YBFF'S NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

A Reminder of YBFF's Cancellation Policy

July 2013

With summer here and the holiday seasons coming up, we are going to firmly adhere to our cancellation policy effective July 1, 2013.

Our scheduling is done several days in advance and when we slot pet sitting service or dog walking and its cancelled at the last minute, we are unable to fill that spot. This creates not only a loss for the company but for the individual staff member that was assigned to that service.

The cancellation fee also helps cover administration costs that are incurred when services are booked and scheduled.

Following is a list of our fees and the guideline of times when a fee is assessed:

  • Dog Walking with less than 4 hours notice $15.00 flat fee
  • Pet Sitting without 7 days prior notice 25% of estimated job total
  • Booking less than 24 hours During A HolidayPeriod 15%
  • Pet Sitting during a holiday period (if a holiday falls within that service) without 7 days prior and notice 40% of estimated job total.
  • Overnight Pet Sitting with less than 14 days confirmed prior notice 50% of job (our overnight staff commits to the specific job and have to turn down other jobs)
  • Overnight during a holiday period without 14 days notice 75% of job

The following is a reminder of other charges that might affect you:

  • Not calling YBFF office to leave message home when you arrive home and YBFF makes a visit $20.00
  • Key pick up or drop off after initial service $15.00
  • Additional meetings requested after our initial/first meeting $19.00

Thank you, and we hope everyone has a wonderful summer!

A Bit of Fun! (And A Tip)

March 2013

Dogs get lots of smells from the ground. When snow covers the ground, it's much more difficult for dogs to get the usual smells that give them information about the world. In the winter make sure your dog always wears a leash and his name tags because if he were to get lost, it might be harder for him to find his way home using the usual smells for clues.

A Bit of Fun!

February 2013

Walks are good for people but great for dogs Walking your dog can literally save its life, according to a study presented in 2010 by dog-walking researcher Rebecca Johnson at the University of Missouri.
Johnson's team conducted a study of dogs at shelters: Half were randomly selected for five walks a week by elderly human volunteers, while the canine control group "sat glumly in their cages," says Hal Herzog at Psychology Today. "The results were impressive," if sad for the control group: 75 percent of the walked dogs were adopted into permanent homes, versus 35 percent of the not-walked; 9 percent of the walked were euthanized, compared with 27 percent of the control group. Elderly dog-walkers benefit, too, according to Johnson. They become fitter and healthier than those who don't walk, and even those who walk with human friends.

Give us a call to make sure your dog is getting the walks it needs - 303-692-1140

Cats have better memories than dogs.
Tests conducted by the University of Michigan concluded that while a dog's memory lasts no more than 5 minutes, a cat's can last as long as 16 hoursóexceeding even that of monkeys and orangutans.

Have fun!

Schedule Holiday Services Now!

November 2012

We still have availability for holiday services, but because we want to give the best service possible, we do not overload our staff during this busy time of the year. We encourage you to schedule your services sooner rather than later because we do fill up quickly!

This includes overnight services too. We currently do have overnight availability in addition to dog walking and pet sitting. But due to it's popularity, we can't promise these services will be available closer to the holiday.

Give us a call to get on the calendar! 303-692-1140

Also, don't forget your walkers and pet sitters this holiday season, gratuities are optional but greatly appreciated!

We know how busy the Christmas season is for everyone, and with so much going on it is easy for things to slip our minds, but please remember if you have service with us booked and circumstances change, please let us know. Our walkers and sitters are on tight schedules, and time is precious. There are also other furry friends out there who may appreciate a visit that opens up because of your cancellation. To that end, here is a reminder of our holiday cancellation policies:

  • Pet sitting less than 7 days notice = 40% cancellation fee.
  • Overnights less than 14 days notice = 75% cancellation fee.
  • We also will be charging an extra 20% if requesting service with less than 48 hours notice for any type service.

All that leaves us to say, is that we hope you have a wonderful Christmas season, and please do not hesitate to call us if we can help you in any way.

Howl-o-ween Pet Safety Tips

October 2012

Halloween is a fun day for families, but it can be a stressful or even dangerous day for pets. In order to make it an enjoyable and safe experience for pets, here are a few tips from Banfield the Pet Hospital to keep in mind.

