Pet Sitter and Dog Walking Services

Mid-Day Dog Walks

Worried your pet doesn’t get enough stimulation through the day? We’ll worry no more! We’re happy to visit your pet daily to offer a daily walk, a quick game of “Find It”, or the puuurrrfect combination of ear and butt scratches. We offer 25 or 45-minute visits exclusively for our mid day dog walking clients.

Vacation Pet Sitting

In addition to our Mid-Day Dog Walker service, Bull City Pet Sitting also offers vacation pet sitting. From early mornings to last outs, we can cover a full range of time frames. From cats, rats, chickens, cows and hamsters, if it has a bottom (or gills) we can sit it.

Speciality Services

Keeping your pet happy and healthy while you’re away isn’t limited to just walks. We also offer trail walking, extended stays, and leash manners training. We even offer a “Goldfish Service” to provide a quick home check while you’re away. Coming soon, puppy training!

This personalized service is focused on providing your pet with the human companionship and a little normalcy while you’re away.

Leash Manners

$3545 Min

Why do dogs pull?
To get to whatever is in front of them: great smells, other dogs, open spaces, squirrels, anything at all or nothing.
Pulling gets dogs to what they want faster. And it works. This is why it is best to teach dogs loose-leash walking as early as possible. Pulling is rewarding to the dog, so the more she does it, the harder it is for her to give it up. If you have an expert puller, however, don’t despair. Any dog can be taught loose-leash walking. And the human success rate is nearly as high.

Why train it?
To be able to enjoy your walks with your dog. It’s not fun or safe for your dog take you for drag down the road, and pulling while wearing a collar can actually damage your dog’s trachea. Isn’t training them to walk with a loose leash more pleasant for those on both ends of the leash?

You sure do talk pretty, but what do you ACTUALLY do?
We’re glad you asked! Our Leash Manners Service is a 45-minute session, in which we use only dog-friendly methods to achieve leash walking skills. We also work on door manners, such as calmness while putting on leashes and harnesses. This also includes a handoff session in which we teach you the principles of loose leash walking and all the training materials and cheerleading you need to help you along the way.

That sounds great! But what does it cost?
Oy! You are full of questions! Since we’re training a skill, this service is sold as a package. It includes 6 visits, at 45-minutes each, the last visit being a hand-off training session. The cost is $35 per session, at a total of $210. You can request this service by emailing us at info@bullcitypetsitting.com.

Goldfish Service

$1010 Min

Are you currently between pets but would still like someone to visit your home? BCPS, is proud to offer our Goldfish Service. While you’re gone, we’ll pop in for a quick visit to rotate the lights, rattle your blinds, water the plants, say “HEELLLOOO??” really loudly, perform our best impersonation of a large dog barking, and if you have one, actually feed your fish. Basically, it’s a security check for your home… and fish. Fish security is serious business.

Prices start at $10 for 10 mins and are only available by special request.

*$2 each additional imaginary pet
