Can you really put a price on the LOVE you have for your pets?
Ask us about our gift certificates
Effective April 1st, 2022: Last Year, with the fuel prices at an all time high we were forced to charge a $2 per visit fuel charge. This benefits our professional pet sitters individually not the company. As we all know, fuel prices fluctuate from time to time based on market conditions. However, fuel is not the only cost that has risen dramatically. Prices are insane right now and for a business like ours it affects us greatly on a daily basis.
Effective immediately, Home on the Range Pet Sitting LLC will continue to impose a $2 per visit fuel surcharge into the year 2023 so that we do not have to raise prices at this time.
HOW IT WORKS AND WHAT YOU NEED TO DO!!
STEP 1: CONTACT US
Our goal is to answer the calls, texts and emails that come in immediately. If we cannot be reached immediately, leave a message and we will return your call/text ASAP and/or return your email ASAP. At this time we will learn, all about your pet and their needs and guide you in finding the right services for you and your pet. We will also get your address and contact numbers, as well as some basic information about your pet.
STEP 2: MEET AND GREET
Before a pet sitting visit can take place, we will have a meet and greet. This is a time for pets, pet sitter, and owner to get acquainted and a time for documenting your pet’s personal preferences as to feeding, walking, playing, likes and dislikes.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be only one complimentary visit. If additional pre-visits are requested, the normal pet sitting fee will be applied.
STEP 3: LET US TAKE CARE OF THE REST!
While you’re away at work or on vacation, this is our chance to shine! We will update you with text messages and emailed service reports each visit to let you know how your pets are doing and how much they are enjoying being pampered! You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your babies are in responsible, reliable hands.
We provide professional, loving care to your pet when you can’t be there. Our experienced pet sitters are insured, bonded and National Association of Pet Sitters accredited to guarantee that your pet receives the best care.
Unlike larger corporations like Wag or Rover; we do not subcontract. Kelley is the sole operator of the entire company.

IMPORTANT: 3rd Party Visitors During our Services:
We always ask at the pre-interview and now will also be asking at the meet and greet if anyone else will be at your house or property during our visits, even if there will be cars there. If we get there and someone is there, we will not enter the home and will call the police in the event of an unknown entity on the premises. Additionally, if a car is there on dailies that we don't know,we won't go in. We don't like to be in a home with someone there that is not the owner. It isn't safe, people are unpredictable. It is extremely uncomfortable to share a house with a stranger. It also allows various miscommunication between us and 3rd parties and ultimately, we will NOT be held liable for any damage to pets or property. At that time, we will get in touch with the client. Safety is my number one priority for my sitters and for your pets. Alot of us pet sitters do those drop in checks, or sometimes dog walks late at night or early in the morning and so we want to make sure that they are safe doing those and that we keep the pets safe as well. We require safe clean private accommodations. Home on the Range Pet Sitting LLC politely declines to provide pet sitting services if you have family or guests staying in your home while you are gone. Only Home on the Range Pet Sitting LLC can care for your animals in your absence. We do not share or alternate visits with family members/friends/neighbors/roommates while you are away from start to finish – NO EXCEPTIONS. This is to assure consistency in both the scheduling and optimum care of your pets while you are away. We all want our pets to have all the love and attention they deserve, but please be advised that if there are other persons entering and leaving your home, Home on the Range Pet Sitting LLC will not be held liable for any damages or problems that may arise as a result. In addition, our insurance does not cover the act of failure or failure to act of third parties, including but not limited to neighbors, friends, relatives or other service providers that enter your home for any purpose while we are caring for your pets. Please inform us at the time of the meet and greet of anyone who may have access to your home while you are away. This includes cleaning services, repair persons, friends, family and neighbors. Home on the Range Pet Sitting does not accept liability for other persons who will be in your home during pet care and health services. If you have a roommate, it is my policy, that we need his/her information so I can get him/her checked out for safety reasons. Nothing weird about being careful and cautious. I would never want to suggest he/she will do anything, but we don't know them. There’s a lot of what ifs and my primary concern is for the safety of my sitters and the safety of my clients’ pets.

NOTE: How Complex is Your Horse’s Care?
When trying to establish what to pay, think about the following:
Does the Sitter have to travel some distance? This is especially a consideration if your property is not conveniently located within easy distance of a major centre.
How many horses are being cared for and are they all well trained with impeccable manners?
Is your feeding routine complicated? Or do you have a dozen supplements that need adding? What about medications?
* Do you have a stallion or mares in season? What about foals. Don’t forget hormonal horses are more difficult!!
Are your horses rugged, double or triple rugged???
Are your horses stabled? If yes, the stables will need cleaning daily.
Do you expect the Sitter to poop the paddocks?? Horses can drop up to 18 piles a day. That’s a lot of back breaking work.
What about weather conditions?? Will someone have to travel through blizzards or blazing heat to tend to your horses??
Also, don’t forget the routine you whiz through in 30 minutes will take someone else longer! All those shortcuts you’ve established over time are not automatic to someone new.
When it comes to paying someone to look after your precious horse, I would always err on the side of generous. If the person you employ is capable and caring towards your horse, you are going to want them to come back.
