What You'll Get
Left unsupervised, dogs are predisposed to devious behavior such as late-night poker games and duping mailmen into Ponzi schemes. Mitigate puppy pyramid schemes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pet-sitting services from AthensPaws.
AthensPaws founder Stephen Molloy accommodates busy pet owners with house-call services such as dog walking and litter-box cleaning. An alternative to pet boarding, average house calls for a pair of pooches (starting $10, plus $0.50 for every additional mile outside a 5-mile radius of downtown and $0.50 per additional pet) include feeding, medicating, and 10 minutes of play time. Cats appropriate the same attention, plus a litter scoop and lively debate on fixed-rate mortgages.
Extra amenities for tail waggers include teeth and hair brushing ($2 each per day), a leashed walk ($4 per half mile), and a bath ($5); felines can procure a pelt brush ($2 per day) and a litter change for vacations longer than a week ($1.50 each time). Tech-savvy travelers can request a daily text picture or cuneiform etching update of their beloved beast ($0.50 each).
In addition to pet pampering, AthensPaws caregivers offer complimentary household services such as newspaper and mail retrieval, and garbage-can retrieval from the curb.
