Usually, we acquire house keys at your initial consultation. If this has not occurred, you have two options for key arrangements. We offer key pickup & drop off services for each session ($5 each) or we can keep your key on file for future pet sitting sessions at no charge. We can also make a copy of your key for ($5). If we keep a copy of your key, it will be kept with your pet sitter, or at your request, can be kept with Coastal Pet Sitters’ trusted key holder. Your key will never be labeled with your address on it. You may also opt for a hiding place or provide a lock box. For safety reasons, we will not lock your key in your home on our final visit as this leaves us with no way to return to continue caring for your pets in the event you are unable to make it home as planned. We may, however, leave your key with another person or neighbor if this person is on your client forms and is prearranged.
