For Our All-Inclusive Service
House Calls Pet Sitting Central Contra Costa County
House Calls Pet Sitting provides services for pets while their people are away. A pet sitter will come to the pet’s home for a visit once, twice or even three times a day. We start with an Initial Booking Consultation to meet with you and discuss your pet’s requirements and routines, get to know your pet, and together develop a schedule that meets your needs. At this visit we will complete the necessary paperwork, answer questions and transfer keys.
This meeting should be scheduled at least 48 hours prior to our first service.
Our average visit price is $22 to $25 for a regular visit and $70 for an overnight service.
Here’s a preview of the types of visits we offer:
Extended Visit: (minimum 40-45 minutes)
This choice is best for long walks, multiple pet homes, and pets with special diets or special needs. Good for horses and hobby farms and extensive lawn watering.
Regular Visit: (minimum 25-30 minutes) Our most popular choice. Good for many multiple pet homes, supervised feedings, walks and play. Most dogs will require two to three regular visits per day, while cats are usually happy with one visit.
Value Visit: (minimum 15-20 minutes) A short visit that can be used as a quick turnout or potty break, litter box cleaning, easy keeper care or even a third feeding. This shortened visit is only offered in addition to an extended or regular visit on the same day.
Mid-Day Potty Break: (10 minutes) This discounted service is designed for day shift workers who have pets that need a quick potty break in the middle of the day. These visits are only done on weekdays and only under the circumstances described. Dog walks and any other additional services and discounts are not included.
Drop In: (3 minutes or less) A very short drop in to transfer keys (pick up or drop off), check iron/stove, turn off sprinkler system, close windows, etc…
Overnight/ House sitting: The pet sitter stays in the home with the pets for 12 hours overnight. Any additional visits (extended, regular or value) during the day can be added for additional cost.
