For The Love of Dogs, LLC

One of the first steps to signing up for pet sitting services is the initial consultation with your new pet sitter.  This consultation serves many purposes for both the client and sitter and is important in insuring that you receive the best possible care for your pets while you are away.

The goal of this meeting is for the client to explain all the home and pets routines and make sure both the humans and pets are a good fit.

During this time, the Client Profile, Pet Profile Service Agreement, and Cancellation Policy will be reviewed. It is important that you fill your online profile completely prior to the meeting.  The meet & greet is complimentary if services are contracted.

Meet and Greet:  The consultation is the first opportunity for you and your pets to meet your new pet sitter.  Your pets can begin to familiarize themselves with your sitter. This is the clients opportunity to see how the person they are entrusting with the care of interacts with them.

Review of Routine:  Your pet sitter will want to know all about your pets routine such as when and where they eat, sleep, and what they like to do for fun, as well as walking schedules.  It is great to have this discussion in your home because it allows the client to show the pet sitter where things are and what the routine looks like.

Client Portal: Please make sure that you enter thorough notes and information in your online account.  We refer to your online account while pet sitting for you.  We need your contact information to be correct, veterinary contact info and vaccination dates, and instructions to care for your home and pets.  The client portal is a secure site.  You can also pay online, check your schedule, request service and cancel visits in the client portal.

Privacy Policy:  We will not share your personal information with any other third party for marketing or promotional reasons.  We collect your name, address, phone numbers, email addresses, payment information, and home/pet information for the sole purpose of providing quality pet care and home care services for you.  This information is maintained in a secure online software system.
