  • 🐾 Why should a pet owner use a pet sitter?
    Many veterinarians and pet experts believe that keeping pets in their familiar surroundings helps to alleviate the stress imposed when their owners have to leave home. Pets are then also able to maintain their diet and exercise routine, and enjoy the personal attention provided by a pet sitter. This also eliminates the trauma of being transported and minimizes their exposure to illnesses of other animals.

We provide exceptional care to our pet clients while delivering great service to our human clients. This means we travel to our client’s homes to care for their pets.

  • 🐾 What are the benefits of in-home pet sitting?
    When it comes to comfort, there’s no place like home! Just like us, pets enjoy being in the comfort of their own home. In-home pet sitting allows your pet(s) to stay in their familiar, secure environment, preventing any stress that might be caused by having to travel to and stay in an unfamiliar place. At home, a pet’s routine stays the same, ensuring consistent sleep and meals. You won’t need to worry about your pet being exposed to common illnesses that can be passed from other animals, such as kennel cough or fleas. Most of all, your pet will receive loving, personalized care from a companion they will soon call their friend.

  • 🐾 Will I receive care visit updates?
    You will always receive an update after every care visit with your pet. These updates will be sent through your Time To Pet portal. We will update you on how the visit went and even send pictures. These updates will occur after the visit is completed. Keep in mind, this may not always be the scheduled end time of the visit/walk, etc.
  • 🐾 Do I have to schedule every care visit or can I have a regular auto-renewing schedule?
