  • FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


    Do you have the facility to board our dog and/or cat ?
    Sorry, we do not operate a kennel / cattery to host your Pets.
    We usually visit your home to take care of your Pets, e.g. take your Dog out for walks.
    Only on special cases will we consider hosting a Pet at our home for a short period.
    Typically, they are cats and (very) small dogs that are friendly with our kitties.

    Will you Pet Sit for us if we are not in Birch Bay or Semiahmoo (Blaine, WA) ?
    Usually, our clients are within 5 miles, or less than a 10 minute drive away from us.
    If you are outside of this area, and prefer not to pay for additional travel times
    we may be able to refer you to other Pet Sitters in your area.
    On occasions, our current clients have asked us to tend to their pet(s)
    at their winter homes (in CA/AZ) as "one-time" jobs.

    I'm looking to consider you as a Pet Sitter for my Pet(s). How do I start ?
    First, we'd like to know more about your needs and expectations.
    We want to know your location, when you need our Services,
    what Pet(s) you have, and the services needed.
    Then, we'd schedule a "Meet & Greet" to visit your Pet(s) at your home.
    This is your opportunity to determine if we are suitable, and
    for us to determine if we will be able to fulfill your Pet Sitting needs.
    If all goes well for both parties, we will sign a "Service Agreement" with you
    and we will prepare a Pet Sitting Checklist (and notes), to make sure we
    have all the information necessary to meet your Pet Sitting needs.

    Can you stay overnight with our Pet(s) as well ? and what is the charge ?
    Yes, we can do sleep-overs. They are usually booked and charged as 2 Visits per night.
    Sleep-Over Visit fees may be reduced for our regular clients who book
    as least three (other) Visits a day for more than 5 consecutive days.

    How do I make a reservation for your Pet Sitting services ?
    1. Contact us to check our availability for the dates you need our services.
    Specify the date(s) and time(s) that you would like us to visit your Pet(s).
    2. We will advise whether we are available on the dates and times for the Visits.
    3. Contact us to book the Visits, e.g. after you have confirmed your travel plans.
    4. We will confirm your bookings (if the times requested are still available on our calendar).

    Can you also take care of non-Pet matters at the same time ?
    Yes, let us know your needs in advance, while you are arranging the reservations.
    We can usually take care of small tasks like picking up the mail/deliveries and newspaper, checking and watering indoor plants, filling up bird feeders, etc. The fee may be waived.
    We can also provide certain concierge services, like Driver Services to nearby airports,
    picking up pet food/supplies, etc. Such services are charged on a time and distance basis.

    Can you tell me more about your Driver Services ?
    Driver Services are provided primarily so you won't have to park
    your car at the airport when you leave town.

    When you are leaving, we ride (in your car) to the airport with you.
    Then, we drive your car back to your home and park it in your garage.

    When you return, we drive your car to pick you up at the airport.
    And, we ride (in your car) back to your home with you.

    Driver Services are provided subject to our availability. They must be
    booked in advanced. Driver Services are usually provided during daylight
    hours to nearby airports like Bellingham, Abbotsford, Vancouver and
    Seattle. The rates are doubled for service between 10 pm and 6 am.

    You provide us with your car registration and insurance, and a written
    letter of consent for us to drive your car to/from an airport, and across
    the border if applicable. Everyone going in Canada must have NEXUS.

    Can you use your car to bring us to the airport, or pick us up at the airport ?
    Yes, under certain circumstances (as we are not really a taxi/Uber service),
    and only if your luggages, etc., can fit in our (small) car. We will waive the
    mileage charges if we are taking care of your pet(s) while you are away.

    How far in advance can I make a booking ?
    We prefer to take bookings for any of our Services at least a week or more in
    advance. You should make your bookings as early as you can, for best availability.
    We have clients who would even book months in advance, as per their trip schedule.

    Can you take "last minute" requests for Pet Sitting services ?
    Sometimes, but it will depend on our availability.
    Since we schedule our personal times around confirmed bookings, we will try
    our best, but we are usually NOT good at accommodating "last minute" requests.

    Can I change or cancel my confirmed bookings later ?
    Yes. We will try to accommodate your request for minor changes to the time(s)
    of Visit(s) and/or any additional Visits, subject to our availability.

    Why do you still charge for canceling any booked Visits ?
    When we confirm a booking with you, we are committing to you that
    we will take care of your Pet(s) on those booked dates and times.
    When your booking is confirmed, you are committing to pay for the booked Visits
    and our assurance that we will not cancel your confirmed bookings unilaterally.

    When do we pay you for your services ?
    You can leave your payment (e.g. a check) for us to pick up on our first Visit.
    Or, we will leave you a note at the end of the job,
    and arrange to stop by your place to pick up your payment.
