Exotic Pet Care
People always ask what types of pets we watch. In case you are curious, we watch mostly dogs and cats, but we also provide pet sitting services for many more animals! The truth is, we love when we get unique furry, feathered, and scaled friends to spend time with.
Other Pets We Provide Care For
Backyard pets such as chickens, goats, alpacas
Small animals: ferrets, rabbits, mice, rats, hamsters, chinchillas, hedgehogs and all the littles
Reptiles: snakes, iguanas, chameleons, bearded dragons, and other scaly friends
Birds: large parrots down to their their smaller counterparts
Horses and ponies
Other friends: hermit crabs, fish, turtles, and more!
Choosing Your Sitter
If you have an exotic pet and are needing a pet sitter, please reach out to us to discuss your situation. While we do watch all animals, every household requires different care. While any sitter can watch a hermit crab, a house with 8 snakes will need a little more care in pairing a sitter.
When we speak to you we will determine:
The normal routine for your exotic pets
How much direct contact they will have with your sitter
If any of your exotic pets have health concerns
Based on these factors we determine the level of experience your sitter will need to have. Whenever possible we pair exotic pets with sitters who have prior experience with the same species. Some animals require more prior experience than others. For instance, horses and large parrots require a person with prior experience in case a health problem arises.
When watching exotic pets we take the entire household into consideration. If your exotic pets do not require much additional care then we will not charge any extra. For animals that may require specific expertise, such as parrots and horses, we do charge a bit extra. We take great lengths to have sitters on staff that have such experience, and they are hard to find!
