Billing & Payment Policies:

Dog Walking:  Monthly billing is available for regular dog walking clients. Payment is due on the 1st or 15th of the month. Dogs will have a secure space in a group for the month that has already been paid for. I accept cash, checks or money orders.

Pet Visit(s):  Payment is required the day the service is rendered.

There is a $10 consultation visit fee which is non-refundable.  If I am hired, the fee will be taken off first service. 


Service Agreement:

I require all clients to sign a Service contract so that all polices and procedures are understood and agreed to as well as giving me permission to care for your dog and to enter your home.  An interview and contract form must be filled out for each individula pet.


Key Exchange for Dog Walking:

I ask that clients give a key to me at the initial interview, I will be insured and bonded. I will keep your house key and entry codes in a secure location. 


Pet Tag Identification & Dog License:

The best thing you can do for your pet is to have identification on them in case they get lost. I require that all dogs have identification with a name and phone number. If you are unable to provide a tag or if you will be unreachable during your trip I can provide one for you with my name and phone number as a contact. A dog license and microchipping is also recommended.


Dog Policies:

Sociable and friendly dogs only for group walking.

Dogs must have good voice recall and be able to be allowed off-leash.

Dogs over 6 months must be spayed or neutered.

Dogs must have identification tags and/or a dog license.

Must be up to date on vaccinations such as Bordetella.

Currently on a flea and tick program such as Advantage.

I require that all dogs that I walk have basic obedience training to keep walks fun and safe. I will continue to work on your dogs training during walks
