Services

We offer a broad range of services within a 30 mile radius of  Columbus, Ohio; unless hosting your furry family member, as we accept guests from all over! Also, unlike the national chains, we don’t nickel and dime you with fees for more potty breaks, walks, special snacks/treats, play and cuddle time! We are also bonded and insured and believe this is ESSENTIAL for professional and responsible pet sitters; someone to whom you’re giving the key to your home/your alarm code and someone that you are trusting to take good care of your furry family member. 

We offer transportation services for veterinarian, grooming, pet boarding and community outings.

Also, did you lock yourself out? If we keep your key in our lockbox, we can come and let you in for a small fee; less than a locksmith!  However, if it is after 9pm and before 9am, cost will double; possibly still less than a locksmith! Please call for this service, perhaps repeatedly, as we may be sleeping!

Hamilton Lakes neighbor discounts: Very close by, within 3 miles, 10% off! Within 1 mile, 15% off!!

Hosting your furry family member in the comfort of our home: big yard, 6ft fence, alone or with other guests (ramp for SENIORS and SMALL DOGS with separate fenced in areas), lots of human interaction and love. Individual sleeping and eating areas as well as bowls and beds provided.

Please contact us for more information re: hosting your furry family member. See gallery for pictures of our home and our set up.

IN ORDER TO BE CONSIDERED A POTENTIAL GUEST, YOUR PET MUST BE CURRENT ON NECESSARY VACCINATIONS. THIS INCLUDES RABIES, DISTEMPER, and BORDETELLA.

Your pet must also get along well with other  dogs, kids, and cats. We will have a meet and greet and a mandatory two night trial stay at a 50% off discounted rate (which means we DO NOT take last minute reservations for pets we do not know) to assess appropriateness for longer stays;  no incontinence, destructive behaviors, or fleas. Pets will be considered on a case by case basis as we want this to be the right match for everyone! If we find that your pet has fleas, we will clearly document this and schedule immediate grooming and treatment, at your expense. Current clients that use us for daily dog walks or vacation home visits are able to schedule overnights with us based on appropriateness.

Our home has air conditioning and ceiling fans.  We have pergo flooring in the main area.  We have carpet in the bedrooms.  Pets can sometimes sleep with us, or be crated or closed off behind a gate, depending on their usual habits and our other guests’ needs. See the gallery for photos!

Dogs that are not neutered or spayed will not be accepted as guests.
