These days people have all sorts of animals as pets! From those we think of right away, like dogs and cats, to some more exotic options like rabbits, birds, lizards and snakes. Don’t let our name fool you, the highly educated staff at Gainesville Dogs had experience taking care of just about every kind of pet out there, and we’d love to be able to give your special friend, whether they have fur, feathers or scales, the love and care they deserve when you need pet sitter.
Many of our standard services can be applied to other kinds of pets, such as baths, nail trims and play time.
We will work with you to personalize a pet sitting bundle of services that will perfectly meet your pet’s needs while you’re away, no matter what kind of critter they are. From making sure your bearded dragon’s heat lamp is on to letting your rabbit have some floor time to get all those binkies out, we love to see your pet happy and healthy and always provide the highest level of care and attention possible.
Our staff has a wide variety of education and experience that makes them uniquely qualified to take care of some of the most interesting and exotic pets. They have experience working with animals in zoos, vet clinics, pet shelters and more! Who better to take care of your bird, reptile, small mammal, fish or even invertebrate, than a trained zoo keeper who has worked in an AZA accredited zoo? No one else that we can think of, that’s for sure! Your Pet Concierge loves animals of all shapes and sizes and really understands how to take care of them and meet all of their unique needs.
We know it can be difficult to find someone to look after an exotic pet while you’re away.
It can be hard to know that they understand how to meet all of the different kinds of needs a reptile, amphibian or bird may have. You can rest assured that our staff not only know how to take care of your special friend, we have experience with everything from small mammals like rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and mice, reptiles like snakes, turtles, geckos, and bearded dragons, birds – especially parrots, amphibians like frogs and toads, fish – both fresh and saltwater and even invertebrates like tarantulas. We are comfortable and experienced feeding, handling and cleaning up after any pet you may have.
Though some may see these kinds of animals as less suitable to have as pets, we know that they are just as important to you and as much a part of your family as any cat or dog and we agree that they deserve just as much care and love as any other pet!
When you are in need of a pet sitter for your less traditional pet we want to be your first choice – Gainesville Dogs has all of the experience and expertise needed to properly take care of any pet you may have.
It’s an age old dilemma of the pet owner: what to do with Fido when you need to go out of town. It happens to everyone eventually, whether for a work trip, a weekend away with friends or your big family summer vacation, you need to make sure you also have a plan for how your pets will continue to be cared for while you are away. Gainesville Dogs has a team of pet sitting experts who are ready to be your personal Pet Concierge and give your dog all of the love, attention and care that they are used to while you are away!
Of course we always take care of the basics at every visit.
We’ll feed your dog as directed and make sure they have clean, fresh water available. But there is so much more we can do to help your pet be happy and comfortable in your absence. We can incorporate walks, indoor or outdoor playtime, even a trip to the dog park to relieve some stress. Your Pet Concierge will be able to keep up with any of your pets regular medical care such as giving medications or routine parasite prevention.
When you make an appointment for pet sitting with one of our highly educated and experienced staff members, they will work with you to build the perfect service package to make sure your dog is taken care of exactly how you want them to be. Our pet sitting bundles are completely customizable and any of our offered services can be added such as baths, nail trims and even training sessions! We can even offer in-home overnight stays if your animal requires them. Do you have more than one dog? No problem! We are able to offer discounts on your pet sitting bundle when you add multiple services or multiple pets.
We know that you have many options for how to take care of your dog while you’re away from home. Some pets do fine at a boarding kennel or at a friend or family member’s home, but these places can be sterile, loud and stressful for others. Pet sitting with Gainesville Dogs allows your furry friend to remain in their own home, where they are comfortable and better equipped to deal with the emotional stress of you not being there for a little while. Routine and a familiar setting can really help a dog during a time of change. We always want your pet to be as happy and healthy as possible and we love being able to help you keep them living their best life when you’re not home.
