Boarding your pets while you are away can result in stress, confinement, injury or illness. Our sitters are educated, competent, reliable, and most of all, love animals. We will not simply come to your house, let your dog out, and then leave. We follow your preferences and will actually spend time with your pets once we have taken care of the necessities. Unlike many other companies, we care for all types of pets, not just dogs and cats. We are ready and willing to administer any medications and to care for pets with special needs. Our sitters are insured and bonded, and we have a veterinarian just a phone call away in the rare case that problems arise.
In order to receive certification through the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters, the pet sitter must complete a detailed course and a 500+ question exam. The course takes 1-2 months to complete, on average. It covers topics relevant to pet care, health, first aid, nutrition and behavior for a variety of animals.
All new clients must contact us either by email, email@example.com, or by phone, 239-666-4557, to set up a free, 30 minute consultation. The purpose of this consultation is to get you set up as a new client and for you and your pets to establish a bond with us before your visits commence. We will provide you with a service agreement, veterinary treatment authorization form, and a copy of our policies. We will also help you set up an account with our scheduling software. From then on, you can call us, email us, or request services directly through your online account.
All existing clients may click the link on our home page to log in to your account.
Our Standard visits are 20-30 minutes, Premium visits are 40-45 minutes, and Ultimate visits are 60 minutes long. The length of each visit varies by the number of pets and their needs. We also offer a 10 hour Overnight Stay in addition to daytime services.
We currently do not offer 24 hour service at your home or boarding in our home. Visits in your home are based on drop in times throughout the day. However, we do offer a 10 hour Overnight Stay on a first come first serve basis in addition to a midday visit.
We accept cash, checks payable to Gulfside Pet Sitters, LLC, and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover) via a PayPal link on your invoice.
New client consultations will continue to be held in your home to meet the pets and learn their routine; serious inquiries only. All parties must wear a mask over the nose and mouth during this meeting.
Visits are strictly one-on-one with the pets and sitter; please do not have any friends, family or other service providers in the home at the time of service.
Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and healthy!
