Farm House Sitting

Who takes care of your farm when you travel?

If you’ve been left scratching your head trying to line up someone, why not give Raven's K9 to 5 Pet Sitting Services a text or email?

Don’t let the name fool you. Not only do we work with dogs and cats, but we also care for livestock, horses, backyard chickens and even muck stalls when necessary.

Is Farm Sitting Similar to Pet Sitting?

Yes and no. A farm sitting service has similar tasks in regards to the initial consultation, key and payment requirement, scheduling of services, and completion of pet care forms. However, in the case of farm or livestock animals, the jobs are usually much different.

 

Initial Consultation for Farm/Livestock Clients

All of our clients, regardless of the types of pets or animals they have go through an initial consultation. This gives us time to see if we’re up for the job and allows you time to get comfortable with us handling the responsibility.

 

Type of Animals We Care For Include

Cows, chickens, horses, donkeys, pot-bellied pigs, goats, alpacas, turkeys, dogs, cats, birds, fish, exotics and small caged pets.
