Wendy's Pet Care Rates:
Dog Boarding/Sitting: We offer overnight boarding for small and toy breeds when you go out of town or daycare when you are away at work. Your dog will be cared for in a loving home, treated as a beloved family member, walked four to five times a day and given lots of time to play. We pamper your pets, and when we board dogs they become members of our families. They sleep either in their own dog beds, or on our sofas or beds, if you allow it, unless you request they sleep in their crate. We also offer daily text or email updates with photos, which is a great way to see how much fun your dog is having! We also offer daycare for small and toy breeds. Daycare provides your dog with companionship and socialization, and dogs love the playtime and daily walks. Please also ask about our VIP package with grooming. We always schedule an introductory meeting with you and your dog prior to starting services, so please give us as much advance notice as possible. Once you have booked our services, we are delighted to have your dog arrive between 7:30am and 9pm. $75.00 a day - boarding; $50.00 a day - daycare.
Cat Sitting: We feed your cat, scoop or change the litter, groom your kitty, provide lots of love and attention during our visits, play time with your cat's toys to provide socialization and engagement, and administer medication, including insulin injections, if needed. Also, upon request, we will pick up your mail or water your plants. We are meticulous caregivers and will follow your prescribed routine as directed. We also send emaili or text updates with photos so you can see how happy your cat is during our visits. We offer daily or twice daily visits. $35.00 each 30-minute visit
Dog Walking: We take your dog on a 30-minute private walk around the neighborhood, during which time your dog will have our undivided attention. Your dog will also have time to potty and enjoy the outdoors. Walks are a fun time for your dog, and each walk is tailored to fit your pet's specific needs. At the end of the walk, we give your dog a treat, fresh water, and leave notes or send text check-ins to let you know how much fun your dog had on our outing. We also offer GPS tracking so you can track your dog's route. $25.00
