FAQs

What is the pick-up time range?


On PetPocketbook, where clients can book a service, there is a pick-up time range listed.  We will always try to arrive for pick-up at the same time, however, on occasion, there may be delays.

Do you offer discounts for boarding?

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a discount for boarding over multiple weeks.  Our boarding services include two one-hour walks daily and each day requires the same amount of time and resources to care for your furry family member.

 

How far in advance do I need to book a walk?


Current clients can schedule walks for the upcoming week by 7 pm on Sundays. Any last-minute requests (48 hours in advance) are subject to a $5 booking fee. We will try our best to accommodate late requests, but cannot guarantee it. For new clients, we cannot accommodate walks requested without a meet-and-greet.

We are pet sitting another dog, can you walk this dog?


Unfortunately, we are unable to add another dog to the scheduled walk.  Our client onboarding process includes getting up-to-date medical records and having a meet-and-greet to understand the dog's temperament and personality.  There is no exception for temporary pet sitting situations.

How far in advance do I need to book for boarding?


If it's around or on a holiday, 2-3 months is an ideal time to book a boarding service because of limited availability.  For any other time, a couple of weeks in advance is recommended.
