Dog Walking & Potty Breaks


A tired dog is a good dog!  Exercise is very important for dogs of all sizes and ages.  MJ The Critter Sitter  provides dog walks ranging from 20 to 60 minutes.  Our dog walking services can be provided weekly or on an as needed basis. We will come to your home and provide one-on-one time with your dog.  We can go for a leashed walk, yard play, potty time, feeding, or any combination.

You want your puppy to be sociable, affectionate and you also want to help them with potty training.  MJ The Critter Sitter offers 1-3  visits a day to help with potty training and puppy socialization.

 Clients and their pets love our overnight service. Overnights start with an afternoon visit which can include a walk and your sitter than returns in the evening to spend the night with your pet.  You can also add a dinner visit for an additional charge.  We will customize your visits to suit your pet's needs and provide the routine they are familiar with. Our goal is to provide a routine as close to their own as possible.
