More than just pet care!

  • This is a great option for those who work long hours & are unable to walk their pup and give a potty break. Dogs need daily walks to promote good physical and mental health, ease boredom, and prevent destruction in your home. We do private dog walks only, to ensure the safety for your loved one(s). We will pick up your dog from your home or office, walk in your neighborhood and provide them with the amount of time reserved and refresh water. Please see duration and rate options on our service menu.

  • Dogs and cats love their homes! Our in-home pet sitting allows your dog or cat to stay in their own familiar environment, which beats a cold cage in a kennel hands down! No need to transport your pet anywhere, just walk out the door and we’ll take it from there. We pick up right where you left off, keeping your pets in their normal daily routine. Staying at home to sleep in their own bed, eat their own food and play with their own toys reduces your pet’s stress level and exposure to illness when compared to a kennel. We have 1/2 hour and hour visit options. Please see our service menu for pricing.

  • It is all about Routine! Our overnight service is a very popular one, so please book in advance to secure your spot. We arrive between 6-7pm and stay until 8-9 the following morning. This service includes a 1/2 hr walk in the evening, and a 1/2hr walk in the morning.

  • Just like humans, the majority of a dog’s immune system resides in his gut. The gut is the largest immune organ in the body and contains approximately 70% of all immune cells. So keeping your dog’s digestive system running optimally is essential to making sure that he stays healthy, active, and lives a full and healthy life.

    One way to potentially improve your dog’s digestive health is to offer him a daily probiotic supplement. There have been extensive studies on the benefits of probiotics in humans, however, veterinary research is just starting to really dive into how supplementing your pup with a variety of good bacteria can aid in keeping him healthy.

  • Springtime pet safety

    Warmer weather, blooming plants and buzzing insects can all spell trouble for the pets in your care, but depending on where you live, winter hazards may still apply! Stay alert to weather patterns, don’t allow pets outside unsupervised and wash melting salts from paws to prevent poisonous ingestion.

    If, however, the bright and beautiful days of spring are upon you, remember that doggie dangers and cat-astrophes can happen anywhere, so professional pet sitters must be prepared to prevent disasters and stabilize injuries before veterinary care is available.

  • Senior Dogs and detecting health problems early

    Senior check ups are extremely important

    Bella is 11 and Fitz will be 10 in June. They are big dogs, and they do age faster than the littles. It happens so fast, and we have to prepare for what is to come. Have you changed your dogs food to senior food? have you done a senior screening? Do they have arthritis? Do I give all of the supplements they need? Some things to think about as our loved ones age. Please make an appointment with your vet and come up with a solid plan to make your pups senior years comfortable ones. Both of my dogs have arthritis, so we give them MSM/Glucosamine as well as fish oil and several others. We have recently started pain medication as well.

    When I took my boy Fitz in, he weighed in at 109lbs. He is a big boy! I have noticed he does not go upstairs at night anymore, and he is getting up less and less to greet us at the door when we come home. These are signs that something is off with him. I had a full senior blood and urine panel done on him. The results came back, and most of the report was good. The liver enzymes were elevated quite a bit, so we decided to schedule an ultrasound and have his body X-rayed for arthritis while he was sedated. We are so very happy we decided to do this. It turns out he has a a gallbladder mucocele. What that is, is the distention of the gallbladder by an inappropriate accumulation of mucus. Decreased bile flow, decreased gallbladder motility, and altered absorption of water from the gallbladder lumen are predisposing factors to biliary sludge. It is the reason his liver levels were so high. We will now need to do an ultra sound every 3 months to make sure it is not enlarging too much. He may have to have his Gallbladder removed.

    We also found severe arthritis in three different parts of his back. We have come up with a good treatment plan to keep him comfortable. I will also be looking into acupuncture. My point is, we would never have known all of this was going on if we did not take him in. This is a part of being a responsible pet parent. Please read below on some more information on how we can care for our senior dogs and what to look for.

    After our vet appointment, we stopped to get our boy Fitz some ice cream.

See What Your Neighbors Are Saying about Us

“Thank You Emery and Amazing Staff at Auntie Em’s Pet Sitting for taking such good care of my special needs doggies!  One of my dogs is very old and the other is young and energetic and Auntie Em’s is great with both of them! They keep a daily log, send pictures every visit, and take extra care and attention. If something is off with one of them she always notices.  I really don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have such a competent pet sitter to check in on my doggies while I am at work.  Thank you for easing my mind!”     Kristina V.

“Emery is the best! Since the first time we called her, she came right over and introduced herself to our little frenchie Lulu. It was easy to see her rapor with animals is amazing! She’s a kind soul. She’s reliable and punctual and her rates are great. She’s texted us adorable pics of Lulu during the day and leaves funny notes to let us know what she did. We’ve called her several times in a pinch and she’s come by last minute for a feeding/walking. She’s terrific. We’re so happy we found her.”     Sandy S.
“Matt and Emery are simply fantastic. They are thoughtful and knowledgeable, caring and loving… all of which give us great peace of mind that our kitty is well taken care of while we aren’t around.

Every time they come by to see him they share a picture on Facebook, which we found to be absolutely wonderful and something we would look forward to, as these photos were not only reassuring that our kitty was doing well, but also beautiful portraits… some of the most adorable pics we have of him.

We are delighted we have found Auntie Em’s.”     Verena S.
