PET SITTING SERVICES
While most of us wish we could always have our pets with us, it isn’t always an option. Kenneling dogs is a thing of the past, and most pets are at their happiest remaining in their own familiar, comfortable environment. Hiring a professionally trained, in-your-home pet sitter is the ideal way to keep stress levels low with the added benefit of having your home look and be occupied.
Queenie’s Pets’® caregivers are your pets’ surrogate family and your most trusted resource when you need to travel. We can visit your pets as many times each day as you need, and we’ll also spend the night to keep everyone safe and sound around the clock.
Queenie’s Pets® pet sitting services have a structured outline, but the details are customized to the needs of your furry, scaly, or feathery family members to ensure that we are meeting – and even exceeding – their needs in your absence.
Dog care is offered in the structure of overnight stays with added visits in between/surrounding the sleepover hours to ensure your dog is never alone for too long. Mirroring a typical work-day structure to which your pet might be accustomed, our overnight stays are a guaranteed 12 hours – 8pm to 8am – offering an outing upon our arrival, an outing before bedtime, and another outing before we leave in the morning. Between the outings, there’s assuredly a lot of cuddling and relaxing happening! Feedings and medications are, of course, handled at appropriate intervals as well.
If your pup is used to sleeping in the bed with you, they get to sleep in bed with their caregiver. If your pup knows they must go into their crate when you say “bedtime!,” their Queenie’s caregiver will do the same – or any other nighttime routine that keeps that in their comfort zone.
Between the overnights, we offer visits, either 30 or 60 minute in length, private or social, at either four or eight hour stretches. You can mix-and-match or have each day be the same. We are here to co-create with you the best experience for your pets.
If you will simply be gone for a day trip, we will work together with you and space your visits/walks according to your expected departure and return times.
Please note that, due to liability concerns, we will not share caregiving with anyone that is not a Queenie’s Pets® staff member. A “shared caregiving” agreement must be signed if you expect anyone else to have access to your home whilst we are assigned caregivers for your pets and house.
If your household is made up of both dogs and cats, your pet sitting structure will fall under the dog care outline, and cat care will be included, unless there are any extraordinary care needs (timed medication, more than three cats, etc.). The needs (and wants!) of all of your pets will be met within the structures we offer and you select!
All animals in Queenie’s care require a minimum of once-a-day visits, with rare exception (e.g., some reptiles that do not require regular food or water intake and do not require human handling). Our visits can include: feeding, water refreshing, playing, cage cleaning (where appropriate), out-of-cage-time (where appropriate), filling of foraging toys, checking on heat or cooling sources, and more. If your exotic is a breed or species with which we have less familiarity, we will let you know that, and look forward to learning more about their care needs!
Pricing for cage, tank and exotic pets will be quoted upon learning more about their care needs at your Meet-n-Greet.
