We offer a variety of services including pet sitting, pet boarding, dog walking, pet taxi, etc. We can also customize services to meet your needs as a pet owner. You can bring your pet to us , or we can visit your place of residence.

Why Hire a Professional Pet Sitter?

Pet sitters do much more than provide a pet with food and water while their guardian is away from home. A good sitter spends quality time with a client's pet, provides exercise, knows how to identify if the pet needs veterinary attention. At Grateful Companion Pet Care, sitters will also take in mail, and water plants.
