Standard Dog Walking & Pet Sitting Rates:
20 minute potty break [ $20 ] (Includes text or email wrap up without photos)
20 minute potty break would be considered a “yard let out” or similar quick break for dogs, and does not include a full walk. Also great for cats who will prefer to stay safely hidden under the bed, or the back of the closet! :)
30 minute dog walk or vacation pet visit [ $25 ] (Includes text or email wrap up with photos)
30 minute dog walk or visit tailored to your dog's lifestyle & needs. Often works well for 1 or 2 cat households, and for cats that are independent, but still need some playtime, love & attention!
45 minute dog walk or vacation pet visit [ $30 ] (Includes text or email wrap up with photos)
45 minute dog walk or visit tailored to your dog's lifestyle & needs. Often works well for households with more than 2 dogs or cats, or for pets who need just a little extra love, attention, or special care!
60 minute dog walk or vacation pet visit [ $35 ] (Includes text or email wrap up with photos)
1 hr dog walk or visit, often works well for households with 3 or more dogs, or for energetic dogs who love to go exploring! Also great for 4 or more cats, or for pets who need lots of love, attention, or special care!
All dog walks are provided in your neighborhood, and are custom “one on one” visits with your dog(s) – i.e. no group walks with other client's dogs at the same time.
Vacation pet visits include feedings, litter box scooping, playtime, snuggles, and socialization. Also included are medication administering and light housekeeping duties as outlined below.
I do not provide "every other day" vacation pet visits. For the safety, health, and well being of your pet(s) - I would need to visit every day while you are away.
Overnight Visits [ $75 ] (Includes a detailed, daily email update with photos)
Karuna Pet Care will stay overnight with your pet in the safety and familiarity of your own home! Service is guaranteed for at least a 12 hour window from 7pm to 7am (or similar), but will often include extra time throughout the day if schedule permits. Overnight rate includes one morning and one evening walk for dogs, plus AM and PM feedings. Additional afternoon walks are subject to availability, and are charged separately per desired time length. Rest easy knowing your pet(s) are comfy at home, and that your house is being looked after while you are away!
