Can you really put a price on the LOVE you have for your pets?
Ask us about our gift certificates
Effective April 1st, 2022: We are not planning to raise prices at this time. But, when gas prices are over $4.00 at the gas pumps you will see a gas surcharge on your invoices. $2 per visit. (And $10 per day for live-in clients) all of which will go to the pet sitter. Even with this surcharge, we are still below the rates of other companies in the neighboring areas.
HOW IT WORKS AND WHAT YOU NEED TO DO!!
STEP 1: CONTACT US
Our goal is to answer the calls, texts and emails that come in immediately. If we cannot be reached immediately, leave a message and we will return your call/text ASAP and/or return your email ASAP. At this time we will learn, all about your pet and their needs and guide you in finding the right services for you and your pet. We will also get your address and contact numbers, as well as some basic information about your pet.
STEP 2: MEET AND GREET
Before a pet sitting visit can take place, we will have a meet and greet. This is a time for pets, pet sitter, and owner to get acquainted and a time for documenting your pet’s personal preferences as to feeding, walking, playing, likes and dislikes.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be only one complimentary visit. If additional pre-visits are requested, the normal pet sitting fee will be applied.
STEP 3: LET US TAKE CARE OF THE REST!
While you’re away at work or on vacation, this is our chance to shine! We will update you with text messages and emailed service reports each visit to let you know how your pets are doing and how much they are enjoying being pampered! You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your babies are in responsible, reliable hands.

NOTE: How Complex is Your Horse’s Care?
When trying to establish what to pay, think about the following:
- Does the Sitter have to travel some distance? This is especially a consideration if your property is not conveniently located within easy distance of a major centre.
- How many horses are being cared for and are they all well trained with impeccable manners?
- Is your feeding routine complicated? Or do you have a dozen supplements that need adding? What about medications?
- * Do you have a stallion or mares in season? What about foals. Don’t forget hormonal horses are more difficult!!
- Are your horses rugged, double or triple rugged???
- Are your horses stabled? If yes, the stables will need cleaning daily.
- Do you expect the Sitter to poop the paddocks?? Horses can drop up to 18 piles a day. That’s a lot of back breaking work.
- What about weather conditions?? Will someone have to travel through blizzards or blazing heat to tend to your horses??
- Also, don’t forget the routine you whiz through in 30 minutes will take someone else longer! All those shortcuts you’ve established over time are not automatic to someone new.
- When it comes to paying someone to look after your precious horse, I would always err on the side of generous. If the person you employ is capable and caring towards your horse, you are going to want them to come back.
