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 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
Bridget was very warm and friendly, and very accommodating. She came by twice every day to feed the cats, clean the litter, and collect the mail. The cats were happy and the apartment was very clean when we returned, all for a very reasonable price.Aug 25, 2016VerifiedSafeConduct Professional Pet Care Services's reply
Thank you for taking the time to post a favorable review of my performance, Maia! I hope we can work togwther w/Chili & Jal going forward. It was a pleasure to meet you and to care for C & J!
- 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 dictates 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 & 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 animal behaviors and also those of humans around them.