1. Keep your pet away from the front door

Dogs in particular, may feel the need to protect their home and may bite your bizarre-looking visitors, or become frightened.

2. Ensure decorations cannot be pulled down

Your pet could become injured or even entangled and cause harm to themselves in their panic to get free. 

3. Be careful of pets around candles and lit pumpkins

Pets are attracted to bright lights in a darkened room. Candles can be easily knocked over, spilling hot wax onto furniture and carpet, and potentially causing a fire. Curious kittens especially run the risk of getting badly burned.

4. Do not take your cat or dog with you in the car while your kids go trick-or-treating.

It can be very frightening to a pet to sit in a dark car while scary creatures of every size and shape walk by. Your normally friendly pet can become aggressive & protective.

5. Do not give your pet candy

  • Chocolate contains theobromine, a substance that can be lethal if ingested by your pet.
  • Sticks on caramel apples can be swallowed and cause damage to internal organs or choking.
  • Packaging can cause choking or intestinal blockage. Foil wrappers can become as dangerous as razors when swallowed.

6. Keep your pet inside

There are plenty of stories of vicious pranksters who have teased, injured, even stolen pets that are left in their yards or allowed to roam outside on this night.

Beat Kennel Cough with YBFF

August 2012

One of the BEST reasons to use in-home pet care is the high risk of kennel cough found in situations where multiple dogs are in close proximity for an extended amount of time.

Our friends at the Pet Health Network explain that Kennel cough is an infectious bronchitis that could be compared to a cold with a scratchy throat in people. The most common symptom of canine kennel cough is a harsh, hacking cough that sounds as if something is stuck in your dogís throat.

Keeping your dog at home while you are away can help beat the chances of your dog catching kennel cough, because as the Pet Health Network tells us, dogs in highly populated situations such as boarding facilities, doggy day care, and dog parks are most likely to get kennel cough, which can be transmitted by air or by contact with infected surfaces. Puppies and younger dogs are at the greatest risk, but older dogs can also become infected. 

Read more of the Pet Health Network's article on kennel cough HERE.

Using YBFF's services allows you to keep your dog at home while you are away, and in turn helps prevent the chances of your dog catching kennel cough. Call us at 303.692.1140 or schedule service online here.

Saving Your Pet With CPR

July 2012

Itís not a scenario you want to imagine: finding your dog unconscious. Finding your pet not breathing, or heart not beating is a scary thought, but if you stay calm, there are things you can do. If possible, have another person call your veterinarian while you perform CPR.

Animals Need Help And Compassion Facebook Page has a helpful image that will provide the key steps you need to perform if you find yourself in this precarious position. Click the image below and a printable version of how to perform CPR will open. Print it, and put it on your fridge!

YBFF has New Policies and Forms

May 2012

New Communications Policy

**Note: This policy ONLY affects pet sitting and walking clients, this policy does NOT affect overnight clients.**

We understand the importance of communication when it comes to our clients and their pets. We also understand that knowing things went well on a pet sitters first visit to our clients' homes is critical to their peace of mind and our level of service. With that in mind, our pet sitters will no longer be texting clients when they arrive at their homes. Clients will now receive an email from our office (upon request) during regular business hours to communicate that all is well. Please know that if anything is wrong, we will contact you immediately via the number you have provided, or via the emergency contact you have provided.

If an evening visit (after 5pm) is the first visit to your home, you will receive an email the next morning by 8am. Every morning and throughout the day all staff members review schedules and/or changes and any discrepancies that are reported to YBFF. By routing all communication through the office, we ensure that management is aware of any issues while at the same time protecting the privacy of our clients and staff. If you would like additional updates through the duration of your service, please make a request through the office prior to your service, and we will accommodate your communication needs.

New Forms in Document Library

In our continued effort to provide the best possible service, we have added two new forms to our Document Library for our clients to fill out prior to service. We now have an Injury/Illness Report Status Form and a Medication Instruction Form. These forms should be filled out prior to service, and enables our team to monitor the types of medications animals require, while also providing a record for our office so we don't miss anything. These forms also benefit our clients so they know when medication was given. To see or download these new forms, Click Here.

