Do you charge for more than one dog or if I have dogs and cats and want you to look after them all when I go on vacation?
If dogs are from same household then no. We usually recommend a longer walk time if more than one or two dogs to ensure they all get a quality walk.

This is a very cost effective way of caring for you pets when you go away on vacation.
