The initial meeting is a free consultation which allows me to collect all the information about your pet/s so that I am able to fulfill the requirements of the service you have selected. This is an important aspect as all pets are unique and have differing needs and no service will be carried out without this meeting. In addition to collecting any information, it also allows me to meet your pet and for you to meet me to ensure that you are happy for me to care for your family member.
What to expect....
Dog Walking/Puppy Care
These meetings tend to take 30-40 minutes in your home. I will need to collect information about their health, activity levels, and behaviour towards people/dogs/other animals. It will allow me to see where any equipment (toys, leads etc) are left, and where the dog is left during the day.
Cat Sitting/Small Animals
These meetings tend to take 20-30 minutes in your home. I will need to collect information about their health, activity levels, and behaviour. It will allow me to see where any equipment (toys, food, litter etc) are left, and where the cat has access.
Dog Boarding/Dog Day Care
These meetings tend to take 30-40 minutes out on a dog walk. This allows our dogs to socialise on neutral ground rather than a strange enclosed space which may make them feel insecure and affect their behaviour. In addition to the information that would be provided for Dog Walking/Puppy Care, I will require their eating and sleeping habits. Most importantly, these meetings will give your dog/s a chance to meet my dogs to ensure they get along.
Owners are invited to visit my home either after the walk or at another time so they can see where their dog/s will stay. It will also allow your dog/s to explore the sights and smells of my home to try and gain some familarity.
Please try to get in contact at least one week before any service is required so that we are able to arrange a meeting at a mutually convenient time.
Once these meetings are complete, you can have time to decide whether you wish to proceed with any service.
