    Welcome to Watchdog, a pet sitting service that has provided in home, customized pet care since 1983. Your pets are part of your family, so a wonderful way to give everyone peace of mind when you are gone, is to know they are safe and happy in their own home. Plus, our pet sitters will keep an eye on your house! We pull in mail and newspapers, water plants, rotate lights and adjust curtains, in addition to the basic care of your animals and we can include a walk if you have dogs. All of this is included in one flat fee per visit. We offer one or two visits per day, and a third visit can be arranged depending upon availability. Watchdog has experience in taking care of horses, rabbits, ferrets, fish, birds, guinea pigs and turtles, as well as dogs and cats.

    I'm Shellie Baker, and I have been the owner of Watchdog since 1983. I started this business when it became apparent to me how stressful it was for my own pets to be left at a boarding facility, and felt that other pet owners had the same concern. My clients tell me how much happier their pets are staying in their own home in familiar surroundings.

    I have many years of experience in caring for other people's animals and have thoroughly enjoyed it! It has always been important to me that I treat other peoples pets like they were my own, and I have dedicated workers that feel the same way.Please contact me if this is important to you, as well!

    How we work:

     We generally need a one week notice to allow time to set up a free, no charge appointment, so that you can meet us, and we can meet you and your pet(s) in your home. More notice is recommended for holiday scheduling.

    At this time, we will go over pet and home care instructions to customize the service for your household. We cover things like: diet, medication, favorite toys, litter boxes if you have a cat, etc. We will then go through the service agreement and policies, and will obtain a key to your home.

    Watchdog prefers to use your own veterinary hospital in case of an emergency, as your vet is familiar with you pet’s history.

    Watchdog workers strive to treat your pets as if they were their own.
