We try to get as close to the ideal time for pickups for all our services, however an understanding of a range is necessary. Typically morning, midday and evening time blocks.
Over Nights are for 24 hours of consecutive care.
If a pick up is 10am-12pm, the drop off will be within the same time block.
Later drop offs can be requested for a regular service charge.
If a client is returning after 6pm, we reserve the right to keep the pet another night to avoid any travel delays or the pet being alone too long.
We have cold weather protocol and hot weather protocol that we implement accordingly.
We typically take the pups for extra time on a regular basis, so that when it is prohibitive to spend extended exposure outdoors, we have the freedom to use our discretion about the length of our outings. Obviously, safety is our priority in all circumstances.
· We use Musher's Secret on their paws to prevent discomfort and snow getting stuck between their pads.
· We will use any outerwear available to keep them insulated.
· We keep moving and hike in areas of the park that have shelter from the direct wind.
· We will limit the outside time exposure of there are any signs of discomfort or chill.
For hot weather protocol or temperatures above 85 degrees:
· We walk on shady paths to avoid too much exposure to direct sunlight.
· We keep the exercise levels moderated, so pups don’t over exhaust themselves.
· We keep them hydrated safely, so they don’t drink too much at once.
· We douse them with water before and after activity, to help prevent overheating.
Please allow 48 hours response to a non-emergency email or voice mail communication.
