|A Purrfect Way
Pet Sitting Service
Established in 2000, we are the oldest, most experienced professional pet
and house sitting service in the southern Calvert County, Maryland area.
Our service area includes:
Drum Point/Chesapeake Ranch Estates
Port Republic (Ball Road area only--
we no longer service Parkers Creek Road/Scientists Cliffs Road)
Please note that at this time, we do not cross the bridge in Solomons--
we do not service any areas in St. Mary's County.
We are not a boarding facility, we come into your home to visit your pets.
When you are on vacation or business travel, you can have peace of mind that your
beloved pets and home are safe and secure.
|Please Note: When sending an email, please reference "pet sitting" in the subject line. We
respond to every inquiry that we receive as promptly as possible. If you send us an email and
do not hear back from us within 48 hours, please call us on the phone. There are times when
we experience some delays in receiving emails due to server issues and we do not want to
miss the opportunity to speak with you about our pet sitting service.
Our service tends to get booked up to 3 weeks in advance during peak travel times; holiday
weekends, summer vacations and all major holidays. When you email us, please give us
details on the pets that you have, if any are on medication, the dates that you will need pet
sitting and schedule of visits that you will require (up to 3 times per day). Please allow
enough time prior to your departure date so that we may meet with you and your animals and
go over the details of the assignment.
|Our standard visit is a 30 minutes in length; 45 minute visits are available at an additional cost. In
recent years we have noticed a dramatic increase in the number of new pet sitting services in the
area who offer a 15 minute visit or potty break at a reduced cost. We do not offer a 15 minute
visit unless it is a "house-check" only; if there are pets in your home, we will visit for a
minimum of 30 minutes.
Why? It's simple...we do not think a 15 minute visit is long enough to provide quality
service or get to know your pets and their routines! For just a few dollars more than these brand
new services are charging, you could hire us and get a half hour visit and benefit from over 16
years of experience!! 15 minutes is simply not enough time to bring in the mail, visit with the pets
and provide food, water and a potty break, walk or litter scooping. We are not into "speed
pet-sitting"...we focus on quality sits for those who want the very best for their pets at a
reasonable cost that reflects our dedication and years of experience in the industry.
