Company Policies

Cancelation Policy

It is not unusual for trip plans to change at the last minute. However, please understand that Miles Per Mutt LLC may have turned away business in order to accommodate your requested services. Therefore, with the exception of severe weather, life-threatening emergencies, or a death in the family, cancellations with less than 3 days’ notice prior to your trip will result in you being billed 20% of the total invoice for the scheduled pet care. There are no refunds, credits, or changes to costs once pet sitting has begun.

With the exception of severe weather, life-threatening emergencies, or a death in the family, any cancellations with less than 7 days’ notice prior to a major holiday (ie: Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year's Eve, New Years Day, Easter, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day and Thanksgiving) will result in you being billed 20% of the total invoice for the scheduled pet care. We request your understanding that Holiday travel is a peak service time for pet care.

Keys Policy

 Miles Per Mutt LLC requests one (1) set of keys at the time of the Pre-Service Meeting. Miles Per Mutt LLC requests a key for all pet sitting assignments, even if you have provided a garage or door access code, to protect your pet in the event of a power outage or garage door malfunction. It is highly recommended that your key is entered into our secure key system for future use, however your key may be returned at the end of service. Please let us know which you prefer. If you do not have an extra key to keep on file, we can have one made for a $5 fee. All keys are given a random number that is unrelated to any of your personal information. It is marked with a key tag and kept in a secured locked key box when not in use. If making a new key for Miles Per Mutt LLC, please check that it works before our Pre-Service Meeting. Leaving a copy of your key anywhere on your property for M/M to use is done “at your own risk,” and not recommended. If you choose to only give us your door/garage access code, Miles Per Mutt LLC is not responsible for any losses that you might incur if the Pet sitter cannot access the home due to power outages or malfunctions.
