Short Term Vacation Services

Vetted. Local. Reliable.

Going on a vacation or work trip can be stressful enough without worrying about everything back home. What about the pets? The garbage? The mail? The plants?  That’s why we offer pet and concierge services to take care of everything, so you can relax and enjoy your travels.

Whether you have cats, chickens, turtles, snakes, or any other non-typical animal, we’re here to help. We know that every pet has their own unique needs and allowing them to remain in their familiar environment is the best for their well-being.  

Relying on neighbors or family isn’t always an option. They can be busy or simply not be comfortable handling your pets. You also don’t want to let just anyone into your home, as you want to make sure that your property is safe and secure.

That’s where Northern Nest comes in. Our team is made up of experienced and trustworthy professionals who are passionate about caring for your pets and home. We’re fully insured and bonded, so you can have peace of mind knowing that your property is in safe hands. Plus, we’re flexible and can customize our services to meet your unique needs.

Contact Northern Nest today to learn more about our pet and concierge services, and how we can help make your next trip worry-free.

Exact services will be customized to your needs and property. 


Pricing depends on the # of visits, # of animals, how long you’d like us to spend with your pet, ancillary services needed, and where you are located. Please feel free to e-mail [email protected] or call 763-228-4996 for a quote.

We have biosecurity procedures in place like sanitizing boots and hands before and after a visit.  We also try to schedule flock visits on separate days if possible.
