Services & Rates

Getting away for vacation, or just going away for the day?  Working long hours?  Don't have the time or energy to give your dog the exercise she needs?  Or maybe you have a younger or older pet that needs extra attention.  Sometimes you, a neighbor, or a family member are temporarily laid up.  Beach Buddies is ready to help.  We customize our services to you and your pets, and guarantee reliable, professional, loving care.


Free Consultation

We begin by coming to your home to meet you and your pet(s), discuss your needs and your pet's schedule, and see the location of food, treats, leash, litter box, etc.  We review our service agreement, which details information on your pet(s) and home.  Often it is a good idea to walk with owner and a dog to get a feel for thier style.  We then use the type and number of pets, as well as your specific situtation, to determines rates.  We can provide references and proof of licensure and insurance.  If you decide to use our services, we would get a key at this time.

Pet Sitting in Your Home - $18 to $25 per 30-minute visit
When you travel, your pet(s) can remain safe and secure at home, keeping their regular routine and avoiding exposure to potential disease or parasites.  In addition, you don't have to adhere to the schedule of a kennel or boarding facility.  Your pets are home when you leave and there when you return; no additonal travel is required for you or your pet.

A visit includes providing fresh food and water, a walk and/or litter box cleaning, and play or grooming time.  Most dogs require three visits per day, some only two. We recommend a daily visit for cats and other pets, but we allow you and the personality and needs of your pet(s) to help determine the amount of time required.  We can also administer medication and will provide a form that authorizes us to do so.

Another benefit of pet sitting is your home looks 'lived-in'.  We can bring in mail and newspapers, put out and take in garbage and recycling, open and close blinds or shades, turn on and off lights, and even water plants if time permits.  However pet care always comes first.

Dog Walking  -
$20 for 30 minutes, 45 minutes $30
We take your dog on a brisk, focused walk to burn energy and calories.  This can help alleviate problem behavior and weight gain, or help overweight dogs trim down.  We also provide basic training during these walks.  Discounts are available for frequent walkers, or regular customers who only require a 10-15 minute visit or "potty break".

Basic Training - $40 per hour and up
New puppy or dog that just can't walk on a leash?  Is your dog aggressive toward other people or animals?  We can help teach your dog to sit, stay, walk properly on leash, and come. We can also alleviate bad behaviors and help socialize dogs using positive reinforcement.  Owners should be actively involved for consistency and the best results.  

Overnight Pet Sitting  in Your Home - $100 per night and up
This service includes an evening walk at 8-9 PM, staying overnight, the morning walk and feeding, and departure by 9 AM.   Additional time can be negotiated.

Holidays - A $5.00 per visit surcharge will apply on major holidays and the surrounding weekend.

Cancellations & Deposits - Cancellation of a visit with less than 24 hours notice will result in a 50% charge, and cancellations with less than four hours notice will be charged in full.  A deposit of 50% is required for pet sitting reservations of one week or more, on holidays, and for first time customers. 
If we have to make additional trip to pick up or return a key, there will be a $5 charge.

Other services - We pride ourselves on being flexible. Let us know if there are addtional services you require, and we'll see how we can help.
