Overnight Pet Care For Your Dog Or Cat

Thinking about trying overnight pet care services? Here’s an example of one our Muncie pet care clients: Mike adopted a new dog from the Muncie Animal Shelter. Hugo had severe separation anxiety which wasn’t displayed until he had been in his new home for a couple weeks. Once Hugo started chewing up drywall and the furniture, Mike knew he had to do something so he called us.

After doing a sample run of our overnight pet care services for a few nights a week while he worked at the hospital, Hugo started to make improvement. The pet sitter started off having him sleep in the bedroom with her, in his crate. Then gradually she scooted the crate farther away from the bedroom, making sure he knew she was still close by. Eventually the crate was moved completely from the room for the entire night. With positive reinforcement, patience and consistency, Hugo learned that the crate wasn’t such a bad thing and that being alone wasn’t that scary.

Reasons For Overnight Pet Care

There are many reasons why a pet parent might choose our overnight services, including safety and comfort. Your pets will be safe and comfortable sleeping on the couch, bed or other comfy spot and your home will be occupied during the evening and during the day if you book daily visits with us.

We can help care for your beloved pet by staying overnight and provide that personal attention that he/she requires.

You can rest easy knowing that your pet is being loved while you’re away from home.

sit-stay-play In-home pet sitting & more.LLC provides overnight pet care in Muncie, Anderson, Yorktown, Daleville, Upland, Hartford City, Pendleton and all of east central Indiana. Your pet sitter will come to your home around 10 p.m. and will leave around 6 a.m. the following day. Price starts at $56 per night. Additional hours can be added starting at $20 per hour.

Your pet sitter will require access to your refrigerator and microwave and will bring their own sleeping materials unless you have an extra bed they can sleep on.

As a courtesy, your pet sitter can call you, text or e-mail to keep you updated about your pet and if you’d like, we can send a picture.
