Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Prior to rendering any services we require a meet and greet.  This is a short meeting (at your home or one of ours depending on the inquiry) where we can introduce ourselves, go over your pets needs/routine, and make sure we are a good fit for one another.  Feel free to email, call, or text to schedule a meet and greet.  The meet and greet is free of cost and there is no obligation to book services.

HOW MANY DOGS DO YOU TAKE IN AT ONCE? 

When we board dogs they stay in a loving home.  Pablo’s Pals does not own a brick and mortar kennel.  We will not crate or restrict your dog (unless you do).  We will emulate your pup’s routine at a Pablo’s Pals employee’s home.  We do not take dogs in from different homes at the same time unless we are familiar with their demeanor and all owners agree in advance.  We do not take large numbers of dogs in at one time, even if they are well socialized.  We want to make sure that we are able to give every dog in our care plenty of love and attention. 

WILL YOU ADMINISTER MEDICATION?

Absolutely!  We are comfortable and familiar with administering injections, topical medication, and pills.  It is very important that we go over your pets medical history and specific instructions together prior to your pet being in our care. 

WHEN DO I PAY FOR YOUR SERVICES?

Payment is due after completion of services.  If you are a regular client you can choose to be billed weekly or monthly.  Under special circumstances, such as a lengthy boarding reservation, a down payment may be required.

DO YOU WALK MULTIPLE DOGS AT ONCE?

If you have multiple dogs we will gladly walk them together unless you prefer that we walk them separately.  We will never walk your dog with a neighboring dog unless all owners agree in advance. 

DO YOU HAVE REFERENCES?

Absolutely!  Feel free to ask and we can get you as many as you would like.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK YOUR SERVICES?

It is much easier to get a last minute dog walk or pet sitting visit scheduled than a boarding reservation.  Our scheduling app makes it easy to request a dog walk or in-home pet sitting visit.  Some clients make boarding reservations up to a year in advance to secure their spot.  All of our boarding is done in actual homes, not a kennel, so we do not take many dogs at once.  Either way, it never hurts to ask!

WILL YOU PET SIT IN MY HOME?

Yes!  We are bonded and insured to stay overnight in our client’s homes.  We also offer home services such as taking in the mail and watering plants.

Pablo’s Pals has been amazing. We started using their service last year and have been so appreciative of them. They communicate well, they are flexible, punctual, professional, and experienced. We have a fearful dog who struggles a lot on walks. They worked with us in the beginning to learn the commands we use and what training we do with our dog. We feel 100% safe leaving our more needy dog in their care. Tristina is incredible. She has so much patience and understanding for our dog and she always gives us updates on how he did on the walk or if she had any questions.

Super kind and caring staff. Susan and Tristina had a great deal of patience with our pup who tends to be higher energy and doesn’t always love walking on a leash. Additionally, they were very reliable and responsive. Highly recommend!

Pablo’s Pals checked in on my cat while I was on vacation and also walked my dogs several times. Booking with them was easy, cost is reasonable, they showed-up as scheduled and sent me messages and photos of my pets through their app. They were very professional and easy to work with and their staff genuinely love animals. Highly recommend!

Susan and her team took great care of my cat, Pablo, while I was away. I like that they send you a picture and a quick update with each visit so that you know your pet is doing well. You can tell that each and every one of them are not just doing their jobs but really love animals and treat your pets like their own! Will definitely be using Pablo’s Pals in the future and would recommend them to anyone!

Pablo’s Pal is great! We used their cat sitting service. We met Susan for the initial visit and she is very professional and thorough in going through our cat’s routine. We had Tristina for the home visit when we were out of town and she kept us updated with how our cat is doing, with pictures and videos uploaded to the app they use! It’s comforting to know that our fur baby was happy and taken care of by Pablo’s Pals awesome staff while we were gone. We will for sure use their service again next time we are out of town!

I felt confident in this pet service from the first time I met Susan. She is organized and professional but also paid attention to the quirks and small details that provide comfort to our pets when we’re not available. I also appreciated the updates and pictures that were sent while I was out of town. My experience with Pablos Pals was very positive and I would highly recommend them.
