GENERAL INFORMATION, FEES & POLICIES
Pet Care Consult: Before first-time service is established, we require an in-home pet care consultation with potential new clients and their pet(s). The consultation is free-of-charge and allows us the opportunity to get acquainted with you and your pet(s). Forms will also be filled out and policies reviewed.
Service Hours: Midday dog walking services are offered Monday through Friday between 11:00AM – 4:00PM.
Service Timeframes: We ask for a two-hour flexible window to complete each walk. This helps with our daily scheduling where both time and location are factors when accommodating all of our clients.
