Where does Unleashed Canine Care walk dogs?
We are conveniently located in downtown Saratoga Springs and can provide dog walking services in the surrounding areas of 12866. We also schedule private obedience training lessons in and around homes throughout the Capital District.
What is the scheduling and cancellation policy?
Generally, 24-hours in advance works for us. We understand that life happens, work happens, and schedules change, so we try not to get our leashes in a bunch. However, weekend appointments, which are scheduled on a case-by-case basis, will have a 24-hour advance cancellation fee of 1/2 the service amount.
Is Unleashed Canine Care insured and bonded?
Yup! We are licensed, insured, and bonded. We take our role as your pet professional very seriously, and treat your home and your pet as if they are our own. That being said, your keys, home security codes, and personal property are kept safe and secure, and your pet is always protected while in our care.
What are your business hours and walking hours?
Dog walking is not your typical 9-5 gig. While we cannot guarantee a specific walk time, we can provide a two-hour window that we will be arriving to care for your pet. Since dog walkers get invited to a lot of weddings, weekends are a case-by-case basis and subject to availability.
How do you bill and accept payment?
We email you an invoice with a detailed breakdown of your service. Currently, we accept payment via cash or personal check. A late fee of 10% is incurred for all unpaid invoices after 10 days and a $35 returned check fee will apply.
Do you provide solo or group walks?
All of our walks are solo walks with the exception of multi-dog households. Group walks get a bad rap, but they can be safe and fun for the right dog-combo, such as neighbors or best buds. We only schedule a group walk after written consent from all parties and a thorough meeting of the potential couple. Also, we only have two hands, so we always play it safe and smart.
Do you provide care for other pets in the home, such as hamsters and Fish?
Um, YEAH! There isn't an animal on this planet that we wouldn't care for. We're happy to check on the fish, the parakeets, the gerbils, and any other family critter that lives in your home.
Do you provide discounts to military veterans?
We sure do! Our veterans and military servicemen, women, and canines are a valued and important part of our community. We're proud to offer 10% off dog walking services.
I'm visiting the area and staying in a pet-friendly hotel. Can you care for my pet at a location other than home?
Of course! We work closely with several pet-friendly vacation spots and can easily work out a plan to provide care for your pet, especially while you are out sightseeing. Our procedures vary a bit for out-of-town guests, but our level of care and love remains the same. Contact us to discuss how we can best fit into your pet's travel plans!
Do you provide boarding services?
Professional boarding and kenneling are a totally different animal (no pun intended). We currently do not provide in-home boarding services, nor do we have a facility in which we kennel dogs. However, we gladly provide references to help you take the guess work out of finding a top-notch business that does provide these services!
