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.
Being away from your pet is hard, whether it’s just for a few hours or several days. But finding reliable, quality care isn’t easy. Daycares and boarding kennels may be stressful and could expose your pet to illness. And relying on friends and family too often can become inconvenient – for them and for you.
With my in-home pet sitting services, you can relax knowing that your dog or cat is being cared for by a professional, dedicated pet sitter in the comfort of your own home. Plus, I’ll make sure your house is safe and secure, too, by giving it that “lived in” look while you’re away.
What Is Included With Pet Sitting?
Visits may include feeding, refreshing pets water bowl at each visit, pet bowl washing, administering medication (oral and topical only), brushing – fur and/or teeth, litter box scooping, picking up pet waste , digital updates and of course lots and lots of love and attention.
Dogs will get a leashed walk around your neighborhood, yes a walk is included with pet sitting! Or, if you prefer, I’ll play with them in your backyard (as long as it’s fenced). Dogs must walk well on a 4′ or a 6′ leash and not be overly aggressive. Retractable leashes will not be used. I’m a fan of the Gentle Leader or any no-pull harness.
Visits also include basic home-care services like home security checks, bringing in your mail and other packages, rotating lights and blinds, watering indoor plants, and taking your trash bins out for pick-up.
