FAQs

So, you are curious about a few other things.....

Check out our FAQs below to see if we can clear up some questions 

  • I have a dog larger than 30lbs can I still use your services?

We generally stick to small and toy dogs breeds, but we can certainly discuss your needs to see if we can make an accommodation. Give us a call at (917) 426-2224 or send us an email to talkthebark@gmail.com so we can discuss further!

  • I need your pet sitter service outside of your current hours and/or days, what can you do?

Our current hours reflect our availability. No accommodations can be made at this time but please check back regularly to see when we increase our hours. 

  • I need your pet sitter services for a different number of hours than what you offer, what do I do? 

We can provide customized hours based on your needs. Give us a call at (917) 426-2224 or send us an email to talkthebark@gmail.com.

  • I have a last-minute dog sitting need, are meet & greets always required?

Yes! As a professional dog sitter, it is crucial to ensure that the connection between the furfamily and myself is a healthy and safe one. Each furbaby has their own personality and we need to make sure they will feel comfortable and happy in my care. 

  • What do I need to pack for my dog on our days apart?

Aside from the essentials (food, water, toys, bedding, etc.), we always recommend leaving blankets and/or clothing around the house so your furbaby can snuggle up on them. We found your familiar scent is a soothing technique for most dogs and provides them that extra bit of comfort they need when they are away from you. ​

  • Why do I need to fill out the intake form before my pet sitting service can be confirmed? 

Every dog has a different personality and to keep them safe I need to know certain details before I care for them. This is so that I can provide the quality of service you expect and the care your furbaby deserves. The form is intended to give me a good idea of the type of dog I will be caring for and allows me to customize their care based on their needs, likes, and dislikes.
