Vacation Care:

Your Pets Will Thank You Because…

There’s No Place Like Home!

Select 3 or 4 of the following visit types to create your own personalized vacation package. Standard visits are 25-30 minutes in length. A selection of any combination of 4 visits is 5-6 hours between visits, and a selection of any 3 visits is 7-8 hours between visits. Choose whichever suits your pet and will make them most comfortable! Mix up visit types to add time for longer walks or just more companionship and playtime for your furry friend. Households with more than 2 animals generally take more time, and the 45-minute option may be necessary for 1 or 2 visits each day depending upon the number of pets in your home. Give us a call so we can work with you to develop the perfect care plan for your pet(s)!

Vacation care includes bringing in mail and newspaper, rotation of lights, opening/closing blinds and curtains, and putting out the trash to give your home that ‘lived-in’ look. A reasonable number of indoor plants will be watered upon request.  Additional time must be added for watering outdoor plants or gardens so that household chores are not taking time away from the care of your pet, and so that sitters are appropriately compensated for their time.

Standard Vacation Visit – $20.00/visit:  For 1 or 2 pets in the home.
Vacation Visit – 45min – $27.00/visit:  For a longer walk or play-date during the day, and when there are more than 2 pets in the home.  Also a good choice when care is needed for puppies, seniors, or special needs pets requiring additional time and attention.
Vacation Visit – 60min – $35.00/visit:  For pampered pets who crave lots of activity and people time!

Overnight Stays:

Treat Your Pet To The Ultimate In Care!

10-hours – $130/night:  Usually 8pm to 6am

Beyond carrying out your specific instructions during our visits, The DOG Nanny Group sitters listen to your pet(s) and ‘tune-in’ to their emotional state. By doing this, we are better able to care for them and meet their individual needs while you are away. Whether it’s exercise, a mentally challenging game, or just being held and rubbed; we strive to make your pet feel comfortable, confident, secure, and LOVED!

Rates are based on 2 pets in the home. Please consider the time you have allotted for their care when multiple animals, puppies, or special needs pets are involved. Caring for more animals generally requires more time, and additional charges will apply.
