Don’t Skip This

The best way to contact me is to use the form in the footer. Emails are essential components of my fail-safe scheme to never, ever forget anybody.

Before we meet

  • Please allow 30–60 minutes for the introductory consultation depending on how many pets you have and the level of detail for their care. In the meantime, feel free to review the service contract.
  • Be prepared to give me a set of tested keys (and fob where applicable). Key and fob pickup any time after the initial consultation will incur a charge of $15.
  • Payment can be cash or check made payable to Center City Pets. Payments for future visits are required on or before the first scheduled service date.
  • Confirm that you live in my service area.

Holiday rates

An additional $5 per visit will be charged for the following national holidays:

  • New Year’s Eve Day and New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Fourth of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day

Rush bookings, late night visits, picking up supplies

  • The less notice I get the harder it is to create holes in a schedule with too little room for holes. Services booked less than 12 hours in advance incur an additional fee of $10.
  • Until there is a steep drop in the crime rate, dog walks requested and accommodated after 8pm will cost $10 extra.
  • The fee for picking up pet supplies is $20 in addition to the cost of the supplies.

Additional pet sitting consultation

May be required should you move to a new residence, you’ve made an addition to your family, or you’ve suspended dog walk service for more than 45 days. Fee is $25.

Garden watering

Fee is based on size of garden and availability of garden hose. This per session charge starts at $15 and is in addition to the visit fee.

Other services

Additional fees may be charged for very large or difficult-to-handle pets, for services rendered outside service area, for administering medication to temperamental pets, for watering large numbers of house plants, or for other requested services that are time consuming.
