The Best Pet Care in Indian Land South Carolina for your Dogs, Cats and other Domestic Pets


Indian Land Pet Sitting has a different business model than other pet sitting and petcare companies. We are so very fortunate to have several pet sitting “couples” that work together to give our clients the best service for their pets. We have experience with dogs, cats, bunnies, goats and any domestic pet you may have. Our couples will back each other up. So you never have to worry about your pets being unattended. Indian Land Pet Sitting never cancels or no shows on a scheduled visit.

Indian Land Pet Sitting is fully insured and bonded. We know how to properly walk a dog and how to keep the dog safe from other dogs and out of reach of humans. We know how to administer medications such as topical, oral and insulin injections. On every visit we clean the litter boxes.  We also clean the food and water bowls. We happily bring in the mail and packages. If the client has any special requests we are happy to oblige.

If you think you may worry about your sitter showing up to the visit, we give you peace of mind. Our clients can sign onto their account as see what time the pet sitter has arrived and see their location on the GPS map. When the visit is complete, the client will get an email from Indian Land Pet Sitting with all the information on how the pets are doing and some beautiful pictures of their beloved animals.

We also make doing business with us easy. We have online scheduling. All of  the client’s info is at our pet sitter’s fingertips so the client can rest assured we are up to date on any changes they may make. We take all major credit and debit cards. Indian Land Pet Sitting is also always happy to take a personal check too!

Ideas To Make Owning A Dog Easier

Easier Dog Ownership

As Pet Sitters and dog owners for many years, we have come up with several ways to make caring for your pet a little easier. Whether you live in a home or an apartment we hope you can use a few that you haven’t tried. Let us know what you think!

As any dog owner will tell you, at some point your dog will experience tummy troubles. We have never met a dog who hasn’t. If they are exposed to something at the dog park or eat something smelly in your backyard the problem will begin. A trip to the vet is always in order, and many times they will suggest a bland diet which includes rice. This means real rice. NOT quick cook rice. This is why a rice cooker is invaluable. It is very inexpensive, easy to use and quicker than a trip to the Asian restaurant.

Towels, towels, towels. You can never have too many towels for your dogs. If it rains or snows you will need towels. Towels are great to put down on the floor and use as piddle pads for your puppy. Bath time will require towels. There are always messes that require towels. Make sure before you throw out your worn towels you have enough for your pups. If you have some towels to pass on, please give them to local animal shelters and rescues, as they are always looking for donations of clean towels.

We have met lots of dogs who happily drip water outside the water bowl when taking a drink. If you have a wood floor, this is going to be a problem over time. If you have some cloth placemats that you no longer use, combine those with a piece of waxed paper underneath to help protect the floor. The waxed paper can be changed out regularly and the placemat can be washed in the machine.

Having a carpeted staircase and dogs with fur is a backbreaking battle. Vacuuming stairs is not a delight. This is when the dog brush comes in handy. Start at the top of the stairs, brushing each tread with the brush. Working top to bottom is the best way. Not only will you get up all the dog hair, but it nicely fluffs up the nap of the carpet making it look fresh.

Dog or child gates are invaluable. Whether in an apartment or home, there is usually an area that can be gated off to secure your dog. Kitchen, hallways, baths and laundry rooms are usually good choices. Using a gate will make your dog feel less “trapped” as he will be able to see what is beyond the gate. They are wonderful when you have visitors that come to your home or any time your pet needs to be secured. They have come a long way since the wooden variety of gates, and many are very attractive for your décor.

If you live an apartment and have a secure balcony and a sliding glass door, we have one last idea for you. We have many clients who live in apartments with their dogs. They are constantly opening and closing the sliding door so their pups can sit outside on the balcony and watch the world go by. There is a dog door made specifically for sliding glass doors. It makes living in an apartment with dogs so much better. Now we don’t recommend leaving it open when you are not home as many apartments have strict rules about leaving dogs unattended on the balcony.

Do you have a clever idea that makes your life easier with your dog?

Have You Thought About Using a Professional Pet Sitter?

Have you thought about hiring a professional pet sitter to take care of your dogs,  cats or other precious pets? Here are a few reasons you might want to consider doing so.

We have received many calls from prospective clients who have in the past obligated friends or neighbors to pet sit and it hasn’t turned out very well. A friend may say yes when asked to pet sit, even though they really don’t have the time or inclination to properly take care of your animals. One event comes to mind when the pet sitting neighbor somehow forgot to put new litter in the litter box after throwing out the old litter. I imagine I don’t need to describe the horror scene that the owners faced when they walked in the door.

