Hello! This will be my first summer as a full-time dog-walker. I am very excited to meet and take care of furry and non-furry friends! Some of the services I offer include dog-walking, pet sitting, and overnight care. I take care of all dog breeds, and sizes. I have walked from little guys of 6 lbs to heavy guys of 120 lbs. I understand dogs need constant care and mobility, so I offer different price packages if you prefer walks on a daily-basis or weekly-basis. Let's discuss what works best for everyone!

Factors that impact pet sitting cost

Planning a trip as a pet owner? Hiring a pet sitter is an excellent solution for care for your furry friend. Before you hire a pet sitter, it's important to understand the factors that affect the cost of their services:

  • Time and Duration - Pet sitters usually charge either a daily or hourly rate. The length of time you require care for will affect your final costs. Many pet sitters will also offer package deals and discounts for longer bookings.
  • Your pet’s needs - Consider the frequency of your dog's walks, or your cat's feeding schedule. Different services will have different prices. Some pet sitters also offer extra services like administering medication, grooming, or even behavioral training, which may increase the cost.
  • Location - The cost of pet care will range across the country city-by-city depending on the cost of living in your city area.
  • Years of Experience - The level of experience of the pet sitter will also have a factor on pricing. More experienced sitters, with professional backgrounds in behavioural or medical training may charge a higher rate, than a less specialized sitter.
