What Do We Offer? Peace of Mind.
You have probably never given much thought to just how much time and effort you put into your pet's good health and happiness. When you are gone, many things have to be done on a daily basis to make certain your pets are safe, secure, comfortable and happy. Since 1990, Professional Pet Sitting Etc. has decades of experience in animal care, and we go through the following checklist every time we visit with your pets:
Bringing in the newspaper
Bringing in the mail
Giving each pet clean, fresh water
Giving each pet the fresh food
Giving treats, if allowed
Cleaning up any accidents
Scooping litter boxes, if needed
Having loving playtime with each pet
Taking pets out for a walk, if needed
Making notes for owners
Administering medications, if needed
You do most of these things automatically when you are at home. Isn't it comforting to know that someone is going through a checklist each day and will do them for you while you are away?
Pet Sitting For Long Work Days
(Dog Walk/Mid-Day Let Out)
You can schedule our Regular or Extended visits, you can also add an extra time, if you wish.
The ultimate gift of love for your pet. Most requested Service. All pets need a break during our long work days, double shifts, unexpected or planned overtime. Pets can only go for so long without needing to go out. It can be agonizing for a grown pet to even think of having an accident inside. This service is especially needed for puppies and elderly pets (as for any pet) that cannot go for more than a few hours without needing to be relieved. If you work or are away from home 6 hours or more per day, give your pets the ultimate gift of love and call us for Mid-Day Let Out. WE CAN PROVIDE THIS SERVICE FOR FIRST AND SECOND SHIFTS. A trained and qualified Professional Pet Sitter will let your pet out to go to the bathroom, get some fresh air, stretch and let off some anxiety, play with toys or play ball, have some treats and always get lots of TLC and personal attention during the day while you are away.
This is just for the dogs who need some extra loving and bathroom breaks during your busy schedule. We will not be caring for other pets in the home or bringing in your mail/newspapers because you will be there every day. If you need extra help with pooper scooping or litterbox scooping, we do have added services if you wish for us to do that at mid day.
Discounts available for Gold Plan Mid Day Service for those who sign up for 6 months, 1 year and longer.
Pet Care Visits
Pet Sitting for Vacations, Day Trips, Business Trips, Hospitalization or for Any Reason
You can schedule our Regular or Extended visits, you can also add an extra time, if you wish.
Your pet will enjoy staying home during your travels, in the event of your illness or hospitalization, or for any other reason knowing that a petsitter who loves animals will visit each day. You will feel secure, in the knowledge, that someone experienced and responsible will be caring for your beloved pet. If you are disabled or recovering from surgery, Etc. - We can come in and help with your pet care needs. We can do as little as one visit or as long as six months (or longer). Let us know what you need.
Our pet sitters will come to your home, make sure that your pets have fresh water, food, get a bathroom break, scoop litterboxes, and bring in your mail and newspapers. All pets in the home will be included in all scheduled pet care visits. Please do not ask us to ignore any pets in the home, because we can not.
Meet a Pet Sitter
We put on hundreds of new clients every year, and due to our great reputation many choose not to meet a pet sitter, however, you can choose to meet a pet sitter to make you feel more comfortable. We can schedule a regular visit after you register with us, to meet your pet sitter. Please remember, that whatever you want your pet sitter to know, must be written down. We never commit anything to memory, that way if your pet sitter ever became ill, had a family emergency, vacation or whatever, any one of our great pet sitters must have the same information to take as good of care of your pets, as your last pet sitter. Also, we like to have the same pet sitter taking care or your pets every time you need us. It makes it much easier for schedules, payroll, and for you and your pets. However, if your pet sitter can not care for your pets for any reason, then we will need to schedule any one of our great pet sitters to make sure your pets are cared for because that is our top priority.

Emergency Pet Sitting
Some people use us for emergencies. They may have a loved one who is sick and may need to leave their pets quickly, or people who have a medical condition may require unexpected hospital stays, or unexpected business trips, etc. We are here for any emergency or unexpected situation. We will care for your pets while you can go where you need to be.
