Affordable Pet Sitting Rates and Services For Cost Conscious Pet Owners On A Budget
Leg Stretch Potty Break
This 15-20 minute visit covers one pet with an additional $2 per extra pet. Your dog is taken out to potty, provided with fresh water, treats if requested, and given love and attention. If meds, feeding or a walk are needed, please schedule a 30-minute Royal Standard visit. Leg Stretch Potty Break can only be used once per day, during the midday (11:00 AM to 3:00 PM) a minimum of four days per week. We do not retrieve mail, newspapers or packages, water herbs/plants, nor take care of recycling or trash bins during this visit. This is an already discounted visit for those pet owners who are cost conscious and on a budget, but require their pet to be let out or taken out on a leash to bring necessary relief and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine several days per week due to long work hours or a busy social calendar. Pet Butler is here to help. We’re at your “Bark & Call!” As with any other service we provide, we will clean-up any pet accident/mess in your home and notify you of this. This is a shorter service in length, however, and we must stay on schedule. We exercise restraint in using it, but an “excessive pet mess” clean-up fee of $5 may be applied if the clean-up of your pet’s mess exceeds the timed scheduled visit.
This is a full-service, 30-minute visit. Add $5 to make it 60-minutes if extra or special attention is needed for your pet.
Prices are as follows:
Three 30-minute visits per day (for dogs) are recommended, service is for a minimum of seven days. Rate is $33 per day.
Vacation Care takes place at your Pet Butler’s home. There is a two to three pet limit depending on pet’s size and needs and they must be from same pet family. This is a home environment (free range, no cages), not a kennel. Minimum stay is seven days. Rates are $15 per day for pets under 25 pounds, $20 per day for pets 25 pounds or more.

The pets must be from the same family. $18 per day for pets under 25 pounds, $23 per day for pets 25 pounds or more. This boarding service is ideal for weekends or extended weekends away, short business trips, home showings, major home repairs, etc.
NOTE: For Bed & Biscuit and StayRover services, pet owner must supply pet food, medications and special treats as well as leash and collar with ID/valid tags, special bedding, toys and crates, if needed.
Pet Butler does not charge for general topicals. For pills/oral medication (not administered through food), we charge $1 per pet, per visit, per pill. This applies as long as your pet allows us to medicate. For pets needing critical time meds, but are particularly resistant and require a lengthy treatment, there is a $5 fee. For subcutaneous injections, we charge $5 per pet.
In the event of an emergency (accident, illness, injury), Pet Butler will rush your pet to your veterinarian’s office or Pet Butler’s vet. You will be notified immediately and kept informed as we stay with your pet. If after hours, we will rush your pet to the emergency vet clinic. There is a $75 charge applied by Pet Butler due to a vet emergency. The client/owner agrees to pay the cost of vet services at the time of the visit to the vet.
Pet Butler offers affordable pet sitting rates. We keep our costs low and pass the savings on to you, the pet owner and client. At this time, we accept cash and checks only.
