Happy Pets, Happy Home!
Jeanne and her crew of critter caretakers make leaving my pet behind much easier. They give me peace of mind knowing my furry friend is in good hands with the photos and updates I get during my time away. They are professional, diligent, and most importantly, loving toward my pet as if it was their own. Overall, some of the best pet care I have received.
A walking “sniffari” for your dog - age appropriate and always provided with a generous amount of TLC. A health and safety check for your cat and other pets.
The extra time is perfect for multi pet households, high energy dogs that need a longer outing, and pets that require observation after medication.
This is the best option if you have a full collection of indoor and outdoor pets, one with special needs, or a pet that would enjoy a longer outing or playtime.
