Pet Sitting and Dog Walking
Pet sitting and dog walking is great for busy professionals who work all day and have dogs or cats that need some TLC in the middle of the day. It is perfect for pets who may not do well in a kennel or traditional doggie day care setting. Maybe you have a new puppy or kitten who can’t make it all day, or perhaps you’ve got an unusually long day planned away from home and don’t have anyone to care for your beloved pet. Mid-day dog walking is great as well to give your dog a chance to stretch his/her legs get some exercise and be calmer when you arrive home after a long day of work.
We can even make multiple visits per day so your little buddy can stay in his own home keeping him or her close to their usual routine while you take that long-awaited vacation in paradise. Your pets will be happier and you’ll have peace of mind knowing that they are safe at home in their own bed with an expert who loves pets looking after them. When you call on Sit Stay Bark and Play, there is no need to trouble family, friends, or neighbors in times of need – we’ll be there for you.

Your Home is in Good Hands
There’s also an added element of home security when you call on Sit Stay Bark and Play for pet sitting services. Not only do you have someone checking on your home while you’re away, but we’ll also bring in your mail, turn lights on and off, water plants, open and close drapes and perform other tasks to make your home appear occupied while you are away.
A telephone interview followed by a free on-site consultation will be required for all new customers before making an appointment. During the consultation, we’ll get to know you, your pet, your pet’s routine for feeding, walks, medications, etc. We are here to meet your needs. Two house keys are required (same door or different doors). Other specific requirements will be covered during the consultation. Up-to-date vaccinations are also required. Dogs and cats must be on flea and tick prevention and be healthy, not having any communicable diseases within the last 60 days.
