Service Area

We currently serve the following Georgia cities in Cobb County: Marietta, Kennesaw, and Acworth. We provide services for the Town Center, KSU, Legacy Park areas. Please contact us to verify locations within the Service Area. Additional charges for locations outside Service Area may be assessed at the Initial Consultation. For locations outside the Service Area, please visit the Georgia Network of Professional Pet sitters (GNPP) where you can [Find a Sitter] by Area or Zip Code.

Initial Consultation

Please do not schedule a consultation with us if you are still interviewing other sitters. We want to be the last service you call, because we will be the last service you will ever need!!

NEW CLIENTS: At least two weeks prior to your first visit, an initial consultation will take place in your home. This give you the opportunity to introduce your pets and provide details about what care they will need. You will want to have ready copies of your house keys and sign the service agreement which will detail your pet sitting services. For security purposes, keys are kept in lock boxes and labeled such that they cannot be identified with your address. Once this initial consultation is complete, you will no longer need to complete the consultation in order to make future reservations.

Once your service request has been processed, you will receive a confirmation email showing your service order. If you have any questions about your service order, please contact us immediately.

About one week prior to starting your service order, a follow-up meet and greet at your home may be set up to give you the opportunity to introduce yourself and your pets to the pet sitter who will be completing your service order. Keep in mind your pet sitter may have other clients to serve and you may be busy getting ready for your trip or vacation. During holidays and peak travel times, you may want to arrange your pet care services well in advance.

If you are not receiving confirmation emails, you may need to add our outgoing email address to your address book or your allowed addresses list. Let us know if you have any problems and we will be glad to help.

ARRAY of Services

If you are looking for the BEST pet care services in the area, you have come to the right place! We strive to go above and beyond for our clients. Once you have signed on as our client we are committed to serving you any way we can, even during those family emergencies, knee surgery, selling your home, or even after you have moved and are wanting help finding a new service at your new location. We network with pet care services across the country and internationally.

We plan to be the best in this industry, though it is ever-changing. That commitment doesn’t come easy but we feel it is what our clients, and their pets, deserve. It’s what we would want for our pets too.

Pets of all kinds! We care for them all while you are away on vacation, business travel or any other reason. We can care for your Cat, Dog, Caged Mammals, Caged Birds, Reptile Tank, or Fish Tank. It may be important to note too that we do not discriminate against any species or breed or race of pets. So send all your friends and family to Love Bugs, where their pets are just like members of the family and will be pampered as such. Whether bird or fish or four-legged or tripod, we love them all!

We offer quite an array of services including Pet Sitting — Dog Walking — Cat Sitting (because you know cats are special!) — Overnight Care — Pet Taxi — and other customized care for your home and/or pets. We can also assist with basic training — potty training — leash walking — guest greeting — basic commands — etc.

Pricing

On average our service is $25-30 each visit for regular pet sitting, dog walking, doggie let outs, and cat sitting. We also offer Pet Taxis for $20-35 each. Email us for Overnight Care availability and pricing. We offer FREE pet taxis in the Metro Atlanta area to and from low-cost, high-quality Spay/Neuter Clinics to help reduce the number of unwanted litters in Georgia.

We no longer have a base rate starting at one price, then adding on fees and charges and holiday rates. If you compare to a service that “starts at $15” but then adds for additional pets and then adds for other services, fuel costs, and a holiday charge, you may find yourself paying a lot more.

With Love Bugs service, your rate stays the SAME, all care for your home and pets including any medications or injections and even during holiday for the SAME rate throughout. It is an ALL-INCLUSIVE service EXCLUSIVE to clients of Love Bugs. CALL us today at (404-428-6999) for your customized pricing quote. We can discuss your specific pet care needs, how often visits will be, and the duration of your service.

We are excited that very soon we will be offering FREE exclusive services to our clients that won’t be available anywhere else! Check back soon for details. This may include seminars and training classes exclusively for Love Bugs clients.
