Whether you are out of town on a business trip or vacation, one of our sitters will stay in your home, sleep overnight and keep your pets on the same feeding and exercise schedule as you would on a normal working day. Once you have established a relationship with a sitter, we do our best to keep you with the same person for each future booking.
Our cat visits are a minimum of a half hour per visit. We will visit once or twice per day depending on your pets needs. We will supply them with fresh food and water daily, administer medication, clean and change the litter when necessary, play with, and groom your cats if required. We will also collect your mail, water your plants and make sure your house has a lived in look.
We provide either private or coupled dog walks. Private walks are half an hour each, while coupled walks are 45 minutes in length.
For various reasons whether it be age, illness or just plain loneliness, some pets cannot be left for too long on their own. We therefore provide an hourly companion service for your pet. Minimum booking is 4 hours.
For peace of mind and to meet your insurance needs, we will provide house checks while you are away. This service entails checking your house to make sure all windows and doors are secure, collecting mail and flyers from outside, watering plants and rotating lights so that your house has a lived-in look.
In extremely cold weather we will make sure your water is running and the pipes are not frozen. When heavy snow occurs we will clear the entranceway according to city bylaws and contact your snow removal service to schedule a visit as needed.
For long term assignments and peak holiday periods, please book as early as possible to ensure availability. Due to the amount of time our sitters spend at your home - regardless of starting time, our live-in rates apply on a per day basis not per night / or 24hr. basis.
We cannot provide service without prepayment.
25% Cancellation fee is applicable on all bookings once you have reserved a sitter.
50% fee is applicable should you cancel 72 hours prior to departure.
100% fee 24 hours prior to departure.
"I love the service from bredinsbest. We don't hesitate to use them whether we're going to be out of town for a couple of days or a couple of weeks. The cats are always relaxed and happy when we get home. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them."
"Whenever we plan a holiday the first call we make is to Bredin's Best who always find someone wonderful to stay at the house and take care of our five cats. Over the years we've had a number of different sitters from Bredin's, and Tuula and Jean have always been able to find someone caring and careful. New sitters and repeat ones always take the time to understand the needs of both the cats and the house and we know we can enjoy our travels knowing everything is fine at home. Although generally everything runs smoothly, twice we've been especially grateful for the professionalism of Bredin's: during our renovations they were incredibly accommodating, staying in the house with the inevitable dirt and noise and making sure the cats were safe and happy. Another time we were away in midwinter when our furnace went out. Had it not been for the compassionate and quick response of Bredin's who knows what could have happened! We are grateful to our friends who put us in touch with Bredin's and very happy to recommend them to others."
"I have complete peace of mind, leaving my two cats in the hands of the excellent care-givers from BredinsBest while I'm away."
"My pets are my family - and I would never put them in a kennel while away on vacation. So live-in pet sitting was the only option for me. I wouldn't trust my pets with just anyone and Bredins Best has been fantastic. When I'm away it's comforting to know my pets and home are in good hands! I get a worry-free vacation and I get to come home to happy unstressed pets!"
"It's good to know the lights are on, mail and newspapers are collected when nobody is home."
