You wouldn't hand over anything precious to a complete stranger, so it is very important that you meet, chat and are happy with the person who walks your dog.
The consultation, which normally takes about 30 minutes, is where I introduce myself and we can chat about how Good Dog Walks.com can meet the needs of you and your pet. I also get to meet your wet-nosed companion and we confirm that we are going to be good friends!
Then there is just the small matter of paperwork… The Service Agreement lays out both parties' responsibilities so that you know exactly what to expect. I also need to make a note of the key information about your animal(s) and your vet. Once you are happy then we both sign the agreement and the vet release form.
…and then your best friend is ready to start a wonderful new relationship.
