Overnight Care

If your pet is used to you being home all the time or is anxious when left alone, overnight care is highly recommended when you leave town on a business trip or a vacation. As pet care professionals, we will customize our schedule to suit your pet's daily routine and can be there when you are usually at home. This continuation of routine results in less stress and more comfort for your pets.

When we stay over in your home, we also include care and security for your home. We provide a lived-in look, put out your trash and recycling on trash day, open and close blinds, rotate lights, water your plants and even garden or vegetable garden. We fill up your bird feeder and bird baths too. As if you were still home.

If you choose for Bed and Biscuit, your dog stays at an employee's house. If you like us to check on your house while you are gone, we can book extra visits.

Pricing

We offer three overnight care options:

A. Bed & Biscuit: 

$ 119 /adult dog/24 hrs

$ 140 /all dogs younger than 7 months/ 24 hrs

Puppies or young playful dogs do not like to stay by themselves at home when you leave on a trip. This service is for overnight boarding at one of our sitters' homes. We can also do pet taxi (transport your puppy from home to sitter's home and back) if needed. We only have LIMITED availability for boarding in one of our employees' private homes. Your dog's care and stay is insured by the company as are all our other services. Minimum rate is $99 for 24 hours or less, including overnight sleep time.

  • Only one dog for boarding possible.
    • Do you have more than one dog? Please check out our overnight stays below. No extra fees for additional pets and your home is being monitored while you are gone.
  • Our sitters take care of all meals, medications and provide playtime, walks/backyard play and companionship throughout the day.
  • Alone time for your pups is likely on weekdays when our employees work for KSR Pet Care (7AM-9AM and 11AM-3PM) but never the entire time block. When alone, your dog will be comfortable and safe in a space of his/her own, together with the other pets or crated (client provides crate).
  • Boarding is great for puppies who have had their first series of shots. They will enjoy companionship of other dogs and/or teenage kids.
  • Before start of service you will be able to visit the home of our employee and go over all details of your dog's vacation at KSR Boarding. With the exception of puppies under 6 months old, all dogs need to be neutered/spayed, up-to-date on all vaccinations including bordetella.
Is this also Daycare?

We do not offer daycare. If you would like your pet to stay at an employee's house for less than 24 hours, the federal/state laws and therefore our company rules are different. For less than 24 hour stays of your dog at a sitter's home, our employees get paid by the hour: $ 29 on a weekday and $32 on a weekend

B. Deluxe overnight stay: Your Pet stays at home, your house is monitored and secure. No additional fee for additional pets.

$ 140.00

incl. dinner, overnight, breakfast (8:30 PM-6:30 AM)

This service is great for adult and senior dogs who like to sleep in their own beds at home rather than go to a boarding facility. If you have more than one dog, cats or another small animal, no worries: we can take care of everybody at no additional cost. 

  • After a good night's sleep we are there for breakfast and leave about 6:30 AM. Later in the evening at 8:30 PM we will be back for a walk, dinner, companionship, sleepover until after breakfast.
  • Our pet sitter does get 1 hour break and can either choose to stay on the premises or leave. If you have more questions about this, please do not hesitate to ask our office. 
  • Usually we add one midday visit with walk but if you want to spoil your dog, we can do two making alone time even less.
  • If your dog eats needs to eat earlier than 8:30 PM, we can add a dinner visit as well but in that case our Ultimate overnight stay becomes more affordable since each visit is $24.
  • No extra charge for multiple pet households. Cat, dog, birds or other small animals... all included
  • Benefit: Your pet(s) can stay at home.
  • Your home is monitored and secure and we provide a lived in look. 
  • Other benefit: at no extra cost we also take care of mail, paper, trash/recycling on trash day, light rotation, indoor plant care.
