Payment:

WEEKLY DOG WALKING: Payment for regularly scheduled dog walks (e.g. while you’re at work) is due weekly. At the end of the week you will be emailed a PayPal invoice. I only use PayPal Invoicing for record keeping. Please see preferred payment below.

PET SITTING/OVERNIGHTS: Payment is due prior to start of service. @7 days prior to your departure, you will be emailed an invoice via PayPal.

PREFERRED METHOD OF PAYMENT: Cash, Check (payable to “Rose Dybel”), or Zelle (almost all banks use Zelle. Simply go into your account, click “Zelle” and it will prompt you for my phone number 423-645-7307 to pay). These methods are all free.

If you choose to use PayPal, Venmo, or CashApp an additional 6% fee will be added, as that is what they charge me to use their services.

6% – payment methods such as PayPal, Venmo or Cash App because that is what they charge me as a business (NOTE: no fee added for cash, check or Zelle)
