Our services are designed by pet professionals with the physical and mental well-being of your pets as our top priority.

Fulfillment: Beyond meeting basic needs, pets thrive with regular biological fulfillment that keeps their bodies active and their minds sharp. Each pet has unique preferences for engaging their natural instincts, whether through a romp in the park, a loop around the block, play with people, enrichment puzzles, sniffing through nature, socializing with other pets, naps in the sun, or showing off their tricks to our team members! Clients are encouraged to tell us about what activities their pets love so we can provide outlets for these innate behaviors during our services.

Companionship: Pets form bonds with their people and many desire intentional human contact. Our team is full of genuine pet lovers who are happy to stop for belly rubs during a walk, snuggle up on the couch, or allow an affectionate pet to curl up on their lap. We ensure your pet receives plenty of love while you are out and about based on their preferences for attention.

Visit Reports: We understand nerves that pet owners feel when leaving your pet. At the end of each singular visit or throughout our stay, we send report cards detailing every task performed by our team members and observations of your pet’s behavior throughout our visit. We value earning the trust of our clients through open communication that keeps you updated on how your pet is doing while you are away. Each visit report includes a journal of the service, check in and check out times, a GPS map of the team member’s location, and pictures of your pet.

Cloud 9 has been amazing with my pups!! My doggos can sometimes be pretty particular and finicky about things or people which made me super nervous to have “strangers” come in to take care of them… Cloud 9 was a game changer for me. I love everything about their employees and services. I know my babies are always well taken care of and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for pet care!!
