In-home “Sniff ‘n Greet” thirty to 60 minute consultation (FREE!)
We are not the dog whisperer or the amazing Dr. Doolittle, but close! We are bonded as well as fully trained in the care and needs of most pets. There is the occasional pet we might be unfamiliar with but are happy to learn. We’ll complete a few forms to ensure unparalleled care and enjoy a belly rub or two. Remember, we care for paws & claws, fins & feathers, manes & tails, etc. I guess we could discuss 8-legged critters or the kind that slither on their bellies. Most important, we promise to treat your loved ones as well as our own. My sister says, “When I die, I hope to come back as one of Wanda’s pets.” And I say “Give me to Gaille or Nora!”

Dog Walking
All 30-minute dog walks are tailored to your pet’s abilities and needs. The cost per walk is $18 dollars and other family dogs may be added for $1 to $3 per dog depending on training and needs. There is a 10% discount for 3 or more scheduled walks a week or a 20% discount for walks scheduled by the month. All dogs are active, social animals who greatly benefit from regular exercise and activity. If a walk is not possible due to weather, road conditions or other factors, walk time is easily converted into playtime, belly rubs, brushing, and lots and lots of love.

Home Visits
Whether you are at work or away, your pets need daily loving and attention. We offer regularly scheduled visits (even overnight) to your home or hotel to care for your pet(s). Each visit includes feeding, fresh water, med administration if applicable, outdoor time with waste cleanup, exercise as appropriate, social interaction, and tons of love.

For families who are away, a home security check will add to your piece of mind. We will pick up the mail, bring in the paper, make some light and shade adjustments, and check the house and perimeter.

We can text or call at each visit if desired or e-mail at least once a day to let you know everything is okay. We also can be reached anytime by phone for updates on your babies. Ramona Pet Sitters offer 1, 2, or 3 visits a day, with each visit usually 20-30 minutes depending on number of pets and their needs. We happily care for dogs, cats, birds, most small mammals, turtles, and fish. We also offer services for horses, and other backyard critters, with turnouts, feedings, fly spraying the occasional stall mucking.

Puppy Sitting
Everyone loves puppies, but puppies do require extra time and attention. We suggest frequent visits to help maintain your established training guidelines but you may want to consider having your pup come and stay with one of our staff while you are gone for an additional ten dollars per night. Please call 760-443-3868 for details.

In-home overnights ($55 base rate including home security check)
Let’s face it. If you have a whole brood, multiple horses or other mammals, or a pet that feels more secure in his own home, We’ll bring the slumber party to them. In addition to playtime, we’ll do the feeding, plant watering, clean up waste, give meds if necessary and make sure your return is pleasant. We’ll even tell them a bedtime story. The only thing they’ll be without is you and maybe they won’t even notice. This service is not always available so it is recommended that you call early.

Boarding at Camp Nora
Friends affectionately call coming to stay Camp Nora as “going to Camp Nora”. As you are on vacation or having work done at home, so will your beloved pet(s) be having fun. Our promise to you is that he or she will be treated as members of our own families, with outings to the park, walking, playing with other pets and people, and lots of attention. Crates are not used unless stipulated by the owner or preferred by the pet. One caveat: your pets must be up on all their vaccines and be free of fleas.

Pet Taxi ($1/mile from my home)
Whether to the groomers, the vet or the airport, Ramona PetSitters will chauffeur your pet to wherever he needs to go. For $25/hour, we can also keep him company before, during and after his appointment. In addition, of course, he gets lots of pats and cuddles too. We can also help if you need us to pick up supplies.

Doggie Day Care at Camp Nora ($2/hr, puppies $3/hour)
Come to Camp Nora! If you have an appointment or shopping to do and don’t want your dog or cat to be alone, drop Fido or Fifi off to one of us. They will be one of the family. They may be seen taking a walk around the neighborhood. But wait, there’s more! Perhaps it’s a good day for a swim or racing along a deck. If you wonder if Fido enjoyed himself, just check out his super tail wagging.

Special Needs Care (personalized)
Does your beloved pet have a medical condition for which your veterinarian has prescribed treatment, such as oral medications, insulin injections, or therapy? Does your pony have an abscess that needs medicated soaking? Just call and we’ll come when you’re away from home to make sure he gets what he needs, when he needs it. As a retired registered nurse, I (Wanda) will follow your veterinarian’s written instructions.

Medications & Vaccines (based on veterinarian recommendations)
If you decide that your dog or cat needs vaccination, I can go to you ($10 for home visit & $8 to give the shot) or you can come to me ($5 plus cost of the vaccine.) Based on your pet’s vaccination records, I can order the vaccine or you can purchase it from your vet or pet pharmacy. This is no substitution for your pet’s annual physical. Whether to vaccinate or not is a difficult decision that you need to make.
