Doggie Diva Pet Sitter

FACTS

Q. What is included in the visit?
The visit includes everything your pets need for a safe and engaging time while you are out of town. For dogs it includes walking, playtime, ear scratches, tummy rubs, fresh water, feeding and brushing if needed. For cats, visits include litter maintenance, feeding, fresh water,  playtime and cuddles. Also, basic house maintenance is included to keep you house looking lived in. (Rotating blinds & lights, watering plants, bringing in the mail, etc.) If you have a pet that isn’t a feline or a canine, no worries. Just let us know! We’ve looked after turtles, birds, rats, rabbits and fish

Q. How are my keys handled?
In order to make it easier for you and your pet sitter, we can keep your key in a secure place, for future pet sitting engagements.  Or we will return the key to you in person.

Q. I actually need someone to visit my pooch mid-day while I’m at work. Do you offer that?
Totally. Check out our Dog Walking services.

Q. Do you care for your client’s pets in your home?
We do not offer pet sitting services in our home. We offer care in your home environment to minimize the effects of separation anxiety. Using a pet sitter in your own home places less mental and emotional stress on your pet when you leave town. Your pets will stay in their home environment with all of it’s smells and familiarity. We can also make your home looked "lived in" for added security by opening and closing curtains, bringing in mail/newspapers, and turning on and off lights

Q. How many times a day will you visit?
That’s totally up to you! We require at least 2 visits per day for dogs (per full day when you are out of town), but we recommend three. (Your dog will recommend it too!) We require once a day visitation for cats, but they’ll never argue with two visits a day. We’re completely flexible to meet your needs.

Q. When do you visit Pets?
We’re here to mind your pet when you need us - 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Normal visiting hours are between 8AM
and 9PM.  We’re totally flexible to meet you needs.

Q. What areas do you service? South Nashville, La Vergne, Smyrna & Murfreesboro

Q. How do you keep my home and possessions secure?
Your security is one of our top priorities. We WILL NEVER wear any type of promotional or advertising clothing into your home. (T-Shirts, sweatshirts, or bags with our logo/contact information on them.) We will never arrive at your house in a vehicle with promotional signs or banners on it. Advertising pet sitting via clothing or cars while making pet care visits simply sends a clear sign to would-be-intruders, “This person is not home.” It’s fantastic advertising for the company, but less security to you. And you’re our focus. (You and your pets that is!) Also, we are bonded and background checked so you can feel at ease with us.

Q. Will I always have the same sitter, or will there be someone new coming in my house each time I book?
We know how daunting it is to place the life of your best friend in someone else’s hands when you aren’t there. Here we work hard so that you can build a relationship with your sitter. It’s part of our Philosophy. We will set you up with a primary sitter (who will do MOST of your sitting/walking) and a back-up sitter in case your sitter isn’t available, sick or injured.

(NOTE: If you want to be assured that the same sitter will always be caring for your Pet, it’s best to book services as soon as your travel plans are set.)
