New hours & what that means to you:
What if I already have confirmed visits scheduled for after July 1?
Don’t worry, we would never leave you in a bind! Any pet sitting visits that are already scheduled will be honored!
Can I still use you when we travel or have long days?
What about my cat or other small critters that you care for?
We look forward to caring for your kitty and other small critters within our new hours of 9-4p.
But we love the team, how will we ever find someone else?!
That’s so sweet, thank you! No worries, we’ve already vetted a few pet care providers in the area that are happy to visit your household outside of our 9-4p hours. So we still get to see your fur family, and their circle will expand even more!
How do I sign my dog up for Doggy PlayDating?
Fill out their application. It’s pretty detailed- we want to be positive we are being good matchmakers! So be sure to set aside 10 or so minutes to complete it. Also, fill this out for all your dogs looking to date in your household. They can go on separate dates or if we find the right match, there could be a trio date!
What is the process (get on the schedule, multiple visits before pairing attempt)
First you fill out the application, then we set up your pooch on a recurring schedule to establish the ideal visit times and days. Then, if we don’t already know your dog well, we will do multiple visits with just them so we can start building a relationship and understanding their personality a bit more. Once we feel confident that we understand your pup, we find them the perfect match based on their application info, our assessment of them, location and when you would like the visits to be! Once a match is made, each dog will have their own Pet Care Specialist (PCS) for the introduction and possible for 1-2 additional visits to be sure the dogs are 100% happy with their PlayDating set up. Once the pair is established then just one PCS will care for both dogs.
How long is the playdate?
Playdates can be 45, 60, or 90 minutes
Where do they go?
That really depends on the dogs and what is best for them. We might pick them up and take them on a hike, hang out in one of the dog’s fenced in yards, or go on a walk in the neighborhood. We are also looking into renting SniffSpots for those dog pairs without a fenced yard (an additional cost to cover the rental).
How many dogs at a playdate?
This service is just for 2 dogs from separate households. If you would like your pup to hang out with a larger group, we recommend our pack hikes! These consist of 3-6 dogs together hiking on a local trail. We limit our Pet Care Specialists to 2 households to ensure all the dogs have plenty of individual attention and if anyone is feeling cranky, it’s easy to separate!
