What we believe separates Awesome Pawz Pet Care, LLC from our competition is a more personalized service. It is quite simple to “cookie cut” pet visits, meaning to treat everyone’s pets the same. We take the time to learn your pet’s habits and quirks, with the ultimate goal of them being more comfortable, less stressed pets. We also schedule a Meet & Greet prior to any pet service so we can meet face to face with you and your pets, accumulate all the necessary details we will need for the visits and of course, answer any questions you may have. The information is stored on our private portal, a convenient interactive database you will have access to update your pet information, manage your schedule and make online payments.

Q: How much advance notice do you require to schedule visits? While we do our best to accommodate as many requests as possible, it is best to plan at least two weeks in advance minimum to schedule pet visits. All new client visits must be preceded by a Meet & Greet so keep that in mind as well. Anything we schedule is always based on the availability of pet sitters in your area so advance planning is crucial especially on holidays. Though we have been able to “save the day” for some folks with emergencies in the past, we typically are not set up for same day, next or last minute visits.
