I would like the Dogsters services. Now, what do I do?

Upon receiving your phone call, email, or text, we will arrange a FREE interview to perform a brief “in-

home” evaluation of your pet and property. During this initial interview, I will:

Step 1. Answer all of your questions regarding our services.

Step 2. Fill out the necessary forms and paperwork. The type of information we collect and discuss


Forms & Business Information


  • Detailed notes regarding your pet’s habits, food, favorite toys, exercise routine, veterinarian, and medical history (vaccination records).
  • A list of the locations for pet food, collars, leashes, treats, toys, cleaning supplies, etc. that we will need for the care of your pets and property.
  • Keys to your home; we prefer one set for the sitter and one set as an office backup copy. We will confirm the keys work and store them safely in our Permanent Key Safe. Keys are not labeled with any of your property information.
  • Emergency contact information, medical instructions/permission forms, and how to contact you if necessary.
  • You decide how often you want your sitter to visit each day you’re away and what services you want to be performed. Our fees will be calculated based on the type, and quantity of pets. Along with the quantity and duration of daily visits.

Step 3. Upon your review and approval, we ask that you sign the service contract which describes our policies and guidelines.

Step 4. After this meeting is completed and we have your information on file, our service is as simple as a phone call, text, or email.

I will never arrive at your home with company advertising on my vehicle.
It is my endeavor to raise no awareness of your absence.
