Frequently Asked Questions
How does your service work?
Very simply, I have a dog walking app that I use that I start and stop once I arrive at your home, and upon leaving that records walks in a map-like feature or otherwise is used as a timer for my drop-in visit.
While with your pet(s) I will take pictures during the stay to give you a snapshot of what we did, where we went, and any other fun or important things I want to share with you.
At your request, I will check the mail, bring in any packages, open/close blinds or curtains, alternate lights on/off to give the allusion that someone is home every night, and water the plants.
I can also give medications if needed or attend to other medical needs as required and that I am able to perform safely. Fees may apply based on service.
Additionally, I will always tend to the best interests of your pets. Should they be sick or have accidents in the home, I will of course clean those up and ensure you are notified.
Once the visit is complete, I will send you a text message with the map, any photos that were taken, along with an update of how the visit went, if there were any issues, and to share comments on how your fur family is doing. Whether I visit once a day or multiple times a day, you will receive a text message with all of those updates after every visit.
