Services are scheduled in 3-hour timeframes starting from 7 AM to 7 PM (6:30 PM being the last appointment.) For example, a mid-day walk may be scheduled between 11 AM – 2 PM.   This allows for every pet to be logistically serviced.  Unfortunately, not every pup can get walked right at noon.

A $25.00 late fee may be added to your invoice for late payments. (Please don't make us do it.)

Tips are always appreciated! Our hard-working pack leaders keep 100% of their tips. If you'd like to leave a tip, you can do so in cash, PayPal, Venmo, Cash App, or Zelle, or include it with the invoice via credit card.



​Life happens, and plans change.  We will do our best to remain as flexible as possible for you and strive to give our clients their desired times.  Holidays are our highest peak times! We want to take care of all the fur babies, and to do so; please be mindful of our pack leaders and other clients when changing plans during the holidays.  A late cancellation is a missed opportunity for another pet. Let's play nice together and do our best to follow our cancellation policy.


Non-holiday –

A 24-hour notice is required to cancel services. A 50% refund is available for the first seven canceled calendar days from the cancellation request date. A 100% refund is available for any additional days. 


Holidays –

A full refund is available if canceled seven (7) days before the service begins (EDT/EST). If canceled later than seven (7) days before the service starts, a 50% refund is available for the first seven canceled calendar days from the cancellation request date. A 100% refund is available for any additional days.



  • ​Clients who cancel service per our cancellation policy will receive their refund or may opt to receive credit to their account for future reservations. Credits given will be held on account for six months. After six months, the credit will no longer be available.

  • No credits or refunds shall be issued due to the client's late departure or early return.



  • ​Our first Meet n Greet sessions are complimentary and are an excellent opportunity to discuss your pet care needs and learn more about our company and the pawsome services we offer our fur babies. Any new information about your pets or home can be updated on your account profile; however, if you require an additional visit, a 30-minute visit can be scheduled with a $25 fee plus $15 for every 15 additional minutes.

  • Due to unpredictable traffic, our pack leaders have a 30-minute window to arrive at the requested time.

  • RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC reserves the right to charge $25.00 per half hour or any portion thereof for additional time spent over the allotted time of the visit necessary for the care of the client's pet(s) and home. This includes service and time for the following but is not limited to overly soiled pet areas, all veterinary trips; pet illness; excessive clean-up resulting from pet incontinence, accidents, or frequent vomiting; complications administering medications; obtaining pet food, medicine, or supplies; wait time for emergency home repair; search for pet(s) that escaped confinement or leash, pet refusing to return to their confinement areas such as their crate, kennel, room, etc.

  • The client is responsible for all expenses incurred, such as purchasing supplies, pet food, or veterinarian bills accrued in their absence, and must reimburse RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC upon return.

  • Pets with extremely sharp nails pose a danger and health risk to themselves, other pets, and the pack leaders. A $25 fee per instance will be charged if our pack leaders incur injuries due to your pet's sharp nails.




  • ​Although all reasonable efforts will be made to provide the agreed-upon services, inclement weather (e.g., snow, ice, floods, etc.), national emergencies, acts of God, or other circumstances beyond our control may delay or prevent the pack leader's visit(s).  In such a case, the client and the emergency contact person will be notified so that other arrangements can be made, if necessary.

  • To ensure the safety of our pack leaders and the community, we initiate our Inclement Weather Plan when localities close schools due to potentially dangerous weather conditions. When prompted, we announce our Inclement Weather Plan for that day and specific weather concerns on our social media, website pages, and via email. During inclement weather, our midday dog walking services may be canceled, and our pet-sitting service schedules may be altered.

  • We ask that all clients provide us with an inclement weather emergency contact to care for their pets if we cannot access your home. Your emergency contact should be able to walk to your house and have working keys for entry. All visits that are canceled because of inclement weather are credited to your account for use toward future services.

  • We also ask that you consider your pet pack leader's safety by clearing steps and walkways of ice, snow, and debris and designating a neighbor to do so when traveling. Your pack leader can shorten exercise time during heavy rainfall, lightning, thunderstorms, extreme heat, or cold.  In such cases, exercise time will replace indoor playtime and TLC.



​There are several ways you can provide access to your home.

Lockbox with key (the most preferred method) –

  • ​A lock box with your house key (please test to make sure it works) must be accessible to the pack leader in the front of the home. Ensure it is in a place we can access easily during bad weather and dark hours. Regardless of whether we have a keypad, garage code, e-key, etc., a key must be available in case one of the electronic entrances fails.

