DOGS
Services & Rates

Cash, Checks, PayPal (+2.99% fee), and Zelle are accepted.


An initial consultation to meet you and your pet(s) is FREE

I will provide whatever you need in terms of References so that you can feel absolutely comfortable choosing me!

NOTE: I am ALSO available EVENINGS and WEEKENDS, plus most HOLIDAYS for an extra charge.

ALSO -- After ANY visit, I can send a short text or email about our time together that day, as well as occasional photos. Sometimes I send links to videos that I post on my Facebook page.

PLUS (with your approval) I will give your dog(s) treats at the end of my visit. I always carry low-cal, high-quality-ingredient, made-in-the-USA dog treats. But, let me know if your pet has allergies or sensitivities and then I can use the treats you buy, instead. 

I think the main thing I want you to understand is that I try to make my visits a lot of FUN!

With dogs, especially, we seem to develop individual routines for our greetings when I arrive and for the games we play and for how I give their treats at the end. I have as much fun as they do! 

----------------------

NOTE:

At the present time, I do not offer overnight dog sitting
(where I sleep in your home).

I also am not able to offer boarding in my own home. 

Alternatively (and ONLY if you live within 10 min. of my home), I can make up to 3 visits a day -- mid- to later morning, later afternoon or early evening, and late night. (I am a night owl so, unfortunately, I do not make early morning visits.)

----------------------

20-min. Potty/Play Breaks

I can stop by to just let your pup(s) out in your yard for a potty break plus play time, some loving attention, and treats. If it's their meal time, I can also feed them.

* If your yard is not fenced, then we can use leashes and walk around in your yard or a short ways along your street. Hopefully that will be long enough to go potty.

FEES:

1 DOG (off leash, playing in your fenced yard only)

> If you live within 15 min. from my home = $14 per visit

> If you live between 15-30 min. from my home = $19 per visit

ADDITIONAL DOGS

- Playing in your fenced yard ONLY  = $2 more per dog, per visit

- Very Short ON-LEASH walks = $5 more per visit (for only 1 extra dog)

NOTE -- I unfortunately cannot walk 2 dogs at a time on leashes unless they are extremely low key and easy to handle, especially in cold and slippery weather.


30-min. Potty/Play Breaks

I can stop by to just let them out in your yard for a potty and play break, some loving attention, and treats. If it's their meal time, I can also feed them.

* If your yard is not fenced, then we can use leashes and walk around in your yard or a short ways along your street. Hopefully that will be long enough to go potty.

FEES:

1 DOG (off leash, playing in your fenced yard only)

> If you live within 15 min. from my home = $16 per visit

> If you live between 15-30 min. from my home = $21 per visit

ADDITIONAL DOGS

- Playing in your fenced yard ONLY  = $2 more per dog, per visit

- Very short ON-LEASH walks = $5 more per visit (for only 1 extra dog)

NOTE -- I unfortunately cannot walk 2 dogs at a time on leashes unless they are extremely low key and easy to handle, especially in cold and slippery weather.

* IMPORTANT:

In all honesty, I do best with small-to-medium or medium-large dogs that are fairly easy to handle on a leash. However, I also AM able to work with larger dogs that are older or otherwise very calm and trained to be good on a leash.

I would NOT be the choice for dogs that need to really run or walk extremely briskly OR who pull on the leash unless they use something like a gentle leader. If in doubt, we could test it out with a short trial walk, on my initial free visit. 

However, IF they like playing 'fetch' and if you DO have a fenced yard, I can give them a quick work out in decent weather.


Additional Services:

 Medications:

PILLS:  I have had the best luck using pill shooters, pill pockets, or if possible hiding or dissolving them in food.

INSULIN SHOTS: I have only given shots to a cat so far but I assume it's the same for a dog. If the dosage depends on how much your dog eats first, we will need to be able to be in close contact so that I am sure that I am properly gaging the dose. I can text you pictures of their food so you can confirm my estimation.

Extra Time: 

If the time is available in my schedule, you can add 15 minute increments for $5 extra for each increment to the base price.

Extra Tasks (if you are traveling):

NO CHARGE to feed and clean/refill the water bowls, or to take in the mail, water indoor plants, switch up the lights left on when I leave, and/or set the garbage cans out and then back.

Outdoor Watering (if you are traveling): 

I can also possibly water outdoor plants/garden for an extra fee, if desired. I can give you a quote at our initial meeting when I see the extent of what would be required.


* NOTE: 

-- My Location:
I live in Bloomington just south of 494 on 12th Ave. So. (basically, 12th Ave. So. at 82nd Street)

12th Ave. runs north/south parallel with/between Cedar (Hwy. 77) and Portland -- relatively near the Mall of America (to its west), and southwest of the airport.

-- IF you live MORE than 30 min. away from my home, unfortunately, I CANNOT even consider taking the job!


Additional Charges:

Holiday Surcharges: 
There is an additional $10 per VISIT charge on the following days:
New Year's Eve
New Year's Day
Easter
Memorial Day
Independence Day
Labor Day
Thanksgiving Day
Christmas Eve
Christmas Day
.
 
Extra Trips to Pick Up or Drop Off Keys:

We usually make arrangements for the keys at our initial visit.

You may not be comfortable making a decision to hire me until after I get home and email you my references document that includes full contact information for my past and current clients.

In that case, once you make the decision to hire me, we can often figure out a way for you to hide the key(s) on your property where I can pick them up upon arrival, keep with me for the duration of our agreement, then leave for you upon my last visit. (If you have a mailbox that drops mail inside your home, I can drop them into that upon leaving.)

However, if you are not comfortable with that and it's necessary for me to make additional trips back to your house to either pick up or drop off the key(s), I need to charge extra for my time and gas:

$5 per trip if you live within 15 min. of me.

$10 per trip if you live between 15-30 min. from me.
