In-Home Dog Sitting Services

dog sitter serving foodAll dogs go through stress when their pack leaves them for an extended period of time, and the stress is doubled when they are removed from their home and their pack.  As dog sitters we strive to create a bond and understanding with your dog by becoming part of their dog pack family, making them comfortable and secure while you are away.

We begin with with a free in-home consultation to meet you and your pets. This visit lets us all get acquainted and enables us to find out what we can do to make the experience enjoyable for your pet.  We obtain your pet’s history as well as vet info and any special needs.  If necessary, we will visit a second time before you leave to go over final details and give pets a second opportunity to get to know us.

Daily Visits (for dogs that can be left alone overnight)

Depending on your dogs needs, we will come to your home 2-4 times a day to spend time playing and exercising with your dog as well as feeding and any special care needs. Doggie will be happy to go home and crash for a few hours until we return again for more fun!

Extended Visits / Adventuring with your dog

We’ll add lots of extra TLC for extended time outside or playing with other dogs that are compatible with yours if that is appropriate.  This helps stimulate your dog and improve his/her overall behavior while you’re away and is a great option for crated dogs, those with high energy or just need more loving human companionship.

Overnight Service (for dogs that can’t sleep alone)

Our overnight service includes morning and afternoon walk/feeding and a sleep over from 8pm to 7am. Please note we have limited availability and priority is reserved for our regular clients.

More Pets?  No extra charge for feeding fish or birds.

For new clients, please fill out our Pet Sitting Check List online.

We serve the neighboring towns of South Windsor, Ellington, Manchester and Vernon.


My husband and I recently went on vacation for 3 weeks in the Caribbean. We were unsure of what to do with our “child/dog” Liberty, a rescue. We contacted Happy Dogs @ Home. Enough said! For three weeks, Jan and her sister Joanne, came by twice a day to feed, walk, play, etc., with Liberty. They took in our mail, alternated leaving lights on in our home and even took Liberty on daily outings. We came home to a very happy dog who now had a new stuffed toy named “Duck”, a dog who had received a lot of love and attention, a dog who did not feel that she had been moved to a new home for 3 weeks. This experience was so stress free for all, that I have since used them on a day when we were both going to be gone for a full day and have put in our reservation for next year. We highly recommend Jan, Joanne and Happy Dogs at Home!”
