SERVICES & RATES

VACATION AT SITTER’S HOME

$30/20/day 1st/2nd dog < ~26 lb; $35/$25/day spring break week and holiday weekends

Small dogs can vacation at pet sitter's home.  Pet sitter will maintain pet's regular schedule as much as possible while providing attention, walks, and playtime in fenced yard (weather permitting).  A pre-visit is required to determine if this is a good fit for both your pet and sitter's pets and so that your pet is not left in an unfamiliar place when you leave for vacation.  Availability is limited, as we only take a few dogs at a time, and determined on a case-by-case basis. 

This option is for potty-trained well-behaved house dogs good with other dogs and preferably cats (no young puppies in chewing stage).  It is strongly encouraged to bring a crate for your pet.  While we would never put a dog who would be traumatized into a crate, there will be short periods of time when dogs are unsupervised.  A dog who has a crate and is comfortable staying inside for a short time should use the crate at a sitter's home, at least in the beginning.  On returning visits, well behaved dogs may be given run of the house, but this should be determined by sitter after a dog has stayed at sitter's home.  If a dog ruins floors, furniture, or belongings, it may result in extra charges. 

Proof of vaccinations is required, and dogs should be current on flea prevention.

Important Terms

Payment is due when service starts.  Any prepaid service not rendered due to notification of early return will be refunded in full.  You may leave payment at the home for sitter to pick up at the first visit. 

 

If your pet or home needs more time than a typical visit, it will be added as needed and billed to you.  Cleanup, watering a few plants, mail pickup, and other average tasks are included in base price, within reason, and as time permits.  More time consuming tasks can be requested and are $4-$6 extra per 15 minutes, depending on the task requested.

 

Two working keys are highly recommended for in home service.  If you request your keys returned at the last visit you will not be able to request additional visits if your return is delayed (unless code access is provided).  Code access is ok instead of keys, but remember sitter may not have access to provide service if there is a lock/battery failure or power outage.  Pickup of the key a second time does incur an additional $5 fee.

 

Late fee is 10% for any payments more than 30 days past due. 

 

Pets must be current on  flea prevention and rabies/routine vaccinations, including bordatella for the boarding option, and should be spayed or neutered.  Up-to-date proof of vaccinations is required for boarding.
