Q. If I’m interested in your services, what should I do?
A. First, you should check out my website! If I’m right for your pet(s), then please call, text or email me & we’ll discuss your needs & set up your FREE Meet & Greet consultation! Then, if needed, we can schedule a practice visit to see how your pet does for their first time with me! And after that, just call me when you need me:)
Q. What is the “Meet & Greet”?
A. It is a time we plan to meet, normally I like to meet you & your pet(s) at your house! I’ll ask a series of questions about you & your pet. I also will show you my insurance certificate, background check & other credential. It usually takes about 30 minutes.
Q. Do you have Terms & Conditions? Will there be a contract?
A. Yes, we will sign a contract during our Meet & Greet!
Q. What paperwork is needed during our “Meet & Greet”?
A. Normally I would like to see that your pet is up-to-date with their shots (mainly rabies), licensed, & also I will need your pet’s basic vet info for documentation & records.
Q. What type of payments do you accept?
A. I take Cash - Checks - Credit Cards (Extra Fees Apply) - Venmo - PayPal
Q. When do I pay?
A. Pet sitting payment will be due the first day I start sitting. As for daily & weekly scheduled walks, your payment is due on the last day of the week I walk your pup! Unless you bought a package prior!
Q. Do you charge more money on Holidays?
A. Yes, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Easter & 4th Of July cost double the price of the visit...so a normal $12 Potty Break Visit will cost $24. Other holidays like St. Packricks Day, Labor Day, Halloween etc will be at the normal price.
Q. How do I know I can trust you?
A. This is a very important question & sometimes the reason people don’t get a dog walker! But I’m sure as soon as you meet me, you will feel at ease & instantly know I’m right for your furry family member!! Plus, you’ll know it’s just me coming to your house & not a different inexperienced teenager every time, like a lot of companies do now-a-days! I am very hard working & my reputation is everything to me! Plus, during out Meet & Greet, I will provide you with my background check, DMV Records & as many references as you want to have:)
Q. What if I need a specific day & time?
A. More then likely I can accommodate your needs!! Even in a bind! I am on call 7 days a week, almost all year round...minus my week vacation!
Q. How do I know how each walk/visit went?
A. I send a text with an update on how our visit went & if they did #1, #2 or both:) I also usually take photos & you can request a time stamp of those photos so you know I was there!
Q. What if my pet gets hurt while in your care or you get hurt or what if someone else or someone else’s dog get hurt because of my dog?
A. Kekepania Pet Services is fully insured through Pet Sitters Associates!! So you never have to worry!! I am also fully trained to handle even the most difficult situations! I have over 25 years experience handling dogs & even horses! I also carry a 1st Aid Kit in my care!!
Q. Are your rates low or expensive compared to other dog walkers?
A. That's a good question!! My rates are on the average to high side. I’m definitely not the most expensive but have seen cheaper. However, cheaper dog walkers may not have dog walking insurance or may not be certified for pet CPR!! It also my be a different person each time or a teenager with no experience! So if you are the type of person who wants there own professional pet care specialist, then I’m perfect for you!
Q. What happens if it rains or snows?
A. Most of the time the weather is fine. But when it does rain or snow I’ll be there! I will also dry your Pet off with nice clean towels I bring! In severe weather the walk may be cut short, there will be no refunds or price adjustments but I’ll make up the time on my next visit(s). I will always make sure your pet is taken care of, especially if you are away & out of town!
Q. What if I need to Cancel a visit?
A. Please contact me ASAP!! If you give me at least a 12 hours notice, there is no fee! However, a cancelation with less then 12 hour notice will has a $10 Fee. If I show up to do the scheduled visit & then you cancel, you will still be charged for the visit!
Q. How often should my dog go for a walk & be let out?
A. This all depends on your dog's breed, age, health & weight...but mostly, the average dog should have at least a 20 minute walk 3-4 times a week. But of course I recommend a 45 minute walk 5-6 days a week. This especially goes for families who work & go to school for long periods of time! Your dog(s) need stimulation & affection! Also a dog should never go longer then 8 Hours without being able to relieve themselves! It’s ok to go a little longer then that once in a blue moon but if you are doing this to your fur baby quite frequently, then you need my help ASAP!! And I urgently request that you call me!
Q. What if my dog doesn't really know how to walk on a leash or is a puller?
A. I am very experienced with walking newbies & pullers:) I will help train your dog to walk on a leash the correct way & once they have an idea of how to walk on a leash, I will then teach you how to keep them walking correctly.
Q. How long does it take to teach a dog to walk on a leash?
A. Typically they get the idea after a full continuous week of walking them. However, it takes months for them to behave fully on a leash, without chasing a squirrel or freaking out when they see another dog! This definitely doesn't happen over night but some dogs are easier then others.
Q. Are you a dog trainer?
A. No!! I am not a dog trainer!! I am a dog walker! However, I can help with most situations. I do have experience with training dogs but am not certified. So in extreme cases, I advise finding a professional dog trainer & with the help from both of us your dog will be on the path to becoming a healthy fun & loving companion!!
Q. What if my pet has special needs or has anxiety issues?
A. Obviously please let me know of any special needs, anxiety &/or issues your pet has!! This will help me tremendousl!! I will work with you & your pet to ensure his comfort & saftey level is high!
Q. What if I'm not sure how my dog will act when you come to visit them for the first time?
A. If you have any worry about this please let me know & we can schedule some practice visits. FYI, each practice visit do have a small fee of $10.
Q. Do you have different rules for dogs that are considered “Dangerous Dogs Breeds”?
A. Yes, these breads are treated a little differently & do require at least one practice visit before I start walking them to see if I am able to enter your home without you. Also, my insurance company (Pet Sitters Associates) May treat these breeds differently in an event of a claim! So we must cover all our bases if I am to start walking your dog.
Q. What is considered on your risky dog breed list?
A. Pit Bull/Doberman Pintcher/Huskey/Chow Chow/German Shepard/Boxer/Rottweiler/Wolf Hybrid/Akita/Alaskan Malumutes/Great Dane. There are more specific breeds that are on my list too but the ones I have provided are the most popular ones. If you have any doubt about this or any questions, please let me know your dog’s Breed & we will go from there.
