Twenty-five per cent of this is transferable to other services should you cancel, 25% I‟d like you to come home to a fresh bed.

Contact Information • Your Name(s) • Home address (including zip code please), • Home phone number, • Cell phone numbers(s) ▪ Your email address • Emergency Contact(s) - such as neighbor(s), handy-person or family member. • Your number away from home, such as a hotel phone if you would like to provide it. I am happy to provide you with a Pet Report (provided on alternate days) of our activities and capers while you are away. This is a free service that some clients enjoy. Please let me know if you would like to receive these email reports. It is my practice and preference to not answer your house phone. I‟ve found it seems to work better for all if I let your answering service take messages from callers. However, should you need or want to reach me, please feel free to call me on my line – (858.259.WOOF). I check my messages at least twice a day. Otherwise, you may let your house phone ring once, hang up, and then call back If I am there, I will know that it‟s you and will answer. Of course, should I need to, I will not hesitate to call you. Please state here if you have any other preferences. • Computer Is it OK for me to use one of your computers to send your pet reports and to check my email on the web?
