We Care for Your Pets When You Can’t.

Prancing Poodle offers personalized care for your pets in the safety and security of their own homes. We know that all pets are individuals, with their own special wants and needs.

We get to know your pets, taking the time to learn about their likes and dislikes. We also realize that we must maintain the trust of our clients, who allow us to enter their homes and depend on us for the care of their much-loved pets.

Our commitment to outstanding pet care and customer service provides our clients with the assurance and peace of mind that their homes will be safe and that their pets will flourish, even in their absence.

Daily Routine = Less Stress

Maintaining the consistency of a daily routine is important for the well-being of your pet. Pets experience less stress and are safer from accidents and disease in their own homes. With in-home care, they are the singular focus for their pet sitter and have no need to compete for attention. They come to know their pet sitters and are happy and comfortable with them.

While some pets are fine in a boarding or daycare facility, others are overcome by the noise and confusion. It is for those pets, the ones who need special love and attention, that in-home care is a better choice.
