Time to Pet is our client management system. When you sign up with our services, we will send you an email with login instructions for Time to Pet. Time to Pet is where you will enter all of your pet and home care information and schedule service. Please refer to our how to get started guide here.
Will you care for my pet if he/she has shown aggression in the past?

No. We cannot provide care to any pet that has shown aggression, even if it was years ago. However, we can refer you to a respectable trainer who might be able to assist you.

Will the same person care for my pets each time?

Yes. Unlike some pet sitting services,  you will be assigned your primary pet sitter and their back up sitter. The two work as a team. If for some reason your primary sitter is unable to perform the pet visits, their back up sitter would step in. At no time, will someone enter your home that you and your pets haven't met.

What is your backup plan?

At For Your Privileged Pets, we work in teams with a primary pet sitter and a backup sitter. In the event, your primary sitter is unavailable to do your visits ( becomes ill, family emergency, etc. ) the backup sitter would step in and care for your pets. You will have an opportunity to meet both pet sitters at the meet and greet.
