In-Home Care


 

We offer limited in-home overnight care to dogs in the Greater Milwaukee Area, providing peace of mind while you’re away.  During your scheduled overnight stay your dog’s caretaker will live in your home, because of this, it’s important to know that their dogs will accompany them during daytime visits and overnight stays.  After meeting with you and your pet, we will determine if the fit seems suitable and can schedule an introduction for the dogs to meet.  Our dogs have, without a doubt, met hundreds of dogs and are very appropriate with dogs, cats and other critters.  Click here to learn more about our canine companions.

 


 

Overnight Care Package – $65
This overnight stay in your home lasts 8 hours* from 10pm to 6am and includes two daytime visits; one between 10am – 12pm, and one between 4pm – 6pm.  You are more than welcome to add on extra 15 minute visits throughout the day ($10 per extra 15 minute visit) if needed.  If you are looking for overnight care we require at least 7 days notice and while we will do our best to accommodate you, our weekend and holiday availability is extremely limited so be sure to submit your request well in advance, especially for holidays.  One extra species is included in this care package.

» It goes without saying, but we thought we’d say it anyway…  all Overnight Care Packages include the administration of standard medications/supplements, bringing in the newspaper, mail and packages, watering your plants, providing fresh, clean drinking water, feeding breakfast, lunch and dinner when needed, cleaning up after your pet when they do their business, and a promise to do our best to clean up any accidents your pet may leave for us while you’re away.  You will also receive once daily text/email updates.

*8 hours is the minimum stay duration, meaning that often times we will arrive sooner and leave later – simply because we love your canine!

 

Critter Care Add On – $5+ in addition to your Canine Overnight Care Package

In addition to your dog(s) we’ll feed your bunny, ferret, chinchilla, hamster, turtle, bird and reptile. However we may be inclined to decline if you ask us to take your pet tarantula for a walk or hand feed it insects…

 

Plant Care Add On – $5+ in addition to your Canine Overnight Care Package

If your plants need extra special care while you’re away, this surcharge will apply.
