In-Home Pet Sitting

Whether you are out of town, working long days, or are unable to care for your pets due to an illness or disability, we are here to provide for your extended family members. Your pets can stay in the comfort of their own home, relieving them of the stress and anxiety of kenneling. We can customize a care plan specifically to your pets' needs and make multiple visits daily. The Pet Nanny understands that every situation and pet is different. That's why you'll recieve a free in-home consultation. From there, a care plan will be developed based on your specific needs. We care for pets of all kinds, including large, medium and small breeds of dogs and puppies, cats and kittens, birds, fish, rabbits and other small caged animals.

  • Dog Walking/Play Sessions - Does your dog need to burn off some excess energy while you are at work or recovering from an illness? The Pet Nanny is now offering 20-30 minute dog walks and/or play sessions.

  • Puppy Care - Puppies need special attention during that critical house training phase and need to be let out every 3-4 hours. We can help with house training by letting them out 1 or 2 times while you are working and use positive reinforcement to create a happy learning environment!

  • Medications for Your Pets - We have extensive experience at administering medications of all kinds, including daily pills or liquids, insulin injections, subcutaneous fluids for kidney problems, and medicated baths. This allows you the freedom to leave home without any worries.

  • Pet Transportation - Are you finding it difficult to get your pet to the groomer or the vet because of limited hours? The Pet Nanny can take them!

What people are saying about the
Pet Nanny of Northwest Ohio....

"My husband and I are avid travelers - sometimes it seems like we're away more than we're home. We used to worry constantly about our pets' happiness while we were gone. Not anymore - the Pet Nanny of Northwest Ohio has put all of our concerns to rest. And we know that our house is in good hands as well!"

"We used to drive an hour each way to board our dogs when we'd leave town - and then immediately bathe them when they returned from the kennel. Who wants to do that after coming home? The Pet Nanny of Northwest Ohio has saved us time and money. And our dogs and fish couldn't be happier."

"I don't have children - unless you count my dog. She's extremely spoiled and gets a home-cooked meal every other night. Traveling was often out of the question - until now. My dog is thrilled when The Pet Nanny of Northwest Ohio shows up at my door. She doesn't miss me a bit!"

"Sometimes my job requires me to be away for more than twelve hours at a time - and I always felt guilty for leaving my dog alone that long. Having the Pet Nanny of Northwest Ohio stop in for a walk and break makes my day go smoother - and I know my dog appreciates it too!"


So take off - without worry. Because with the Pet Nanny of Northwest Ohio, you can rest assured that your pets will receive loving care while you're not there. Book today!
