Why choose Chico Paws and Claws?

My name is Gary Swietanski and I am a dependable dog walker and pet sitter providing dog day care and boarding services in Chico, California.  I realize you want to be there for your pets 24 hours a day but there are certain times when you just can't.  Let me help you during those times.  I will make sure your pets get the exercise and companionship that you would normally give them.  I can't replace you, but I can make them as happy as possible until you return.

My goal is to provide Chico pet owners with reliable, trustworthy and affordable pet sitting, dog walking and home visit services.  I love animals and want to help you care for your pet in any way that I can. Once you are an established client, I will be there for you.  I attempt to meet all the needs presented by my clients, as varied as they may be. So no matter what you require please call, I will make every effort to provide the pet or home care needs you request.

I am a small, home based business and strive to provide consistent care for my clients.  If you are like most pet lovers, you hate leaving your pets at home during the day while you work or board them at unfamiliar surroundings when you travel.  Chico Paws and Claws will come to your home to care for your pet and we offer dog day care and boarding at our facility for dogs that pass a temperament test (see Policy & Procedures page for more details).
