Pet Sitting

Pet sitting at The Pad is exclusive for current Pad Pack clients and members, and who are within a 1.5 mile radius of our grooming base in Accokeek, MD.

What is The Pad pet sitting?

When a caring, loving and trustworthy human, enters your home, to tend to your pet’s needs when you’re unable to!

Prior to all recurring pet sitting visits, a thorough in-person consultation is held about a week prior to when the 20-25 minute visitations actually begin. The initial consult can range from 15-30 minutes long. Consults are essential to giving your pet and sitter, a smooth and confident start. During the consult the sitter will see your pet in their territory, creating greater security for your pet, during the first visit, and following visits!

Please have essentials such as, leashes, bowls, treats, toys or anything the sitter will have to interact with, to be consistently in the same area as mentioned in the consult. This gives your pet more one on one time with your sitter, and creates less confusion and accidentals from happening - optimizing your pet’s time and getting your money’s worth!

Transparency and clear communication is so important to us, which is why we promise live video, pictures, and visit notes for each visit, so you can even see your pet while you are away πŸ’š

It is up to you to decide what you want/need your pet to have during the visit!

Earthbath Shampoo!

Earthbath products are used on all of our pups over 6 weeks old! We enjoy the fact they are less damaging to the environment than other brands, and are super safe and gentle to the Pad Packs’ skin! We highly recommend the β€œready to use” formulas for at home use as well, whenever you get in a dirty emergency! This brand does not include parabens, sulfates, phosphates, phthalates, and soaps, making it harder to dry out your pet’(s) skin! Our salon favorites, are Mango Tango 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner, Puppy Mild Shampoo, and Hypoallergenic Shampoo!
