The first time we meet is during the initial registration meeting where both you and your pet babies meet Granny. At this time, Granny asks lots of questions about the pet babies. Every house has family rules; these rules are about special routines and habits of the pet babies. Granny wants to know the important things. Which are the favorite toys, what are the special treats, and when and how to give them!
Granny loves treats! Granny also finds out things like are any of the pets afraid of storms? Or, where are the special hiding places? What words do they best respond to? Will they come to a meow? The more Granny knows, the more comfortable she can make her special visits. We provide images and videos to you while we are pet sitting in the home.
Your pet receives individualized care, and maintains their personal routine with each visit. No two pets are exactly alike, so we offer a wide variety of services to precisely fit your pet's needs. Together we will tailor your own pet care plan. The Pet Granny is trained in how to administer medication, including insulin shots and hydration for cats with kidney problems. Should the time come for additional care, the Pet Granny is there to provide pet hospice care.
The standard away visits are available within five different time slots. The Pet Granny will come to your home up to four times per day depending on the needs of your pet babies.
When developing your customized schedule, select the time slot that fits your pet baby's needs. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee and commit to a specific time within a time block without special arrangements being made (additional fees may be applied for a request of a specified time within the time block).

Standard In-Home Visits
The most important element of The Pet Granny visit in your home is to give LOVE and UNDIVIDED ATTENTION to your pet babies. Granny tends to their needs for fresh food and water, makes sure that potty breaks are taken, and litter boxes are cleaned. One on one attention, with some playtime, is always some of Granny's favorite part of the visit. Each regular visit includes a security check that makes sure nothing on the property has been disturbed. Granny also brings in the mail, takes all fliers off the door, brings in any packages, and surveys the exterior of the property for problems. IThe Standard Away Visit lasts between 20 and 30 minutes with no additional fees.
If you have a recurring schedule where you need to check on your pet(s), then you can become a member of our NOONERS CLUB. Members receive EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNTS on standard fees.
Five midday visits a week; designed to fit your baby’s needs: love, mental stimulation, and exercise!! 1-2 dogs $60.00 a week.
If a full overnight visit does not seem necessary to you, yet, you are concerned that the evening routine for your pet baby(ies) remain(s) somewhat constant, then the "Sweet Dreams/Rise and Shine" visit is just the answer.
