A free consultation is conducted for all new Clients prior to the start of service. This consult allows me to become familiar with you and your pets as well as to set up your customized pet sitting service. I ask that you have the required forms filled out to the best of your ability prior to our meeting so we can review them togeather. Please allow at least 30 minutes for the initial consultation, which enables me to:

This initial consultation also enables you to meet me and ask any questions you may have about the services provided At the end of the consultation, you will provide me with a key to your home (for pet visits) and make payment arrangements.
There is an addional fee of $10.00 if I have to return for the forms and key.
