  • 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.

    What To Do With Your Dog When Kids Go Back To School.

     

    Can you believe that in less than one week it’s back to school time for the kids?

    Back-to-school inevitably signals changes in our routines and everyone is most likely away from home for much longer periods of time. These changes can be especially hard on our family pet which can ultimately lead to depression or behavior problems.

  • Pet Safety for Independence Day!

    July 4th is commonly known as the most stressful day of the year for pets.

    Keep safety top of mind for pet owners by sharing this graphic. In addition, see the news release below for helpful information on reuniting lost animals with their owners, thanks to microchips. An impactful, bite-size fact: lost dogs that are microchipped have a 238 percent better chance of being reunited with their owner over dogs that are not microchipped. Microchipped cats have a 2,000 percent better chance!

    Each year Yavapai Humane Society experiences an influx of lost animals in the days following the 4th of July. The animal shelter urges pet owners to practice firework safety and get them microchipped.

    Pets can show unpredictable behavior when frightened by fireworks. The natural instinct for a scared animal is to run. This results in many pets becoming lost over Independence Day festivities. Should the worst happen and a pet escapes, having proper identification makes it much easier to reunite the lost animal with its owner. 

    A microchip is a radio-frequency identification implant about the size of a grain of rice that provides permanent ID for a pet. When a handheld microchip scanner is passed over the pet, it transmits the microchip’s ID number by which a shelter, veterinarian, or animal control officer can locate the owner’s contact information. It is vital for pet owner’s to keep their contact information up to date with the microchip company.

    While all pets should wear collar tags, only a microchip provides permanent ID that cannot fall off, be removed, or become impossible to read. The Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association published a study showing that the return-to-owner rate for microchipped dogs is increased by 238 percent over dogs that are not microchipped. For cats, the chances are even better. They have a 2,000 percent increased-chance of being returned to their owners over cats that are not microchipped.

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.
