Bridget was very nice as a person and apparently created a nice bond we think my dog. Unfortunately the whole point is that I was out of the country and needed peace of find and because of technological issues that were not solved I had no stable communication with her and was in a state of unease regarding the state of my dog several days. Hope she can fix this issues since in my case it deeply affected the experience.Apr 4, 2016VerifiedSafeConduct Professional Pet Care Services's reply
Hi Cristobal & Jelly, for what it's worth I have some time ago resolved the rechargeable issues which flawed your experience with me. I enjoyed Jelly very much, sorry to have caused anxiety
I suppose it's a bit early to review Bridgit, but we have been blown away at the results of her consultation time with us in which she gave us a demonstration of her approach and asked us to have our dog examined for illness as a possible reason for her poor behavior. As our vet said after we ruled out illness as the cause of our dog's behavior--"...she is not ill and it is behavioral. This dog is a real challenge." We began the minute Bridgit left to follow her instructions A week later the changes in our dog's behavior have blown us away. It has been kind of remarkable. Our spoiled little dog still has plenty of issues, but we fill confident that with Bridgit's guidance, we can turn this around.Nov 4, 2019Verified
I went out of town to my family for two weeks. I had seen Bridget Hull in our Manhattan neighborhood with dogs for years, and chatted with here several times. We both use the same diner, by chance, so we'd chat at the breakfast counter often. I entrusted her with my apartment key, and twice-daily care of my rather sickly cat. A couple of reassuring texts early on. Came home to 100% satisfaction. House undisturbed and pristine, the cat in great shape, affectionate to Ms. Hull. She has a rather rough-hewn style but don't be fooled: she's the real thing. John Douglas at 917-239-6981.Feb 6, 2016SafeConduct Professional Pet Care Services's reply
Bridget Hull is an outstanding pet care person that sounds funny but referring to her as a dog walker doesn't cover her skill and talent. I have recommended Bridget to friends who are both dog and cat owners. All have been happy with her work.Aug 5, 2015
Bridget took excellent care of our cat while we were away for 11 days. During this time she took great care of our plants and picked up our mail. Bridget texted daily with updates and put us ease.Sep 7, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The area in which I do most of my work has until recently arrived at a common scale for dog walks: $20 minimum for 30 minutes, $25 per hour for each dog. Of course, as one gets known in a neighborhood, one adjusts to certain clients &/or conditions so flexibility is necessary. Re sitting/visit fees, length of stay or number of visits needed over extensive periods usually dictate a discounted rate.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When possible, I set up a complimentary visit to the client's home as a way of introducing myself to the pet(s) while the pet sees its owner accept me into home turf and we together play/walk/discuss the pet's needs. All involved thus know whether I'm a good fit. While starting work, I either leave notes re pet's behavior, etc or text daily to the owners, for each day's peace of mind.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?When I began walking/sitting dogs & cats about 22 years ago, the field was much less crowded & more informal. I learned day by day, having been given one basic essential instruction from a more seasoned pro: Pay Attention. I learned & still do learn how deeply one can absorb and read animal behaviors and also those of humans around them. How acutely an animal responds or reacts to those human or animal while influenced by the handler—a real & affecting responsibility as integral as attention.
