Pets thrive on routine and the familiar. However, more often than not, today’s lifestyle and the demands of work, family and social obligations make that impossible. With Kritter Kare pet sitting and dog walking services, diet and exercise routines are not interrupted and excessive travel trauma can be avoided, and there is no new exposure to illness from communal day care or boarding environments. Pets are less stressed at home!

Our pet sitting services are extremely customizable. This further reduces the stress level for both your pet and you. Offering sits that can be modified to meet your pets needs helps the pet acclimate to the realization that you are out of the home, but they are not without top-quality care. Of course, some special handmade treats always helps too!

You can trust the professional pet sitters at Kritter Kare.
