Bed & Biscuit Service Agreement

Alternative Pet Care’s Bed & Biscuit service is a unique pet care option for the pampered pet. Your pet will be lovingly cared for in the home of one of our professional pet sitters. A Pet Profile of your pet and his/her routine will help your B&B host maintain your pet’s routine.

The fee for Bed & Biscuit service is $51.99 per night for one dog and $75.99 per night for 2 dogs. Bed & Biscuit service includes a minimum of: the dinner-time pet care routine, the “good night” pet care routine, the overnight stay, and the “good morning” pet care routine. Most of our B&B hosts are in & out during the day while others work a typical work day. We will match you with the most appropriate host for your pet. Check-in & check-out times are pre-scheduled with your B&B host. Drop-off times on check-in day are scheduled between 3-7 p.m. Pick-ups are scheduled prior to 3 p.m. on the day of check-out. Pick-ups after 3 p.m. will be billed an additional $15 per hour.

Bed & Biscuit reservations require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of the booking. The balance will be due on check-in day. All payments are processed using a major credit card.

Sleeping Arrangements:  Please bring your dog’s bed, crate, anything that he/she is accustomed to sleeping on or in. Your pet may be sleeping in your host’s bed, but it is always a good idea to bring the things your pet is familiar with from home.

Food:  Please bring enough food to last the duration of your pet’s stay. We recommend measuring the dry food into individual baggies—one for each meal. A.P.C. has permission to purchase food and/or other necessary supplies in the event that such food and/or supplies are depleted when A.P.C. is performing its pet care services. The Pet Owner is liable for the cost of food and/or supplies, plus a $20 fee for each shopping trip.

Medication: Please bring enough medication to last the duration of your absence. Include detailed instructions and your vet information on your Pet Profile.

Veterinary Care: Your A.P.C. host has permission to take Owner’s pet(s) to a veterinarian of A.P.C’s choice in case of perceived illness, pain, or discomfort. Owner is liable for all veterinary expenses as well as transportation fees ($20/hour computed on a round trip basis).

Damage to furniture, rugs, etc.:  Pet Owner is responsible for damage to the host’s home and property caused by their pet when the A.P.C. host follows pet care guidelines, so please be honest during screening.

Pet Temperment & Behavior: The pet owner understands that their pet(s) have been approved to be a guest in an A.P.C. employee’s home based on their answers to the Pet Behavior Screening Questionnaire that A.P.C. keeps on file. Owner warrants that the pet(s) to be cared for do not have a history of vicious or violent behavior. Owner agrees to compensate A.P.C. for any damages suffered by them due to a breach of this warranty. Further, owner agrees to indemnify A.P.C. for any liability that may arise on their part due to vicious or violent behavior of the pet(s), whether or not a history of vicious & violent behavior exists, and whether or not such a history has been disclosed to A.P.C. Furthermore, the Owner will be responsible for any pet and/or human injuries or property damage that occurs as a result of misrepresenting their pet(s)’ behavior.

Care Instructions: Owner agrees to complete the A.P.C. B&B Pet Profile so that the A.P.C. host can maintain your pet’s daily routine. Your A.P.C. host will abide by your pet care instructions. So long as Owners instructions are followed, A.P.C. shall not be responsible or liable for any injury, illness, or death of any of the Owner’s pet(s) that may occur while the animals are in the care of the A.P.C. employee.
