THE FOLLOWING IS A LIST OF WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED 
DURING VARIOUS TYPES OF ESTELLA'S PET SITTING SERVICES:  
* Daily Dog Walking - $20 per 30 min. visit - We come to your house, check and clean up any pet related accidents. We take them outside for a potty break and exercise. We will fill their water bowl with fresh water and give them food. We will also give them a treat if you request. We then play with them, giving lots of personal attention. Using our Daily Dog Walking service gives you peace of mind that your furry friend gets the exercise and attention he/she needs. Scheduled dog walking service on a regular basis helps to break up the monotony of the day for your dog. He/She doesn't have to wait the whole day by himself for you to get home. A mid-day dog walk lets him look forward to play time, daily exercise, and a potty break. Having a pet can sometimes be a challenge with your busy schedule and you may not be able to provide all the care he requires to be a happy and healthy companion. With our services you will come home to a more content pet. You have the freedom to shop or run errands without worrying about rushing home to let your pet out!
* Puppy Care - $20 per 30 min. visit - We come to your house, check and clean up any pet related accidents. We will take them outside for exercise and a potty break. During the visit we will use the same training command words and techniques you use. Each day we will do a short 1 on 1 training session to reinforce the training you are currently working on with your puppy. We will reward his good behavior with praise and treats or a special toy. We give fresh water and food as requested and then give them lots of playtime and personal attention. Puppies need to be let out more often than an adult dog. If left alone too long they may relieve themselves in your home or their crate which makes house breaking much more difficult. They are also more prone to suffer from separation anxiety. This can encourage bad attention getting behavior like excessive barking/whining, jumping on people, and "marking their territory" inside your house. It is very difficult to break these habits once learned.

* Vacation / Out of Town Service - $20 per 30 min. visit - This service is for any type of pet, including dogs, cats, birds, fish, small pets, and exotics. We come to your house, feed, water, and exercise your pet(s). We check and clean up any accidents your pet(s) may have had. We bring in the mail and newspaper, water plants, and adjust house lighting to give it a "lived in" look. If your pets are on medication we will administer those at the times needed. By letting your pet stay at home while you are gone, you have a happier, healthier pet. Your pets avoid the stress of kennels with the constant noise of other animals, cramped cages, possibly a fearful car ride, and often times communicable diseases. Your pet will have personal attention while staying in his or her own safe environment. You also save time and money. You don't have to drive to or from the kennel. With one pet the price is comparable to a kennel stay.  With multiple pets you actually save money and have a happier pet that doesn't have to be separated from his furry siblings.

DOGS - We recommend a minimum of 2 visits a day. This depends on when you normally take the dog(s) out.

CATS - We recommend a minimum of 1 visit a day. Includes daily litter box cleaning.

* Slumber Party - $50/Day Per Pet - A Slumber Party at Estella's Pet Sitting residence allows your furry companion(s) to receive personal attention all day. They will be in a happy and safe environment and will be treated as special guests in our home and be given lots of love and attention. If your pets are on medication we will administer those at the times needed. We request that you provide your pet(s) food to assure that their diet is not disturbed during their stay. Be assured that your pet(s) will never be left outside.
* Pet Taxi - $20 and up - We offer round trip and one-way pet taxi service to the groomer, vet, doggy day care etc... We can either drop off your pet, or stay with them. If you would like us to wait on-site for your pet during appointments, we will gladly do so at our standard rate of $28/hour, pro-rated to the nearest quarter-hour increment. You must make arrangements with the destination personnel and let them know your pet sitter is dropping your pet off/picking them up. When we are dropping off or picking up your pet and it takes longer than 10 minutes to take or release custody of them, there will be an extra charge at our standard rate. To avoid extra charges please confirm with your vet/groomer that your pet, medication, paperwork and/or supplies will be ready when we arrive.
