About Amanda

Hi and welcome to Wags Columbus! We provide dog walking and pet care services, specializing in In Your Home Overnight Pet Sitting for people who want to come home to wagging tails and kisses. We are your Columbus Ohio alternative for boarding your dog.

We love critters. We are crazy about dogs, but love all critters. Instead of boarding your dog (or any of your pets) in a loud, scary, stale kennel or boarding facility, let them stay in the comfort of their own domain (err...home). We will hang out with them, take them on walks, stay the night with them (if you'd like). Whatever their normal routine is, we will cater to your critters.

Before the start of any service, we do a Meet-and-Greet first so you can meet us, we can meet you and your pet(s) and you can make the best decision for you and your critters. You’ll have the opportunity to show us around their domain and let us know your critter(s) favorite things (ie. favorite toys, treats, hang out spots) to ensure they have a stay-cation while you're away or on vacation!

We Offer:

In Our Home Pet Sitting - Exclusive for DogVacay Customers! Going on a trip? Going to be away from home for a few days and need a loving place for Fido to stay? Let him stay with us! We'll make sure they have a stay-cation while you're on vacation! They'll get plenty of love, walks, snuggles, human time and, if they like to swim, they can even have a pool day! If your pup is not as fond of water as he is on land, no problem...we've got a fenced in yard as well! We love dogs and would love to take care of yours while you're away. Trust us, your pup(s) will thank you!

- Dog Walking (30-minute and 60-minute walks) - Come home to a calmer pup by providing him/her with a walk around town. You can choose between a 30 minute walk or a 60 minute walk. Whichever you choose, your dog will just be happy to get his/her snout into new environments. Of course, included free of charge are belly rubs, treats and loving.

- In Your Home Overnight Pet Sitting - If you hate kenneling or boarding your pets, or the thought of your pet being stressed out and uncomfortable tears at your heart strings, then this service is the perfect option for you! Overnight In-Your-Home Pet Sitting allows your dog or pets to stay in their home, stick to their routine and their comfortable place while you are out of town. This service includes any small critters (cats, fish, hamsters, etc) up to 3 pets. There will be a small charge for any additional pet. Service includes two 15-minute potty breaks, one 30 minute walk in the middle of the day, fresh water, food, treats for good behavior, playtime and LOTS of snuggle time! We also care for your home while you’re away as part of our overnight pet sitting. We will bring in the mail, rotate lights to make sure your home looks lived in, vacuum if needed, and more. Overnight stays are completely customizable based on your needs and wants. You’ll
come home to a happy home and happy pets!

- House Sitting - Don’t have any pets? Not a problem! We are more than happy to watch over your home while you’re away. We will bring in the mail, rotate lights and check in twice a day to make sure your home is safe and sound. House-sitting is completely customizable based on your needs and wants. During our Meet-and-Greet, you can show us around and explain exactly what you would like to have done while you’re away.

- Kitty-Sitting- We all know cats and dogs are VERY different, that is why make sure to keep their needs separate. There are two options for you to choose from: Overnight Sitting and Kitty Check-Ins.

-- Overnight In-Your-Home Sitting - If your cat requires (or simply wants!) more human attention than most, we will stay overnight to make sure
his/her human attention needs are met.

-- Kitty Check-Ins - If your cat could care less if any humans are home, that’s okay too, we know it’s nothing personal. We will check in twice a day, once for 30 minutes and once for 15 minutes. The 30 min visit will include feeding, freshening water and playtime with your cat. The 15 minute visit will include bringing in mail, rotating lights, cleaning the litter box and to just make sure everything is safe and sound in your home. We can also do a complete litter box clean out and wash, vacuum cat trees, etc. Anything you’d like to have done for your feline family member we will cover in the Meet-and-Greet and we’ll be happy to treat them like royalty. (Let’s face it, all cats think they’re royalty anyways!)

- Home Visits (aka Potty Breaks) - If you are unable to make it home during the day to let your pup out, we offer a quick potty break service. These are 15 minute visits to allow your pup to stretch their legs and do their business (go potty!) while you’re away! It also gives them some mid-day human time. This is best suited for homes with fenced in yards or areas where dogs can run. If there is no fenced yard (or area for them to run), we suggest (and in some cases require) a 30-minute dog walking appointment to be fair to the pets and make sure your pup has enough time to release some energy and go potty. If your mail has arrived by the time we get there, we would be more than happy to bring that in for you as well!

- Pet Taxi - Does your pet have a vet visit or play date? We can take them! Do you need to pick up more litter or food or medications but don’t have the time? We can help! If you are unable to get away from work or your daily duties to get your pet(s) where they need to go, we will come by your house, pick up your critter and take them wherever you need. Prices vary depending on distance.

- Yard Waste Clean-Up - Where we do your dirty work! If you don’t have the time or just hate doing it, we will come to your home and clean up all of the poop in your yard! This can be arranged as a weekly, monthly or as-needed service. We use eco-friendly, green waste bags so the Earth will thank you as well as your pets and guests!
