Distinctive Pet Care Services

Meet the Sitters | Make a Reservation

Welcome! We are glad you would like to explore a different type of pet care for your furry friends. We have been providing top-notch pet sitting and pet care in the Littleton community since 1995 and the Best Choice as an alternative to pet boarding.

There are many advantages of your pet staying in their own home. Some of them are; no exposure to illnesses such as kennel cough, canine flu, & parasites.  In-home care will greatly reduce your pets stress by allowing them to stay on their own schedule, being cared for by a responsible and mature pet sitting professional that will treat your pets as if they were their own. There are benefits to the pet owner as well.  We can give your house that “lived-in look” by picking up newspapers and mail, watering plants and alternating lights, etc.  There are no hassles of dropping off and picking up your pets.

Clients absolutely love the convenience and security that our pet sitting service provides and we work 365 days per year. . . all we can ask is that you TRY IT!  We are used to handling pets with separation anxiety and have been known to sit on the floor and hand-feed them!

We recommend you explore our website, as it provides answers to many questions, but don’t hesitate to give us a call, we would be happy to discuss your specific needs because we realize that every pet is different and requires individualized care so they are able to have a successful at home experience.

Everyone at Distinctive Pet Care has been amazing and taken such great care of Layla! Thank you Niki, Erin and Cass!

by Barbara A on DistinctivePetCare.com

My pups Reece and Libby were taken care by Kathy MacKnight and she did an excellent job texting not only how they were but with photos – I’d definitely use her again and again and again.

Thank you!

We used Distinctive Pet Care for the first time when we went on vacation this summer. We usually take our two cats to a kennel, but we thought it would be more comfortable if they could stay at our house. Cassandra was amazing! Our normally shy cat was begging for her attention by the second day. She sent us pictures every day, and a little update so that we knew how our guys were doing. I highly recommend her and Distinctive Pet Care!

Leah, Thanks so much, we love Cass too!

Above and Beyond

We've used Distinctive Pet Care for about a year, and are always happy with the service we receive. We love the flexibility in schedule and usually use DPC during nights and weekends while we are skiing or mountain biking.For our most recent visit, we had the pleasure of meeting a new (to us) caregiver, Tara. During the initial home visit, she showed nothing but love for our two dogs. They got lots of belly rubs and showered her with kisses in return. I knew I had nothing to worry about, leaving them in her hands.When she came for the care visit, she fed them dinner and played in the back yard. While away, I texted Tara to ask if she could leave the light on for them (I had forgotten to mention that during our visit). She had already left the house, but went back to leave the light on and give the puppies some extra love.What amazing service! We are such happy customers.

Thank you Erin!

Once again you came through for me and my boy in our time of need.

Once again you came through for me and my boy in our time of need. Thank you!Cassandra was wonderful!! Buddy fell in love with her. He would his "happy dance" every time she arrived. She was so sweet and attentive to Buddy and his needs. She was always on time and I felt completely comfortable leaving Buddy in her care.  Thanks, Susie

I can't tell you how much Niki means to Corban and me. Corban is a corgi and he loves seeing her. I am a last minute kind of gal due to my family's crazy schedule. We are so fortunate to have her part of our crazy life.

Nikki A

I have a 12 year old basset hound named Bear.  Nikki has been so good and always concerned about his welfare. She has been so accommodating and was so lucky to have her take care of him. Bear and I are sad that we wont see her again after mid April. So, thank you Nikki !! Mr. Bear and Emma

Thank you Emma! Good luck to you!

Niki is amazing! Our dog just loves her and she has been really accommodating regarding our schedules. We feel relieved knowing she is there to check on our little guy. We love the notes she leaves about the visit. So happy to have found her! Thanks Niki!

The Best Hands Down!

Mary Ellen is THE BOMB. She is so kind and loving with my animals -- they are always happy to see me when I return, but they aren't anxious and worried like they have been with previous sitters. It is such a load off of my chest and gives such peace of mind to know that such a caring person is willing to not only feed my kitties and empty their pan, but take some time to play with them and love on them. She's terrific. Thank you, Mary Ellen!

Oh. My. Goodness!!!

These folk have got it going on. They GET our fur babies. I have nothing at all negative to say about Mary Ellen who is a true blessing to me and my little babies. I have to travel quite a bit. It says plenty that they RUN to her when she opens the door. I've used other services...this is as good as it gets!!!
