What is A Professional Pet Sitter?

A professional pet sitter provides for your pets needs when you can’t be there. The needs may be as simple as a noon day walk while you are at work, or as comprehensive as total care for your pets and your home while you are out of town. Because the pet sitter works in your home, your animals are able to remain in their environment with as little disruption to their routine. The sitter will feed, exercise, play with and clean up after your pets, and can also administer medications if needed. Lake Minnetonka Pet Sitters are educated and experienced in caring for a variety of pets; we are also bonded and insured.

Why Should I Use A Pet Sitter?

Your pets benefit from remaining in their normal environment with a routine similar to what they are used to. They do not need to travel or stay in an unfamiliar place. For the owner we provide peace of mind knowing that your pets and home are well cared for without placing undue burdens on family, neighbors and friends.

Are You Licensed?

The pet sitting industry is self-regulated, so there is no way of being licensed like a contractor or cosmetologist would be. Lake Minnetonka Pet Sitters is insured, bonded and also a member of Professional Pet Sitters of Minnesota, National Association of Professional Pet Sitters and Pet Sitters International.
