Wag A Tail Pawsitting
We understand the guilt you feel as parents of these family members and the undue stress it puts on your dog(s) when you kennel them. With our overnight pet & house-sitting, your pet(s) will experience the joy of staying in their own homes while you are away. Overnight/weekend dog sitting begins from the moment you leave until the moment you return. Your loved ones will receive the utmost care with lots of recreation and attention, and of course, a treat or two.
Also provided if needed are the little tasks such as bringing in the mail or newspaper, watering house plants, turning lights on and off, adjusting the temperature of the home, etc.
Regular walks help your dog release pent- up energy, allow for daytime socialization with others and encourage exercise and well-being. We can schedule morning, midday, and /or evening walks.
Exercise & socialize your dog in supervised group excursions to leash-free dog parks, hiking trails & golf courses. These field trips are a great way to improve their health & stimulate their minds! As always, safety is our priority. Dogs must be screened beforehand to ensure they are a good fit for our leash-free program.
Let us have one of our furry friends tell you what we do: Well, Sheila understands us and, in some ways, is a lot like us. No, I don’t mean that she is a furry femme fatale or catches tennis balls in her mouth, although I've seen it done. She likes to romp around be it in the snow, the puddles, or the leaves without being tied down to a strict schedule. She is friendly to all those she meets and on our excursions in the parks. Sheila has unconditional love for us. How do we know this? She doesn't get mad at us when we are all muddied and still need to get into her clean car. She rewards us with flavorful biscuits, sometimes even if we’ve done nothing for which to be commended. She smiles lovingly at us and laughs at all the little things we do. She doesn't take us on walks around the block; she takes us to dog parks, golf courses, and rail trails. How cool is that? And when Mommy and Daddy go away, Sheila stays with us at our own homes where we are most comfortable. Whether you are going away overnight, for a weekend, or for a long vacation-dog sitting begins from the moment our parents, so to speak, leave until the moment they return. We receive the utmost care with lots of recreation and attention. Sheila can accommodate most people because of her flexible schedule and can even help out for those “last minute pet care needs.” Okay, so you are probably wondering am I going to break the bank by calling upon Wag A Tail Pawsitting?
