How we work:

dog horse

We generally need a one week notice to allow time to set up a free, no charge appointment, so that you can meet us, and we can meet you and your pet(s) in your home. More notice is recommended for holiday scheduling.

At this time, we will go over pet and home care instructions to customize the service for your household. We cover things like: diet, medication, favorite toys, litter boxes if you have a cat, etc. We will then go through the service agreement and policies, and will obtain a key to your home.

Watchdog prefers to use your own veterinary hospital in case of an emergency, as your vet is familiar with you pet’s history.

Watchdog workers strive to treat your pets as if they were their own.
