OVERNIGHT SERVICE IN OUR HOME

Dogs will be cared for as if they were our own.      

As such, we will give your dog: love, care and attention.  However, overnight stays do not mean that Fido is supervised 24 hours a day. Dogs can be left alone for up to 8 hours. 


Dogs are given access to designated areas of the home. 


Behavior such as aggression, destruction, or excessive accidents may result in the use of a crate.

New clients that are having overnight service in our home should provide us with a key to their home in case a situation arises in which the dog can not stay at our facility.

    


WHO IS WATCHING YOUR DOG


It is not possible for one person to be in all places at the same time.  There are several dog walkers and sitters that are used as independent contractors by For Paws Philly.  One of these walkers will be assigned to you.  Our independent contractors may be substituted in cases of illness, emergency, scheduled vacation and the like.  All walkers are briefed about clients’ particular needs and are provided with the New Client Form info when working.   All independent contractors are covered under our insurance policy.


YOUR RESPONSIBIILITIES


!!!Cancellation and Schedule Change Policy!!!

If you’re pups or kitties are on a Regular Schedule we ask for  a two week notice of ANY major or longterm schedule changes or cancellations.  

Any other cancellations or schedule changes require 24 hours notice.  


You will be billed for last minute cancellations!!!



FLEA AND TICK PREVENTATIVE

Your Dog must be on flea and tick preventative, year round this protects your pup and the others he comes in contact with in the city.


ID TAGS

Your pooch is part of your family, so if he were ever to get loose from a collar or break from a leash, we ask that your precious pet is always supplied with a current ID tag with a phone number contact and we suggest getting him micro chipped.  


PICK UP AND DROP OFF

Pick up and drop off times are by appointment.  While we try to be as flexible as possible, if an appointment is missed we may need to reschedule the drop off/pick up of your pet.  We ask that if you are running late to please call and let us know.

Late pick up charges are billed in half day increments. 


FOOD

For Overnight Care we ask that you provide more food than necessary for the duration of your dog’s visit.  If planes are delayed, or work trips are extended, we will have extra food for Buddy.  If circumstances arise that require us to provide food for your dog additional charges will apply. 


CHARGE  FOR FOOD:

Dogs 35 lbs and under - $3 per day

Dogs over 35 lbs - $5 per day


We ask that all information be truthful to the best of your knowledge when telling us about the needs and behaviors of your pets.  The more we know the better we are suited to take care of your loved ones.  It will also prevent difficult, unexpected, and potentially dangerous situations from occurring in the future.  


If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions we would love to hear them! We are a young and growing business and are always looking for ways to improve our services.
