We'll get together in your home to become familiar with your pets and discuss all the details.
Animal Au Pair believes pets are much more comfortable and secure in their own familiar surroundings. That is why we come to your home and care for your pet(s) so they never have to be taken to an impersonal kennel. We also keep your home in order by bringing in your mail and newspaper, watering your plants, cleaning and refreshing pet food and water bowls, brushing out your pet's coat, walking your dogs, or cleaning cat litter, and switching lights on and off to fool potential burglars.
$18 per visit for one or two pets. This 30-45 minute visit is based on the needs of the pet(s).
Add $2 per visit for each additional pet.
If you work long hours and worry about your pet having to wait for you to get home, have an active breed dog who needs a diversion during the day, or have a dog who can't "hold it" all day, Animal Au Pair offers mid-day potty/exercise breaks. We will take your dog for a walk, or play ball/frisbee in the yard. This 20-30 minute visit is perfect for busy working "parents". Pricing is for an ongoing commitment of 3 or more walks per week. All others will be full price as listed above in " Pet Sitting".
$14 for 1 or 2 dogs
$16 for 3 or 4 dogs
$18 for 5 or 6 dogs
We offer some grooming services, such as bathing, nail trimming, ear flushing, or tooth brushing*. Grooming is only available in combination with a pet sitting or exercising visit.

Do you have to take a vacation day to wait for the cable company, furniture delivery, plumber/electrician, or other repairs? If you need the AC fixed, but have an important meeting at the office, just call Animal Au Pair! We can wait at your home for the vendor to arrive and complete the task. This service is based on availability so please call ahead.

Once you become our customer, we will keep your key so that we will have it ready each time you need us. If you would like us to return your key after you come home, there is a $15 fee to deliver it to you.
In addition, if you should ever lock yourself out, we can bring our copy of your key to let you back in. This service is also $15.
