Peace Of Mind 

We are a professional business registered with the state of MN, insured and bonded.  All of our sitters are background checked through Acutraq, vetted and have previous animal experience such as vet techs, shelter and rescue work. Our sitters are insured, bonded, and are eligible for health insurance after 6 months,  We work as a team and provide back up for each other to insure every visit is taken care of even if your regular sitter is unavailable for any reason.    Most of our sitters have been with us for years.  We strive to have the best team and believe the quality of our services is based on the quality of our sitters.

Client Portal

With our easy to use app. and  online software you can book your own visits, pay online, update your pet and client information.

You will be able to communicate directly with your sitter, receive real time pet journals sent directly to your email after every visit.  Each pet journal includes a summary of the visit, pictures of your pet, and a GPS map and GPS monitored arrival and departure times. You never have to worry about a missed visit since our online scheduling will send out text alerts if a sitter has not arrived at your scheduled visit at the designated time.

Kaitlin-Little Canada

"We used MJ The Critter Sitter over NYE and were SO impressed with their quick communication, the EASE of the online portal, and of course our sitter Kat, who was SO great with our Sr. Dog! The online journals of the check-in's contained photos, a GPS tag of when the sitter arrived and a list of what she did. It COMPLETLEY put our mind at ease and was such a superb service for super competitive prices. You have a forever customer in us!!!!"
