The Best Care for your Best Friend

Every visit is unique to your pet.  We learn the things they love and hate.  Their silly quirks and what makes them tick.  Every pet gets individualized attention and care.

  • Updates with every visit

  • Constant communication

  • Everything is included

  • Lived in look while you’re away

  • A team who understands pets

“Diane from Barkside takes very excellent and personal care of my two dogs when I need to go out of town. Very easy to book the visits for my dogs online. They are very accommodating and flexible. My dogs are very well cared for and I am sent messages every visit with cute photos of their walks. I highly recommend Barkside pet sitting and dog walking services to all my neighbors.”

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the most common questions we get from our clients. Don’t see your question answered here? Send us a message.

We always require one back up key.  In the event of a broken key or an emergency where your primary sitter is unexpectedly unavailable we will use the back up key we keep on file to get your pets the care they need.
We do not require payment upfront like some companies do, however we do require a credit card be left on file in our secure system.  This card will not be charged except in the event of non-payment after 2 weeks.  When you go to pay your invoice, you can pay with a different credit/debit card or leave a check or cash at the visit if you prefer.  Please keep in mind we do not accept post-dated checks.
Never!  In fact, we encourage it.  We are professionals and you’ll never see us doing anything more embarrassing than maybe using baby voices and dancing with your pets.  Cameras in areas where the pets are will allow you to check in while we’re not there too.  We are all about them!
We do accept last minute visit requests from current clients who have electronic access.  (No keys needed.)  These visits are always subject to availability and we suggest you book as soon as you know your schedule.  We are happy to cancel visits free of charge, and never want to find out a pet is going to have to hold it longer than they should.
