- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing for canine care came about when I traveled or had long hours. In the picture located on the profile, the 2 black dogs(Pitbull/Shar Pei) were extremely disciplined...however as a dog owner you know that Murphy's law... anything that can go wrong will. Dogs being pack animals or having unpredictability even in a domesticated setting has it's set backs,leaving pets in anyone's care. I interviewed several people. Sometimes desperation was evident in the interviews,or the lack of respect that would be obvious towards my dogs when I was gone. Knowing our pets to some are almost human like and in some cases the companionship and the bond is inseparable. When I first made my decision on my dog walker,I knew through my dogs demeanor and trust,she was part of the family. When care was administered,I always prepared to exceed her pay. In the early 2000's $15 per walk...she received $$25. Example: I was gone for 6 weeks to Australia and New Zealand. $500 bonus was set aside,plus walking and sitting pay. Fast forward,$25 per half hour,$35 per hour. This is my rate that has been set for which may not be at a national level,not everything is equal. I learned from a very wonderful woman that no matter the distance nor time away I always felt a sense of security. Equine care has to be negotiated,based on location,stable size,boarded or owned. Feed times,stall cleanings etc. Turnout for rough board or an owners will also be factored.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
As customers in past businesses,all have entirely different outlooks. Listening first,not giving opinions. Factual answers, when a response is warranted. Dealing with someone's personal live such as there ownership of a pet has serious implications of a whole personal ownership can revolve all there feelings in one basket. Coming home, is THE best feeling watching the kisses and hugs from you're pet is priceless. So full engagement of each threshold you cross will bring a total diversity of the unexpected...but the reality is my belief as a future professional and a job I will perform into my eighties will enlighten all that hire,and yes I have been told I have an infectious personality,we must love something about ourselves,this trait is mine.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I trained for 2 summers at UNH at the collegiate program. Owned my own horses. Both rough board and at my own house. Dogs...let's just say I owned 2 pitbulls, Belgium Shepard,German shepherd,and a Pomeranian. Constant attention must be given for the interaction and control to ensure attention to detail that all lived in harmony.
