I (and my whole family) have been blessed with fantastic pets my whole life. I’ve helped deliver pups and kitties, and taken care of them very well. I’ve watched pets for family and friends, and decided to branch out, and watch other people’s pets. I’m trustworthy, and animals tend to love me! Give me a chance to earn your trust, and let me work for you!

It's all in the voice 😁 dogs love me and get attached as easily as they do because I instantly show no fear, big or small and I approach them with my kind, loving, and gentle self and it's a 50/50 percent chance that they're either going to rip my hand off or lick my face. Which it usually ends up being the second one (: I have been up front and personal with over 15 litters of puppies being brought into the world since I was 16. At one point in time, we had at least 15 dogs in our home. I may not have ever been paid or been able to put this on paper as a profession or had federal taxes taken out, but I consider it a part of my everyday life

We want to help you understand your pet as much as we can help your pets understand you. We're a group of friends who bonded over animal care since college. One focused on animal psychology, one in equine veterinary, one in internal medicine & radiology. Combining our love for pets and desire to help human-animal relations to include good behaving pets in daily routines make us the Pet Care Specialists in our neighborhood. The important stuff we've got covered, too: We're fully insured & bond...

My name is Lori and I am a nurse as well as a pet sitter, walker and companion for your furry family members. My son and I have 2 horses, a dog and two turtles. I have experience as a vet tech prior to obtaining my nursing license. My happy, zen place is when I'm with animals. When I am around any type of animals all my stress just goes away. We have been foster parents to a few different wonderful dogs and it's such a great feeling knowing you were part of them getting a forever home. I worked with a wonderful family in Las Cruces, N.M. where I sat for five cats and three dogs for one to two weeks. I also can do lite cleaning, vacuuming, etc...

Your dog sitting questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much do dog sitters charge?

Dog sitters charge $10 to $20 per hour for a drop-in visit or $35 to $65 per night, depending on your location. Dog sitters may charge more for holidays or if your home is outside of their service area. Costs may also increase if your dog has special needs.

Do you tip dog sitters?

While dog sitters do not expect a tip, tipping 15% to 20% of the total bill is common. Tip on the low end if your sitter did everything they agreed to do. Consider tipping more if they exceeded your expectations or handled any unexpected problems or emergencies.

What do dog sitters do?

Dog sitters come to your home and care for your dog while you are away. Drop-in visits typically last 30 minutes and include feeding, walking, and some play or cuddle time. Overnight visits may be at your home or the sitter's home and give your dog more time and attention than a drop-in visit.

Hiring a dog sitter gives your dog more personalized attention than a pet boarding facility and is a great option for dogs who deal with separation anxiety, dogs who do not do well in a kennel or around other animals, and older, less agile dogs.

Do dog sitters stay overnight?

Most dog sitters offer drop-in visits and overnight options, with overnight stays typically costing more. Many dogs do fine with only drop-in visits for feeding, walking, and some attention. Consider overnight sittings if your pet has high separation anxiety or needs more attention than a short visit provides.

How do I choose the best dog sitter near me?

When searching for a dog sitter, be sure to:

  • Choose a sitter who has a licensed and insured business.
  • Ask if they belong to any professional organizations, such as the National association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS), Professional United Pet Sitters (P.U.P.S.), or the Association of Pet Sitting Excellence (APSE).
  • Review their profile and feedback on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask for and check their references.
  • Arrange a meet and greet beforehand to make sure he or she is a good fit for both you and your dog.

What questions should I ask when hiring a dog sitter?

Ask the following questions to ensure you find the best dog sitter near you:

  • What experience do you have?
  • Do you specialize in specific animals or breeds?
  • Do you belong to any professional organizations?
  • Are you trained in pet CPR?
  • Can we schedule a meet and greet beforehand?
  • What is included in your standard rate?
  • What is the rate if I have more than one dog?
  • How and when do I pay for the service?
  • Do you offer dog monitoring service?
  • How long do you stay?
  • Can you give my dog medication?
  • Do you offer any house-sitting services in addition to dog sitting?
  • What is your protocol if there is an emergency or if my dog needs immediate medical attention?
  • How do I get in touch with you while I'm away?
  • Will you update me after each visit?
