Service includes (but, is not limited to): One time or Daily Dog Walks, taken within your neighborhood. Or, if you prefer, for an extra fee we can travel to your favorite hiking path, or local Dog Park, which can include a game of fetch with frisbee or ball. As well, I provide fresh water upon arrival at home and leave the dog with his/her favorite treat (if preferred). Additional services can include: feedings, administering meds, retrieval of mail & or newspaper, adjusting temperature or windows/blinds, etc.

Dog walking services can be requested on a daily/weekly/bi-weekly basis. This service is great for those of you that either have a new or “older” puppy (some of them Never grow up ;*) that needs to take a bathroom break and get some much needed exercise or for those people that choose to live in an apartment/condo with no back yard…or just for fun!

Arizona is known for our hot, hot summers that seem to last most of the year. As such, a general rule to follow is – if it’s too hot for you to walk on the ground, it’s too hot for your dog! Therefore, my hours for dog walking vary based on the month of year.

Dog Walking Hours of Operation (Later hrs available for those of you who are receiving in-home pet sits):

Summer – May 1st-Nov 1st: No Dog Walking as it’s too hot! However, I can let your dog out in back yard
if you do not have a dog door, as well as provide indoor play activities.

All other months: 9 am-6pm

Getting AcquaintedThere is no charge for the initial consult visit required of all new dog walking clients. This refers to our first time meeting as well as pet’s you acquire in the future that you may need me to meet for the first time. Any other visit that is not pertaining to a new pet made to your home will be charged a regular visit fee. This includes getting reacquainted with or receiving special care instructions for an old pet. Or, you may choose to simply call or email the new instructions.

Key pick up/drop offWe will store your key indefinitely, at no additional charge in a secure facility. However, some clients prefer to have their key returned after each completed service. Keys will only be returned in person or thru certified mail for an extra charge of $16.00. However, if you choose to either hide your key each visit in a safe place at no responsibility of Heidi’s Historic Home & Pet Care, or drop the key off at my home, there would be no extra charge.

Over Three PetsAs a general rule, I do not charge extra for additional pets over 3. However, rates will depend on the situation, time needed to care for all pets, and the mileage/distance to your home.  As well, I must be notified of all pets in your household and all will be considered to be under my care during my visits within your home, unless other acceptable care has been provided.
