Home is where the pets are...

Pet Sitting

We take the worry out of leaving your pets alone whether it is because of your work schedule, travel for work or a well deserved vacation. While you are gone you can rest assured that we are making sure your pets get the care, attention, and outings they deserve.

Overnight Stays

We offer overnight stays, keeping your pet company, on track with schedules so you can travel or have a weekend away with complete confidence that your house and pets are well taken care of.

Dog Walking

We all need a break and our pets are no different. It might be a visit so your puppy can have a trip outside and a successful potty training moment, an elderly dog that needs to relieve themselves more frequently or a rambunctious dog who needs exercise and interaction to let off some steam. We can make it happen and make everyone's day a little brighter!

Pack Walks

Is your dog a social butterfly or just full of more energy than you know what to do with? Pack walks are a perfect way for them to blow off steam, be part of a group, exercise their minds and bodies, and practice much needed social skills while you're away at work. Best of all; you come home to a relaxed happy pooch that isn't in a rush to get out.

House Checks

We all need peace of mind and feel confident that our houses and belongings are safe. House checks are a great way to ensure that your house is looking 'lived in' and vital checks are completed to protect the status of your house insurance. Let us help you when you're away whether it be for a week or a weekend!

We are bonded, insured, and pet first aid certified!

Our services and qualifications help you ensure your cherished companions are well cared for and your home safe.

First Aid Training Courses

You're a Hero!

Our pets are our greatest source of unconditional love. In their eyes you're their hero and the source of all that is good and wonderful in their lives. When they are not doing well or an accident happens it is emotionally traumatic for both pet and owner especially when you are not sure what to do. Learn skills and techniques that will make you the hero in case of an emergency or illness by taking our First Aid Training Course.
