 Creature Comforts Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Service of Loudoun County

Where love is part of the service!

With thirty years of dedicated service, we are Loudoun County’s oldest pet sitting service


Welcome to Creature Comforts Petsitting Service – the oldest and most trusted petcare business in Loudoun County. We are a small family owned company, in business here in Loudoun County for 30 years. My lifetime of real world, on-the-job experience is your guarantee that you won’t find a more competent, seasoned, or mature staff of professional pet sitters anywhere else than we are at Creature Comforts.
Our many years of hands-on real-world experience have cultivated us into the mature, seasoned, unflappable professionals you are looking for to handle the responsibility of caring for your pets and your home during your absence.

There is no unusual problem, odd incident or outright hilarious occurrence that we have not come across and competently handled over our many adventurous years in pet sitting.   

Your treasured pets and valuable house key will NEVER be handed over to just “one of the staff” here. Heather and I will be the only ones who will ever be entrusted to enter your home! Before we get started with the care of your pets, Heather or I will make a visit to your house to meet you and your animals, so we can all get to know each other and be completely comfortable and happy in one another’s company  

You can rest assured that your pet, whether large or small, exotic or ordinary, dog, cat, cow or canary, will always have a beloved, consistent, and familiar friend/pet sitter to care for them when you are away. 



Putting your dog in a boarding kennel is always an emotionally stressful situation for both dog and owner! Why risk the possibility of your dog contracting a contagious illness, such as Kennel Cough, some other kennel-borne illness, or even becoming infested with fleas? Instead, allow your dog to remain in the comfort of her own home, having all the personalized attention, socialization and loving care that she is used to when she is home with you.

Your buddy will be most comfortable with his usual food and exercise routine and all the familiar comforts of his own familiar surroundings. All gently and expertly overseen by either Heather or me, a Licensed Veterinary Technician, who, for the last 30 years, has been the heart and soul of Loudoun County’s oldest pet sitting service, Creature Comforts.  


As you well know, cats are creatures of habit. As such, cats are even less suited than are dogs for a frightening kennel experience, as many cats are shy and reclusive by nature.  Cats are much happier being kept in their own familiar and comfortable home, where the sights, sounds, smells and love of home are all around him.

With my In-Home Cat Sitting Service, your kitty will always be in his own familiar surrounding, eating his own usual diet and treats, using his own litter-box, and sleeping on that soft cushion on his own window sill where he watches the wild birds and squirrels playing in his own front yard. All visits are lovingly overseen by either Heather or me.

The equation is simple:

OUR Gentle, loving expertise plus OUR affectionate and knowledgable care, equals YOU coming home to YOUR happy and healthy pets.   


Finding a knowledgable and experienced pet sitter to care for exotics and small caged animals can be a tricky situation. Not all pet sitting services have staff who are familiar with, or even willing to deal with, many types of exotic animals. Boarding out your exotics and other caged animals is not recommended as the stress and risks of exposure to contagious illness at boarding kennels is magnified for these types of pets. These special kinds of pets are much safer and happier in the routine surroundings of home, where sights, sounds and smells are familiar. We have cared for snakes, iguanas, Ginkos, Tarantulas, African Tree Frogs, Marine and fresh water aquariums, parrots, (I, myself own Galena, an African Grey Parrot), ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, mice, the list goes on and on.

With our In-Home Care for Exotics and Caged Pets, you can count on us to handle any and all aspects of care for your unusual pet.  We are knowledgable in the care, husbandry and feeding of most exotics. From feeding “Pinkies” with a pair of hemostats to your snakes and frogs, to hand- feeding crickets to your frogs and lizards, if we haven’t already done it before, we’re  more than willing to handle a new species. So you can always feel confident and secure when you choose us to care for your unusual pet, because we are the most competent and willing Exotics Care-Providers in the area.


We have relieved many a frazzled barn manager, giving them a much needed break from the 24/7 stress of caring for a barn full of horses. Heather and I have owned and ridden horses all our lives and are well qualified in all aspects of equine care. My experience working at the Marion DuPont Scott Equine Center has given me the practiced eye to recognize the many ailments and injuries that often befall our equine friends. Heather and I are old hands at treating abscesses, bandaging legs, oral medicating and injections. We’re  good with a brush and hoof-pick and no one can clean and bed a stall better than we can!


From cleaning litter boxes, to administering sub-q fluids to rabbits, to feeding “pinkies” to an African Tree Frog with a pair of tweezers, you can count on us to have the experience to get the job done, no matter how mundane or weird.
