If you’re like me, your pet(s) is part of your family and leaving them behind when you go to work or on a trip is very stressful. Aside from someone that is reliable and responsible, you hope for someone who will care for your pet exactly as you would!

Love at Home Pet Sitting offers just that – the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your pet is getting the best possible care, plus loads of love.

As a certified applied animal behavior counselor I’ve been working with animals since 2005. I’m now offering pet sitting – in your home or mine.

Overnights in your home: pets seem to do best in their own, familiar environment and with their daily routine intact. I will care for your fur babies 24 hours while you are away. $85 night for one pet. Additional fees may apply for multiple pets based on requirements. Your dog will not be left alone for longer than 3-4 hours on any given day.
Overnights in my home (single dog only)*: Caring for your pet in my home is easier for me, so if your pet is flexible and you feel that he or she would be fine in my home, you can save some money. I would still keep their daily schedule intact and care for them 24 hours while you’re away. $75/night *This option is not available if you have a highly reactive dog that barks a lot while inside the house, or a dog that is aggressive toward people or other dogs. All dogs must be up to date on vaccinations and flea/tick control.
Basic training, troubleshooting of behavioral problems and ‘training’ walks are available for an additional daily fee.


During overnights or day care, if you require transport of your dog or cat to a scheduled wellness appointment, grooming appointment, or pick up and delivery to/from your home, there is a $25 roundtrip fee.


An additional $20.00 per day for the following holidays: Easter, Labor Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.


My initial in-home consultation is complimentary. During this visit I will gather all of the necessary information to properly care for your pet(s). I will also get acquainted with your fur baby and answer any questions you may have. You will complete a Pet Sitting Agreement and should you decide we are a good fit, I will collect a copy of your house key and a 50% payment for services.


If you have any serious behavior issues with your pet, I offer behavior consultations as well.

Note: I understand emergencies or illnesses may arise and you may need to cancel your trip. Please keep in mind that I reserve the time for you and frequently have to turn additional business away. Cancellations made 24-72 hours prior to your scheduled absence will be charged a 50% cancellation fee. Should my assignment end early for any reason, all scheduled time will be billed.
