pet sitting

We know how important it is to have your dog in a safe and comfortable setting while you are away on vacation or on business.

We realize that sending your dog to a daycare or boarding facility may not always be an option, so we have services to make your time away from your pooch as pleasant an experience as possible.

Overnight Pet Sitting
Our reliable and competent sitters will stay overnight with your dog where he/she is most comfortable—your home. Your dog will have everything he/she is familiar with while also enjoying up to 4 walks per day on their usual schedule, feedings, some much-needed socialization, and playtime. $65/day

Non-Overnight Pet Sitting
If an overnight stay is not necessary, we can come walk your pup and feed them as many times as you specify. Price varies based upon walk schedule. For UP TO 5, 15-minute walks per day OR 4, 25-minute walks per day cost is $65/day.

Hourly Pet Sitting
 If you only need care for a few hours we can book one of our sitters to come over and sit your pup. This includes a sitter’s attention for the entire duration of the reservation. $30/hour

Holiday Pet Sitting
Base rate doubles –$130/day. One month advanced cancellation notice required otherwise 50% forfeiture of petsit fees.

Additional Dogs
For any additional dogs present at a petsit, a flat $8/day is added to the charge.

Cat and Rabbit Sitting
These services are perfect for those cat and rabbit owners looking for care during trips! Instead of boarding your pet, our sitters will come to your home, feed and water your pet, clean out the litter box, and provide socialization and play opportunities depending on your pet’s desires. $15/day (Holiday cat visits – $30/day)

Fish Visits
If you’re going away for the weekend but your fish still need to be fed, DDI is here to help you out! We’ll stop by to feed your fish each day according to your tank’s needs.

pet taxi

Our custom pet taxi service provides transportation to and from vet appointments, groomers, doggy day care, trainers, and more.
