Can you board my pet with you instead of at my home?

Unfortunately, that is not a Service that Garden State Pet Sitting currently offers. For such Services, we recommend finding a Pet Boarding Facility that will let you visit on-site prior to Booking, to ensure the best environment for your pets.

Can you provide other services in addition to those you have listed?

If you are interested in any Services that are not listed on the Website, please reach out with any questions.

Can you transport my pet to an appointment?

Yes!- within a certain distance of your home and with advance request. We can discuss further details during the Phone Consultation.

Do you have references I can contact?

Absolutely. Please contact me and I’ll provide a list of references for you to reach out to. You can also read what my clients are saying about us.

Does the pet sitter stay at my home all day?

For overnight stays, the pet sitter will stay at your home for the majority of the day, only leaving the home for a maximum amount of hours that the client is comfortable with. The Pet Sitter does stay overnight.

How do I book your services?

You can see the complete process on our Getting Started page.

How far in advance do I need to book?

Bookings are on a first come, first served basis, as long as we have had our Phone and In-Person Consultations. Bookings do fill up quickly, so we advise at least 3 month’s notice, but we will try to accommodate you with shorter notice, if possible. We recommend reaching out ASAP if you are interested in Booking with Garden State Pet Sitting.

How much does pet sitting cost?

We don’t like surprises either – Please see our services page for more information. For additional pricing information feel free to contact me using the form available at the bottom of each page.
