Adult Dogs: Adult dogs need regular exercise to ensure good physical and mental health. Owners who work long hours can depend on us to walk their dogs during the week. Crated dogs are in particular need of a mid-day break. Over-crating and under exercising can result in a hyperactive, under-socialized dog who is harder to live with and train. The 203 Pet Walkers often work with clients on weaning dogs from their crate.
Older Dogs: Older dogs need more frequent bathroom breaks than when they were young. When older dogs have accidents they become stressed because they have been trained to go outside but just can't "hold it" like they used to. A frustrated owner may then end up confining the older dog. We can make daily afternoon visits to give the elderly dog his/her bathroom break. This keeps both dog and owner happy!
A professional pet sitter will visit your pet s in their home to give them personalized attention and maintain their daily routine. Your pet sitter can administer medication if needed. Each visit is 20-30 minutes long. We can visit 1-4 times per day depending on your pet’s particular needs.
In addition to looking after your pet’s needs, we also provide added home security by bringing in mail and newspapers, alternating lights, raising and lowering blinds, and watering plants.
Overnight Pet Sitting
In addition to looking after your pet’s needs, we also provide added home security by bringing in mail and newspapers, alternating lights, raising and lowering blinds, and watering plants
We also offer overnight pet care for those pets who prefer to have a human with them at night. Our clients can feel secure knowing that their home has an added measure of security that overnight pet care provides.
The overnight pet sit entails a dinner time visit, the overnight stay and breakfast. If an additional visits are required a mid-day walk rate will apply.
Keep in mind your pet sitter may have other pet sitting clients , and will be using your home as his/her home base. The time spent with your pets will vary based on your sitter’s schedule, but will always include the minimum time stated above.
Due to the exclusivity of overnight pet care reservations, we must decline any other overnight requests that coincide with your reservation. Therefore, any overnight pet care reservation requires a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking. The balance will be due at the start of the reservation.
Sleeping Arrangements: Please let your sitter know which room you would like him/her to sleep in during his/her stay. The pet sitter will strip the bed and put linens in the washer at the end of his/her stay.
Food: Your pet sitter will bring his/her own food, but may need to use your stove, microwave, etc. Please let your pet sitter and the office know if there are any restrictions.
TV/Phone: Your pet sitter may like to hang out with your pet(s) and watch T.V. or need to use the phone for local calls. Please let your pet sitter & the office know if there are any special instructions or restrictions.
Other: We understand that each home and daily pet care routine is unique. Please help us care for your home and pets better by letting us know any special instructions that may be unique to your home and/or pets. Please make sure to provide both the office and your pet sitter with any special instructions.
Dog Obedience Training
I am an ABC (Animal Behavior College) certified dog trainer. I use the latest in positive motivational techniques, to make training enjoyable for both you and your puppy/adult dog. I also do Doggy Manners classes. If your dog has a specific behavior problem I can work with you to correct the problem.
All dogs should have some kind of training. The earlier in its life the better (puppy training can begin as early as 8 weeks). Training helps open communication and strengthen the bond between the dog and you. Proper training helps your dog to:
◦ Learn useful commands
◦ Know where he or she stands in the "pack"
◦ Learn to respect you as a leader and trusted friend
◦ Become more confident and predictable
◦ Enjoy more freedom
◦ Lead a happier, healthier life
