Reno Pet Sitter Rates

Pet Sitting Reno

Service area is limited to 89509 and 89519 

Initial Consultation

Pet sitting Reno – Before starting pet sitting services for new clients, I’ll schedule a consult to meet you and your pets in your home. This meeting allows me to become acquainted with you and your pets, learn about any specific needs your pet or home may have, and work with you to set up a customized pet sitting schedule. This visit is required for all new clients and must be scheduled at least 3 days prior to your departure.

Drop-in Pet Sitting

Drop-in pet sitting is perfect for the pet that doesn’t need a companion to sleep-over, or someone to sit with them all day long.  While you are away I’ll visit your pet throughout the day, staying as close to their normal routine as possible.

My pet sitting service allows you to take off for the day, go on vacation, a business trip, or get away for the weekend and know that your furry family member will be well cared for in the comfort and security of their own home. 

Customize a schedule to fit the needs of your pet.

I provide a variety of services to best meet the needs of your pet that may include: feeding, pet bowl washing, a walk, playtime, potty breaks, pet accident clean up, litter box scooping, yard waste clean up, administrating medication, and of course lots of love and attention.

While you are away I will keep in touch with you via text or email updates to let you know that although your pet misses you, he is happy!

After we’re done walking or playing I’ll give your dog fresh water and a treat.
