Time is of the Essence
You will receive requests for service to your account email, so please turn on your notifications. Use the link to log into your Petz Pack inbox and respond according. Please ensure your notifications are set and respond within 3 hours.
Review the Dog's Information
Please always look up the status and information of the dog placing the service request using the provided search in your Petz Pack inbox. This could be a regular that has since been rejected or a new client requiring a meet and greet.
Is this a good fit?
We don't build a fast client base by cherry picking, but certain things may make this pup not a good fit for your location. Ensure you review the entire file.
Handling Repeats
If this is repeat, please check your calendar in your inbox to make sure you are within your current capacity limits and respond accordingly. A check indicates you accept, an x indicates you will pass the booking. Accepting will add the request to your calendar automatically.
Our Repeats May Want a Meet and Greet
Even though not required, some of our repeats may want to meet you first. It's very important to learn our safety procedures prior to performing a meet and greet. This is a process our clients have grown to know and love. Please review the meet and greet section carefully.
Handling New Clients
If the status of the dog reads 'No M&G', then this dog has not been screened for aggression. This is required for all client dogs new to our service and is good for all our supported locations. Please reach out in email to arrange privately and please add to your calendar manually.
Meet and Greet Requests
You may receive a meet and greet request directly from the website. This should be a client that does not have upcoming dates. Follow the instructions in the email to process. Ensure you modify the date to the agreed time prior to accepting so that your calendar will reflect the correct date.
Discourage Private Inquiries
Clients are known to check privately with hosts for availability prior to filing on site. Please inform your client this is an extra step. Our availability is on request, no matter how requested. Also mention it's easier for you to look in the system if they file the request appropriately.
Be a Team Player
Clients that file on the site first get Petz Main assistance for another location in the event a host is unavailable. Please don't cost your teammates money, you will also benefit from our overflow process.
What is Overflow?
When a host declines a booking, the request is shared internally with the team in the Google chat program. Please ensure you have this installed and notifications are on. Please check the dog info and status and provide a quick yes if you are available.
How to Handle
If the client approves of you as an alternate location, you will be forwarded the original request. Please note that amenity selections may be present that you do not offer. You can work this out privately with the client after the booking is approved in the system.
A Client Has Changed Their Booking
A client may need to change a request that you've already approved. We recommend they go through the system in the event they have a date change, amenity change and/or dog change so that it will update your calendar automatically. Drop off times and pick up times can be worked out privately.
Can You Accommodate the Changes?
Follow instructions to confirm/deny the request changes so that your calendar will remain current. If the client works anything out privately such as drop/pick times, you will need to modify your calendar manually.
A Client Has Cancelled Their Booking
A client has the option to cancel a booking and the host will be notified of the cancellation. The request will be removed from your calendar automatically.
Time Off
Please keep your calendar current by adding any time off that you plan. Please see the time off module in your Dashboard once you complete Orientation for more information.
Have a Stay that Didn't Go Well?
If you prefer not to have a dog at your location, or you feel that this dog needs a behavior evaluation from Petz Main, please add comments and flag the dog. This is one of the options on your Dashboard. Toggling a dog's status to the red x will alert Petz Main, NOT the client.
Let Us Handle Client Awareness
Please do not tell the client the dog is not welcome back to our service. A more experienced handler may have no issues or perhaps a host with a different environment will have better luck. Petz Pack reserves this right and will handle client awareness.
Reject List
Just because you've flagged a dog, doesn't mean they cannot book our service or you. Please keep a list of dogs that you prefer not to host and simply deny the request when it comes through. It may take this for Petz Main to get them on our schedule for an evaluation.
