All boarding dogs have to be either crate trained or not destructive when left on their own. I leave for approximately 3 hours a day to walk dogs midday and they need to be able to be on their own during that time. My insurance does not cover my home should your dog chew, scratch, or pee on my furniture.
All pets must be up to date on their vaccinations, house trained for services in my home (at least mostly), and spayed/neutered if they are over 1 yr old. I can not accommodate female dogs in heat in my home. Any dogs that mark will be put in belly bands or diapers and you will be invoiced for the expense.
Meet & Greet:
My insurance requires a Meet & Greet to be completed before any service at my home. Meet & Greets are scheduled before 11am or after 3pm. I encourage you to schedule a Meet & Greet even if it's for other services so we can go over any care instructions in person and you can see how I interact with your pet(s).
We ask that walk cancelations be made by 6pm the evening prior. After 6pm, there is a 50% cancellation fee and same day cancelations are charged at the full rate.
If you cancel for other services with less than a week's notice (if no deposit is required), you will be sent an invoice for 20% of your bill. ***This is not currently in effect due to the coronavirus pandemic***
A non-refundable 50% deposit is required for boarding, house sitting, or pet sitting drop in visits scheduled during the holidays listed above as well as the summer months. **This is not currently in effect due to the coronavirus pandemic***
Hours of Service:
Services before 7am or after 8:45 pm may incur a $5 add'l fee.
We service all of Bel Air as well as parts of Forest Hill, Abingdon, Fallston, and Churchville. If you are more than 6 miles or 15 minutes away from Amyclae Estates there may be a small additional charge for services.
There is a holiday fee on certain holidays listed here: New Year's Day, Easter Sunday, Mother's Day, Memorial Day (Sunday & Monday), Independence Day, Labor Day (Sunday & Monday), Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve.
We may limit services to Bel Air & Forest Hill over major holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving in order to spend more time with our families.
We will always make every effort to get to your pet but if road conditions are unsafe, we will have to wait until conditions improve. When temps are below freezing or excessively hot, we will walk your dog until they finish their business and spend the remaining time cuddling and playing with them. I don't walk in thunderstorms but will do a quick potty break. Please give instructions for walking your dog when it's raining and provide towels for drying.
Payments are accepted by cash, check, Zelle, Cash App, Venmo, credit card & PayPal, just let me know which payment method you prefer and I'll give you the details for that platform. Zelle is my preferred electronic payment method.
