Prior to services being provided, a complimentary in-home orientation with you and your pet(s) is required.  This allows us to interact with your pet(s), for us to discuss what services you will need and any special needs or habits your pet(s) may have.  A  service contract will be completed and your door keys(2) will be obtained.  See rates for Key Service below if not available at time of orientation. Two keys are required so that one key is always available for back-up team support should an emergency prevent your primary Pet Sitter from servicing a visit. Many clients leave their key on file with Country Hospetality for future pet sits.  All keys are kept in a locked safebox without your personal information for the highest security.

Key Pick Up Rate 

 If keys are not provided at time of orientation to your pet sitter a standard pet visit, $17.00 is scheduled. Upon request we can use this time as another visit to interact with your pet(s) before you leave town.  


A set of keys must be issued to Country Hospetality upon signing a service agreement. Locks or doors that are not to be used must be specified on your service agreement. It’s a good idea to even tape over locks or doors that should not be used to avoid confusion. Your key, while in our possession, is kept in a locked safe, separate from our client files.
Key return— We offer a READYKEY program and will keep your key in our locked safe for future trips. Or, you may schedule a time to stop by and pick up your keys upon your return. We also offer return of keys by regular mail in a padded envelope ($7 signature on key release statement is required) or a standard visit fee to drop off your keys at a time and date specified by client and agreed upon by Country Hospetality.  Fees for key return will be waived for long term stays of  12 or more visits by means determined by Country Hospetality.  We aim to please and will be glad to work out any details with you.
