Dog Day is Adding In-Home Pet Sitting!

We know many pet parents are concerned about the dog flu but also have travel plans this summer. We have launched a new in-home pet care service for current customers to help accommodate you and your pet’s needs. The same amazing team that cares for your pup at DDA will be providing these services in your home. All in-home care team members have been though Dog Day’s pack leader training and are trained and current in Pet CPR and First Aid.

Safety is always our number one concern, so not only will trusted and trained team members be caring for your pet, but all team members are bonded and insured. We are utilizing feature-rich software that allows us to offer complimentary features, such as GPS tracking and Visit Report Cards that will send you updates after your pet’s visit has been completed. This is a separate software from Gingr (our daycare and overnight software), so you will need to have a separate account (we can help you with that!).

Before your pet’s first visit, we require a FREE initial consultation. A Team Member will review your pet’s detailed instructions, answer questions, transfer keys or lockbox code, and visit with your pet. You may either give us a set of house keys to keep on file (stored in a locked safe when not in used, without names or addresses) or you may provide a doorknob lock box and code for our team member to use during visits.

All visits are customized based on your pet’s needs and your wishes. For dogs, we recommend 3 visits per day when you are out of town, and require at least 2 visits (with the exception of your departure and arrival dates). For pet’s enjoying a Sleepover Visit, we recommend at least 1 mid-day visit to compliment their care.

You can mix and match visits to meet your pet’s needs  too. Sometimes a longer visit in the morning starts the day off right, or maybe your pet needs some extra time at night. Whatever their schedule, our variety of options should be able to meet their needs. Are we missing anything? Let us know, so we can create the perfect schedule for your pup!
