VISIT RATES - EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2016: (our rates have not been adjusted for many, many years)
First consideration of charges are by time spent versus a flat visit fee as we’ve done prior. For new customers, we will determine how long a visit will likely take at the initial interview. For existing customers, we will review the time we spend with each pet client and charge accordingly.
Second, consideration of charges will include proximity to where the sitter lives, number of pets, and nature of duties. We will consider things such as dogs that need to be walked separately, administering medications, etc.
Visits for one or 2 dogs 3 or more days per week, on an ongoing basis. (Add $3.00 per dog for third, etc. or if separate walks for 2 or more dogs is requested.)
- 30 minutes - $20
- 45 minutes - $25
just letting dogs into their own yard for a comfort break (no walks); also for taking care of birds
For one or two pets from the same family rate applies to dog walking visits less than 3 days per week on an ongoing basis, in addition to visits conducted while families are away on vacation. (Add $3.00 per dog for third, etc. or if separate walks for 2 or more dogs is requested.)
