Pet & House Sitting

Pet Sitting in your home is vital to the health and well being of your pet. Staying in an unknown and often chaotic environment, even for a short amount of time is stressful.

With CabinCare, not will they remain safe within the environment that they already know (their home), but they will be able to keep their normal routine, all while receiving lots of love, attention, playtime and exercise.

“Animal people,” blessed that we are able to enjoy doing something we really love.

If you need someone you can trust to simply watch your home while you are away for a few days, you would like to add a midday potty break, have a little outdoor exercise, or even need a “Pet Taxi” to take your pet to the vet or dog groomer… we would be honored to meet with you to become acquainted with your pet FREE OF CHARGE so they feel comfortable when we come for our first visit.

Dogs especially thrive routine and like humans are creatures of habit. With in-home sitting you can rest assured that you doe will remain in his or her routine the entire time you are away. While he or she will miss you, the familiarity of remaining in his home should help reduce any anxiety he or she may experience.


The emotional health of your pet directly relates to their physical health and there is significantly less stress to a pet (especially a dog) when it remains in its environment. The desire for attention, boredom, and loneliness is not unique to us humans. We all crave snuggle time.
