A Few "Housekeeping" Notes

Geographical Considerations

I will absolutely travel to you anywhere in the US, Canada, Europe, and Latin America! I speak fluent Spanish, and love to put that into practice!


That said, at the moment, many of my clients are on the West Coast of the US, Florida, or Spain/Portugal. So, the more advance notice you can give me, the better chance I'll be able to accommodate you . . . planning 4 - 6 months out is ideal.  But it's always worth asking . . . sometimes I have gaps in my schedule that I'd love to fill!  For those sits where I need to fly, a week's minimum sit is required. For out-of-the-county assignments, I'll gladly sit for two weeks or more.  


Once I commit to a sit in an area, I immediately look to "sandwich" it with others within 200-300 miles or so - I've found that works well in being able to enjoy a segment of the country or world!

For our mutual safety and assurance, I will ask that we conduct a Zoom call when discussing particulars of your sit.  I find it is a great way for us to  introduce ourselves and any pets. 



I arrange my travel and sit schedules, and you, your vacation schedule, relying on our agreed upon plans.  I've found the following to be  mutually beneficial:

*  20% non-refundable deposit upon agreement;

*  another 50% upon my arrival;

*  and remaining 30% upon completion of the sit.

In the event you are delayed by a day or more, per-day rates will apply, along with fees to cover any necessary flight or other alternations on my part.

Good Faith

One of the reasons I love home sitting, is that I have met the nicest people. I always operate in good faith, and assume others do as well.  It's what makes the world go round!  I've never had to cancel a pre-arranged sit, but in the very unlikely event that would happen, I would refund your deposit and vigorously attempt to find a quality replacement for you.  I have a wealth of wonderful, smart and caring friends, who sometimes tell me "I want your life!" ... such an instance would be their chance!!



Generally, the sits unfold as so:

*"Get-Acquainted" visit or Zoom Call to chat, "meet" pets, and establish beginning/end dates/timing and particulars;

*Send and return of Price Quote, to secure dates on our calendars;

*Forward my "Information Sheet" for you to complete, with pet and home preferences and particulars to leave as a reference;

*Confirmation and Update calls/texts at least two weeks out and more frequently as needed;

*Day of . . . either an in-person hand-off or arrangements for entry..

*I send texts/photos of pets during my stay to keep you updated and confident they are being well cared for!  I welcome check-ins from you as well,  but if you simply want to relax and enjoy your time away, I've got you covered!

*Debrief calls/texts prior to leaving to ensure a safe/smooth transition back . . especially in case of potential plane delays!


NOTE:  I will not leave a sit with pets until it is a sure thing that you or someone else will be there to relieve me..
