Bonded and Insured

Busy Bee Critter Sitters and its staff are all bonded, insured and police checked for your peace of mind.

We are Pet Lovers

All the critter sitters here at Busy Bee are experienced pet owners themselves, with a passion for providing all animals with the care, enrichment and love that they deserve.

Special Needs are NO Problem!

Our pet care professionals are able to give oral, topical and injected medications, handle pets with social, behavioural or trust issues and provide specialized care for ill, injured or senior pets.

Enriching Experiences

Your dogs will experience a selection of the beautiful parks and trails in their area and meet new, compatible dog friends in rotating group walks. Your cats will have fun with toys and games as well as time for cuddles and petting.


We balance between the routine your pet needs to feel comfortable and the variety to keep them interested. You can also relax with the knowledge that all visits and walks take place when you and your pet need them.
