Meet-N-Greet Sessions are conducted on the weekends ONLY.  We will schedule them between our normal pet sitting visits.  Meet-n-Greet Sessions REQUIRE a minimum of 7 days advance notice.  No Meet-n-Greet Sessions will be conducted the week before a holiday, the week of a holiday, or the week after a holiday because of heavy workloads during those times.  Please check holiday list for applicable dates.

The first meet-n-greet session is FREE, any meeting thereafter will be $15
BIRD SPECIAL:

We now offer an "every-other day" pet sitting special for BIRDS only.  One visit, every other day will be $17.00 a visit, up to 5 birds.  This includes feeding, cleaning area around cage, etc.  This offer is good for households containing birds only.  NOTE:  Parrots generally require more specialized feeding and should be visited daily (or twice daily). 

Ideally, the safest care of your bird(s) while you are gone is a daily visit, to ensure they have adequate water and food, and to monitor for illnesses or injuries.  If the "every-other-day" service is selected, the owner will be required to sign a separate disclaimer.  Persnickety-Pets cannot be held liable for any injury or death that may occur on dates that we are not scheduled to visit.
AQUARIUM SPECIAL:


We now offer an "every-other day" pet sitting special for AQUARIUMS only.  One visit, every other day will be $17.00 a visit, for up to 10 aquariums or ponds.  This includes feeding and monitoring water levels.  This offer is good for households containing aquariums or ponds, or aquariums and ponds only. 
DOGGIE DOODIE SPECIAL:
a.k.a. Poops and Grins





Here's the SCOOP ON POOP!!  No time to clean up the 'land mines' accumulating in the backyard?    Fido holding his nose when he goes outside?  Neighbors moving "down wind"?  Take advantage of our "Poop Patrol" services.  A once-a-week clean-up, for one dog, is only $16.50 a week.  For each additional dog add $1.  Yards must be of standard size, larger yards will incur an additional charge.  Larger dogs (such as Great Danes) will require an additional fee of $1 per dog.  The preliminary visit (start-up of service), will incur an additional, one-time fee of $10.  Although we can spot a pile at 90 paces, an occasional poop pile may be overlooked but will be erradicated on the next visit.  If your dog has been ill, some piles may not be "pick-up-able".  In these cases, if there is an outside hose, we will be sure to wash the debris away.  Pooper Scooping services will be performed in time slots where no pet sitting is involved, therefore, they can be done at any time of the day. Owner need not be present, however, access to the yard is a must.

HOUSE-SITTING:
No pets??  But you're leaving for vacation and don't want the hassle of stopping the mail or paper and maybe have inside plants that need watering while you are away?  Want to give your house a "lived-in" look and let others know that it is being regularly monitored?  Need pool water levels checked?  For a very nominal fee of $7 daily we will perform the following duties for homes that are alone:

1. Bring in the mail daily
2. Bring in the papers daily
3. Water inside plants as appropriate
4. A cursory check of systems (power outages, water leaks, storm damage, break-ins)
5. Check pool water levels and fill accordingly

By having your house checked daily, we can call you as soon as we notice any problems and ensure that you will have a nice vacation without having to worry about your empty house.  Call today to set up your home's meet-n-greet session :)
