ADVENTURES:

  • Excursions: Car ride, wind in their hair/fur, driving to the park or their favorite place = Time Above + Mileage. Please note that I do not take dogs to the dog park due to liability issues.

  • Pet Taxi: Visit to take them to the vet or groomers, then = Time Above + Mileage.

  • Wrightsville Beach Staycation Adventure: Only during off season. Must have had a previous walking visits with me to prove to be well-behaved on leash. Also, must sign that they’ve been to the beach several times before our trip.

  • Playdate with Gracie: Can bring them over to my house for a backyard playdate or (doggy) pool party with my super friendly & spunky mini Goldendoodle, Gracie. Or can bring her over for socialization & fun.

TREATS & MENTAL EXERCISE:

  • Special "High Value" Treats: I can prepare healthy, stuffed Kongs, “pup”sicles, etc. Or provide bully sticks or frozen marrow bones. For cats can bring them fresh/live catnip or “cat grass”.

  • Coming Soon … Furbo Pet Camera Rental: Would you like to check in o watch dog/cat when your away & toss treats. Has 2-way audio & visual, plus movement notices & “selfie” alerts to see them having fun solo … or talking to them in the middle of naughty shenanigans!

  • Enrichment Toys & Games: I can bring a slew of interactive toys, which gives the pups mental exercise in addition too physical exercise. Great for puppies or other high energy dogs, as well as those with separation anxiety. I can also run commands/tricks with them, play “Find It” with treats, etc.

  • Positive Reinforcement Practice: While I am not a trainer, I am very familiar with training with positive (clicker &/or treat-based) training methods. Good for establishing a trusting Alpha status - that I am there to take care of them. Helps with acting out, regressing, eases anxiety, and helps with leash manners.

 

FEES:

  • Meet & Greet Consult ($25): Meeting to get to know you, your pet(s) & any home needs.

  • Extra Pet Fee ($5 each): More than a 2-pet household, if dogs can be walked together.

  • Extra Walks: ($10 each): For a 20 min walk.

  • Puppy Fees: Aka, “Trouble Patrol”($10-50): Anyone that has raised a puppy knows it can be a full-time job … Potty training, frequent potty breaks, clean ups, teething, chewing/destroying everything in sight, non-stop energy & adorably needing attention & supervision! Also, the first few times that puppies or young dogs are away from their parents (especially Covid puppies), they tend to regress … having accidents again, counter surfing, and generally trying to “pull one over” on the babysitter.

  • Medicine Administration ($5-10): Range includes basic pills/supplements in Pill Pockets or peanut butter, to Insulin injections and pets that are aggressively resistant to medical care. While I’m not a vet tech, I have lived with my own senior pets with medical issues. And have dealt with a lot of medical issues with clients over twenty yrs.

  • Behavioral Work: I get such a joy working with pets that have behavioral issues, whether it is severe separation anxiety to aggression. I’m not a trainer or behaviorist, but I’ve seen a lot! … Breaking up clients’ dogs that fight too aggressively together, are severely dog/human reactive on walks or have intense fears. Plus, pets that bite, hiss & scratch or are skilled escape artists. I might need to charge a bit more than the base price after our Meet & Greet evaluation if it seems like there will be significant time or effort involved in care. That’s why I have a-la-carte services. Many sitters don’t have the knowledge & experience to handle these things without interrupting your vacation. Or they won’t come back to sit again. 

  • Holiday Fees:  (Varies $5-$15) New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving (Thurs & Friday), Christmas Holiday (24th & 25th).
