Pet Au Pair Services

Please understand that we screen you as carefully as you screen us.  We require an initial consult for all home care services, and our initial visit is not a guarantee of service, but rather a meeting to determine whether we'd like to work with one another.  During this free consult/visit, the au pair will determine that your home, inside and out, is a safe environment, free of any dangers, pests, hazards, etc., as well as whether the surrounding neighbors and neighborhood are safe.   If MPAP determines that your home is unsafe in any way for its inhabitants, we reserve the right to refuse service.

House Sitting

Mon – Sun

Our house sitting is different, we don't charge for every tiny little thing.  We are home owners, and we understand what it takes to maintain a household.  We use common sense when it comes to handling situations, and will treat your home as it was our own.  Au Pairs stay overnight, and are at your home as much as possible.

We serve the Missoula and immediate surrounding area, with mileage charged daily for locations more than a 10 mile round trip.   House sitting is a flat rate of $50 per night.  We ask that you add an additional $10 per night for a less than 7 day booking notice, an additional $20 per night for designated holiday days, and our emergency rates (with less than 48 hr notice) are $75 per night, cancellation fees apply.


Care Visits

Mon – Sun: 7a-8p

 

Pet care when you can't be there. Whether you're on vacation, working odd hours, or just need a helping hand, your pets don't have to miss you!   Care visits are done between the hours of 7am and 8pm daily.  If you need care outside of those hours, we encourage you to consider our house sitting.  We do charge the IRS rate for mileage for all jobs that are more than 5 miles away (or a 10 mile round-trip) away. Rates for care visits are Check in Visit $15 (20-30 minutes), All the Little Details Visit $18 (30-45 minutes), Stay and Play Visit $21 (45-60 minutes).
