    Meet and Greet:   Prior to your initial service we will schedule a complimentary meet and greet.  This visit takes about 30 minutes and will allow us time to get to know one other. If during this visit you decide to schedule service, we can complete any unfinished paperwork and review what services you are interested in reserving for your pet.   Please have 2 house keys handy and information regarding any home security system.
      The Pet and Client Information form can be found on our website. It is very helpful if this form is filled out in advance of your appointment.  I will bring other paperwork to the appointment to include a key handling agreement, a veterinary release agreement and a care contract.  If you would like to have these documents in advance of this meeting they can be downloaded from the main website.  Payment: Payment for the initial reservation is collected at the meet and greet. 
    Payment for established clients is collected prior to or at the time of service. 
    Currently we accept cash and checks.

    I found Carolyn's Pampered Pets via the internet. I was looking for someone who was caring, trustworthy, and most importantly someone my pets liked! I was on a hunt for the very best. Previously being a professional petsitter myself, I had some very high expectations, all of which Carolyn has lived up to. My dog and cat love having Carolyn over! It's a real treat for them. All kinds of spoiled going on from treats to belly rubs:) I highly recommend Carolyn's Pampered Pets for the care of your fur babies! Very responsible and reliable! Thanks Carolyn!!

    I never realized how much I needed a dog walking service until I tried it. Buster is so much calmer and happier on the days that Carolyn visits. It's great because he gets a break and some exercise, but the rest of the time he can relax in the comfort of our home. And Carolyn is fantastic! She's completely reliable, well organized and professional. Buster adores her. And I love that she sends me pictures of Buster when she visits. Highly, highly recommend!

    Carolyn helped us out with our pet care needs over the holidays and we are so grateful to have found her. She is a true professional who goes above and beyond in her care of our pets. We knew at our meet and greet that we could trust her with our dog and our cat. She asks detailed and thorough questions about their health and routines. While we were away from home, she checked in with us as frequently as we liked with photo updates for our peace of mind. Thank you Carolyn!
