Our pet sitting service is a tapestry of care, tailored to make every moment special for your furry friends. Whether it’s hourly or overnight, we’re there to ensure their happiness. Our service includes more than the basics of feeding and fresh water; we attentively clean up after their meals and any little messes, maintaining a pristine environment for their comfort. Playtime is abundant, with affectionate brushing or light grooming, ensuring they not only look their best but feel loved and pampered. Dog park visits become exciting excursions, filled with play and exploration. And for those pets that love their walks, we offer delightful strolls, filled with new sights and scents. Every interaction is an opportunity to shower them with love, from gentle petting to engaging games. We care for your pets as our own, infusing every visit with warmth, attentiveness, and a touch of joy.

We believe in the joy of exploration, allowing for plenty of sniffs and new experiences, making every walk enriching for their senses. Group outings to local parks provide socialization and excitement, where they can romp and play to their heart’s content. Dog park visits and attending dog classes are more than just activities; they’re opportunities for your dog to learn, socialize, and thrive. Each walk is designed not just for exercise but for happiness and well-being, ensuring your furry friend returns home with a wag in their tail and a smile in their heart.

Tailored to your dog’s personality and pace, we guide them through lessons that are as joyful as they are educational. With each hour spent, whether as part of our pet sitting service or dedicated training sessions, we focus on reinforcing good habits, gently steering them towards being well-behaved, sociable companions. Your furry friend’s journey to good manners is paved with encouraging words, delightful treats, and plenty of pats, ensuring they learn with a wag and a smile.

Compassionate Pet Sitting

Where Love Meets Expertise – A Journey of Compassion and Commitment

At Daytona Home Watch, we don’t just care for homes; we nurture relationships—with our clients and their beloved pets. Hartmut Pfeifer, the heart and soul behind our services, brings a lifetime of passion and dedication to every pet he encounters. From his formative years in the German military, where he worked closely with watch dogs, to his time in New Mexico and Texas raising and breeding Old English Mastiffs, Hartmut’s journey is a testament to his unwavering commitment to animal welfare.

His bond with each furry companion is palpable, whether it’s reminiscing about Kai, the Belgian Shepherd who graced his home during retirement from the military, or sharing stories of Bandit, the gentle giant who brought joy to countless lives. Bandit, affectionately known as the “King of Cuddle,” was Hartmut’s faithful companion through life’s ups and downs, bringing joy and comfort with his gentle presence. And then there’s Merlin, the rescue Mastiff who found solace in Hartmut’s care after a tumultuous past, blossoming into a happy and confident companion.

These experiences and many more have honed Hartmut’s skills in pet care, training, and companionship. His understanding of animal behavior, training, and, most importantly, love, lays the foundation for the exceptional service offered by Daytona Home Watch. Through every wag of a tail and every comforting cuddle, Hartmut’s connection with pets transcends the ordinary. It’s this deep-rooted empathy and understanding that form the foundation of our pet sitting services.

When you choose Daytona Home Watch, you’re not just inviting someone to care for your pets; you’re welcoming a trusted friend who will treat them with the same love and devotion as their own.
