What Pet Owners Say About Us

5-Paw Review Rating

I have been using Derby City Critters Sitters for over 2 years as I travel for my job. Vivian and her team take extra special care of my two elder dogs. I choose the Triple Crown Service (30 minutes for each visit) and my regular sitter Brandon comes to my house twice a day. He walks, feeds, and loves them each visit. I get an email with an update and photos every time he visits. Derby City Critters Sitters is always professional, and I trust them explicitly! Highly recommended!!

Dana Moore, Louisville, KY

We were nervous to leave our senior dog behind while on vacation, but knew that she would be the most comfortable at home in her own environment. Vivian and her team were so easy to work with, very professional and kept us updated on how our dog was doing each visit. We felt so relieved to know she was being well cared for and loved on! We would highly recommend them and will be using them again in the future.

Beveraly Koenig, Louisville, KY

We were in Louisville for just under a week and needed 3 walks per day for our 13 year old French Bulldog. Derby City was so professional right from the start. We met the whole team on a zoom call. They have all the right insurance, etc. Everyone treated our special furry baby like their own. She had so much fun and waited with excitement for them to come. I highly recommend using this service.

Expert Pet Care & Dog Sitter in Louisville, KY

When it’s time for you to head to work each day or go on vacation, it’s so stressful to pack up all your pets’ things and drive them to a kennel.

Why not make it easy on yourself and less stressful for both of you by having your pet stay at home where they are most comfortable.

We specialize in professional, at-your-home pet sitting. You will have the peace of mind knowing your animal is being well-cared for in the comfort of their own home.

From cats and dogs to snakes, lizards, and other critters, we will care for your pet as if it were our own.

This visit is short, sweet and to the point. It’s strictly a 10 minute potty break and a water bowl refill. No medication or meals will be given.

A Dog Walk is a 30 minute visit that includes a private walk and potty time. Feeding and medications can be administered on request.

Enjoy your vacation even more knowing your critters are safe and sound in their own home instead of a loud kennel. We offer overnight pet sitting, hotel pet sitting and our Triple Crown vacation pet sitting option which is 3 visits each day. Whatever your pet needs, our sitters will be there for them so you can rest easy.

We don’t just cater to our canine friends. We love all critters! From cats and birds to fish and reptiles, we will ensure your companion is well taken care of. Based on the specific type of pet and their needs, you can schedule a visit every day or every other day.
