Every potential booking comes with a free meet & greet. Meet & greets for drop-ins and walks are up to 30 minutes and meet & greets for overnights are up to 45 minutes.

Meet & Greet

Half of the cost of service is due at the meet & greet to secure your place in my schedule. The other half of the cost is due within three days of the stay beginning. I take payment via PayPal or check. Payment is due in full before services are rendered.


You'll get a full refund if you cancel by 12:00 noon one week before the stay begins (12:00 noon is determined by Pacific Standard Time). If you cancel after 12:00 noon one week before the stay begins, you'll get a 50% refund for the first 7 cancelled days. Example:If you cancel a 4-week vacation after 12:00 noon the day before the stay begins, you'll only be charged 50% for the first 7 days. You'll get a full refund for the remaining 3 weeks. If the stay has already begun there is no refund. (Such as if you decide to come home early.)

Cancellation Policy

I charge $20 for any extra trips after the first covered meet & greet, whether it be to get a key, meet you/your pets again, etc. Please have a key ready for me at the meet & greet or hide it outside somewhere before I arrive for the stay (which is not the preferred method).

Key Fee

For overnight housesitting, holiday rate starts at $55 per night instead of $45. Holiday rates for dog walks and drop-ins are $30 for up to half an hour visit or $40 for an hour visit.
