Cancellations occurring within two weeks of the booking start day are subject to a 25% cancellation fee, up to a maximum of $100. If the booking is cancelled earlier than two weeks prior to the booking, your deposit will be fully refunded!Keys The pet sitter will require one working key (or access code) prior to the booking beginning, and a secondary means of access (key or code) upon arriving at the home on the first day of the booking. If I do not have an access code, I will arrange an adequate hiding spot for the pet sitter to leave the key when they finish the booking. Alternatively, key pick-ups and drop-offs will add a $15 charge (each way) to my booking fee. Meet and Greet
We offer a complimentary Meet and Greet in order to introduce your chosen pet sitter to you and your pets. This meeting takes place in your home, typically within a couple weeks of your booking, and allows you and your pet sitter to go over all of the needed information for your home and pets. Initial Meet and Greets are complimentary up to a maximum of one hour of time (and charged at $15/half hour afterwards). Meet and Greets are typically scheduled about two weeks prior to your departure, so that all of the details are fresh for the pet sitter. If you would like to arrange to meet your pet sitter earlier than that, we do have a $30 charge for initial meetings, and then will schedule the complimentary Meet and Greet for closer to your departure date.Contract
