Because of the unpredictability of pets, traffic, and other things, we ask our clients for their preferred time, as well as a 2-3 hour time window for each visit. We cannot guarantee a specific time for visits, although we always strive to arrive at our client’s preferred time. The exception to this time window is for animals that have time-sensitive medication issues and special needs or puppies that are still working on potty training. We do not necessarily end a visit simply because the allotted time for that visit is up. We leave only when the pets’ needs have been met. This can often cause us to run behind schedule, but we know that our clients appreciate our thorough attentiveness to their babies.
Caroline Kellam is the co-owner of PAWSitive Strides Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Services and a huge animal lover. She and her husband, Brian, share their home with six (yes, you read it right, six!) rescued dogs and three cockatiels (one of which was found on a neighbor's roof). She would love to have a cat or two as well, but the dogs (and the birds) will simply not stand for it.
