Our most popular service! All visits include feeding/watering, meds if necessary, a walk or other outdoor entertainment and a security check of your home. We make your home looks "lived in" while you are away - we adjust lights and window dressings, take in your mail and newspapers, take out your trash, water your lawn and plants, and any other small task you may need done while you are away. 30 min: $22| 60 min: $30
Cat visits are 30 minutes in length and include plenty of kitty playtime (if they are in the mood of course!), feeding and watering, meds if necessary, and litter box maintenance. We will even change out the litter if you are gone for a longer period of time. We also offer a longer 60-minute visit if your kitty (or kitties) need a little bit of extra pampering. 30 min: $20
Whether you have an extra active dog who needs daily exercise, a puppy that needs house training, a dog that is crated or lacks exercise because they are difficult to walk on a leash, or you just work late and your dog needs a break, we can help. We offer several different options for dog walking to meet your dog's unique individual needs. We also offer affordable package options. 30 min: $22| 45 min: $26 60 min: $30
We let your puppy out and reinforce house training. We also introduce leash walking and basic obedience. Your pup will graduate to daily dog walks and focused play. We also offer 65-minute training walks for adult dogs, focusing on training and exercise. We keep you involved every step of the way. Several training walks are recommended. Package options available. Contact us below for rates.
Overnight care in your home! Hours of personal attention focused on play, exercise, and affection that pets need while you are away. Pet sitters stay in your home from about 8 pm - 7 am the following morning. If you are going to be gone for the entire day, we recommend an additional mid-day visit in the afternoon. We make sure your pets are relaxed and happy while you are away. Slumber Pawties start at $69 for the full visit.
With advanced notice, we can handle your dog at special events such as parties, family photo shoots and weddings. We can walk and/or play with your dog when they are not directly involved and transport them back home. Does your dog love the great outdoors? Hikes and dog park trips are great for high energy dogs. Times range from 90 minutes to 2 hours. Contact us below for rates.
Holly Amarandei started her career in the pet industry as a self-employed mobile groomer over 18 years ago. After leaving for a brief time to pursue higher education, she founded her first pet sitting business, which she sold in 2009. A return to her first love was inevitable, however, and she founded Fuzz Buckets GR in November of 2016. Though it started as a part-time venture to see if the passion to work with animals was still there, it has grown into a full-time career!