There are dog and cat owners who happily use kennels. For some pets that works out just fine. However if you have a sensitive dog, being around the sometimes constant barking in a kennel will stress them out severely. The sights, sounds and smells of their comfy home simply cannot be duplicated in any kennel setting. The pathogens and exposure to other animals are additional reasons why a professional pet sitter maybe a better choice for you and your pets.

If you own many pets, a pet sitter can end up being a good value when you travel. Indian Land Pet Sitting has different rates depending on how many dogs and cats you have. The more you have the better the value. However if you also have a bird, a lizard and need the fish fed daily we can accommodate that with no up charge. Also we have experience as professional pet sitters to administer oral meds, diabetic injections, and special diets without charge.

Don’t forget that your home is looked after, your mail brought in, plants watered and other general care taking requests of the home. We can provide a lockout service for you when you keep your keys on file. We also provide daily pictures and updates and you can see on GPS when we arrive and leave your home. Fully insured and bonded, any property damage done by your pets while the pet sitter is present, or medical expenses incurred are covered. One last, very important point to having an ongoing relationship with a professional pet sitter is simply this: the sitter will become important to your pets and enrich their lives. We have many dog walking clients whose dogs start howling in anticipation of the pet sitter’s arrival.

Indian Land Pet Sitting – Schedule A Complimentary Meet and Greet in Advance Of Travel

Meet and greets are always complimentary at Indian Land Pet Sitting. Why not schedule one in advance? Whenever that unexpected trip presents itself, your dog, cat or other pet are one less thing to worry about as your pet sitting needs are covered.

We get many requests last minute for new customers who have pets. Unfortunately they have not planned in advance for their care if work or travel calls. We try very hard to squeak in the meet and greet before their trip. However many times our schedule is booked and we cannot accommodate the customer. This is why it is a great idea to schedule a meet and greet in advance.

I have had prospective customers call for pet sitting last minute because the lodging they thought was pet friendly turned out to not be so. Also we get calls because people have to travel for family health emergencies, which many times are unforeseen. In addition we get a many, many last minute calls from pet owners who thought they had their pet sitting covered by a “friend”.

What happens during an Indian Land Pet Sitting meet and greet? The pet sitter meets the pets and sees if he/she think there is a good fit. The pet owner sees that the sitter is an animal lover and very enthusiastic about their pets. All the pet details are gone over. A few questions covered would be where is the food, how are the pets fed, and are there special medications? Additional details about the home are always covered. Pet sitting forms are filled out online prior to the meet and greet, so we have information in hand about the client’s pets, their home, veterinarian, and client’s contact information.

Having a professional pet sitter like Indian Land Pet Sitting ready to take care of your pets when you travel or can’t be home will give you peace of mind. Again, the meet and greet is always complimentary so why not plan in advance and schedule today? Call or click on link below. 803-228-3962



Your Cat Needs A Pet Sitter Too!

Cats Need Pet Sitters Too!

 Many pet owners of kitties love the fact that they are independent and self- sufficient creatures. But when it comes to your vacation, travel or work away from home, don’t let that independence fool you.

Although your cats might not require a walk like a dog, your kitties require attention and care just like their canine counterparts. Pet sitters offer services to make your time away from home stress free and give you great peace of mind.

Keeping litter boxes clean and fresh daily, providing fresh food and maintaining that very important fresh water bowl or fountain will keep your pet cats from feeling less stressed. Treats, playtime and cuddles for the more social cats is essential to keeping them happy. Special needs such as pills or insulin shots are additional services your pet sitter can provide.

Yes, good neighbors are priceless, but don’t ruin your relationship by asking them to pet sit. Many bad situations happen when you ask a friend to pet sit.  A professional sitter has the experience and knowledge, along with insurance and bonding to protect your pet and your home if a problem occurs. You also have the benefit of your home being looked after, plants watered, Amazon Packages brought in and many other custom services you may need.

If you live in the South Charlotte Indian Land area, please contact us for your cat sitting, pet sitting, dog walking and animal care needs. Our Meet and Greet is always complimentary. We are always happy to meet you and your pet’s individual needs. Cats, Dogs, Iguanas we have you covered. As always we treat your pets like family!
