My husband and I love the pups we care for in our private home ,  we opened up our home for dogs so that we could  help those who wanted to have  peace of mind when they traveled and offer the highest level of care they could have. Yes I need the income as I don't have a pension or social security , this is what I do for a living. I consider it an honest job that puts food on our table. I am passionate about the care my human clients receive and the care and love I provide for their 4 -legged friends.
 In the 12 years in business I have always been up-front and honest and always my clients are given a copy of my policies to sign and receive another upon booking. I hide nothing. And, although I have a cancellation policy I have never  charged anyone that had a valid reason for a cancellation such as an illness or emergency.

Stating that" its none of my business" and calling me an offensive name just does not seem valid or fair to me.

We have a 7 day cancellation policy as we  do accept a limited 1-3 pets. I being the owner have the experience and  knowledge of animal behavior & on occasion may take 4-5,  never do I accept 10-12 animals even on days that drop and pick up may overlap. And all my clients are aware of this and trust my judgement and expertise. 

Another reason for my cancellation policy is so that I and my host families  have ample time to re-book those dates with another client and because we frequently decline personal activities for the dates you secure in order to be home to care for our clients pets. 
With 2 days notice I got from this client I am unable to book another client or may have turned away another that really needed me.

Our guarantee to our clients when they book is that we will be there for them and will not cancel. And we will love your pet and care for them as if there were our own.

I am up-front with all my clients , everyone gets a copy of my policy from day one. This client signed this agreement ,received our policy each time she booked about 8 times so therefore should be very aware of my policy.

"Where your pet is part of our family"

The funny thing is she calls me a crook yet she has a photo on her Facebook page on board an airplane the same day she cancelled with me citing " a change of plans".

And that makes me a crook ?

My husband and I love the pups we care for , we make many sacrifices in sharing and opening up our home so that we can give clients an option to travel knowing that they pets are safe and in the care of someone loving  . We have done so for 12 years and have an excellent reputation.  So I feel a need to share  what really happened here with this client.
About a month ago this client booked  Aug 20th-23rd. She then emailed 2 days before the pet care was to begin stating " her plans had changed". 

 I sent a nice email asking her the reason for the cancellation. My thought was maybe it was due to an illness or emergency for which I would always be reasonable and make allowances and not because now a friend or family member was going to care for the pet instead. I like being fair but expect the same in return. Her reply to me was" it's none of your business" .
I emailed her back advising how difficult last minute cancellations are for me since this is my only source of income and it really does put food on my families table, she emailed me back with a very vulgar reply.

We have a 7 day cancellation policy ( 14 on major holidays) because we offer a very personalized service. We do take a very limited amount of pets into our homes. My host take 1- 3 dogs (most of the time its 1). I being the owner have the experience and  understanding of animal behavior & on occasion may take 4-5,  never do I accept 10-12 animals even on days that drop and pick up may overlap.
