Hounds@Home is private pet sitting & house sitting in Victoria, BC & beyond.
But not your average pet care! Give your pets a staycation vacation of their own while you are away. Hounds@Home is an in-your-home 24hr pet care service - your pet gets to stay comfy in his or her every day surroundings.
Dogs and I have a blast together and I have no shortage of great adventures to take them on, no matter what stage of life they are in. We visit forests, mountains, lakes, streams, oceans.. you name it! I'm always up to something dogs will love.
Outings with other dogs may be arranged too for K9 socialization, if that is something your dog enjoys. Doggie Beach Parties are a thing that we do! And they can be made private or social.
I love taking photos so you will receive beautiful photography updates to your inbox daily that keep you connected to your pet while you are away. You seriously won't be the only one with vacation pix! In case you haven't visited the Your Inbox page yet - click to see what yours will look like.
This is a personal one-on-one service, in addition to the above, you get to tell me about what your pet is used to in a day/what their needs are (training you are working on? brushing? their personal routine, etc) and I accommodate!
Before I come to stay we can also arrange for outings that way your dog will know exactly who I am, creating only excitement for when the time comes for your trip away.
Along with a staycation tailored for your pet's desires, you also have the added bonuses of security for your home while you are away, any plants taken care of, mail collected & more.
