At-home pet care
We care for your pets in their home – where they are happiest – while you work or travel. Pet owners rely on The Paw Sitter for dog walks, potty breaks, cat care, feeding, play and cuddle time. Owner Leigh Peterson and her backup sitters are available 7 days a week, 365 days a year in Stow, Munroe Falls, Silver Lake, Cuyahoga Falls, Kent and Tallmadge.
The Paw Sitter was founded on the belief in high standards of respect and care for your property and pets. We understand that discerning pet and property owners aren’t comfortable letting just anyone in their home. With The Paw Sitter, you’ll return to your home knowing it has been well cared for, not feeling like it has been lived in. Our system revolves around keeping your information strictly private.
The Paw Sitter’s founder and owner/operator is Leigh Peterson, shown here with Officer Anthony Mancuso and Badger, Munroe Falls’ first K9 police dog. Leigh is a former employee of The Humane Society of Greater Akron, volunteer and foster with Paws & Prayers, and is Red Cross Certified in Pet CPR. She is a 2000 cum laude graduate of The University of Akron (BA).
The Paw Sitter carries a one million dollar liability insurance policy that includes protection for your property and neighbors from fire, negligence, bodily injury and more. Criminal background-checked backup sitters are insured and bonded, assuring your pets will still be cared for as scheduled on busy days and in case of emergencies.
