The Doggie Sitter

Fun, Love & Care!
My name is Michelle DiStefano and I am the Owner of The Doggie Sitter. We provide Dog Walking & Pet Sitting Services in Haverhill, Groveland, West Newbury, and Merrimac, MA. We also reach the Plaistow & Newton, NH areas too.  If you don't see your town listed we still may service you for an additional travel fee.

If your dog is home alone all day while you are either at work, out of town, or on vacation, or if you are physically unable to walk your dog we are here to help! We also care for cats and other household pets as well!

Dog Walking
Every dog loves & needs to be walked. Exercise is crucial to your dog's physical and mental well being. Dogs also crave love & attention. However many dogs just lie around all day while their "humans" are busy "bringing home the bacon" - working all day.  

Dogs are one of Gods finest and most loved creatures. Why do you think we love them so much?  Because they love us, unconditionally!  It is proven that loving & petting your dog can lower your blood pressure, reduce stress levels and decrease depression.  So we should be as good to them as they are to us!

If you are a busy dog owner who wants to make sure your dog is happy & healthy, you could use a dog walker.  We will keep them physcially fit, happy and "tuckered out" when you get home from your busy day!

Pet Sitting
If you are going out of town or on vacation, consider our Pet Sitting Services. Your dog or cat will stay in it's own home, surrounded by his/her safe & familiar environment. 

Why use an At Home Pet Sitter instead of a Kennel?
