For your convenience, our most common customer questions are answered right here. Not finding what you want? Reach out directly through our Contact Us page.
Q: Will you provide references I can speak with directly?
Q: Can we meet first so I can be sure my pet will like you?
Yes. In fact, we insist on it, and the meeting is free. At that time, we’ll learn about your pets, fill out paperwork, take notes about your home and required tasks, and collect keys from you.
Q: What if something happens to you? Do you have a backup plan?
Yes, we create a backup plan for every client. Trica has a network of trusted pet sitters whom she can call on for help if something happens to her. These are people she knows and trusts. She will also obtain the name of a neighbor or nearby friend who has a key to your house and can step in if weather or a natural disaster should prevent her from getting to your home. And lastly, Trica will have your vet’s phone numbers and address and will map out the office and nearby emergency clinics.

Q: Do you sit for pets with special needs?

Q: What will you do if my pet gets sick or has an accident?

We will contact you immediately if your pet needs veterinary or special care and then follow your directions. Should you be unavailable, we will take every measure needed to ensure your pet receives proper care. This will all be discussed clearly in our initial consult.
