This is a complementary evaluation held in your home. Your pet(s) and I will meet, interact, and get to know each other. If your required service is Dog Walking, I may take your dog out for a short walk. This will make your dog comfortable and know that it is "OK" to have a lead put on by me and to leave the house together.
When you contact Almost Home Personal Pet Care, Inc. via a phone call or e-mail, I will call you back. In this first conversation, we will review your pet care needs together. If my services and your needs are a good fit, I will schedule a "Meet Your Pet Interview" in your home. You will also have the opportunity to review my Insurance/Bonding certificates and reference lists at the interview.
An industry standard Service Contract will be filled out in your presence that details the per Visit charge, services requested, dates and time-frames of all Visits, and pet care and home care services to be provided. A signed copy of your Contract will be given to you for your records. I will also test your key to be certain that I know how to operate your entry door and any security systems.
For Pet Sitting/Vacation clients, a home care walk-through will be conducted to insure that all of your requested pet and home care needs are understood. For Dog Walking clients, the location of your dog's lead, treats, water bowl, etc... will be reviewed.
To respect the anonymity and security of your home, I have chosen NOT to mark my vehicle with any pet sitter advertising or signage.
All client keys are coded with a Safe-Key code that cannot be identified with your property location.
With your assistance, I will fill out a detailed Pet Profile sheet on your pet(s) which includes such things as Personality, Obedience Cue knowledge, Eating & Exercise Habits, and Health Care Needs, just to name a few.
