Our Dog Sitting Service
We understand (first-hand) how difficult it can be to leave home without our furry family members. We also understand that sometimes situations arise, and it’s not always possible to bring along our pets while traveling for work, vacation, or visiting friends and family. In times like these, the best option is to hire a Professional Pet Nanny to provide convenient and customized in-home pet care for the fur-kids.
Our Pet Nannies use their pet care experience and knowledge to take care of your pet, even in uncommon situations. Whether you need pet sitting for occasional weekend trips, or require pet sitting while regularly traveling for work, our dedicated Pet Nannies are here to help.
For our dog sitting service, most pups require 3 or 4 visits each day, spaced out as evenly as possible: morning, afternoon, dinner and, bedtime. Some dogs have specific needs (such as puppies, pets that require medication, or senior dogs) and may need 5 or 6 visits each day. If you prefer Overnight Care (a Pet Nanny sleeps over) – we are happy to help. We will discuss your pet’s personality, specific needs, the normal routine and then create a custom schedule per your wishes.

Benefits of Choosing The Peaks Pet Nanny
Hiring a pet sitter is no longer considered a luxury. It has become a necessity and often more affordable than kenneling, especially multiple pets. Usually, kennels charge more for “add-ons” like the extra time out of their crate or run, providing necessary medication or even feeding the pet their regular food. More and more owners choose to use a professional pet sitting company to take advantage of all the benefits such care provides:
- Pets are happier in their own home and less stressed
- Their diet and exercise routine will remain consistent
- Eliminated travel trauma, for both pet and owner
- Exposure to illness is eliminated
- No longer impose on friends or neighbors by asking for favors
- Peace of mind knowing an experienced Pet Nanny will take the best care of your furry best friend
The Peaks Pet Nannies are skilled and dedicated to providing the best care possible. Many of our Pet Nannies have been with our company for several years, some over a decade. They have heart and compassion and truly love their furry customers. Our incredible team has been carefully cultivated since 2004, and many nannies are clients, friends, and family members. Many Pet Nannies have dog training experience, volunteer with shelters and rescue organizations, or foster pets. Most Pet Nannies are certified in Pet CPR and First Aid. We are passionate about pets and love working with animals. Every member of our caring team strives to provide the best service possible, time, and time again.
Each member of our Pet Nanny Team are thoroughly interviewed, in-person, by Gina & Patric Brugna, who are both former corporate staffing managers, supervisors, and recruiters.

Why The Peaks Pet Nanny is Preferred
If a busy schedule keeps you on-the-go, you’ve most likely already considered various pet care options. Asking friends or family for a favor, online apps with people that never met you or your pets, or hiring a hobby “pet sitter” without a backup plan if they should become sick or unavailable. A hobby pet sitter or a neighbor might not understand what to do if a pet is nervous, hyper, or becomes ill. Without experience in animal care, these are the type of situations pet owners might receive frantic calls and return home as quickly as possible. Most pet parents prefer not to impose on neighbors or friends, especially when their pet might need more care than expected.
There are a few options for pet owners to think over carefully. However, only a professional pet sitting company can truly deliver a team of first-rate and dependable pet nannies and provide consistency in their services, trust, a bond with your pet, and invaluable peace of mind.

How to Find the Best Dog Sitter in New Jersey?
While it might be tempting to reach out to a teenager and give them a little cash to take care of your dog, keep in mind the old saying, “you get what you pay for.” How will a teen handle inclement weather, unforeseen situations, or emergencies? Unexpected situations happen all the time, and it could play a significant role in your pet’s health or requiring you to alter a busy schedule if they decide they can’t visit as promised. Numerous times, we have helped pet owners calling in sheer panic because the person they had lined-up canceled the last minute or didn’t even show up.
Relying on people who aren’t professionals can backfire at the worst possible moment.
