Pet and House Sitting services

It is also nice to know that someone you trust is at your home looking out for things when you aren't there. She's reliable, dependable, and great with animals!

Planning a vacation is already stressful enough. You have to:

So it's nice to know that you can take care of everything at home, from your house to your pets to your mail, in one quick call.

Our first vacation began as a two week trip and mid-trip we wanted to stay two weeks longer. After consulting with Tobey and learning she could extend her stay we enjoyed our vacation for those extra two weeks!

I always feel comfortable knowing Tobey is looking after my little kiddo (cat). I feel totally at ease when I leave on vacation.

ABOUT

Who is Tobey?

I am a pet-lover and a fan of living in new places. During the day I work behind the scenes at the local bank to make sure that your money is safe during online transactions. At night I ensure that your home and fur-babies are safe.

SERVICES

Depending on what you need, I offer a few different options. Contact me for a custom price based on your specific needs.

House-Sitting

I come by your house at least once a day to check mail and walk around to ensure everything is as you left it. Depending on your comfort level I can check inside or stay outside.

Letting a house look empty makes it a target for thieves. Signs of an empty house include mail piling up, lights never being on, newspapers piling up outside, and no traffic in the drive-way.

Light Timers

Before your trip I will come by and install 4 timers for lights in your house. This means that lights will come on and go off at scheduled times, giving the appearance that someone is in the house. Common placements include the kitchen, living room, and bedrooms.

If you need lamps to plug into the timers, I am happy to provide those as well.

In-House Sitting

If you want even more peace of mind (or have pets), then I can stay in your house. Not only will it appear occupied from the outside, it actually will be!

Tobey kept our pup happy, content and active in our absence and by occupying the house gave us true peace of mind that all is well so that we could relax and enjoy our vacations! We have been completely happy with Tobey's attention to our needs and we will definitely continue to use her services.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I pay?

Tobey currently accepts cash and local checks. Full payment is required ahead of time.

What if I don't like people touching my stuff?

Tobey doesn't ever have to come inside your house. With the house-sitting package she can simply visit and check outside to ensure that everything looks good.

Do I have to provide food if Tobey stays in my home?

While she certainly enjoys treats left behind for her, Tobey is happy to provide her own food. She's actually a rather picky eater and will probably bring her own anyway.

What do I have to do to prepare for Tobey watching my pets?

Make sure that you have enough food/water/treats for the duration of your trip. You also need to provide emergency contact information for your favorite vet, just in case. Before you leave on your trip Tobey will come by so that you can introduce your pets to her.

I have an unusual pet. Is this a concern?

Tobey has taken care of more than just dogs and cats. Turtles, Iguanas, and Hampsters have also thrived under her watch. Contact Tobey with any concerns that you might have.

What if my pet is nervous around new people?

Tobey will come and visit your pets before you leave on your trip so that she can meet them. If it ends up that they don't take to her for any reason, she will respectfully not agree to sit them but may be able to recommend someone else who could.

If there is an emergency of some sort, what happens?

Tobey will do her best to take care of anything that comes up. She will contact the proper emergency services as needed, and immediately contact you to keep you informed of the situation, providing you updates as events unfold. (Having said that, the worst that has happened under her watch so far has been that spilled Sprite on the carpet, and she was able to clean that up on her own.)

Will Tobey take care of yard work, go grocery shopping before we return, or do other chores around the house?

Arrangements for additional services can be made on a case-by-case basis.

My trip is 1 day/1 weekend/1 month long. Will Tobey still watch my house?

Yes! No trip is too short or too long for you to not have peace of mind. Tobey is still happy to help ensure that you can enjoy your vacation?

Why shouldn't I just take my pets to the kennel and have the neighbor watch my house?

That is certainly a valid option. Tobey just wants to provide the best possible option. Your pets are creatures of habit and drastic changes of pace (like a sudden move to a new place without you being around) can really stress them out. Getting to stay in their own home, even if you aren't there, will help them feel better while you are on your trip.

I live in ... Will Tobey still watch my house?

Yes. She will work out the details with you on a case-by-case basis.

I travel regularly for work, can Tobey regularly watch my place?

Of course! Tobey is happy to provide recurring services. (And if you have pets she gets to build a stronger connection with them with repeated visits.)

Mine don't warm up to just anyone, and they took to Tobey immediately! You won't be sorry if you choose Tobey to pet or house sit for you!

For the past two vacations my husband and I have used Tobey as our pet and pad sitter. We took a leap of faith and are so very happy that we did! Our first vacation began as a two week trip and mid-trip we wanted to stay two weeks longer. After consulting with Tobey and learning she could extend her stay we enjoyed our vacation for those extra two weeks!
With her taking care of our home we had no worries about an empty house look. She watered plants, brought in mail, kept things tidy and checked in with us regularly to keep us informed about mail that was delivered. We trusted her thoroughly and eventually even had her transfer funds from one of our accounts to another.
MOST importantly she took super care of our four-legged fur baby! He stays outside but needs daily interaction, fresh water and food. Tobey gifted him toys that we had for him, played with him and she even took pictures of our fur baby and send them to us!
Tobey kept our pup happy, content and active in our absence and by occupying the house gave us true peace of mind that all is well so that we could relax and enjoy our vacations! We have been completely happy with Tobey's attention to our needs and we will definitely continue to use her services.

I always feel comfortable knowing Tobey is looking after my little kiddo (cat). Tobey has a very sweet demeanor and is very responsible and loving towards her job. I feel totally at ease when I leave on vacation. She went the EXTRA mile and even sent me photos of my little one while I was away and that meant THE WORLD to me. She is so considerate. When I returned home, the place was exactly as I left it and just can't say enough wonderful things about Tobey, except she probably doesn't charge enough for all she does.
