Initial In-Home Consultation 

Meet & Greet, review services and forms, etc. Usually concludes within 30 - 40 minutes.


Dog Walking and Exercising

Regular dog walking hours are 10 AM - 5 PM, M-F. After-hours non-vacation walks (before 10 AM, after 5 PM, or anytime on Saturday or Sunday), when available, have a $5.00 surcharge fee per walk. This surcharge does not apply to vacation drop-ins or walks that part of an overnight stay; see fees for those services below.

Walks are 25 minutes in length.The fee is $16 for one dog and $2 per additional dog.
Dogs are walked individually unless they have a neighborhood "buddy" and both owners request for the dogs to be walked together.
Visits to a local, enclosed park are an alternative to walks.
Customized, detailed notes are left after each visit.
Fresh water is always given daily, as well as treats, if approved.
Feeding at visits is optional (included in fee).

Vacation Drop-In Visits 

Service is generally available seven days/ week and is available on and around all major holidays (see holiday surcharges below).

Paw cat care (feeding, litter scooping/changing, brushing, playing, TLC, meds, etc)
Paw other small animal care (feeding, cage cleaning, and whatever else
is applicable

Visits for cats and other small animals generally occur in the morning, but afternoon and evening visits are usually available and multiple daily visits are an option.

Service includes, but is not limited to, the following (all included in rate*):

Paw plant watering
Paw mail/newspaper collection
Paw trash removal
Paw lights/blinds rotation
Paw medication administration (oral, injection, topical, or any other type)
Paw cleaning of food/litter/plant areas, accidents and other messes

*$5-$10 charge for subcutaneous fluid administration, depending on pet's level of ease

Rate, for 25-30-minute visits:

$18 for first two animals; additional $2 for each animal beyond two (in terms of payment, one "animal" = one cat, one rabbit, one cage of rodents or birds, or one tank of fish or other aquatic animals)

$5 surcharge for every-other-day visits (only available for healthy animals who do not like visitors or who socialize with their animal housemates; for the well-being of social single animals, kittens, geriatric animals, or animals with health conditions, I do not recommend, and therefore do not provide, visits on a less-than-daily basis)

House-Checking Only (when no animals are present) 

Are your animals traveling with you or staying with a friend, or family member? I can still come by and water your plants, rotate your lights and blinds, retrieve - and also forward, for an additional fee - your mail and newspapers, and complete other home care tasks you may have.

Rate: $16 base with possible additional small fee depending on specific needs
