Drop-In Visits or Dog Walking

In home visit to care for your animals. Drop-In visits could include a potty break for your pup, providing food and water, scooping litter boxes, and whatever else your animals need. (No fees for additional animals)


If a 30 minute visit is not sufficient to provide your pets care, additional time can be added as needed for $5 per 10 minutes.

Available from 7am to 10pm. If visits earlier than 7am or later than 10pm are required, overnights visits are available.

15 Minute // $14

30 Minute // $20

Weekly Regular Discount Rate: $19.50

For clients who book 2 or more 30 minute visits every week. Does not apply to vacations.

Overnight Pet Sitting

I stay at your home to care for your pet(s) overnight for 10 or 12 hours. 12 hour overnight availability is limited!

When caring for pets I also make sure to do what I can to keep your home running smoothly. I can get your mail, water plants, take out the trash, and more. I do light maintenance cleaning during my stays (sweeping or vacuuming as needed, etc.), and before I leave I wipe down surfaces and always offer to wash linens used. 

While I can't guarentee time that hadn't been paid for, with longer stays (5+ days) I often end up spending extra time with my overnight clients as it becomes a second "base of operations". If I have extra time between visits where it doesn't make much sense for me to run home, I'll spend that time with your animals free of charge.

Surcharges and Holidays


Travel Fee - *As of January 2020 I no longer travel more than 15 minutes from my "home base." These fees apply to clients whose location has been grandfathered in.*

 I unfortunately have to charge a fee to account for visits outside of a certain radius. This is calculated using google maps from the starting address 617 S. English Ave in Springfield, based on the fastest "average traffic" reading.

0-14 minutes = no travel fee

15-16 minutes = $1 per visit

17-18 minutes = $3 per visit

19-20 minutes = $5 per visit 

21-25 minutes = $7 per visit

25-30 minutes = $10 per visit

Same Day/Last Minute Fee - $5 per visit

Applies to requests for services with less than 24 hours notice.
