Complimentary* Consultation

If you are a first time client, we will personally meet with you and your pets in your home during a free initial consultation that will generally last 30-90 minutes. During this meeting, we will go over your pets’ daily routine, feeding regimen, medications, and any special needs your pets may have. You will help us determine schedules for pet feeding and walking and we will have an opportunity to interact with your pets so that they are familiar with us before the initial pet sitting/walking visit.

Please be prepared to entrust us with two copies of all keys needed to access your house and/or barns at this visit: one will stay with Joanna, and one will be kept in a secure location in case of an emergency or loss of the primary key. Keys are coded with the initials or partial names of one or more of your pets, and will not be traceable back to your home.

This initial consultation is REQUIRED for all new clients, so please contact us well in advance of your needs to insure availability for the dates you need and ample time for scheduling the consultation.

*If less than 7 days notice is given for requested dates by a new client or if additional consultations are necessary when less than 6 months have elapsed between bookings, a consultation fee of $20 may apply at Woof to Hoof’s discretion.

Pet Sitting in your Home

This service is handy when you go on vacation or otherwise will be absent during your pets’ normal feeding time. These visits are also great if you work long hours and your pet needs a midday potty break! Visits generally last 20-30 minutes, but we emphasize quality over quantity and often spend more time when available to give your pet extra love and attention.

$20/visit, <30 minutes, mileage may apply.
