Doggy Au Pair Service Rates
The following rates are based on dogs that live within the same household (i.e. if a friend wants to include their dog with yours, it is considered a separate client):
1-2 dogs: $60/per 24 hour period (if the day of return is over the 24 hour period, it's $25/hour. If 2 1/2 hours or more over it's the $60 rate for the day)
3-4 dogs: $100/per 24 hour period (if the day of return is over the 24 hour period, it's $40/hour. If 2 1/2 hours or more over, it's the $100 rate for the day)
5-6 dogs: $175/per 24 hour period (if the day of return is over the 24 hour period, it's $60/hour. If 3 hours or more over, it's the $175 rate for the day)
Puppies: We love puppies! While we give all of our fur clients tons of TLC, puppies need even more attention especially when it comes to potty time. Puppies under 6 months old are an additional $10 a night per puppy.
Medicine: If basic pill medicine is needed to be given, I will give as instructed at no additional charge. If medicine administration is more complicated than adding to a meal, it's a $5/per pet/per day charge. I have given everything from pills to insulin shots. I do not have a nursing background but follow instructions and will put alarms in my phone to make sure I do not miss a dose. For things like anal express, if given specific instruction, I will do this. It will be an additional $5/per pet/per day charge.
Adding Cats into the mix: $10/per 24 hour period in addition to the dog charge for the first cat. $5 per each additional cat. If just sitting cats, it is $60/per 24 hour period for the first cat, $10 for each additional cat. If over the 24 hour period on day of return, it's a flat $25 an hour. If 2 1/2 hours or more over, it returns to the $60 rate, plus the rate for additional cats.
Transportation: Transportation to and from each doggy au pairing gig is needed. We are fine with being picked up by the client or having the client send an Uber or Lift.
Payment: I accept Zelle, Venmo, cash or check in advance.
Note: There are times when you are in need of our services and we are already booked with another fur client. Often a minor overlap. We always try to be accommodating and our regular clients are too! We will check with the booked client to see if it would be okay for your pup to come stay with us at their place for the overlap. Same TLC, but instead of a staycation, it is a mini-vacation!
Cancellation Policy: We do understand that sometimes life happens and plans change. We've always been very understanding and have never charged a cancellation fee. But, unfortunately due to several advance bookings for 5+ days that cancelled, we have implemented the following:
If you are booking 4 days or more, a 50% non-refundable deposit of the total cost is required at the time of booking. This can be paid via Zelle, Venmo or check.
If you are booking less than 4 days, no deposit is needed. However, a minimum of 72 hours is needed for cancellation or you will be billed a cancellation fee equaling 30% of your original reservation cost. This can be paid via Zelle, Venmo or check.
