In addition, per your request we can also

These tasks are free on request, and help to give your home a “lived in” look to deter potential burglars while you are away.
Initial Meet & Greet Info:
An initial interview is necessary to allow the sitter to go over any questions, special instructions, and to see the locations of food & supplies, as well as to allow you to fill out the required paperwork. It also gives a chance for the sitter and your pet to meet and become accustomed while you are present.
For new clients, 3-4 days notice is preferred before services are to begin, to allow time to schedule an interview, fill out required paperwork, meet the pets & go over the routine, and go over any details.
For established clients who have already received initial interview/prior service, regular visits/services can take place within 6 hours a verbal confirmation if there is availability.
Please note: Services WILL NOT begin before talking to you on the phone to receive updated care and contact information. If you get our voicemail, please leave a time and number where it is best to reach you and we will return your call as soon as possible. Visits and services will begin ONLY after a verbal confirmation. Please keep this policy in mind before planning your trip for the safety and comfort of your animals.
Barnyards & Backyards Farm & Pet Sitting reserves the right to refuse service to any client for any reason.
