Pet Sitting & Dog Walking

Professional dog walking and pet sitting service. Our services are designed to give your pets the special attention they deserve. We are available 7 days a week to ensure your pet is well taken care of while you are at work or on vacation.

The Benefits of Pet Sitting – for your pets and your peace of mind. Your pets get to stay in the comfort or their own homes. A lot of people don’t want to send their pet to a kennel during a vacation, where animals can experience anxiety. Others are also uncomfortable leaving their home empty while they’re away.

Your pets will be cared for by experienced, caring pet sitters who will spend significant time with them. Our pet sitters can spend the night with your pets in your house, or make multiple visits throughout the day and night while you’re away.

The Benefits of Dog Walking – If you’re considering hiring a dog walker, and you live in San Diego, Paws & Relax is the dog walking service for you! 

You’ve heard that a tired dog is a happy dog but regular dog walks, exercise and playtime also make a healthy dog. A nutritious diet and proper exercise will ensure that your dog maintains a healthy weight and helps prevent heart disease and arthritis. Dogs also suffer from stress and depression just as humans. At Paws & Relax, we place a premium on fitness and endless love and affection, which helps to alleviate these symptoms.

$30 per half hour or $50 per hour (up to 2 pets, add $5 for each additional pet).

Overnight Visits

With our in-home overnight sitting your pet can maintain their routine in the safety and comfort of their own home while you’re away. Your sitter will come to your home in the early evening to feed, water, play and cuddle with your pet. The sitter will spend the night at your home and depart the next morning after approximately 12 hours of care.

Overnights in the Comfort of your Pet’s Own Home (Limited Availability)  Concerned about your pet’s safety and home security while you’re away? Let all your worries vanish.
