Exercise

Dog Walking

Did you know that lack of exercise can create behavior problems within your dog? Separation anxiety, chewing, excessive licking, going potty inside the home, plus more. Exercise not only gets them out of the house and lets them enjoy the fresh air, they get mental stimulation, able to explore, sniff, and get some fun during your work day!

 

Feel at ease knowing our experienced professionals are taking extra care during the walk by paying attention to our surroundings, walking as fast or as slow as Fido needs, all while giving them the love and adventure they deserve.

Pet Sitting

Planning a family vacation? Need to go out of town for a business trip? Don’t worry, we got you covered! Our dedicated and fully insured pet care professionals will keep your mind at ease while you’re away by staying in your home with your pet(s) to provide the best care possible. Animals are more comfortable with their familiar surroundings, less stress and worry, and get one on one focused attention. Kennels or daycare can cause illness, discomfort, anxiety, and have inexperienced providers. Having a sitter in your home also protects and eliminates "away from home" signals. We will water plants, collect mail, take cans to the curb, etc. and of course send plenty of pictures and updates of your furry family member. We are familiar with all pets; dogs, cats, chickens, goats, rodents, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and are comfortable administering medication - at no extra fee.

NEW! Now offering training with boarding services AND/OR overnight stay in your home. Let one of our certified, licensed, and insured force free dog trainers help out you and your pup while you're out of town. Come back from vacation to a pup with better walking skills, or we can work on reactivity towards other dogs, whatever behavior needs addressed, we will do so with positive reinforcement, mental/physical stimuli, and set the dog up to succeed. Each day the pup will be provided with a 1 hour focused session, mini lessons throughout the day, updates with pictures and homework for when you return. Not sure which service would be best for your dog? Please inquire within and we would be happy to help.

TESTIMONIALS

“Ellaree sat for my two cats recently and was fabulous. She dealt with my old cat's special needs (extra litter box work, brushing, etc.) and my young cat's shyness wonderfully. She sent me pics every day and everything was in order when we got home. I am so happy to know that next time we go away we can again have peace of mind about the pets. I checked Ellaree's references and both gave stellar recommendations. She is also a lovely, high-energy person. I will definitely hire her again and have already recommended to a friend.”


Cathy F.

“EC Petcare is a life saver! I needed a sitter last minute and they were able to come take care of my two dogs and cat for a few days. Their communication was fantastic, always sent pictures, and even gave me some great advice on training our recent new addition, a 4 month old puppy. Thanks for everything!”


Abby W.

“EC Petcare helped watch my kitty for about a week. She came by the house daily, brushed her, cuddled, played, and cleaned the litter box daily. I'd definitely hire again!”
