There is still availability for 2017 Spring Break pet sitting with Dog Days Kalamazoo. I have a few clients scheduled for vacation work in March and April, but there is still room for you. While it is never too early to schedule work with me, it can be too LATE. I always tell people:
“As soon as you know you’re going away and will need pet sitting, be sure to let me know.”
Generally, 4 weeks ahead of time is good. However, with holidays, I advise booking 6-8 weeks in advance. Why so much time? Because holidays (and weekends) tend to fill in quicker than other dog walking/pet sitting work. Plus, there are only so many jobs we can get done in a day.
I do not like to be rushed and I will NOT rush from one job just to get to the next. I would rather not take additional work than to be overbooked. Pet sitting visits are at least 30 minutes long, while midday dog walking (Mon-Fri) is at least 20 minutes long. Dog Days Kalamazoo consists of me working full-time and my part-time dog walker Kimberly Desch helping out.
Remember, I always meet ahead of time to:
- Make sure your pet(s) are fine with me
- Thoroughly go over procedures including any medications needed
- Get all emergency contact information
- Get keys and/or access code to house or apartment
- Sign my Authorization Form allowing us to be in your home and transport pets in an emergency
