Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers in Columbia, SC and Ogden, UT
Make ReservationAsk a question

We are the premier in-your-home pet care provider in Columbia, SC and Ogden, UT. As a kennel alternative, we provide pet sitters and dog walkers to care for your pets while you are away.


After our dogs got sick in a kennel, we investigated the possibility of starting a pet sitting business, but we weren’t happy with the business models of many other pet sitting companies – so we set out to create a boarding and kennel alternative that was unlike any other – and one that incorporates the highest levels of integrity and professionalism. Move ahead a few months, and Away Home & Pet Care was born in Columbia, SC. Our Columbia, SC location services the entire metro Columbia region, including Lexington, Irmo, Cayce, and West Columbia. We have since expanded our business to serve other locations, and are currently operating another location in Ogden, UT which services the entire Ogden metro region, including Roy, Clearfield, Syracuse, Layton, Farmington, West Haven, and Kaysville.

Never used a pet sitter before? We’re confident that once you give us a try, you’ll never use a kennel or boarding facility again. Each of our pet sitters undergoes a rigorous background investigation and attends regular training on various topics such as animal behavior, training and first-aid. All of our sitters are mature, dependable adults who have a passion for animals. We have an upstanding reputation within our community for being trustworthy, reliable and dependable so you can trust us in your home. Allow us to be a pet sitter for your best bud when you’re out of town or provide a lunch break playmate when you’re working long hours. The best part about hiring us over a traditional kennel is that your pet stays at home where they’re most comfortable. No stress for them, and no hassle for you.
