Payments & Specials

We accept Personal Checks & Cash only.

For prices of each service, please look under “Services & Rates” tab at top of website page for individual service rates.

How the Fees & Payment Structures Work:

Cage-Free Dog Boarding services: There is no charge for the initial temperament screening, which is required of  all new dog boarding clients. Thereafter a deposit of 50% of the total charge for all boarding services requested is due at the time you pick up your dog from his/her temperament screening, to secure your reservation.  The remaining portion of payment will be due at the time of drop off for boarding. Your deposit is non-refundable should you decide to cancel services with anything less than two weeks notice prior to start date with any reservations made one-two months in advance and 48 hrs notice with any reservations made one-two weeks prior to your start date. This time was specifically reserved for you and not available for other clients or my personal plans I would have had the opportunity to make, had I not reserved the time for you.

Cage-Free Doggie Day Care services: There is no charge for the initial temperament screening, which is required of all new doggie day care clients. Thereafter payments for services can be made either at the end of each service day, week or prior to the start of each month for the entire month ahead. There will be a service change implemented for all cancellations made with less than 24 hrs advance notice. If there is an actual emergency that arises, I would appreciate as much advanced notice as possible, but will forgo a charge depending on the specific situation. Implementing this policy is necessary, as it affects my daily schedule, can determine whether I can add another client if needed and can affect my personal plans as well.

In-Home Pet Sitting: Payment for In-Home Pet Sitting services will either be requested in full at the time of our first initial meeting, or a deposit will be requested of 1/2 your total, with the remaining portion due at the time of your first day of services date. This is done to secure your reservation. This can depend on how far out we schedule our meet and greet from your service start date. Thereafter, for all future pet sitting visits payment can be made upon my first scheduled service/visit to your home by simply leaving payment on a kitchen counter for me, for your convenience. Your deposit is non-refundable should you decide to cancel services with anything less than two weeks notice prior to start date with any reservations made one-two months in advance and 48 hrs notice with any reservations made one-two weeks prior to your start date. This time was specifically reserved for you and not available for other clients or my personal plans I would have had the opportunity to make, had I not reserved the time for you.

If for any reason I must stay extra time at your home that wasn’t by choice, but instead due to pet illness, injury, extensive clean up or due to a problem with your home or any other unforeseen circumstance, then you will be charged the regular rate for that service per 30 minutes. If I deem any extra visits are necessary for the safety and well-being of your pet(s) there will be and extra charge at the regular rate as well and added to your bill, after communication/agreement with you prior. There will be a $25 charge, in addition to visit fee, for the pick up of any needed supplies including food, cat litter, paper towels etc. Please make sure you leave enough food and supplies prior to leaving on your trip.

It is recommended that the client should inform their veterinarian that they are using this pet sitting service and check veterinary policy for payment. All emergency veterinary charges will be the full responsibility of the client. Client will be billed a separate fee of $40/hour by the pet sitter for any emergency trips to the vet.

Daily Dog WalkingPayment for services can be made either at the end of each service day, week or prior to the start of each month for the entire month ahead. There will be a service change implemented for all cancellations made with less than 24 hrs advance notice. If there is an actual emergency that arises, I would appreciate as much advanced notice as possible, but will forgo a charge depending on the specific situation. Implementing this policy is necessary, as it affects my daily schedule, can determine whether I can add another client if needed and can affect my personal plans as well.

 

Holiday’s: It is recommended that you make holiday bookings EARLY. This also goes for school vacation weeks. It is first come, first serve and I can only take a certain number of clients for in-home sits and a maximum of five (5) for doggie day care & boarding. The following holiday’s May have an additional fee of $5.00 per visit, depending on how busy I am for that particular holiday: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, 4th of July and Easter Sunday. Again, a deposit of 1/2 of the total charges is required at the time of booking all major Holidays, including Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Easter & 4th of July vacation sits to hold your reservation; The remainder is due at the start of service. No refunds for early returns, as I have taken that time out of my personal and work schedule for you. There is an insufficient funds returned check fee of $25.

All prices in US dollars and subject to change.
