Visiting In-Home Pet Sitting and Dog Walking

Serving Madison, Monona, McFarland, and Cottage Grove, Wisconsin

Services & Fees    Policies

Experienced and fully insured, Annie The Pet Nanny offers an array of services to help keep your pets happy and healthy in their own home while you are away.

In-home pet sitting is a wonderful alternative to a commercial boarding facility. Your family pets can remain in the safety and comfort of their own home, eliminating costly boarding fees, vaccinations, drop-off and pick-up deadlines, possible contagious pet illnesses or bad habits, confusion, and/or feelings of abandonment.

Man's best friend can also be his best protection: The FBI and ADT recommend that "you consider having someone care for your dogs in your home while you are away instead of boarding them." Dogs are the best burglar deterrents. Barking alone draws unwanted notice and stops intruders.

Please contact me to arrange a "meet and greet" which gives us the opportunity to discuss your needs to ensure a satisfactory individualized service plan. This initial consultation typically lasts about one hour and is free of charge.

I have had a lifelong love for animals, and pets have always been members of my household. After teaching kindergarten for twenty years, I chose a new career that addressed a need for visiting in-home pet sitting and dog walking. This is a care philosophy that provides pets and their owners a more stress-free life while they are separated.

I am committed to giving my clients the highest degree of personal attention to meet each pet and family's specific needs. Whether your needs are short-term or long-term, during emergencies or last-minute plans, Annie The Pet Nanny will guarantee dependable, loving care of your family pet(s).
