i am fond of working on a sliding scale and thus my rates are somewhat negotiable. they can also range a little bit depending upon circumstances, timing and location of the specific job. this is my new basic rate scale – use it as a guideline, not as a final quote. talk to me about your needs and we can go from there to tailor to your individual situation:
$15-$20/half hour visit for midday or anytime daily walks for 1-2 dogs. $5/extra dog. $10 for 2nd walk in same day. (so $25-30/day for 2 walks per day)
dog sitting while you’re away: (in your home)
$25-$30/day for 1-2 walks/visits to your home for 1-2 dogs + feeding/watering/medication. ($5/extra dog or plus cats.)
$30-$40/day for 3-4 walks/visits to your home for 1-2 dogs + feeding/watering/medication. ($5/extra dog or plus cats.)
$40-$50/night for overnight stays in your home for 1-2 dogs. ($5/extra dog or plus cats.)
no dog boarding is available at this time.
cat sitting while you’re away: (in your home)
$15-$20/visit for 1-3 cats. feeding/watering/medications/litter scooping.
$20-$25/visit for 4+ cats. feeding/watering/medications/litter scooping.
no cat boarding is available at this time.
i can certainly sit for other pets you might have, but you might need to school me on their needs. thus far i have cared for fish, turtles and guinea pigs, and i am not averse to caring for other critters. i like ‘em all!
contact me and tell me your circumstances and we can figure out something that’s affordable to you and fair to me.
however, no boarding of any animals is available at this time.
generally speaking, there will be a $5/day surcharge for holiday bookings (i.e. thanksgiving week, christmas/new year’s holidays, 4th of july weekend, etc.).
hurricane season/evacuation disclaimer:
in general, i cannot take responsibility for evacuating your pet(s) should a mandatory evacuation be called for while you are away. i advise you have an evacuation plan with a family member, friend or other pet caregiver; i am happy to coordinate with them should the situation arise. please be advised of this policy from june 1st through november 30th.
