Everything You Need to Know

Should we do a meet and greet?
Meet and greets are always an option, but not required! They are a quick evaluation at your home, the dog park, or other outdoor location of your choice to ensure the sitter and your furry friend will get along! It's also a great way to show the sitter your pet's routine so we ensure they are as comfortable as possible while you are away.
How do you know the other dogs in the group session will get along with my dog?
Before each group session, the staff at Alpine Sitting Company carefully evaluate your pet (and the other's in the same session) and do our best to ensure compatibility.
For the group play, how many dogs do you watch at once?
We limit each group session to 4 maximum pets per session. This ensures attention and focus is on your pet at all times. Depending on the pups in your session, they may go on an outdoor adventure (winter and summer!) or to a fenced in dog-park.
