How much does petsitting cost?

Petsitting is available to graduates of our Homeschool program for $80/day or to graduates of our Tutoring program for $85/day.  You will be charged for each day we have your dog in our care, not for each night.

Where will my dog stay?

Your dog will stay in a Traction trainer's private home and will live as part of our family.  We only board one dog at a time so that your dog gets ample attention and time to play.  Some of our trainers may be willing to stay at your house with your dogs.  Ask your trainer about this option.

Does petsitting include any training?

Rules will be strictly enforced during your dog's stay, but our trainers do not set aside time for dedicated training sessions.

What if my dog is not friendly towards other dogs?

No problem! Your dog will be kept separate from our trainer's personal dogs and will get individual time in the house and yard.

Is petsitting always available?

No, but graduates of the Homeschool program are always given priority access to our trainers' availability.  Because each trainer only boards one dog at a time, availability is still limited.  Request petsitting days as far in advance as you can using the Petsitting Request Form.
