Meet and Greet-FREE

This initial consultation is required at least 24 hours prior to the first service and it usually takes about 20-30 minutes. During this time, we will discuss the pet's needs, behaviors, routine, services, key exchange, and any questions you may have will be addressed. This will also allow the pet to become comfortable with us, which is an integral part of the socialization process.