We appreciate your understanding, and strive to continue providing top quality care to all of our clients.

Sincerely,

Janice Fehrman-Nickoloff
Owner/Founder

Holiday Tips

December 2011

Say NO to Mistletoe

Holly, when ingested, can cause pets to suffer nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Mistletoe can cause gastrointestinal upset and cardiovascular problems. And many varieties of lilies, can cause kidney failure in cats if ingested. Opt for just-as-jolly artificial plants made from silk or plastic, or choose a pet-safe bouquet.

Chocolate Toxicity

Keep the sweets in the stockings! Chocolate is toxic to dogs, cats, and other pets. Depending on the type and amount ingested, chocolate can cause vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity, panting, abnormal heart rhythm, tremors, seizuresóand even death in severe cases.

Your Best Friend's Friend Adds New Team Members

July 2010

Your Best Friend's Friend, a locally owned and operated full service pet care provider, announced this month that they have added two new members to the YBFF team. The growth of clientele and the recent expansion into Highlands Ranch, Colorado, has increased the company's need to add care takers to their staff. The company welcomes Jennifer Brown and Lindsey Bowman to the team.

Jennifer Brown, full time pet sitter and dog walker, brings tremendous knowledge and experience in dog and cat care, extensive training of medical practices and proper handling of extreme emergencies. Growing up, Jennifer's father operated a privately owned feline and canine rescue center, where she not only gained extensive knowledge and passion for all types of animals, but also began to raise and show her own rabbits and horses. Beginning at age 9, Jennifer raised mini Rex rabbits for show as well as improved breeding techniques, and has made remarkable progress in the development of rabbit genetics and nutrition.

Lindsey Bowman is a Colorado native, currently residing in Denver. She graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with a Bachelor's degree in marketing, and works as a marketing manager for a software company in Golden, Colorado. Lindsey grew up surrounded by and caring for animals, as her father is a veterinarian. In her free time Lindsey is extremely active, with a passion for yoga, running, volleyball and snowboarding in the winter. She is also very passionate and involved in health and fitness, and is a health and fitness writer and consultant for a local online publication. Lindsey helps YBFF with overnight care and fill-in help.

Both women are very excited to be a part of the YBFF team, and look forward to contributing to YBFF's quality care and dedication to excellence.


Your Best Friends Friend Expands Service into Highlands Ranch, Colorado

June 2010

Your Best Friend's Friend, a locally owned and operated full service pet care provider, announced this month that their growth and success in the Denver community and surrounding areas has enabled YBFF to expand their service boundaries to include Northwest Highlands Ranch. In addition to their recent expansion, YBFF serves clients in South Denver, Greenwood Village, Cherry Hills, and parts of Centennial and Littleton.

In recent years, YBFF has grown to a team of twelve team members. Thorough background checks are performed on each employee and all are trained in animal first aid, including injections and CPR. YBFF is insured, bonded and an accredited member of Pet Sitters International. Prior to each job, YBFF conducts an initial new client meeting to discuss the specific needs of the pets and owners.

In addition to the basic duties of feeding and caring for pets, house care is also included. YBFF brings in mail, takes out the trash, waters plants and provides daily notes to the pet owners to recount the visits.

YBFF offers a full range of pet care services - from a quick mid afternoon break or dog walks of any length, to full pet sitting care when owners are out of town. Additionally, YBFF provides care for horses, birds, and small animals. Overnight services, errands, and pet chauffeuring are also available. While some animals only require one visit per day, others need two or more. "We tailor our visits to your pet's specific needs," says YBFF founder, Janice Fehrman - "And we're always willing to go beyond the call of duty to ensure clients can be worry free when away from home."

According to the American Humane Society, pets are happiest when they are at home, surrounded by familiar sights and smells. For Janice Fehrman, the owner and founded of Your Best Friend's Friend, true happiness comes from pet ownership and the interaction with animals. "YBFF knows animals are much more than pets; they are family members," said Fehrman. "That's why choosing quality pet care is so important."

"YBFF went above and beyond taking care of our pets, by taking care of our flooding basement while we were out of town," said Shelly, a customer of YBFF. "And the pets were happy too!"
