Services, Pricing and Policies
Below you will find our professional pet sitting services, pricing and policies. We provide care for most domestic pets including dogs, cats, fish, reptiles and birds. All vacation services require at least one visit per day for cats and three visits per day for dogs unless other arrangements are made. Please confirm your reservation with our office before leaving town. It is important that you take a headcount and make sure pets are all inside your house before you leave. PWP is not responsible for pets left unattended outside.

Our services may cost a little more but we go that extra mile. We stay a little longer, keep accurate daily notes on what we do and most of all give your pets love and attention so they will be calm and content while you are away. As a husband and wife team, we frequently show up together to socialize and exercise your pets and ensure that your home is kept secure.

Meet and Greet:
This pre-service meeting is free. We meet and interact with your pets to decide if we are right for you. We discuss the detailed services you need and fill out the necessary service contract should you decide to use PWP. At this meeting please provide 1 set of tested house keys which are confidentially coded and kept in a safe. Keys can be kept on file or returned to you after the last visit. We are insured and bonded for your peace of mind. Our PWP press kit will be provided at this visit.
