Pet Sitting

For all the comforts of home and your total peace of mind

Our Pet Minding / Pet Sitting service available in Tauranga, Mount Maunganui and Papamoa is the perfect solution. 

Suitable for cats, dogs or the whole menagerie - a typical pet minding visit involves checking your home, collecting your mail, replenishing food & water, changing the cat litter or using a pooper scooper in your back yard, we’ll even give your dog a walk. Not stopping there… we’ll give your pet a brush, cuddles, a thorough check and spend enough time to ensure they are happy and loved.

Our team of qualified and experienced staff can also give any medication if required.

Additional optional services include:

  • Watering plants and gardens.
  • Putting rubbish bins out and/or bringing them in.
  • Opening and closing curtains or turning lights on and off to give your home a lived in look.
  • And anything else that you need doing, just ask - we are happy to help.

Types of Pet Minding visits

At Absolutely Precious Paws we provide 3 levels of pet minding visits to cater for your budget and your pet's requirements.

  • The Basic Visit – get done what needs to be done.
  • The Standard Visit – a little bit longer than the basic, your pet gets more love and we’ll text you when we’re done.
  • The VIP visit – is an hour long visit, allowing even more time for love and cuddles and we’ll text you when we’re done.

As for price that depends on where you live, how many pets you have, what their normal routine is and how often you need a pet minding visit. Some people have us visit once a day, some twice a day, some every other day, and some we visit up to 4 times a day. We have many clients and they all have different needs so our Pet Minding / Pet Sitting service is tailored to your individual needs.

Little things that matter

  • We will visit with you in your home so we can meet you and your pets. The Pet Minder will assess your needs and your pets needs and give guidance on the level of pet minding service you require.
  • For specialist care… puppies requiring a lot more attention or dogs recovering from surgery or on medication; they may be happier staying with our in-home dog boarding service.
