THE PET SITTING CONCEPT
Simply put, pet sitting is defined as the act of caring for a pet in its own home while the owner is away. While boarding is a great option for some pet owners, pet sitting offers pets the ability to stay in their own home where they are most comfortable. Care is personalized to the specifications of the owner, and an animals life is less interupted as there is no travel for them! In addition, since pet sitting is charged by visits and time (not by the number of pets), families with multiple pets may see great cost savings! It also offers owners the convience of being able to just pick up and go - once you're a client with Rogues and Rascals all you need do is call and you can be added to our schedule.
As pet sitters, we come to your home one or more times per day each day that you are gone in order to attend to your pets' needs. It's as simple as that.
HOW IT WORKS
All new pet-sitting clients will receive one free 30-minute consultation before the beginning of their first pet sitting booking. During this consultation, we will go over all your needs and fill out the necessary forms. At this time clients are required to make a deposit of 50% of their total or estimated service amount to book their spot.
These are just some of the basic services that are automatically covered: Feeding, Watering, Exercising, Playtime, Litter Box Cleaning, Fish Feeding, Medicating, and Mess Cleanup
Pet sitting also includes mail and newspaper retrieval, plant watering (may incur extra charges if excessive), bird feeding, turning on/off lights, and other household needs as required.
PET SITTING PRICING
Our basic fee covers all of your pets for one fee!
$20.00 - 20-30 minutes

If you'd like your pet(s) to have extra playtime, or you have additional services that will run over our standard visit time, this is the perfect option for you!
