Cat Sitting

This is one of our most popular services. Cat lovers know cats are independent and prefer to stay at home, but need daily care for fresh food & water, to be brushed & played with, and have the litter box cleaned. Easy, simple - a great reliable service if you're going away, count on us.

15 minutes: $16.50
30 minutes: $22
45 minutes: $30.25
60 minutes: $38.50

Dog Sitting

Dog lovers know dogs are social creatures that need daily interaction and prefer to stay at home. Dogs are - after all - territorial. If you're working late, we can help with one drop-in visit. If you're planning to go away, three daily visits are common: morning let-out, late afternoon walk, and evening let-out. We'll give fresh food & water, play and give lots of LTC.

15 minutes: $16.50
30 minutes: $22
45 minutes: $30.25
60 minutes: $38.50

Dog Walking

This is one of our most popular services. Dogs need walks for exercise & mental stimulation & elimination & training; outdoors, they can sniff & engage with their environment, and socialize outside the home. If you're unable to walk your dog, like many others because of work, this is the perfect service for you! We come to your home & provide individual walks, one-on-one playtime, on a schedule that meets your needs and those of your dog.

15 minutes: $16.50
30 minutes: $22
45 minutes: $30.25
60 minutes: $38.50

Puppy Visits

Growing puppies need to eat & drink more often than adult dogs, and - because of this - need more bathroom breaks. If your schedule keeps you busy, let us help! We'll come to your home & provide bathroom breaks, playtime, and feed your puppy on a schedule that suits your needs and those of your puppy.

15 minutes: $16.50
30 minutes: $22
45 minutes: $30.25
60 minutes: $38.50

Small Pet Sitting

Rabbits, birds, reptiles, fishes - and any other pet that isn't a child needs lovin' too! We have a sitter to provide care when you need help. From a one-time visit to as many as many visits as you like, we'll come to your home to feed, clean enclosures, administer meds, and give lots of TLC!

House Sitting

When you'll be away for some time and need someone to come and check on your house and your things, let us visit your house to ensure everything is safe and secure. Many insurance companies require security checks to your home once every 48 hours.  Let us protect the integrity and security of the interior and exterior of your home on a regular schedule that suits your needs, and meets your insurance obligations.

15 minutes: $16.50

Going on vacation? Taking a horse to an event? Need someone at the barn for the farrier or vet? Working long hours and need help with your hobby farm? We can come to your home to feed, refill water, muck stalls, administer medication, groom, exercise/play with your hobby farm pets, and give them lots of attention ... all while you're away!

    When not used for making a service visit to my home, I understand that my keys will be kept in a secure, lockable key box.

    I further understand the importance of the need of LP&HS to keep a second key (or set of keys) to my residence since it will allow another sitter to provide continued care to my pet(s) and/or residence if my primary sitter becomes unable to perform his/her responsibilities because of illness, injury, personal emergency, inclement weather, vacation planned in advance, or unavailability for an assignment.

    I further understand that when I require the services of LP&HS, I will request them by telephone or by using the online Reservation Request form at