  • We have available lock boxes for purchase at $25 per lock box.


A Key Copy –

  • ​You may provide 1 or 2 keys to be kept and managed by RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC.  One key will be with the assigned pack leader; the second key (if provided) will be secured in a locked box at our office.

  • If you prefer not to allow us to keep a copy of the key, we may leave the key in the manner of your choosing.  However, the client releases RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC, from all liabilities, responsibilities, and claims related to any incidents that may occur.   It's risky to leave it under a mat, and anyone can grab it after the pack leader goes, but we'll do it, and you assume all the risks and liabilities.  

  • Should keys become unusable, the lock malfunction, the client fails to leave a key, or for any other reasons beyond the pack leader's control, RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC has the authorization to employ the services of a locksmith to gain entry to a client's home on client's behalf.  The client will be responsible for all expenses incurred and reimburse RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC, with the credit card on file.

  • Keys may be left with a full-time concierge; however, the length of the visit will be affected by how long it takes for the concierge to provide the pet pack leader access to the home.

  • The keys will be kept on file for future services.

  • A $15 service charge will be added for keys to be dropped off at the end of services or picked up for subsequent appointments. Or, clients may drop off and pick up keys at a location convenient to the pack leader.

  • If the account is inactive for longer than one year, RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC, may destroy all keys and entry devices associated with that account.


Gate Access –

  • ​If you live in a gated community, you must provide a gate card remote or appropriate access codes. No exceptions unless the community doesn't allow them. We will not access your apartment/condo via a leasing office or by following someone through the gate. It makes us look like creepers.


House Alarms –

  • ​If you keep your alarms active during our visits, we must have the alarm codes, password, alarm company name, and phone number in our secure online reservation system. We will not be responsible for any false alarms if we do not have this information in our system. Alarms must be in good working condition with no numbers sticking or not working correctly. We would look like creepers!

  • If alarm information changes at any time, the client must update the information directly in the online profile or contact RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC office with the information.


Parking –

  • ​The client is responsible for providing reasonable parking options/access for pack leaders to provide services. When parking is unavailable on or near the property, RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC reserves the right to charge for additional time and cost of paid parking required to secure parking and walk to the client's property.


Other Visitors –

  • ​The client must inform RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC, if anyone else will have access to your home during our service period, i.e., house cleaners, realtors, repairers, friends/family, etc. Please inform them that we will be there as well.

  • Please be aware that shared entry will waive our liability insurance and bonding for your home and pets. RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC, shall not be held liable for any damages or loss incurred to your house or pets during any pet sitting schedule where someone other than RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC has access to your home.

  • The liability waiver does not apply to the client's emergency contact(s), as named in the client's profile as having a key to the client's home, with the understanding that said contact(s) will not be entering the client's home during the entire term RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC's visit schedule, unless called to the client's home, by a RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC representative, in the event of an emergency.



  • ​A client is responsible for updating their client information, including emergency contact information and pet details, including veterinarian information and feeding instructions. Pack leaders will follow these detailed instructions to provide the best care to your pets.

  • If you need your username or password reset, please let us know. Do not create a brand-new profile.



​For your pet's and others' safety, pets must have current vaccinations.  Should the pack leader be bitten or otherwise exposed to any disease or ailment received from the client's animal, the client will be responsible for paying all medical costs and damages incurred by the victim.  The client attests that all licenses and vaccinations required by the State of South Carolina and the city and/or county in which they reside are current according to law. Clients may add their pet(s) medical records and/or current vaccination certificates to their client portal profile by emailing these documents to



  • ​If a pet becomes ill while under the care of RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC, every attempt will be made to contact the client immediately and directly.

  • If there are special circumstances, these must be discussed before RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC takes the assignment. RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC, reserves the right to discontinue services if the pack leader is uncomfortable sharing.



  • ​Due to the extreme unpredictability of animals, RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC, and pack leaders cannot be held responsible for any unusual mishaps (i.e., pet's refusal to take medication, escaping from the yard, biting, eating, or destroying household items, damage to inside/outside of the home, personal injury/accidental death).  If the client requests pet(s) to have outside access, the client releases RubyRed's Pet Care, LLC, and pack leaders from all liability for loss, injury, or death to pet(s).  The client is liable for injury or damage to Third Parties and their pets.
