The BowMeow understands that you need to feel comfortable and confident when entrusting our team with your furry family members. We believe in an in-home consultation for every new client.

The BowMeow will have the opportunity to greet and meet your pets where they are most comfortable, their home. At this time we will go over the details of service we offer while being able to interact and get to know  your furry family members.

Please note that submitting this request form does not confirm your services. The BowMeow will need 24 hours to set a date for your preliminary consultation. All information is confidential.

We suggest at least 2 weeks notice for scheduling pet sitting services.  We will try to accommodate last minute requests for service, as our schedule permits.

We are happy to provide pet sitting estimates upon request.

Currently we only cover the Norfolk area.

HOW DOES PET SITTING WORK?

We provide 1 to 4 visits per day to your home.  You can choose what fits best while you're away, depending on the type of pet and any special needs your they may have.

ADVANTAGES OF PET SITTING

  • Special care and attention - Your pet receives personal loving care and attention during each visit by someone who has your pet’s best interest in mind.
  • Relieve stress on you and your pet – You won’t have to worry about your pet traveling to a boarding/kenneling facility and your pet will be happy staying in a familiar environment in the security of his/her own home/yard.  This also prevents your pet from being exposed to possible illness from other animals.  
  • Regular routine - We will follow your pet's daily care routine, including feeding, watering, exercising and any required medications.
  • Security – Our regular visits can provide extra home security and deter crime while you're away by us providing basic services such as, bringing in mail/newspapers and setting out trash receptacles, as well as turning on/off lights.

We will provide all the necessary forms.
