If you have received a booking through Gudog, there are a few things that you must know so that the client will continue to entrust the care of their dog to you in the future:
- Don't look after more than 3 dogs at the same time
We know you have room in your heart for many more, but Gudog allows the care of a maximum of 3 dogs per stay. Of course, only if you can guarantee care for all of them and you have previously checked that all dogs are sociable and compatible with each other. Always inform your client about the character of the dogs you have at home, it should be their decision and not yours whether or not their dog can live with others. In addition, we recommend a prior meeting, after confirming the booking, to ensure that the stay will be comfortable for all parties.
Remember that we are the alternative to a kennel, so we offer exclusive care for each dog, both in the accommodation and on walks.
- Keep the owner informed daily
As dog owners, nothing calms us down more than receiving a nice photo of our dog when we have left them with a dog sitter. To know that our dog is sleeping calmly on the sofa or having a great time walking or playing is a great comfort. We want our clients to feel the same when leaving their dog with a Gudog dog sitter. Use all the methods you have available (whatsapp, email, text message etc).
- Invite the dog owner to visit your house
This way they will know where their dog is going to be staying and it will reassure them about the quality of care you will give their dog and that they aren´t going to be staying in a gloomy, dangerous place. Moreover, they will be able to warn you about things that may be in reach of their dog which they have a weakness for.
- Inform the Gudog team about any concerns you have
Remember that the dog owner will be on holiday or working; you mustn't constantly interrupt them with questions, doubts or worries. However, don't hesitate to contact us, you will not disturb us!
Let us know about any strange behaviour to decide whether or not to inform the dog owner. It is our job.
