Solution Graphics

Payment is due on or before the beginning of service. First time customers, pay at the "Meet & Greet". There are NO refunds for early returns. There will be a $35.00 fee on all returned checks.

Hours of Service

A specific time of arrival is not guaranteed. I will ask what your preferred time is; however, I work alone, and I cannot guarantee a specific time of arrival to your home. Pets that are on medication get first priority. I allow a 30 minutes interval of time for arriving to each client's home. This constraint is in place to allow for the care of unavoidable circumstances that may arise at another client's home and/or difficulty in travel.


  • Vacation AM visits will be some time between 7AM and 9AM
  • Vacation PM/Dinner visits will be some time between 3PM and 5PM
  • Vacation Night visits will be some time between 7PM and 9PM
  • Daily Mid Day dog visits will be some time between 10AM and 3PM
  • There is a minimum of 2 visits for all dogs, crated dogs, a minimum of 3 visits.
  • There will never be more than 12 hours between dog visits.

Cats & Other Critters

Cats & other critters (fish, birds, hamsters, etc.) will be visited at approximately the same time each day sometime between 10AM and 4PM depending on my schedule, location of other jobs and weather conditions.


If you need to cancel a scheduled vacation visit, please do so as early as possible (a week at least). I totally understand if something unexpected comes up & you have to cancel, but, I am often forced to refuse a client, due to unavailable time. If you cancel less than 3 days before a scheduled vacation visit of 5 days or more, there is a cancellation fee $50.00. If you need to cancel your Mid-Day Dog walk(s), for any reason, e.g.,vacation & your pet is going with you, or you are a teacher that tracks out , you are still charged a retainer fee of 50% for that time period to hold your spot. I cannot resell time that has been expressly held and reserved for you. If for any reason that I am not available for your Mid-Day Dog walks due to illness or my vacation time, I certainly do NOT expect to be paid.


There will be a $5.00 additional fee ($25.00) per Each Visit on the following holidays: 

  • New Years Eve
  • New Years Day
  • Easter Sunday
  • Mothers Day
  • Fathers Day
  • Memorial Day
  • 4th of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Eve
  • Christmas Day
