In Your Home
We care for: Dogs, Cats, and small animals.
All animals MUST be non-aggressive or have never shown any aggression towards humans in the past! Can administer medication to tolerant pets only.
Naperville Pet Sitting is not a boarding/kennel facility. We make multiple visits to your home a day. No overnight care provided at this time. New client's must have an "in home" consultation at least 3 days before we can start caring for your pet(s). Payment is due in full on or before the date service begins.
Entering your home: Please provide sitter with a key or keypad code. Consider leaving your key on file if you will be using services often. Key pick up/drop off will have a fee of $10 each time beyond the initial consultation.
Cancellation Policy: You may cancel service up to 48 hours before scheduled care is to begin, after this, a $25.00 penalty will be charged. No refunds will be given once service has already started for cancelling remainder of visits.
Holiday Fees: Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, New Years Day, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day. $28 per visit on these days for 25 minute visits and $25 per visit for Quick Visits.
Cat Care: Effective January 2020, we will no longer do every other day visits. You must schedule at least 1 visit a day for your cat, exception day you depart/return.
We will not job share with another pet sitting company you hire, your neighbor, family, or friends. When job sharing takes place it is difficult to know what care was done with your pets already. It also becomes a liability and insurance will not cover any incidents or accidents.
