Pet Safety: We will not provide service unless we know that the fur babies in our care will not be left without sufficient food, water, and potty breaks for a period of time that exceeds what is necessary to insure a safe, pleasant and healthy experience for your fur baby. 
 
For dogs, this means you must book sufficient visits to insure that they can go outside to potty and be given fresh water at least every 6-8 hours (at the longest), depending upon the pet.  We reserve the right to add visits to further reduce the time your dog is left unattended without access to go potty outside, if the pet is repeatedly unable to accommodate the schedule you have chosen. For example, if you are gone the entire day and evening, you need to book at least one visit in the morning, one mid-day, and one at night.  If you have a doggy door and can provide sufficient water for your dog to last the day, then this policy does not apply.  Regardless of whether or not you have a doggy though, you must book at least one visit a day for us to provide food, water and check on your fur baby.
 
For cats, we require you book sufficient visits to insure that they can receive food, water and have their litter box cleaned at least every other day.  This policy applies even if you have an automatic feeding or watering system, because we must still check on your fur baby to insure their health and safety during your absence.
 
New Appointments: You can request a new appointment using your online account by logging in and scheduling anytime up to 24 hours prior to the start of service. If it's already past that time, please contact us.  
 
Cancellations: You can cancel an appointment through your online account prior to 24 hours before service. If its already after that, please contact us if you need to cancel.
 
Recurring Schedules: These are automatically created in our system two weeks in advance. An invoice for these types of appointments will be sent to the email address listed in your account. Please let us know of any known dates you won't need us, so we may adjust them in our system. If you would prefer, you may also go into the system and update your own appointment at this time.
 
Holidays: We try to staff to accommodate your needs, but we accept appointments on a first-come-first-service basis, so please book with us for holidays as early as possible. If you are on a recurring schedule, we will assume you need us on a holiday, unless directed otherwise.
 
Discounts: We offer regular discounts to Clients who are members of various groups (see  Services & Rates).  We also offer a weekly discount to clients for whom we complete at least one visit on 4 or more days within a given week. Discounts cannot be combined with each other (they are not additive). This policy applies to all discounts of all types.  For example, the following services are NOT eligible for discounts: Overnights, Daycare, Nail Trimming, additional Consultations, Poop Scooping, Pet Taxi Service, holiday surcharges, and taxes.
 
Overnights: We are pleased to offer overnight stays on a first come, first served basis.  We request owners with homes equipped with indoor cameras to disable or block them during overnight stays to respect the privacy of the sitter. If you have questions concerning this policy, please discuss it with Cynthia. Overnight stays begin approximately at 10pm and end approximately at 6am.  These times may vary somewhat based on the sitter's schedule. 
Visiting Hours: All visits are scheduled within one of five time periods during the day. This allows us the flexibility to deal with any unexpected events, yet still get to all pets on a timely basis. Time blocks are approximate.
