  • Thoroughly review your pet care regimen with us
  • Learn about the online scheduling and billing system
  • Arrange our access to the house

Prior to the first day of our services, the following steps are needed:

  • We will send you a confirmation of service, with all the details discussed
  • You can log into our convenient online system and make your payment by credit, debit or e-check.
  • Payment in full is required to confirm all pet sitting reservations.

Jill, the owner, has great instincts in hiring people… We boarded our dog with her several times while we were away.  He didn’t want to come home!!
