PEt Sitting Services

Boarding & Pet Sitting

Going away and can’t bring your four-legged friends? We can watch them while you’re away (without ruining all your training!).

Going to be out of town? 

We can watch your pets for you!

Choosing someone to watch your pets when you are out of town can be extremely stressful — you want someone who understands how important they are to you, and will treat them like their own. 

But you also want someone who will maintain your house rules and won’t ruin all the hard work you’ve put into training. 

That’s why when you choose Whiskers & Wags you’re getting the best of both worlds! We offer several options, including home visits, in-home boarding (note: this has a very limited availability), and can even provide medical boarding if your pet needs daily medications. 

Whether you have us house sit, so your dog, cat or other pets can stay in an environment that’s familiar to them to minimize stress, or drop your pup off for group playtime (if appropriate), you get a dedicated, compassionate caretaker who thinks about your pets the same way you do. And we’re well equipped, even if you need medical boarding!

Our primary in-home animal care coordinator, Ayka has over 8 years experience pet sitting and a background in nursing. So she’s experienced when it comes to administering medications or even catching symptoms of an illness, even when you are away from home.

“When Donia was recommended to us for dogsitting, we were still a bit nervous. Our female was adaptable but our male was older and sensitive and it was our first time being apart from him. After talking to Donia, I immediately felt better. Knowing our slight apprehension, Donia sent pictures and updates which made the process so much easier on us. My dogs were happy and relaxed when we picked them up. Could not ask for better care! I’ve since recommended her to friends who were just as impressed as we were. Thank you again!”
