Pet Sitting

In home pet care

Pack Tails pet sitting service is on-site in-home care for your canine(s) and pets whilst you are away for a day, a week or however long an absence. Our pet sit service is a great alternative to boarding your dog in a kennel or your cat in a cattery.  It’s also a great pet care service for those looking at alternatives to crowded and noisy doggy daycare facilities for your new puppy or elderly dog.

From the moment you contact us, we find out everything there is to know about the routine that you and your pet(s) are used to. We take an acute interest in your pet’s individuality and cater for their specific needs.  Prior to the initiation of a Pack Tails pet sit service, we conduct a meet-and-greet with you and your furry family members to comprehensively ascertain their individual needs.

A pet-sit is a one hour visit and includes a 30 minute dog walk, feeding in accordance with your regular routine, water refreshment and pet waste disposal – ensuring your pet’s comfort and security. Additional services, such as mail collection and plant watering, are available at no extra cost, by arrangement. 

Pack Tails pet sitting service also understands that all pets are individual in their daily needs and routines. Therefore this pet-sit service can be tailored to suit your pets need and caters for even the most particular requirements.  While we primarily care for canines, we are more than capable and happy to pet sit any other animals you may have from feline to reptile.  Pack Tails pet sitting service can guarantee your pets remain comfortable in their familiar surroundings whilst receiving personalised one-on-one attention and care.
