FAQs Frequently Asked Questions for Dog Days Kalamazoo
Do you go outside of your Service Area?
YES. On a case by case basis depending on nature of work–mainly for cat clients where arrival time is flexible.
Can I hire you for dog walking 1 or 2 days per week?
YES. Whether you need one day, two days, or more–I can help you out.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Paypal, check, or cash.
When do I pay you?
Before work begins–for both midday dog walking and vacation pet sitting. Midday clients can pay weekly, every two weeks, or monthly. I do not bill out. I did when I first started and had a few people taking 3-5 weeks to pay me after work was completed. Thus, payment ahead of time please.
How soon should I schedule work with you?
The sooner the better. There’s no such thing as booking too early! I can generally fit in last minute stops for midday dog walking clients. However, with vacation pet sitting, please contact me at least 2-3 weeks before your trip. Holidays–I recommend at least 4 weeks ahead of time. There’s only so many hours in the day and so many stops we can do. Most major holidays, I will be booked up weeks early.
Will you always be walking my dog or someone else?
Yes. I’m on every job. I will always be wearing my Dog Days uniform and clearly identifiable.
Who do you recommend if you’re not available?
I know the owners of the following dog walking/pet sitting companies. We are ALL colleagues and NOT competitors. I can recommend them if you’re outside my service area or if I’m booked. Click on the company names for outbound link to their websites:

Where were you a Public Safety Officer?
Loyola University Chicago Campus Police in the late 1990s.
