Canine Consultation – $50 – This is our initial meeting. This is the most important step of the mutt-match process. I have my finger on the pulse of the animal community, I need to know more about you. This consultation covers quite a range of information and is still tailored to the client. We can go over:
After this point, I have three packages you can choose from.
This is what I call an email service. I take the information I have gathered from our initial consultation and I do most of my work over the phone and on line. This means I call or email the shelters, and get a good idea of any dogs they might have to fit your family. Once I narrow down the search I will email the bios and pictures to your email and in the end it is your final decision which dog you pick and your job to contact the shelter. If you need help with applications or have any questions then I can always be reached by phone or email.
This package is a little more involved. I will do a lot more driving and actually meet and test the dogs before bringing your family in. I also work more on the adoption end, convincing shelters to hold dogs that I think might be a potential match for my clients. I will also go with you when you meet the dog so we can analyze and see how the dog initially bonds with your family. The initial meeting between the clients and the dog is very important because it allows for you to get a feel of how the dog will interact with your family and I can see how the personalities of your family and the dog match up. If you already own a dog, this package includes you bringing your current dog to test compatibility. Once your papers are signed and you bring the sweet pup home that is when my services for this package are complete.
This is the complete package. I do all the steps above plus I will be looking at shelters farther away and dedicating much more of my time. This also allows you to choose from the following:
There are other additional things you can add to the packages if you feel you need them. These will be charged as training sessions and are $30 for each hour. These things include
* If you choose to just do the $50 Consultation, then change your mind within 30 days and want to do a package, I will apply that $50 you previously paid to either the Premium Paws or Fetching Full Service Package (excludes Bark Basic)
I live in north central Massachusetts, I have no problem driving to wherever you are to help at any time. My attention to detail and my services have no mileage limit. The only thing I ask is that clients over 60 miles away, add an additional $15 to the initial consultation fee, $50 for the Premium and $75 for the Full Service. This only covers my gas bill in this case.
