We cover the area of Northumberland County in the Northern Neck including Ophelia 22530, Burgess 22432, Lower Heathsville 22473, Edwardsville 22456, Wicomico Church 22579 and Reedville 22539. The coverage area is a 10 mile radius of Ophelia. If you are slightly outside of this area, we will consider your request, however, there will be additional mileage fees.
How many times a day we come to your home depends upon you and your pet.
Most dogs require a minimum of two visits per day.
Cats usually require a minimum of one visit per day.
Other pets will be up to the discretion of the pet owner.
Most all dogs really need to be seen at least twice a day for vacation sitting. Some dogs only need 1 visit a day if they have access to the outside and are used to being left alone for a good part of the day. We recommend three visits for most dogs, especially if they are used to human interaction. They will get bored and possibly depressed or even become destructive to the house or yard if they are alone all day. Although three visits is the most requested, in some cases, two visits would be sufficient but some dog owners request as many as four visits. It all depends on your unique situation and the comfort level of you and your dogs.
Most cats do well with one visit a day, depending on their feeding schedule and how much attention makes them comfortable.
We recommend that every pet be seen at least once every day. We will Not take a contract on a dog without at least a minimum of one visit per day (even with a doggie door) and cats, no less than every other day.
If you are still undecided regarding the number of visits you would need, here is an approximation of our standard visit times but are negotiable to fit your pets needs.
Two Visits a Day Request - We visit somewhere between 6 and 8 A.M. and the same time in the evening to keep the visits no longer than 12 hours (example - if we come 7 A.M., we would also come at 7 P.M.).
Three Visits a Day Request - We visit somewhere between 6 and 8 A.M., again between 12 and 2 P.M. and the last visit of the day between 7 and 9 P.M.
Four Visits a Day Request - The first visit is between 5 and 7 A.M., second visit is between 11 A.M. and 1 P.M., third visit between 4 and 6 P.M. and the fourth visit between 9 and 11 P.M.
Please Note: We do NOT spend the night.
We will NEVER again build a website with Go Daddy and we will discourage anyone else to do so because of their 'policies'! This website will disappear 2/2022 UNLESS Go Daddy gives us a full refund for website hosting already paid for. Whichever time that happens, we will still be available if needed and accessible by phone, email and text.
You may have noticed that we are NOT happy with Go Daddy. We had a 5 page website that were all fully loaded with vital info that took months to build by us alone in 2006 and added to over the years, not only about us but also all aspects for taking care of your pets and home BUT Go Daddy changed it's format and as on 1/1/2021, thanks to the incompetence of Go Daddy employees, our website disappeared, taking ALL of our valuable info with it. We were told by 2 different Go Daddy employees that all of our info would simply be moved over to the new system with no problem. Needless to say, we are a 'bit' upset!!!! There is no way that we could ever rebuild our website to the glory it was before nor will we spend that much time trying since we do NOT trust it to be there long if we did so this is what it is. We will never give Go Daddy another penny but we were paid up until 2/2022 and, although Go Daddy employees were the cause of the demise of our informative website, Go Daddy will Not refund our money because of their 'policy'. which takes your money but does NOT stand behind it's product. We were told, point blank, that they only promise to provide us with a venue for our website, not it's contents and from their Anti-Customer Attitude, Go Daddy is a one way street, it doesn't matter if the error was their fault, they will NOT refund your money so Beware....do NOT trust them like we did.
