๐Ÿถ NO OVERNIGHT SITTING

๐Ÿ˜ธ NO BOARDING

๐Ÿ’‰ I AM FULLY VACCINATED (COVID-19)


Hello and welcome to my services~ I am an insured member of Pet Sitters Associates ~ #66145.  I also have a little over 60 Google reviews when you Google Cindy's Pet Sitting in Fair Oaks. 


What to expect:    I will go over your needs (mentioned on my contact page, for my submission form) and ask too that you first go over my procedures and policies, on this page, to determine if we are a good fit. This also includes requiring that you have and are able to text on a cell phone, in case of an emergency, and for pet updates. 

A meet and greet, at your home, will be the next step where we will go through your pet's routines, house and pet services needed and your schedule. I will also need to have a spare key made and given to me at the initial meet and greet, if you do not have a keyless entry or lockbox. 


Initial get-acquainted visit is FREE.    Please give me at least a few days notice with a meet & greet for better scheduling results, and also for you to get a spare key made, if necessary.  Meet and greets are AT YOUR HOME to get familiar with your home and especially get to know your pet(s). This also includes any specific dog walking techniques to avoid any later confusion. Any future, additional, meet & greets are $15+ (a visit cost) depending on the area,


Keys: Unless you have a keyless entry or a lockbox, I will need a spare key to your home.    Keys are kept safely locked up in my possession with no identifying links to you. This will be a key for my use for future pet sitting but will be returned, upon request.  There is a visit charge ($15+) to pick up your key again (at your home only), if you decide to use my services again.  There are no back and forth key exchanges, however, or keys hidden under mats or objects outside, per company policy, and for obvious liability reasons. 


Cancellation Policy:    I require at least a 24 hour cancellation notice or there will be a charge equivalent to the same day visit(s) cost missed, since you are reserving my time. This is for all services; drop in visits and dog walking. There also unfortunately are no refunds or credits once visits have begun, if you happen to come home early, unless there is an unavoidable emergency. 


Payment: Payment is always due BEFORE services begin.   Cash, Venmo (preferred) and personal checks are all accepted


Holiday Rates: Please add $5 per visit for the following holidays: New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day.


Service Areas: Fair Oaks and surrounding areas within 15 miles. . If the distance (calculated from 7997 California Ave, Fair Oaks) is further than 15 miles from the Fair Oaks village, I do recommend that you find a pet sitter who is closer.

Dog Walking

Iโ€™M SORRY BUT Iโ€™M NOT DOING ONGOING DOG WALKING AT THIS TIME.   But should resume this fall, when the weather is cooler! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


Dog walking is on leash at all times, no exceptions.


I will work with regular dog walking clients (by request) on basic training to heel, stay, etc, with correcting their behavior with a lot of praise and an occasional treat, when they do what is expected of them.  My goal with dog walking, however, is to let our friends enjoy themselves on walks. To get exercise but to stop to smell the roses, whenever they get the chance. It is their time too. โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒบ


Micro-chipping is highly advised in addition to wearing an ID tag, as well as being updated on all vaccines. Small dogs are best with a body harness, if possible, for their safety and comfort. And a sweater or light coat is recommended for chilly mornings with smaller dogs, and especially dogs who have short fur who are low to the ground.


I walk your dog(s) by themselves (within the same household) and with no other dogs. Dogs are never to be taken to the dog park and are not allowed to be around other unknown dogs, with how unpredictable they can be with each other. They also will not be walked near busy streets whatsoever. Waste is picked up and disposed of properly.


Walking is done preferably in the morning, depending on your needs but hot afternoons (over 75 degrees) will be spent in your backyard or indoors with a ball, unless there is a lot of shade on your sidewalk. Very rainy days, where it's pouring, will be rescheduled for a drier day or later time of the day, unless play can be done in your house with a toy.


Dog Walking Prices:

30-40 min walk ~ (within 5 miles of Fair Oaks village) ~ $25.00 ~ in your neighborhood.


30-40 min walks ~ (within 5 miles of Fair Oaks village) 3+ walks per wk ~ $20 per walk~ Discounted walking for more than 3 walks per week but if you choose 2 or less walks in one week, the cost is $25.00 per walk. There is no charge with advance notice (24 hours) if taking entire week off. In your neighborhood. 


I currently am only walking one large dog at a time or  2-3 small dogs at a time. Large dogs must be well behaved and not pull on leash.
