Pet sitting is available Sun-Sat 24/7. The first time we meet your pet will be a free consultation. We feel that many pets are more comfortable staying at home when their owners go away. It is less stressful for some animals than staying in a kennel. They remain in their own comfortable surroundings and only have one person besides their owner to get used to. We hire pet sitters for our own pets. *CHECK BELOW FOR PICS!

AJ's has been my pet sitter for over a year. Allyson the owner is a true "life saver" to my dog and cat. She is timely, responsible, and my pets adore her. She comes daily, does over nights, and has filled in while on vacation. She has taken them to the vet during emergent situations when I could not be there. She is able to administer meds if needed, has insights to some of my behavior questions.There is nobody I trust more than her with them.I believe my pets would choose her over me too, she is more fun. I highly recommend her for your furry "loved ones".
AJ Pet Sitting is my go to pet sitter. I make frequent trips out of state; mostly planned in advance, but sometimes last minute. Allyson has always been able and willing to accommodate my needs for pet sitting. She is great with my rambunctious pups (2 Weimaraners and a lab mix) and I trust they are in good care with her and her team. I love that she send updates and photos while I’m away.
Highly recommended and grateful for her services.
