Dawn's Pet Sitting and Dog Walking


Service Area

Our current service area(s) are: Knightdale, Raleigh, Wake Forest, Rolesville, and some parts of Clayton and Garner.

We can provide service outside of our service area (ie: Cary/Apex), however, we do charge an extra fee per day for gas expenses.


Unlike most pet sitting companies, we charge a flat rate per day and not per visit for pet sitting services. We also don't charge you to pick up/drop off your key. We also can customize something that works for your budget and your schedule. Fee's usually depend on where you're located (how far I have to drive) and are up to 3 pets. We do charge an additional fee for a household of 4 pets or more just due to how much labor is involved (though, we try to customize it to be as reasonable as possible). We can provide discounts for multi pet households that use our service frequently; we love to customize things that work for your wallet and your pets!

Meet and Greet Consultation - Free of Charge
Dog Walking - ranges between 10 - 13 per walk (up to 3 small/medium dogs and up to 2 large/XL dogs)
  • Walks are 30-40 minutes long (sometimes longer or shorter depending on your dog)
  • I bring portable water with me during the summer months (don't want thirsty puppies!)
  • More than happy to provide 'later in the day' walks for those of you with later work schedules (within reason; I do pet sits during the evening so I try to finish walks by at least 6pm).
  • Schedules can be customized to weekly or just certain days; can offer discounts for weekly walking
Pet sitting - 15 - 30 per day (not per visit; the closer you are, the cheaper it is!)
  • Includes an AM and PM visit; if more visits are necessary, please add 5.00 per extra visit (example: 15 for an AM/PM visit, 20 for an AM/MID/PM)
  • Usually about 20-40 minutes long (per owner request); please add an additional 4.00 for 60 minute visits (have to schedule things around longer visits).
  • Includes letting out for potty breaks/fresh air and/or walking 
  • Providing fresh water and food
  • Giving medication as instructed
  • Scooping/cleaning litter boxes
  • Taking in the mail, leaving lights on/turning lights off
  • Whatever else owner designates (leaving certain room lights on, package intake, etc)

Overnight visits (stay in your home) - rates vary by case; please contact me for information. The rates usually start at 35/night

Need a doggie bath?
  • Due to higher gas costs, I'm currently only providing baths for pet sitting clients (during sits); just add 6.00 for a bath (and you can come home to a clean, happy pup!)

Can also provide house sitting for those who take your animals with you!
