Services & Fees
A high percentage of the business is from repeat customers and referrals. I do have excellent references to provide you! Please call well in advance to reserve my service. There is a 20% surcharge for last minute reservations/ cancelations 24 hrs. or less.
You can refer as many people as you like to Bushey Pet Sitting. For each new booked client you refer you'll receive one visit or one dog walking service half-off! Be sure to let your friends know to mention that you referred them. And thank you!
I provide quality care for all pets in the comfort of their own home.Typical sits include feeding, giving fresh water, cleaning bowls and food area, litter box maintenance, potty breaks (around yard or a dog walk), medication if needed (there's an extra charge for medication administration, plus a med chart I provide), and lots of TLC. Each visit typically lasts about 45 min. or more, depending on the care and maintenance of the household. A Welcome Home card is left to make sure you contact me upon your return. Also, during your absence, I can email/ text/ send photos of your pet(s) so you stay connected.
Business policies: I ask that cats stay indoors. Fees are determined on number of pets, care, etc. in household. Please refer to fees.
Service also includes: Upon instructions, I will turn on/off lights at various times/days, open/ close curtains/blinds, bring in your mail/ newspaper, water your house plants, put out your trash/ recycling, and do a general check of the premises. This gives your home a lived-in look while you are away. There may be an extra charge for outside watering if beyond a couple flower pots.
MID-DAY DOG WALKING
I also offer mid-day dog walking (with their own personal dog water bottle (if they don't have one), waste bags, and towels, if need be). Whether you are at work, sick/ injured, or just sick of walking your dog, we will be more than happy to take Fido out for exercise and poddy relief! Please call for time availability, especially if you plan for weekly walks. Fees are determined on a number of dogs per household.
Free First Time Consultation Visits
First time consultation visits are FREE! I will meet with you and your pet(s), learn about the pet’s routine and likes/ dislikes, where pertinent items such as food/ supplies are located, go over general instructions, and do the all-important contract. This is also a good time to discuss the key.
