There’s A Reason People Trust Martha’s Dog & Cat Services.

Have an out of town trip coming up? No problem, you can rely on Martha Hand with Martha’s Dog & Cat Services, a bonded and insured company, to take care of your furry companions so you can relax. We will visit your pets at predetermined times with you. Our average visit is about 30 minutes. Martha bases the length of the visits on the number of tasks and number of pets you have. Martha’s will help your pet keep his or her daily routine and make sure that they are happy and feel cared for.

Each visit includes feeding (at meal times) and cleaning of food and water bowls, walking, scooping the litter box, administering medication (friendly pets only), cleaning of any pet messes, and of course playing with your pets. Martha also includes house sitting services such as picking up the newspaper and mail, alternating lights, opening and closing of blinds to ensure your home looks “lived in” while you are away.

Martha’s Pet Sitting

Play time & fun – No Charge

 

Martha’s Pet Sitting allows you to give yourself peace of mind. Knowing that when you are away, your four-legged loved-ones will get all the care, love, and attention they are accustomed to. Best of all, they get to stay in their familiar surroundings. Your pets will always be happiest when they get to stay in their own trusted environment.

All visits are personalized to each client to meet their needs. All visits include fresh food (at meal times), water, litter box cleaning and trips outside. Most importantly, quality time playing, petting, brushing and giving your pet the attention they enjoy. Martha also keeps an eye on your home by doing such things as bringing in mail and newspapers, taking out the trash, alternating lights, opening and closing blinds and watering plants, giving your home an occupied look. Medication added to food/water is included in all applicable visits.

For the safety and comfort of your pets, Martha’s service requires a minimum of 3 visits per day for dogs and a minimum of 1 visit per day for cats. Martha’s Pet Sitting will work specifically with you to tailor a visitation plan that fits with your guidelines.

Dog Walking

Busy Day At Work? Don’t Worry, Martha can handle it.

It happens to everybody. Sometimes you get stuck at work. Sometimes you just have too many things going on. When your daily schedule gets hectic, call Martha. Martha will make sure your dogs get that needed opportunity to stretch their legs and burn off a little energy. Martha’s Dog Walking Programs help give your canine companion a bright spot during the day and some needed stress relief from yours. Most owners know that dogs require physical and mental stimulation just like humans do. If they get proper exercise on a daily basis, it will help energize their body, mind, and spirit. Many dog behavioral problems are the result of isolation, boredom and insufficient exercise. Martha’s dog walking is a wonderful service for your dog when you can’t be around to exercise and play.

Cat Sitting From Martha

Keeping Your Kitty Purrrfectly Happy

Martha loves caring for cats. She knows that cats need personal attention, beyond just scooping litter and refreshing the water bowl. When you are away, Martha is there to make sure your cat feels loved and safe.

Cats are much more attention-needy than most people think, and providing the right levels of attention is vitally important for their well-being. They can quickly become bored and depressed if they feel ignored.

If attention is lacking, some cats can develop ‘negative attention syndrome’ where they misbehave just to get someone to notice them. If the only time anyone talks to their cat are when they scratch the sofa or stroll down the kitchen counter, then you can guess that they will perform these feats when the owner is near, but not acknowledging them! (In this respect cats and small children do have a lot in common!)

When you can’t be there, Martha takes the time to play with your cat. Martha knows your cat had no choice but to spend many long hours in a quiet house without any stimulation. By talking to them and playing with them, Martha makes sure your cat is happy and healthy.
