Meet and Greet
This appointment gives us a chance to get to know each other and go over important information about the proper care of your pet and home, and I will answer any questions you may have.
Technology should make our lives easier. That's why I use Scout, a dog walking and pet sitting software built for ultimate convenience. When a meet and greet is booked, I'll send you an activation email for Scout, you fill out your pet's profile, and review and sign the service contract. After the meet and greet, you can request my services via mobile app. That's it! It's that simple.
Check out the following link to see what's included (please note I do not invoice through this app): https://www.scoutforpets.com/features/pet-parents/
I will need to be provided with a copy of your house key when services are agreed upon. Keys are kept in a secure location when not in use and labelled with a code; your personal information is never attached to the key.
I accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, e-transfer, and cash.
