Additional Information

If you are having more than one visit per day for your dog, I recommend having no longer than 5 hours between visits for their comfort.

Cats and small animals will be visited basically on the same schedule but not before 10AM or after 9 PM. The reason being is that they, more than likely, will have a litter box, cage, etc. to relieve themselves and dogs do not. Thank you for your understanding.

Our Rates


There MUST be an initial meet and greet before any services are booked, as I will need to obtain important information about your pet and to make sure that YOU are comfortable with me looking after your pet.  Your pet must also feel comfortable with me and if there are any anxiety issues, they will be addressed at this time.  There is no charge for this meeting.

Tails 'R Us Pet Care Policies

Payment Policy   

Daily dog walking clients must pay on the last scheduled day of the week.  Payment may be made by cash, local check, Paypal (friend and family ONLY), and Venmo. 

Pet sitting clients must leave payment in full prior to the start of the pet sit, unless a prior arrangement has been made.

There is a $30.00 fee charged for any check that is returned for non-payment.

Inclement Weather:

To ensure the safety of your dog, as well as myself and that my independent contractors, regularly scheduled walks are cancelled when local governmental offices are closed due to inclement weather. If there are no closures, we will get to your home to care for your pet as soon as safety permits.

In the event of extreme weather conditions (such as thunderstorms, tropical storms or extreme heat), dogs will be taken out long enough to relieve themselves – the remainder of the visit will be spent indoors cuddling, playing and having fun.

Dog Walking Policy:

Any dog in our care is walked on a leash and is not allowed to run free unless in a fenced-in yard. We must be in control of your dog at all times. A leash and/or harness along with a collar and proper tags, must be provided for any dog that is walked off your property.  Thank you for your understanding.

If you do not need dog walking or pet sitting for a regularly scheduled visit, please TEXT me at 201-207-5925 with as much notice as possible. Please be kind and do not cancel at the last minute unless in case of an emergency or sudden onset of illness.
