We will be very happy to work with you to customize your pet’s visit in order to meet their needs.
❥ Consultations – FREE
We ask that all new clients have a consultation before the first visit. This is in order for us to have a thorough understanding of your pet’s needs before you leave home, while also giving you a chance to meet your pet sitter in person and to ask any necessary questions. Consultations usually last 30 minutes to 1 hour. We will go over important forms and your pet’s routine— including food, medication, and the location of important items. When you choose us as your pet sitter, we will ask for 2 house keys (one for your sitter & one for backup purposes, kept in a locked location) and collect payment for any booked visits. Future visits can later be scheduled by simply contacting us— we are only a text message away.
