Snoozing In Their Own Bed Always Beats A Boarding Facility
Our pet sitting service is the perfect fit for dogs and cats who prefer to stay in their own home when their people are away. The benefit of in-home pet sitting is that your pets can stick to their normal routines and will be in the comfort of their own house, which will minimize stress and keep them happy!
Simply decide how many visits your pets need each day and how long each visit with your pet sitter will be. We’re happy to come as many times as you need us.
Our reliable and thoughtful staff will make sure your pets have a great stay-cation any time you are out of town. You will be confident your pets are cherished and adored every day by their pet sitter!

Our goal is to be available any time your pet needs care. To accomplish that, we work as a team, so you may not always have the same pet sitter. We do try to stick with a primary sitter for each client, but we have an amazing team who all provide fantastic care. Before another sitter provides care for you, we will always have them join your primary sitter for a visit with your pets so they can meet your pets with someone who is familiar with them. We keep detailed records about your pets so you always get the best care, regardless of which of our team members provides your pet's visit. You can also always update your pet's information in your client account whenever there are changes.
We require 2 copies of your keys at the time of your Meet and Greet. Please test both keys to ensure that they work properly to avoid any issues when we arrive for your pet's visit. We do not accept garage codes in lieu of keys. These systems often fail due to dead batteries, electricity issues, or other various mechanical issues. If you live in a gated community or if you have an in-home security system, you must provide key cards or appropriate access codes required for entrance.
After your visit is completed, we retain keys in our office for your future visits. We highly discourage requests for us to leave keys behind at the last visit. In cases where you are unexpectedly delayed getting home, you may require additional care for your pet. There is a Key Pick-Up/Drop-Off Fee if you need Charleston Dog Walker to pick up or deliver keys before or after a scheduled visit.
Why do we need 2 keys? This is to ensure that your pets will always be taken care of no matter what. Our backup key system means that if your primary pet sitter has an unexpected issue, your pets will always receive their scheduled care.
We'll email you your bill and then you can pay online through our secure system. We accept all major credit cards to make your life easy!
We try our best to always have availability, but sometimes we do fill up. It's always best to schedule your services with as much advance notice as possible to ensure we're available. If you need to schedule a service that will occur within less than 24 hours you can only do so by calling our office at 843-580-2212. If we have the availability to accommodate your request, there will be a Late Booking Fee added to your visit price.
Please notify us that you need to cancel services no later than 24 hours in advance of your visit. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will be charged full price.
Holiday visits must be canceled 15 days prior to the start date of your services for a full refund.
We dig out our rain boots and a jacket! Rain or shine, crazy heat or frosty cold, we’re going to be there for your pets. They still need to pee and see a happy face, so we’re still going to come. On days that are extremely hot, we will shorten the walk portion of the visit to ensure your pet stays safe and we’ll spend the extra time playing indoors. If conditions are unsafe for travel (extreme flooding or hurricanes) we will notify you as early as possible that your scheduled visits may be delayed or canceled so that you can make other arrangements.
