What will be covered during the "Meet and Greet" consultation?

The purpose of the meet and greet is to get acquainted with you and interact with your pet(s).  This is very important and is required before pet sitting service can begin.  We will gather information about your pets and go over guidelines, policies and procedures.  This visit takes approximately 45 minutes and is scheduled at your convenience.  We will also collect your house key during this visit.
