1 For The Road... Pet Services! 

For all of your pet sitting needs - we are the go to pet sitters of Central Florida


We appreciate your interest in our company and in our service.  Our goal is to provide unparalleled service and care, for pets big and small, short and tall!  We will love your “fur kids” as if they were our own; we take great care to make them feel comfortable, safe, secure and happy!


We offer many services for you and your pets (or furry children – as we call them).


How we began…


A vacation is your time to unwind, relax, and take a break from the obligations and stresses of everyday life.  The last thing you want is to worry about the safety of your dog, cat or home.  Finding someone to watch your pets, when you travel, is always a challenge.  Traditionally, your options involved coaxing an unreliable friend or family member into watching your pets, or boarding them in a kennel [that is simultaneously boarding other dogs and cats].


This is how we came to be.


For years, we could not and would not, leave our pets to take a much-needed family vacation.  There was no one reliable or trustworthy enough for us.  We have been there and have felt the same anxiety you are probably experiencing …


Pet owners now have an option with 1 For The Road…Pet Services.  We are the RELIABLE care you and your pet deserve!



Why use us, for your pet sitting needs?


  • Our meet & greet consultation is always complimentary!


  • When you LOVE what you do, it SHOWS!  We look forward to work every day.  What a blessing! 


  • Available for daily visits, weekly stays, overnight and 24/7 stays.


  • We provide loving, feeding, walking, and play time, during our scheduled visits.  For the energetic pups, we can help burn off that contained energy and wear each other out.  However, we take great care not to overdo it, as some breeds can overheat easily in the Florida sunshine.


  • For the kitties, we have laser pointers, an assortment of toys and our own organically grown catnip!  We love to brush, pet and play with them.


  • Prompt, reliable and honest.


  • Experienced and comfortable with medication administration, pills, diabetic injections and IV therapies.


  • Certified in Pet CPR and First Aid.


  • Licensed * Bonded * Insured * Background Checked * Testimonials


  • Professional and personal references, for your peace of mind.


  • We provide daily text, picture, calls or voice mail messages, so you know your pet(s) is cared for and happy.


  • As an added service, we provide light housekeeping.   Of course, we only do this once all of the fur kids have all been cared for and are napping soundly … (if time permits).


Benefits of Using a Professional Pet Sitter:


Using a professional pet sitter reaps benefits for both pets and pet parents.


Once you experience professional pet care in your home, you'll never worry about being away from your pet again.



Benefits to your pets include:


  • Staying at home in his/her safe, secure environment

  • Being surrounded by familiar sights, smells and sounds

  • Following his/her regular diet and exercise routine

  • Having play time

  • Receiving love and personal attention

  • Maintaining medical treatment, when required

  • Having someone responsible in case of an emergency

  • Eliminating the trauma of travel or an unfamiliar environment

  • Helping to ensure good health (no exposure to other animals' illness or parasites)


Benefits to you include:


  • Knowing that your pet is in caring, loving hands

  • Having the confidence that the pet sitter can deal with other issues - such as grooming, vet visits

  • Eliminating the trauma of having to transport and leave your pet

  • Not having to impose on family, friends or neighbors

  • Feeling your home is more safe & secure (with someone visiting several times a day)


Not all pet sitters are created equal, nor are they all professional.  In hiring a pet sitter, it is important to make sure you have chosen the right person to care for your beloved family member.
