Wag Time’s facility in Arlington, Tx. is primarily an enrichment-based daycare facility so it makes sense to board our regular daycare customers when we can. However, we cannot board dogs who cannot/do not play in group sessions, unaltered adult dogs, or those who need to be monitored throughout the night.
Seeing a need for reliable pet-sitting services in the DFW area drove us to launch Wag Time-Pet Services in 2018 as complementary services to those offered in our facility. Through this division of our company, we provide dog walks, home visits, check ins, overnight pet-sitting, house-sitting and customized services as needed. Pet-sitting services are available for all types of pets and are designed to work in conjunction with our facility, if needed. For instance, your pet-sitter can bring your pet(s) to our facility for daycare during the day and keep them overnight for you or deliver them home to you if you are out late.
If your dog normally plays in one of our daycare groups, you are welcome to board in our facility when we have room. However, because space is limited, we highly recommend you have a Pet-Sitter lined up who can take your BFFs if/when we cannot or in case of an emergency when we are not open.
Pet-sitting might be a better option for you for many reasons, such as:
Do you need your dog(s) walked or let out when you’re stuck away from home too long? Once we have completed our initial meet and greet, you can rely on your sitter to walk your BFF when you can’t be there.
Whether it’s a dog, cat or other pet that doesn’t need someone to stay with them, we can check in on your pets for you when you're away. Your sitter can pop in and feed, fill waters, etc. and send you a report of how things are going.
If you want to travel but can’t take your BFF with you, consider boarding in a host’s home. Typically, hosts have their own pets, so there is someone to keep your pet company, as he/she fits right into the host’s daily schedule.
Does your BFF need a ride to daycare in the morning? What about a ride home if you have to work late? Finding a Pet-Sitter you trust BEFORE you need them is key for all types of situations!
If your pet(s) would do better in their own environment, without any other animals or disruption to their daily routine, this option allows your sitter to stay with your pet(s) in the comfort of their own home.
Once your initial questions have been answered, your choices in how to use us are unlimited. Working together, we will give you total peace of mind and your BFF the best care you can hope for!
To find a Pet-sitter, you can either choose a host based on what you know about them or you can simply enroll your animals and we will help you choose based on the types of pets you have, the number, their ages and requirements. We also need to know if you want walks, check ins, overnight stays or just daytime help. Budget can also be a consideration. Whatever your needs, we will help you find a solution.
We initially gather information and contact the Pet-sitter who will, in turn, contact you. We insist on a meet and greet for all parties involved. This is for your protection and peace of mind, as well as the safety of our staff and comfort of your pets. This can be done in your home or a neutral spot, but if you are choosing your pet's to go to a hosts home, you will need to meet there. The host may ask you the same questions we have already covered. Please don’t be alarmed. We do share information but sometimes they need to double check or confirm something we have told them. Also, they may notice behaviors or things you say that require clarification.
Once you and your pet sitter agree to terms (dates/price/etc.) we will email you an invoice and we do require all Pet-sitting services be paid in advance of services provided. In the unlikely event of any extenuating circumstances/expenses (run out of food, your trip home is delayed, etc.), your pet sitter will reach out to you for instructions.
Whatever the service you choose, the enrollment is done via our online portal linked to our software (Gingr). Once you have set up your account, uploaded vaccination records and signed our service agreement, you can login to your account at any time to check reports, update records, requests visits, etc.
Because we are an enrichment-based daycare, we spend all day with the dogs making sure they are happy, safe and well-adjusted. For this reason, we ask that you schedule tours and evaluation days in advance so that we may have an additional staff member present to work with you and your pet(s). We don't want you to feel rushed if you have questions, nor do we want to leave our group players unattended.
