Companionship for your dog. We pick your pups up at your home, spending time at the park, playing games indoors, enjoying each other's company and doing “regular” things during which your furball can be right by our side. Your four-legged will be delivered back to you having had much attention, ready for a nap.

No dog will ever, ever be left in a car alone or tied in front of a store!


Why we love snow

Ready-key Program:

We ask for two keys to your home, and hold on to the keys for future appointments. The keys are tagged with the animal's name(s), and no other identifier. One key remains with us almost all the time. This is handy in unexpected situations, when clients must leave town with little notice. The other is held with full written visit instructions in our “emergency kit” materials at our home office in case an emergency situation arises on our end (necessitating a back-up caregiver). We ask for your keys when you choose us as your animal caretaker, and will return them whenever you wish. If you choose not to leave your keys with us long-term, there is a $5 charge per trip for each subsequent key pick-up and drop-off.
