Marty's Pet Sitting Service
Total Tender Love and Care Provided!

Whether you are going on vacation, a business trip or just spending long hours at work, or selling your home and need to get your pet out for a while, my service is for you!

Each service I offer ensures that your pets have the complete attention and one-on-one care and supervision at all times. 

I'll spend the night so your pets can stay at home and stick to their routine, schedule and familiar surroundings. They will not be exposed to the unpredictable behaviors and/or illnesses of other pets. Animals are happiest when they can relax in their own home (like we humans!). They will get fed, walked and/or run and get lots of love and attention. 

I can also make daily visits to your home...purrrrfect for your feline and/or canine friend. I'll feed, clean litter box, scoop poop, brush, walk/run and spend fun playtime with your pal. 

I will transport your pet to/from the groomer, trainer, vet, airport, or any other location. 

Unlike adult dogs, puppies should not be left for long periods of time. Let me give your puppy some love and playtime, as well as a potty break.

For those of you with older pets or pets needing some "extra care", I'm not afraid to adminster pills, shots, and salves. Whatever their needs are, I can assist.

Don't feel like washing your dog? Let me do it!

I also take care of other animals such as rabbits, turtles, snakes, iguanas, pigs, and chickens - I'm open - I just love animals (and they love me)!
