OUR PROCESS OVERVIEW
Our journey with you and your pet can be broken down into 5 easy steps:
You and your pet can email us and we can talk about your pets needs. At this time we can check availability for dates requested and give you a quote for our services. From here, we can schedule a consultation with Alysha.
We require a one-time consultation scheduled with Alysha prior to use of our services. This meeting provides us with an opportunity to meet both you and your pet. Getting to know you both is extremely important to us as it provides us with information on your pets individual needs. This also gives us a chance to impress your pet, because that is who matters most! Consultations typically take between 30-60 minutes. Please note that Monday through Fridays are free, and that a $30 fee is charged on weekends for the consults. At this time we go over care instructions, paperwork, insurance coverage, schedule and online system directions.
3) Connecting Your Account
At Preferred Pet Sitter, we utilize an online client account system. At the consultation you will be directed to connect your email address and choose a password for your online account. Once connected you can view and update your pets and personal information, confirm/cancel our schedule, view invoices, make payments and leave notes for our sitters. This is also where you request future appointments.
4) The Pet Sit
All pet sitting prices are 'per visit' and include mileage, tax, insurance, feeding/ watering, potty break, playtime, medication administration and socialization (if your pet chooses). Your in home free options are walks, litter box care, mail pickup, plant watering, garbage can bring out and alternating lights. You will receive email updates with a photo included and a report card of your pet's time with us! Payment is due at time of service.
Most of our clients come home to a sleepy friend, as we are an advocate for healthy pets that means lots of playtime! Our goal as your pet sitter is to satisfy your pet and exceed your expectations. If at any time you have questions regarding our time with your pet please feel free to contact us.
"Alysha is an exceptional pet sitter. She has watched my two terrier mixes on multiple occasions -- and I have always been thrilled with the care they receive. Rest assured that your pets will be cared for as though they are family! My puppies will always be happy with Preferred Pet Sitter and I can always be comfortable knowing they are being so well cared for by Alysha and staff."
~Dr. Meghann Kruck, Veterinarian
"We've used Preferred Pet Sitter several times for our 3 cats and love them! They're so attentive to the cat's health and well-being. We feel so comfortable leaving our kitties in their capable hands!"
"We left our dog Griffin in the very capable hands of Preferred Pet Sitter while we were away for nearly a week. This could not have worked out better! He had excellent care and a bunch of fun! We recieved daily texts about how he was doing and returned home to find a detailed "report card" of what he did while we were away. No need for him to leave the comforts of home. HIGHLY recommend!!!"
