GIVE YOUR Pet ONE-ON-ONE TIME
WHEN YOU’RE Not Home

Maybe your pet does better in their own digs. We’ve got your back with our on-demand, pet-loving, professional dog walkers and cat care providers. Our team is what makes us the best in the biz. They’re background-checked and trained in feline and canine behavior, first aid, and home security. They’re pet-obsessed and pet parents themselves.

The Skiptown Difference

01

Real-Time Visit Updates

Get a notification when we arrive and a report at the end with pet photos, a GPS-tracked map, and your Skipper’s comments.

02

Same-Day Booking

Whether you need to schedule in advance or last minute, we’re here for you whenever you need us — even same-day. 

03

Expertly-trained staff

Unlike other pet care services, Skiptown doesn’t use contractors – we hire and train our people. Team members are hired after passing 3 phone interviews, 2 background checks, and 10 hours of classroom and field training.

Skiptown FAQs

To get started with our home services, the first thing you need to do is download the Skiptown app from the Apple App Store or Google Play. After you download the app, create an account and complete your pet’s profile. The app will prompt you to input the required information that we need to have in order to confirm your pet’s eligibility. You’ll also be able to upload your pet’s vet records and schedule a phone consultation through the app.

During the 20 minute phone consultation, we’ll go through all your pet’s information and take detailed notes about your pet’s routine, home access information and security. We’ll confirm your visit routine preferences and make sure you’re comfortable knowing how to customize each visit so we can meet your pet’s individual needs every time! The consultation is also a great time to ask any questions you might have about our service. At the end of the consultation, you’ll be ready to start using Skiptown Home Services.

Yes! While dogs make up a majority of our clients, we love our cats, too, and all of our Skippers are professionally-trained in cat care and feline behavior! For our cat clients, you’ll need to download the Skiptown app and create an account. After you’ve set up your cat’s profile in the app and completed a phone consultation, you can book a home visit for your cat through our app. During cat care visits, we’ll customize our visit routine to meet your cat’s needs! Depending on your cat’s personality, we engage with your cat as much as you like. We know how crafty at hiding some cats can be; that’s why during your Skiptown home visit, we’ll always make sure we locate your cat in the house (even if they don’t want to play!) so you know that they’re doing well. Before we refresh their litter box, we always document what we find in the litter box so you know your cat is eating and drinking normally! You’ll receive a detailed visit report with updates on how your cat is doing and photos of your cat.

We are happy to help you with bringing in the mail, watering the plants, or turning on/off the lights for no additional charge! You just need to indicate in your visit notes any reasonable additional services you need us to handle and we will take care of them during your visit. If you need additional services, please book a visit duration that allows for enough time for your Skipper to complete all requests! For requests that necessitate more time than the reserved visit length, we may extend your visit length and update the charge to your account.
