Will my pets and I meet you before service starts?

Yes, I offer a free consultation for us to get to know each other. It’s free (and required) so that your pet and I get a chance to make sure we connect. Contact me today and schedule your free visit.

What are your rates?

My hourly rate is $45.  My 30-minute visits are $25.  I offer discounts on monthly packages and I accept payment by cash, check, or credit card (via Paypal).

Do you work with just dogs?

Dogs generally require the most care, but I provide care for other critters too: from cats to iguanas, birds to hermit crabs, and snakes to chinchillas.  My pet care services generally include me checking out your home, bringing in the mail and paper, setting out the garbage cans, and rotating curtains.  We will discuss the full range of your family and home needs in our first meeting.

What is your service area?

My pooch walking services cover the San Jose area including the nearby cities of Campbell, Los Gatos, Santa Clara, Saratoga, and Sunnyvale.

What happens when I get back from my trip?

Delayed flights and traffic jams happen. We’ll coordinate this ahead of time, but once you’ve safely arrived home you will call, email, or text me and I’ll know it’s time to bring the kids home. I’ll actually assume your trip was somehow delayed until I hear you’ve arrived so that your pets aren’t accidentally unattended.

Are you available for holidays?

The holidays are the busiest time of year for me. Obviously, there’s a limit to the number of families I can serve. If you need pet sitting service over the holidays, please plan to book several months ahead of time.
