I provide In-Home visits for your dogs of all ages, cats, rodents, snakes, lizards, pigs… Whatever animal you adopt as part of your family I will treat like family. If your pet has any special needs I would be happy to accommodate.
Whether they need exercise, affection, a brushing, bath, litter cleaning, administer medications, etc… whatever makes them more comfortable and keeps them healthy.
Kennel and Boarding alternative. Visiting the pet’s own home is much more ideal than boarding at a kennel. I personalize my professional services to the specific needs of your family pets, my time is dedicated to them. Your pet can be relaxed because they are in their own environment. And you can relax that your pet is well cared for and you don’t have to pack them up and send them off to unfamiliar territory. You won’t need to worry about how they will react or be treated by other animals in the kennel. If your fur baby has dietary issues you don’t want to worry that they are given food at a kennel that will make them sick. Plus, since they are staying in their own homes there is no requirement of the kennel cough (Bordetella) vaccine. All I ask for is proof that every dog, cat or ferret is current on their rabies vaccine, as this is required by law.
Also, through my own research and from talking with others; it’s been noted that some boarders/kennels will not accept elderly dogs/cats, nor will they take puppies/kittens under a certain age. Not all boarders or kennels are open on Holidays or Sundays either. While you are on vacation, give your pet a stay-cation.
If you are out of town I can also bring in your mail, water your plants, rotate lights/blinds, put out trash/recycling for pick up, check that the heat is working in the winter, etc…

In most situations there is no need for me to charge extra for additional animals. My rates are based on my time. As long as I can get all the needs of your pets and household taken care of in a given time, my rate is what it is. I can assess your needs when we meet and will let you know if I feel I require more time to accomplish everything. I don’t care for hidden costs and I am sure you don’t either.
I do not charge extra for administering medications. Again, as long as there is enough time allotted I will do whatever needs to be done to keep your pet comfortable.

My time is valuable and the miles driving is precious minutes away from my client’s pets. Although I am willing to make reasonable adjustments based on your individual circumstances, I like to keep my service area very local. My general service area is my town of Stow, and nearby neighborhoods in Acton, Maynard, Bolton, Hudson, …
Please call me if you have any questions regarding what can be done for your specific pet care needs.
