Questions And Answers
Q: Why should I hire WalkTime For Pets to walk
my dog while I'm at work or pet sit my pets while
I'm on vacation?
A: We are bonded and insured..   We all love,
respect and care about animals.   We believe all
animals have the right to be treated with love and
care.    My life revolves around animals.     I've
spent my whole life with mostly dogs, but have also
had cats, iguanas, snakes, ferrets, guinea pigs,
rabbits, horses, birds, and I have pet sat for pigs,
sheep, cows, goats and chickens.
Q:  How long has the owner been dog walking or
A:   I have over 15 yrs of experience with
 I have been watching friends pets since
1987.    I never looked at it as petsitting, I only
thought I was having fun walking the dogs, or
cuddling with the cats (when they decided it was
ok, LOL).    In 1999, I was walking my own dog
when I decided I would start a dog walking
service.  I wanted a job that I loved, would enjoy
doing, and would want to wake up every morning
and go to (which everyone knows most jobs you
want to call out sick everyday and stay in bed).   
This is how WalkTime For Pets began
Q:  If I decide I want your company to walk my dog
or watch my cats, what do I do?
A:  You would need to email Susan or call her
Q:  Once I call 443-253-6586 or email Susan, what
happens next?
A:   We would then set up an initial consultation for
me to meet you and your pets.     Then you would
need to fill out some paperwork.   The paperwork
consist of a contract stating you are giving my
company permission to come into your home to
take care of your pets.    Pet Info would need to be
filled out.   This is so we know everything about your
pets (allergies, likes, dislikes, feeding routine,
words they know, etc.....).   You would also need to
fill out a Veterinary Release.   This is in case
something were to happen to one of your pets.   
Say we're walking down the street and the dog
walks in the grass and their happens to be a piece
of glass there.   If the dog gets hurt, we are able to
take them to a vet.    The contact information is so
we know who to reach in case of an emergency, or
if we have any questions.    And the Home Guide
paperwork is so we know where things are in the
house that may need to be used (dog/cat food,
litter, brush, cleaning supplies (in case an animal
has an accident in the house), towels (in case it
rains), etc......)
Q:   Now I've hired your company and it's the day
I'm leaving, what should I do?
A:   Call us to confirm your still leaving.
Q:  If I want to know how my pets are doing while
I'm away, can I call you?
A:  You can call me 24/7.   I am usually up till
around 2am and I wake up in the morning around
Q:   If you can't walk my dog and you have a
contractor for your company doing it, will I meet
A:   Yes, you will meet them on the Initial
consultation.    The only time I have to have a
contractor come in to watch your animals, when it
wasn't planned on from the beginning, is if I had an
emergency to tend to (i was in a car accident, flat
tire in no mans land, car broke down----most likely
these things don't happen without me already
having a back up plan).
Q:  My dog/cat needs a special diet.    Will you
cook the food for him/her?
A:   We will but we'd prefer that you do it.   We
don't want to add to much or to little of something
they need or don't need.
Q:  My dog is very strong, and he may pull you
down the street if he sees another animal.   Can
you handle him?
A:   We only send someone that is capable of
working with your dog.   If your dog weighs in at
180 lbs, someone strong enough will be walking
your dog.
Q:  There's been an emergency and I need you to
start watching my dog right away, are you able to
do it?
A:  We do everything possible to make
arrangements to get a pet on our schedules.  If
you are a client of ours already, yes we will fit you
in.   If you have never used our service before,
then I'd still have to meet your pets and have the
paperwork filled out.    It's in everyones best
interest for the dog walker/petsitter to meet the
pets and know what to expect first hand before
walking thru a door without the owner being there
Q:  My friend wants to stop by and see my pet
while I'm gone and your watching them, is that ok?
A:  It's great for an animal to have as much
attention as possible from people while the owner
is away, but for liability reasons, we ask that the
friend either stop by while we're there.   If that's not
possible, then we ask that the friend leave us a
note of everything they did with the pet, especially
if they fed them anything.   This keeps us up to
date on what the animal has eaten in case they get
sick, we know what they've had.
If there are any other
questions that you have
that I have not put in here,
please contact me by
email or you can call me
at 443-253-6586.   Thank
you for taking the time to
read this.

My dogs live here, they're here to stay.
You don't like pets? Be on your way.
They share my home, my food, my space.
This is their home, this is their place.

You will find dog hair on the floor,
They will alert you're at the door.
They may request a little pat,
A simple 'NO' will settle that.

It gripes me when I hear you say,
'Just how is it you live this way?
They smell, they shed, they're in the way.'
WHO ASKED YOU? is all I can say.

They love me more than anyone.
My voice is like the rising sun,
They merely have to hear me say,
'C'mon, time to go and play.'

Then tails wag and faces grin,
They bounce and hop and make a din.
They never say, 'No time for you,'
They're always there, to GO and DO.

And if I'm sad, they're by my side.
And if I'm mad, they circle wide.
And if I laugh, they laugh with me.
They understand, they always see.

So, once again, I say to you,'Come visit me,' but know this too...
