Will you need to see proof of vaccination for my pets?
We do not require you to show us proof of vaccination. It is best to inform us of any vaccination deficiencies, and we will take necessary precautions. However, we are not liable for pets that become ill due to exposure to something that could be prevented by a standard vaccination.
What special steps do you take with a shy cat that hides all the time?
Many cats are shy, especially with new people. If your cat hides, we will ask you to show us the favorite hiding places. We will search your house for your cat to make sure he is only hiding and not injured. Even if your cat hides, we will spend the full visit time at your house. Often a cat that hides on the first visit will come out to visit and get attention on the second visit. Some cats hide very well. As a result, we may not be able to find them. When this happens, we will use other evidence to ascertain that your cat is doing well. Evidence such as seeing if food is being eaten and the litter box is being used.
Can you take my dog to the local dog park or a local trail?
Yes, we can arrange for outings to a local dog park or other off-leash areas. We will only allow your dog to be off leash where it is legally permitted. Even though your dog is allowed to be off leash, we always use appropriate judgement. Due to the additional liability of letting your dog run off leash, we ask that you sign a permission and waiver form. Let us know that you are interested in this option and we will go over everything with you.
We have a number of special policies for major holidays, as it is such a busy time for us. When you make your reservation, we will inform you of the details of our special policies. Usually, the policies include a non-refundable deposit to hold your reservation. Our normal holidays fees are $10 extra each visit plus the cost of the visit.
When you hire a pet sitter to come into your home, your pet will be in the environment it knows best and feels most comfortable in. Also, when your pet is at home being cared for by a pet sitter, they aren't exposed to unknown animals and sounds that can be traumatic as they would in a kennel.
