Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Always do a meet and greet before hiring any pet service. Check out the facilities and meet the staff that will be taking care of your pet. Review any procedures in case of medical emergency.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Always ask for referrals from someone in the same field. We work with a lot of shelters, groomers, vets and we get the inside scoop on the best businesses.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. Will my pet be kept in a cage or free to roam? Will he have much play time or will he be left alone for long periods of time?
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I only take one client at a time, so there is no chance of disagreeable temperaments from cross-client pets.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. Every animal has a distinct personality, and I enjoy meeting my new boarders.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. Most customers want to be sure that their pets will be cared for and that's the purpose of what I do here. I welcome them into my home just as friends or family would.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. It's crucial to get your new client's vet records up front. Not only do you want to be sure your client's vaccination records are up to date, but you want to be sure to know which vet to contact in case of an emergency.
