...for your pet

Reduced Stress. Your pet stays in its own familiar, secure environment where all the sights, sounds and smells say “Home.”

Diet and Exercise. Customary diet and exercise routines are followed with no interruption to upset your pet.

No “Travel Trauma.” Travel in a vehicle to a relative’s home, a boarding facility or kennel may be upsetting for your pet.

Health Concerns. With a pet sitter, there is minimal exposure to illness from other animals.

...for you

Travel. You won’t be inconvenienced or upset by transporting your pet.

No Imposition. You don’t have to impose on a friend, neighbor or relative to care for your pet. Instead, you can rely on a pet care professional who will put your pet’s needs first.

Security. Your home appears to be occupied although you are away.

Peace of Mind. While you’re away, you can feel confident your pet is in capable, caring hands. 

Special Services. Pet sitters can provide additional home services while caring for your pet, such as watering plants and bringing in the mail.

Most importantly, your pet receives love and personal attention while you are away.

“We love The Dog Nanny because we can keep our dogs at home and in their own environment, they receive all the love and care that they would get from us.”

Mary, owner of Dotti & Lucy
