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.

Overnight Pet Sitter Services

Instead of boarding, consider overnight pet sitting visits. Staying in their familiar environment, following their customary routine and diet, avoiding exposure to illness from other animals and receiving loving individual attention will keep your pets happy and healthy in your absence.

Overnight FAQ

I'm interested in overnight stays. What is included?

Overnight stays are great for puppies, late night barkers, crated dogs, older dogs that need extra late or extra early potty breaks or any pets that need more care at night. We will spend at least 11 hours in your home. You can be sure that we will provide walks, snacks, plenty of love to your pet as well as any other special needs your pet may require. We will happily sleep with and where your pet will be most comfortable.

What if there is an emergency in my home or my pet is ill or while I am away?

We retain emergency contact information with us at all times. We’ll always contact you first for minor incidents or concerns. If there is an emergency with your home, we will call you, your emergency contact and the appropriate authorities and/or a preferred repair service. In the case of serious emergency with your pets, we’ll first contact your vet and transport them if necessary. You will then be contacted about the situation. Your signature on the contract allows us to seek care in the event that you cannot be reached in an emergency. A fee of $25.00 for emergency veterinary trips covers transportation to the veterinarian and back to your home. We will always stay with your pet during any examinations and wait for testing if needed.

What should I do to prepare for you overnight stay?

We do require a clean place to sleep and your home be in such a condition our sitters feel safe and secure. Aside from that, just ensure your pet has everything they need. Also, we’d love access to your WiFi 🙂

Goldfish Service

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.

In honor of Dignan and Dora.
