Meet n' Greet
Our first meeting is a casual get together for us to get to know each other and talk about your pets and their daily routine. Initial meet is free. Subsequent visits are charged at regular rates.
Please allow time for a walk as needed, and have a key or entry instructions ready, otherwise a travel fee may apply for pickup and return of your key.
For the safety of your pets, keys are not left in the home after service as there would be no way to provide care if you're unable to return home as scheduled.
For care in our home, please be sure your pup has a potty break and is brought in on leash. Thank you.
Required items include a leash, collar or harness with current ID, cleaning supplies and any items needed for the care of your pets and home. Please have medical records available, as well as a crate if possible, in case of emergency.
Food, treats, and toys (with few exceptions) are only given with supervision. Please bring your dog's favorite bowls, bed and/or crate for care in our home.
Services include consultations, in-home visits, hotel/vacation rental stays, extended daytime stays, overnight stays, vacation care, special occasion pet nanny, and on-call care for families with pets.
On-call care can include pre and post pregnancy, illness, surgery, caring for a loved one, long work hours or delay keeping you from home. Please give as much notice as possible.
If there's something that you want me to do, please ask. I'll do what I can to make it happen.
Research, locator and referral service for everything related to pets, pet-friendly lodging, recommendations, missing pet awareness/assistance, service dog awareness, nutrition, online shopping and more.
