This option is currently being offered on a trial basis to clients within a 50+/- mile radius of Whidbey Island. (This includes Seattle, Snohomish, Bellingham etc).
Because Dr. Maier is the sole caregiver, this service is dependent upon availability and rates are considerably higher than bringing your pet to Whidbey Island (see Services & Rates page).
The base rate is $225./night for in-house 24/7 pet care in your own home for one dog or one to two cats. Services at the base rate can include household care such as watering plants, picking up the mail and other daily needs within reason. Overnight caregiver accommodations must include a bed, bathroom and access to kitchen facilities. For additional dogs, add on $25/ dog with a limit of three total dogs. If you have more than two cats or a mix of dogs and cats, please contact for a quote.
A fenced yard is a must, unless you own a small well-mannered dog in need of leash walking. Leash walking services are not offered for dogs that pull or require special handling techniques in public areas.
A Meet and Greet is required prior to commencement of any pet-sitting services to ensure compatibility of pet and caregiver. The rate for a single Meet and Greet is $150. Payment is required at the start of the meeting and is not refundable should the job not be taken on after the Meet and Greet takes place.
