We're proud to show our fees for pet sitting, dog walking, and house sitting

Openly publishing our rates and honouring our rates policy, while also guaranteeing the duration of time we will stay with your pet(s),
are key components of our quality assurance - standards of
excellence
commitment.

Our rates are based on how much time you need us to spend at your home (15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes), how many pets are being cared for, if service is being provided on a holiday, and if specialized care / tasks are required. Factored into our rates is our time to drive to and from your home. HST is extra.

The simplest way to know exactly how much we would charge is as follows:

> NEW CLIENT submit a quote request

> RETURNING CLIENT submit a reservation request
