Frequently Asked Questions: Dog Sitting Glen Iris
Can I drop my dog at your house?
Generally it is better to have your dog in an environment that they are familiar and comfortable with. I do on occasion accept one dog to stay with me and my dog, but prefer to visit your home. Dog sitting at your home helps to reduce their feelings of anxiety and stress. Furthermore, we avoid the risk of your dog not getting along with other dogs, including Hope (my dog). Please let me know if you are considering this option!
How do you charge for dog sitting?
My rates depend on how much time will be required to complete tasks at your home. I can visit your home for 30 minutes or 60 minutes on scheduled days; if you believe that more time is required, please reach out and we can discuss your needs.
Do you care for pets other than dogs?
Of course! In my 10 years of pet sitting experience, I have cared for dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, mice, and birds. If you have an unusual pet, let's have a chat about your pet’s needs!
What other services do you offer?
Does your dog need to stretch their legs outside while you are away? I offer dog walking in and around Glen Iris. Your pet can visit their favorite neighborhood park or just enjoy a quick stroll to use the bathroom.
If your dog has a vet or grooming appointment, I can provide pet transport to and from the venue. I have even driven dogs to a wedding!
If you need overnight dog sitting or for an extended period of time, I also offer house sitting packages. In addition to minding your dogs and pets, I can make sure your house is maintained and in order when you return.
Will I receive updates during dog sitting?
Absolutely! Nothing is better than seeing a photo of your dog feeling loved and happy. I can send updates after my visit to let you know what your pets were up to and any important information that you should know before you get home.
If you have any more questions, feel free to reach out with an email!
I can’t wait to meet your beautiful dog!
What's different about your dog sitting?
There are many dog sitters who provide dog sitting as a hobby. There's of course nothing wrong with using them as they can save you money. However, if you want someone who is accountable, professional, and trained to handle emergencies - it's best to use someone you can trust. As mentioned, I am fully insured and trained to look after your dog. But don't take my word for it - feel free to check out my reviews for some of my happy dog sitting clients!