Do you hate to cleaning the litter box but love your cats? Let us help you. We can come Monday - Friday or seven days a week and scoop your litter box for you, give fresh food, water and some loving attention to your kitties while you are at work, home or vacation. Veterinarians recommend that litter boxes are scooped once per day, ideally twice per day. Clean litter boxes may help prevent elimination problems around your home. No more litter box duty for you, let us do it for you.
Pooper Scooping of your yard
We can schedule a time to clean your yard of pet waste, while we are pet sitting, on a weekly basis or once in a while.
Doggie Day Care
(very limited and currently not available)
Your pet can come stay with us for the day while you are at work or away for the day.
Overnight Stays in a pet sitter's home
If your pet hates to stay alone, we may be able to arrange an overnight stay in a pet sitters' home. However, the whole reason for pet sitting is to be less stressed on your pets in their own home evironment and every time you bring your pet some where to stay, they become stressed.
Overnight Stays in your home
If your pet hates to stay alone, we may be able to arrange an overnight stay. We can schedule a sitter to stay in your home with your pet from aproximately 9pm-ish to 6 am-ish. You must provide clean bed and linen, home must be safe and secure. (limited, book VERY early).
Transportation for Your Pet
If your pet has an appointment to go to the veterinarian, the groomer, or anywhere else, and you are not going to be available (can't take the time off from work, etc.) we can pick up your pet, take them where they need to be and drop them off again at home. Charged by time, gas and availbility. (very limited and not always available)
If your pet is on any kind of medications that are required by your veterinarian, we will keep your pet on schedule medically. In addition to antibiotics, pills, and ointments, we are able to help with diabetic pets with insulin, pets with kidney problems and needing fluid therapy, seizure medications, etc. (Injections for fluids or medications are not available in all areas). We can also help with senior pets and their special needs.
Some pets are on restricted or special diets. We will try to keep with your pets' daily diet.
Emergency Backup System
Your pets will be cared for by a Primary Care Pet Sitter. Your pet will be comfortable knowing and loving the same person for the times you are away. But if anything should happen to the Primary Care Pet Sitter (such as family emergency, illness, full schedule, vacations), we have 30+ trained professionals in our emergency backup system. This way, your pet will always be cared for, which is top priority.
Private Obedience Classes
This is an alternative to classroom obedience for people who do not like that style. It is also for people who may be afraid of other dogs, or own aggressive dogs themselves, or may have flunked classroom obedience - whatever the reason. We will teach you to train your dog in basic obedience and how you and your pet can live in harmony. The dogs we have trained in the past have been regular everyday pets to extreme abuse cases with horrible problems. Classes are 6 week courses, that are held once weekly for a half hour, at your home. Private obedience classes are tailored and individualized to your specific needs, problems and learning. (very limited and not always available)
Pet Problem/Dog Owner Counseling
This service is FREE for two months when in obedience classes. This service can help with many problems, most over the phone. We have many tried and true solutions that work well, if owners are willing to follow the steps.
We can come to your home and clip nails on your pet (no birds or exotics), so as not to traumatize you or your pet by bringing them elsewhere. Not available in all areas.
Pet Loss Grief Counseling
If you are so unfortunate as to lose a beloved pet, we may be able to help. Many adults go through a tough time when friends and family members just do not understand how hard it is to lose a beloved pet. Many children benefit also when talking with someone who understands about their terrible loss, which may also be the first time they have to deal with death.
Wills - What Will Happen to Your Pets, If Something Happens To You?
A few of our thoughtful caring clients have added our service to their wills. For some, we are to care for their pets until good permanent homes are found for their pets. Other clients wish for us to transport their pets to the pre-arranged permanent home. Call us with your wishes and then fill out your will for the care and safety of your most beloved pets when you can't be there.
