2019 Peak Season Days and Fee info:

Holiday fee is $3.00 per visit for Occasional/Vacation pet sitting visits and $10 for Overnights.

There are dates in which our Peak Season fee applies. Rates are  increased during these times due to the significant increase in the need  for pet sitting. The Peak Season Fees do not apply to the individual  holiday only. Several days before or after the actual holiday may also fall under our Peak Season Policy. This is applied to compensate the pet sitters for the difficult schedules they take on as well as 'giving up' having a holiday of their own.
