  • Time of cancellation is calculated from the first visit back.

  • Cancellation times and policies are the same whether there is a deposit made or not. 

  • We do not issue refunds. Deposits that are credited to your account never expire.


  • Visitors – Please notify us if there will be anyone else entering your house while you are away. This includes family, friends, neighbors, workers, house cleaners, etc.  We will “share pet care duties” with your friend, family member, or another sitter. Please be aware that if this is the agreement, our liability insurance may not cover issues with your home, keys or pets.

Copper's Club Pet Sitting will not be liable for any damages caused by the acts of others in clients’ homes.

Driveways/Walkways – Please consider your pet sitter’s safety by removing any snow, ice, and debris from all walkways and driveways before you leave on your trip. If you are away, please have someone who can plow and shovel your driveway and walkways if bad weather is predicted. Our insurance policy does NOT cover any personal injuries that occur on your property.  

  • Heat/Inclement Weather – Our #1 goal is to keep your pets safe and comfortable while in our care. If it is extremely hot/cold outside, visits and routines will be modified to achieve this. We are aware that certain dog breeds don’t do well in hot temperatures, and they will be strictly limited to the outdoors during bathroom breaks. The same is true for extremely cold/snowy/icy days for all pets.

  • In case of snow, ice, etc., we will do our absolute best to make every scheduled visit on time. We will plan by leaving extra food, water, etc. for all pets before bad weather hits. An email will be sent to you before you leave on your trip if bad weather is predicted while you are gone. It will ask you to speak with your emergency contacts to make sure they are available if needed. We may have to call on them to help if the roads are bad. It’s also a good idea to speak with neighbors close by and leave them a key for emergency use.

*All policies and procedures are subject to change without notice at the discretion of Copper's Club Pet Sitting.

"Caring and Reliable"

What a blessing to have found Trish when my family moved to Collegeville. I was worried that I would never find another pet sitter that loved Rox as much as our pet sitter from our previous home, but I was worrying for no reason! Trish is caring and reliable! I don’t ever worry that Rox and her best bud, Penny are well taken care of and have plenty of attention when we are away! Trish’s personal attention and timely response to any question or concern I may have puts her heads above the rest!

"Great Service"

Trish is great! Takes care of our cats and dogs when we travel. Brings in our mail, waters plants, and also helps reboot remote cameras when needed.

"Kind & Loving"

It is with great pleasure to recommend Copper's Club with highest regards. Trish has been pet sitting for me for more than 3 years and I have nothing but positive things to say. She has never disappointed and, in fact, has gone above and beyond for my pets and myself.
