These sessions are scheduled at your convenience and are at your own home. You will be required to complete 2 forms for safety and insurance purposes and they are last anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour.
How often do I get updates?
We give you an update on your pet after every visit we make. If we are carrying out pet sitting, updates will be once daily, unless more is requested.

In the unlikely event of an emergency, we will contact you immediately. If we cannot get hold of you, your emergency contact will be called.

Your pet will not be left unattended unless the vet has advised that it is safe to do so.
