Services & Fees

What Makes for Happy Animals

We charge based on time blocks and there is no additional charge for extra animals. We can help you choose the right time block based on what services you would like your pets to have. We offer midday walks between 9am and 6pm, along with morning and evening feeding/walking visits, and vacation visits (3–4 visits per day) along with overnight stays.

During these time blocks, based on your instructions, Walking Wetnoses’ pet care providers can:

  • Feed your pets
  • Check for accidents
  • Refresh water bowls
  • Clean litterpans
  • Walk your dogs
  • Let dogs into yard
  • Have play time or petting time
  • Give medications

During vacation visits, we can also:

  • Bring in mail and packages
  • Take out garbage or bring it in
  • Water plants
  • Turn lights off and on

We will log our visits, times, activities, whether your fur kid went #1 and/or #2, and whether anything unusual happened. We’ll call or text you if anything happens that we think might need your immediate attention (injury or pet acting ill) or that you might need to know about before you arrive home.

Visits for adult dogs are scheduled within a 2-3 hour time window (for example, between 12 – 2 pm) to allow for travel time between clients and to ensure the walkers and sitters can spend the allotted time with each client. For puppies (less than 12 months old), we will schedule within a one hour window to ensure they get a potty break when they need it.

*If your pet has other special needs, please discuss with us – we have experience caring for senior pets, blind and/or deaf pets, and pets recovering from injuries or surgeries.

Payments & Invoicing

Payments are accepted via checks or PayPal (You do not need a PayPal account to pay through PayPal.) Credit cards are only accepted through PayPal. No cash please.

Invoices for regularly scheduled services are sent every other week. Invoices for vacation visits or irregularly scheduled services are sent immediately upon completion of the vacation services. All invoices are due upon receipt.

Cash gratuities for your walkers or pet sitters may be left for your regular sitter, or you may request to have a gratuity added to an invoice. All gratuities go directly to the walker or sitter.
