What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Different provider use different pricing structure, with add-ons for multiple pets, administering medication or pets with special needs. I prefer to charge for time spent. We will discuss your needs and I will provide you with an estimate based on how long I think it will take me to do everything, making sure there is plenty of time to pamper your pet.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Give me as much information as possible. Tell when you need me, what you need from me and about your pet. Feel free to ask questions. Check out my website for additional testimonials from clients.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
There are a lot of "hobbyist" out there, part-timers who love animals and pet sit in their spare time to make a little extra cash. I am a dedicated, experienced pet care professional. I am a business person and am insured and bonded. I'm not the cheapest, which is probably why I haven't been hired more on this site. But as you can see, the people who did hire me were completely satisfied.
