Pet Sitting

Care for pets in their own home while their owners are away for vacation, business travel, or just working long days at the office.
Dog Walking

Dog Walking

Is you dog at home while you are at work? Or maybe you work from home but are on a tight schedule. Daily dog walks are a great solution!

It’s about the bond. It’s about commitment. It’s about love. It’s about Apronstrings.

Have you ever heard the term it’s time to ‘cut the apronstrings’? It’s a bit old-fashioned, but it refers to children growing older and no longer being tied to the apron strings of their parents. Human children do grow up and become independent. They can for the most part, function on their own!

Here is where our name comes in. Pets are tied to the ‘apron strings’ of their care givers/owners/guardians…whichever term you use….for life…while children usually embark on a life of their own, pets do not! They are always tied to Apronstrings!

Pet ownership is a lifetime commitment and we are here to help facilitate that bond when you are not physically there to do so.
