Standard In-Home Pet Sitting Service

Great for planned vacations, weekends away, business trips, & day trips. As opposed to boarding or kenneling, your pet(s) will be cared for in their normal home environment, alleviating travel trauma, eliminating exposure to illnesses, and reducing separation anxiety. Your pet(s) will have caring and responsible in- home companionship while you’re away.
This is also a wonderful option for cats. Cats are very sensitive to their surroundings, are creatures of habit, and need their surroundings to remain stable and safe. Kenneling can be traumatic for cats and can result in both behavioral and physical problems. Let FSPS care for your cat(s) at home and provide them with the attention and security they prefer and deserve.

$22 Per visit.
$4 Per additional pet beyond 2 per visit.

Leashed Mid-Day Dog Walking Service

Perfect if you want your dogs to get the exercise they need while you work long hours, attend scheduled meetings or classes, or simply have no time to take your dogs for a walk. Reclaim your lunch breaks! Let FSPS give your dogs a mid-day break. (Regular monthly scheduling and monthly billing available.)
This is also a great option if you have a puppy in training who needs an extra break (puppy relief) to burn off energy, work on leash training, and stay on schedule.

$22 Per walk.
$4 Per additional pet beyond 2 per walk.

Pet Taxi Service

Have no time to take your pets to or from the groomer or to an important vet visit? Need someone to transport your pets to or from various locations when you are busy, out of town, or working a long day? This is the perfect option for you.

$15 Per one-way trip.
$30 Per round trip.
$4 Per additional pet beyond 2 per trip.
$22 Per half hour if you require a Sitter to stay with your pet at
a location.

Leashed Park or Trail Outings

This fun and active service not only gives your dog(s) 1-hour of good exercise at one of Columbia’s great parks or trails, but it gives your dog(s) what they really want the most: that great ride in a vehicle with the windows down! Leashed outings are one of FSPS most popular services. Let your dog(s) thank you for treating them to a special outing on the trail or a walk in the park today.

$30 Per 1-hour outing.
$4 Per additional pet beyond 2 per outing.

In-Home Overnight Pet Sitting & House Sitting
