4 Pawz Sake FAQs
Tipping: A topic to 'tip'-toe around? No, we are actually asked about this often. In a nutshell pet care business professionals, which include groomers, pet sitters, and walkers are considered the same as any other service industry professional who are tipped. We strive to provide the best care with attention to every detail with or without tips. If you would like to show how much you appreciate our care with a gratuity, please do as it is sincerely appreciated.
Extending Your Trip? No Problem! Let us know as soon as you decide you need an extra day on the beach or the powder is so awesome you just can't return home, we get it! You'll simply pay for services online, how simple is that?!
Off Leash/ Kitty Deck Time: Your dog may do great off leash or your kitty may love fresh air from the deck or balcony but we choose not to leave an open opportunity for pets in our care to go astray.
Texting: What a wonderful convenience and privilege. Please know we have very busy days. Sometimes we may encounter delays due to weather, traffic, clean ups or unexpected issues at homes. We always communicate and you will receive a text/email as soon as possible after we complete a visit.
Timing of Visits: Mid-days and mornings are the busiest. Will FiFi be let at out at noon? We do our best to accommodate each request and understand each need but we cannot be at each home at the same time even if we click our heels three times. We place everyone in a window of time as we base our days on priority/routing which may include added time for seniors, puppies, medications, crated versus dog door access. while taking into account delays in weather, traffic, and any unforeseen issues that can arise at any home. Most importantly everyone is attended to in a proper and timely manner. Operating hours are 7AM-9PM daily, 24/7/365. Should your home require visits outside of our operating hours we're happy to accommodate and an added rates will apply based on the specific needs of your pets/home.
What supplies are needed?: We'll go over these in detail at your home but we do recommend one location for all cleaning supplies, towels for paws and inclement weather days to dry furry bodies or warm up after our outside adventures!
