Are you looking for a dog walking & pet sitting service in South Florida?
Here are the top five tips for hiring a reputable Pet Service company. These tips apply especially to Pet Service companies that are serving Parkland, Boca Raton and Coral Springs, Florida.
1. Qualifications and Experience
When calling a Pet Service company, be sure to ask what their experience is with animals. You would be surprised how many people advertise pet care and have never had a pet or been around animals.
Getting a list of references and CALLING them is a good way to look at their professional history. This will give you a good indication of how they will conduct business in the future.
3. Licensed and Insured
Asking for a copy of their license and insurance is a great way to separate the fly-by-night individuals from the professional businesses. Using a company that has a license and insurance is a safeguard for you and your pets. Most companies that carry these tend to be more reliable and trustworthy.
It is important for you to establish the price of each visit up front. The prices range from $15 - $20 per half hour. Services vary from just a walk ($15) to walking, playtime, watering plants, taking out garbage and bringing in the mail ($20).
5. Emergency Procedure
The Pet Service needs to have a back up plan if they cannot make the appointment. Most professional companies have trusted back up people to fill in for them if an emergency arises.
