Pet Sitting Service
Established in 2000, we are the oldest, most experienced professional pet
and house sitting service in the southern Calvert County, Maryland area.
We are not a boarding facility, we come into your home to visit your pets.
When you are on vacation or business travel, you can have peace of mind that your
beloved pets and home are safe and secure.
Service Area Update as of May 1, 2017:
Please Note! We have extended our service area!! If you have CATS, fish, birds or
other small animals and only need once daily visits and you are not particular about the
time of day that we visit, we will now travel to the Wildewood/St.Andrew's
Church Road area in St. Mary's County, MD and we extend this service
up to Dares Beach Road area in Prince Frederick, Calvert County, MD.
For cats and small dogs or other animals needing twice or three times daily
visits, our service area includes Solomons Island to Port Republic. At this time,
we do not travel into the Scientists Cliffs "Gates" but we know another service
in the area who will help if you live in that community.
|Please Note: When sending an email, please reference "pet sitting" in the subject line. We
respond to every inquiry that we receive as promptly as possible. If you send us an email and
do not hear back from us within 48 hours, please call us on the phone. There are times when
we experience some delays in receiving emails due to server issues and we do not want to
miss the opportunity to speak with you about our pet sitting service.
Our service tends to get booked up to 3 weeks in advance during peak travel times; holiday
weekends, summer vacations and all major holidays. When you email us, please give us
details on the pets that you have, if any are on medication, the dates that you will need pet
sitting and schedule of visits that you will require (up to 3 times per day). Please allow
enough time prior to your departure date so that we may meet with you and your animals and
go over the details of the assignment.
|Our standard visit is a 30 minutes in length; 45 minute visits are available at an additional cost. In
recent years we have noticed a dramatic increase in the number of new pet sitting services in the
area who offer a 15 minute visit or potty break at a reduced cost. We do not offer a 15 minute
visit unless it is a "house-check" only; if there are pets in your home, we will visit for a
minimum of 30 minutes.
Why? It's simple...we do not think a 15 minute visit is long enough to provide quality
service or get to know your pets and their routines! For just a few dollars more than these brand
new services are charging, you could hire us and get a half hour visit and benefit from over 17
years of experience!! 15 minutes is simply not enough time to bring in the mail, visit with the pets
and provide food, water and a potty break, walk or litter scooping. We are not into "speed pet-
sitting"...we focus on quality sits for those who want the very best for their pets at a reasonable
cost that reflects our dedication and years of experience in the industry.
Several services offer this reduced time visit for a "puppy potty break"...but as anyone
who has been around animals knows, puppies get easily distracted and their visit may actually
need to be longer, and not shortened, in order for them to get a
quality potty break and socialization that is so important when they are young!!
