Pet Sitting & Dog Walking in Lithia, FL
Top quality in-your-home pet care that can be tailored to your pet’s individual needs always with your pets’ best interest in mind.
No Place Like Home Pet Sitting offers Complimentary Meet and Greets, Vacation and Travel Pet Sitting and Mid-Day Dog Walking and Potty Breaks (Non-Vacation). Using an in-home pet care service is an excellent alternative to boarding your pets while you are away. It is now known that pets feel more secure and adapt more readily to being away from you when they are in the comfort of their own homes.
Our rates listed are best used as a guide and are completely tailored to you and your pet’s individual needs. Since some pets require more attention than others, we offer several different options for you to choose, as you the owner know your pets best and can assess which option is right for your situation. We charge by the time it takes to complete the visit safely and effectively for everyone involved, and not by the number of pets in the home or whether we need to administer medication.
Meet & Greet
Once we have established that we can meet your needs, instructions will then be emailed to you on how to set up and access your private client portal and we will schedule an in person meeting so we can meet you and your pets and learn the routine.
STANDARD VISITS – $25/VISIT
Standard Visits last 30 minutes. Additional 15 minute increments of time may be available on an individual basis for those pets requiring more attention. Quick 15 minute potty break visits may be added as a 3rd or 4th visit only for $18. All visits are done in your home only. Please note: We are not licensed or insured to offer “in our home” boarding.
Standard Visits are great for pets that require feeding/watering, potty time, and playtime. *Dogs require a minimum of 2 standard visits a day, no exceptions. (Not including travel days).
Quick Cat Visits – $18/visit
Cat Standard Visits – $25/visit
Cat Quick Visits: (15 minutes) are ideal for cat-only households who only require food/water and litter box maintenance. *Cats require one visit a day, no exceptions. (Not including travel days).*
Cat Standard Visits: (30 minutes) are ideal for cats who are more social and need additional attention and playtime or those who require insulin and/or other medications.
Mid-Day Dog Walking
These mid day visits are 30-minute walks and/or exercise out of the home or crate, when you are working long hours or are gone for the day.
Mid-day dog walks are guaranteed within a two hour time window (1 hour for puppies under 6 months old). Due to the volume of mid-day clients we have, we cannot commit to an exact time, therefore a window will be established at the initial meet and greet. During the summer months, walks may be shortened due to heat and inclement weather, however, quality time will be spent with your four legged friend in your home. We do not want a dog to suffer from heat exhaustion or burnt paws from walking on scorching hot pavement and will discuss in detail all aspects of safety at the consultation.
For safety reasons, only two dogs from the same household may be walked at the same time. If you have more than two dogs, each pair of dogs will be walked separately. Your dog(s) must be generally controllable while on a leash and you must provide a regular 4-6ft leash – we will not use a Flexi (retractable) leash. Harnesses are recommend for dogs who pull or those dogs who are prone to escaping out of their collars. Doggie bags must also be provided.
Please note: Dog walking services are not available on major holidays, as these visits are reserved for vacation/traveling clients.
Mid-Day Potty Break
These quick visits are ideal for puppies/dogs that only need a quick potty break when you are working long hours or are gone for the day ONLY.
Mid-day potty breaks are guaranteed within a two hour time window (1 hour for puppies under 6 months old). Due to the volume of mid-day clients we have, we cannot commit to an exact time, therefore a window will be established at the initial meet and greet.
Please note: These visits may not be substituted for standard canine vacation pet sitting visits. **Single potty break visits are not available on holidays, as these visits are reserved for vacation/traveling clients.
