Pet Sitting

Professional pet sitting and pet care while you are away.

The ideal alternative to boarding a beloved pet is our personalised pet sitting service. If you are a pet owner who needs to leave home for a business trip, or you simply want to take that long overdue vacation, you will undoubtedly need to consider the care of your pet. Urban Paws is uniquely different from your ‘run of the mill’ kennels and catteries because we provide  love and care for your pet in the comfort of your own home. Being pet owners ourselves, we know these beloved members of your family thrive on routine and one-on-one attention. Our pet sitting service offers both! In addition to the personal attention we provide, our pet sitting also allows your dog the benefit of remaining consistent with his or her diet and exercise habits.

A bonus of having one of our qualified sitters care for your pet is our complimentary extras of mail collection, garbage disposal, even the watering of your plants. Be sure to ask us about the additional services we offer – all of which can be arranged prior to your departure. One of the greatest advantages of having us care for your pet at home is the ‘lived in’ look our presence provides, which can help you avoid being targeted for break-in while you are away.

Pet sitting for cats as well! Pet sitting for dogs includes a thirty minute dog walking service. Pet sitting Mojo the cat, a Urban Paws regular. Pet sitting for small pets include chickens, rabbits, lizards, birds and fish.
