The benefits of pet sitting –
for your pets and your peace of mind
- Your pets get to stay in the comfort of their own homes. A lot of people don’t want to send their pet to a kennel during a vacation, where animals can experience anxiety. Others are also uncomfortable leaving their home empty while they’re away.
- Your pets will be cared for by experienced, caring sitters who will spend significant time with them. Our network of professional pet sitters spend quality time with your pets in your house. Pet sitters can spend the night with your pet(s) and/or schedule visits during the day while you’re away.
Pet Sitting Services
Care for your dog, cat, rabbit, fish, or other pets. While you’re away from home, one of our pet sitters can stay at the house or make frequent visits to properly care for all your pets and give them plenty of love and attention.
Keeping up daily routines. Sitters can walk, feed, give medications, play with, and care for your pets in the same daily routine that they are used to, giving them lots of love and attention. While there, sitters can also bring in your mail, open and close curtains, take out the trash and return the empty cans to their usual spots. They can turn lights and sprinklers on and off, and water indoor plants.
Frequent visits. While you’re away, we can have a pet sitter come to your home for visits that last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or one hour. For the sake of continuity, we try to match your pet’s established schedule for food and walks; just tell us your pet sitting preferences.
Overnights. We offer two options; a 12 hour overnight, typically 7pm to 7am, and a 14 hour overnight, typically 6pm to 8am. Each option allows time for evening and morning potty breaks, feeding, and plenty of time for play and snuggles. Midday visits can be scheduled as well.
How many visits do you think most pets need?
For visits only, cats should be visited at least once a day, and dogs should be visited at least three times a day for 30 minutes each or twice a day for an hour each visit.
When do I get to meet my pet sitter?
We will arrange a meeting to introduce you to your pet sitter before your trip, and work with you to create your client profile, which will contain information such as your contact information, emergency contact information, your veterinarian’s contact info, and the specific care that your pets need.
I travel a lot – can I request that the same sitter always come to care for my pets?
We will make every effort for that to happen – the more advance notice you can provide, the more likely we can accommodate your wishes.
Can the pet-sitter feed my fish, too?
Yes, we can care for all your pets, including fish, when you’re away, as long as you give us specific instructions for each pet.
“I have been a client of Canine Companion LA for over 6 years. It is so reassuring to know that when I need to travel out of town my cat is cared for. I used to rely on friends and family who would forgot to come or do the bear minimum. I am so thankful that I found Canine Companion LA! My pet sitters spend quality time with my fluff ball Leo and make sure all of his needs are taken care of.”
“I love Canine Companion! They’ve been walking my dog since I first got him a couple years ago and I trust them to take good care of him while I’m not there. Linda and her team are great – from the text updates and pictures after each walk to being flexible with my schedule and booking last-minute walks, I don’t know what I would do without them! Canine Companion is the best!”
“I only trust Canine Companion with my two dogs, Rocky and Ripley. My dogs are a part of my family so making sure they get out and get love and attention while I’m at work is very important to me. Over the years I’ve also gotten lots of tips to give my dogs a better life; food, treat, and toy recommendations, training tips, and referrals for trainers and great places to get toys and goodies for my dogs too!”
“You cannot ask for a better ‘canine companion’ than Linda. She is caring, compassionate, and concerned, and very educated about dogs. She is responsible, reliable, and trustworthy. My dogs Ruby and Lincoln are the absolute lights of my life and I have total faith in Linda. In all of their 11 years I have never felt this comfortable with anyone. The day Linda came into our lives is a blessing for all of us.”
