Every pet sitter manages their business differently. This is what you can expect when working with us:
Yes. Please call or text us a day or two before you depart just to confirm there haven't been any changes to your travel plans and pet care needs. Also call or text us when you return. If we don't hear from you, we will reach out to connect. If we cannot reach you, we will continue to visit your pet until you reach us, or we can reach you. This ensures the health and safety of your pet in case you are unexpectedly delayed.

If you are a returning customer and we have your key in our safe, we can almost always accommodate. However, for your convenience and ours, please make reservations as early as possible, especially for holidays. For new clients, it's necessary to contact us several days before your trip so we have time to schedule a new client meeting with you in advance of your departure.
