A no-fee orientation will be arranged prior to my services (approximately 40–45 minutes). Each pet sit visit is about 30-45 minutes long and includes the services below and as agreed upon by contract. There may be additional charges for animals with special needs.

  • Personal attention – talking, petting, back and ear scratches, etc.
  • Feed/Water
  • Wash pet dishes
  • Litter box care and/or poop patrol
  • Play time
  • Brushing
  • Administer medications
  • Email or telephone updates
  • Written report of daily activities

Optional home care services as required (at no additional cost):

  • Collection of mail and newspaper
  • Garbage/recycle container collection
  • Adjusting lights/blinds /curtains
  • Watering house plants
  • House security

Important: I will not leave a key locked inside your home or hidden outside your home on the last visit. Keys will only be released to clients or their designated representative.

Note: Jobs are not booked until the service agreement is signed.

I will confirm dates a day or two before the first scheduled visit.

Ready Key Service

Idle Paws Pet Sitting also offers free Ready Key service for pet owners interested in the convenience and cost savings of having a copy of their house key safely retained by Idle Paws Pet Sitting for use during future scheduled visits.

For the first pet sit I will not charge for key pick-up and return. Thereafter, if you choose not to participate in the key service program, I will be happy to pick up and return your key for a fee of $5.00 for each pick-up and each return.
