All of our pet sitters are very experienced in working with various pets. We all are great with dogs and cats, but we also have sitters who specialize in bird, rabbit and rodent care. We even offer plant care. Our team is very knowledgeable, and we all believe that the safety and comfort of your pets is our top priority. If you are at work or on vacation and you entrust your pets to Paradise Pet Care, rest assured that they will be well taken care of and loved. We truly love your pets!

The Paradise Pet Care team provides care for your pets in the safety and security of your own home. We go above and beyond to make sure your pets are well cared for with minimal changes to their routine and we reassure you that while you are away you do not need to worry about your pets. We will even provide you with a nanny cam during your vacation. Our team of professional pet sitters is experienced and reliable. We do thorough screening, interviewing, background checks and reference checks for all of our sitters. We are bonded, insured, trained in Red Cross pet first aid and CPR. We also offer online scheduling and automated billing for your convenience. We currently service La Jolla, UTC, Carmel Valley, Bird Rock, Pacific Beach, Clairemont, Bay Park, Mission Beach, Point Loma, and a few other areas in Northern and Central San Diego. Don't hesitate to contact us if you live in a different part of San Diego, we might be able to drive out your way.

Why us?

PeaCe of Mind

You can trust that responsible and loving caregivers are providing exactly the services you request. We use the latest technology to reassure you that our pet sitters give your pets the highest care they deserve. Our pet sitters use GPS check-in and check-out tracking, so you always have confidence that your pet is well taken care of. If you want to watch, talk to or even treat your pet yourself while you are on vacation we will be happy to rent you the pet-cam that allows you to dispense treats remotely.

 

Comfort for your pets

Pets are most comfortable in their own homes

We currently service La Jolla, UTC, Carmel Valley, Bird Rock, Pacific Beach, Clairemont, Mission Beach and Point Loma. For other areas in San Diego don't hesitate to ask, sometimes our sitters are willing to drive the distance for their favorite breed of a cat or a dog :)

Private Dog walking

Your pup will enjoy his/ her exercise in your neighborhood or your local park during a visit with a PPC caregiver. Some of our pet sitters enjoy running, so if you have a dog that would like extra exercise we’d love to help you keep him/her in shape ($5 extra fee for running applies).

The rates below include up to 2 dogs in your household. $5 charge will apply for additional dogs.

30 min - $24

45 min - $30

60 min - $36

Group dog walking

Some pups walk better in a pack and enjoy their walk much more. If your pup is a social butterfly and we have another pup nearby that enjoys walks with a canine friend, we are able to offer you a discounted rate of $22 for a 45 min walk and $28 for 60 min walk. We do not walk more than 4 dogs at a time. Group dog walking is not guaranteed, and is based on the availability of other dogs in your neighborhood.

vacation Pet sitting/ cat care

Your pets will enjoy the comfort of their own home while being cared for by the nicest animal lovers! Our caregivers will feed, give lots of love and clean up after your pets during their visits. We have a few cat whispers on the team, so you might be surprised when your shy cat ends up purring for one of our sitters. We also offer complimentary services like mail and newspaper retrieval, weekly trash/recycling bin take out and watering plants. If you’d like to rent a pet-cam, we offer Furbo for $10 per day.

Holiday rate

 $7 holiday surcharge per visit, $10 per overnight on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and Day, and 4th of July. 

Overnight care

Some pets prefer more attention and do not like sleeping alone.  For these occasions, we offer house-sitting in conjunction with pet sitting. Our overnight stay includes a potty break before bedtime, a morning feeding and a half an hour walk.  Your pets will receive dedicated attention to make sure they have a good night's rest so they miss you a little less. We stick to your routines and your preferences. If your pet likes to sleep in bed with you, more than likely he/she will be able to cuddle in bed with our caregivers. We know we cannot replace you to your pet, but we will do everything possible to make your absence for them less noticeable. Our overnight stays are 12 hour shifts, and we try to accommodate your pet's routine. Midday walk is offered at a discounted rate (see vacation pet sitting fees). 

weeknight - $69

weekend - friday/ saturday - $79

Special needs care

For no extra fee during the visit our professional staff will ensure your pet receives the extra care they need, including any medications that need to be administered or special feedings. If you need us to cook a meal for your pet, do not hesitate to ask during a meet-n-greet. Provide ingredients and instructions and we will please the pickiest of the eaters. At least 30  - 45 min visit will be required for special needs pets. 

Pet food, supply delivery, CONCIERGE and transportation services

Need dog food, treats or other pet supplies?  Just provide your caregiver with a list of what items we can deliver to your home so you don't have to make any extra trips to the pet store. Concierge services can cover just about anything you can think of – picking up your dry cleaning, taking your pet to their vet appointment or a groomer, filling your refrigerator before you come home from vacation or even mailing some packages at the post office. Your pets are our main concern, but anything we can do to help you while your pets are in our care is why we consider ourselves a true one-stop shop. Pricing is the same as during the extended stay. Errands should be kept within 5 mile radius, otherwise extra mileage fee may apply. 

private in-home boarding and doggie Day care

Some of our pet sitters are able to host your pets in their homes. Doggie day care services are also available if your dog is fixed, vaccinated and gets along with other dogs. Boarding is provided on a case-by-case basis, and you are able to do a meet-n-greet at pet sitter's home if you choose to. Availability is limited but if you book in advance we will more than likely be able to accommodate you. Day care is $45, dog boarding Sunday - Thursday, $69, and $79 on Fridays and Saturdays. 10% discount for long term stays (over 10 days) is available.

Boarding for cats, rodents and rabbits is $49 per day, Cages, bedding/hay and food is not provided.

I am extremely passionate at what I do and gives me so much joy when the dogs are having fun with me. I am also very active and love outdoor activities such as running, hiking, playing soccer, and going to the beach. I currently do not have any pets so I will treat your pet like it's mine and take them everywhere with me! I helped my Dad puppy train Labrador's to become service dogs.
