the perfect fit for you (and your pet).

Key Pick Up/Drop Off Fee

The Wagging Tail requires two (2) home keys to be obtained at the introductory

meeting.  Additional trips to the client’s home to obtain house keys will result in

a $15 fee per visit.  One key will be used primarily by the assigned pet sitter while

the second will remain as back up in case emergency access is needed to the

client’s home.  The back up key will be stored in a lock box at our office.  All keys

should be tested prior to distribution to the pet sitter.


Key Retrieval Service
If a client is locked out of their home and contacts The Wagging Tail to retrieve their

key, we will charge a $25 fee during normal business hours. After business hours,

The Wagging Tail will charge a $45 fee. Please note this service is based on

availability of   the walker only; it is not guaranteed.

Inclement Weather Policy
For the safety of our walkers and sitters, The Wagging Tail will follow the Local Government closing policy during inclement weather. If the schools and government are closed, we feel that driving conditions are too dangerous for our animal care givers to brave the roads. We request that our clients contact us to check availability by 9:00am.

If possible, please make appropriate arrangements in advance to enlist the help of a neighbor during severe weather. Clients requesting service on severe/inclement snow days will be charged an additional $10 per visit. The surcharge will go directly to the   sitter who is going out in dangerous conditions.
