About C-U Pet Sitting Service

                     2022 FEE RATES FOR C-U PET SITTING SERVICE
NOTE: When comparing CUPSS’ rates against those of other pet sitters, remember to check the length of time spent with your pet(s). We all supply food and water, clean litter or scoop poop, bring in mail/newspapers, & water plants. Those chores take 20 minutes:  the average pet sitter’s visit duration.  I then take an extra 25-30 minutes to concentrate my full attention on your best friend(s)’ emotional needs. I “listen” to body language, we pick out favorite toys to play with, or enjoy a brushing or massage session. I supply whatever they need to gain an hour’s solace from missing you — to leave them content and calm. When you return from your trip, your pet(s) will be safe AND happy, having been pampered by someone who loves them.
A gasoline charge of 50 cents per mile from my home to yours will be added to your fee at the time of confirmation. ASK how rate for a combination household (i.e., 1 dog + 2 cats) is lower than just adding the two species’ fees together.

Most dogs need 3 visits per day; 1-2 visits are OK for travel days, lunchtime visits, work late, etc.

  PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME to only visit a dog twice a day. 11 hours is too long to be left alone.












I will be 67 years old in 2022.  It has become increasingly difficult for me to care for dogs. If you only need your dog to be let out mid-day, I can do that. Otherwise I can redirect you to other sitters.
