home visit for cats and dogs: $20 for 30 minutes, $5 for each additional 15 minutes
During our free 30-minute meet-and-greet, we will discuss how much time your pets require, depending on how many there are, whether they need walks, or whether you need other services such as plant-watering. For most situations, 30 minutes is adequate. For dogs who do not have a dog door to the yard to go potty, I require a minimum of three visits per 24-hour period. If they have access to the yard, the minimum is 2 visits.
Note: Unlike most services, I do not charge extra to administer medications. I don't think you should be penalized for having a sick pet! I am familiar with giving subcutaneous insulin as my own dog was diabetic.
Leash walk for one dog: $20 for 30 minutes
I come to your house and take your dog for a nice walk around your neighborhood. I reinforce good behavior using your preferred commands and methods. Additional dogs walked at the same time are $10 each. I can walk up to two large dogs together or three small dogs. Dogs must be non-aggressive toward other people and dogs who might be walking in your neighborhood. During our free 30-minute meet-and-greet, I will get to know your dog, collect health and behavior information, and answer any questions you have.
Dog bath while visiting: $25
I can bathe your dog while I am already at your house for a visit, walk, or poop scoop. I use your bathtub and dog shampoo. I bring my own towels and I leave your bathroom clean. I towel-dry your dog and leave him or her indoors. As I am not a groomer, I don't trim nails or coats.
Scooping your yard: $25
Boy, don't you wish you didn't have to scoop your yard? I can do it! When I come, I spend up to 30 minutes and I double-bag using my own bags. I then deposit the bags in your garbage can.
NOTE: Keep in mind that these are only base services. If you need arrangements not covered here, we can discuss your needs. It's possible I could housesit if you live nearby or that your dog could stay at my house. Give me a call!
