Pawlkies Pricing Policy

 

Pawlkies Home Boarding

 

What Constitutes a Boarding Period?

 

  • A boarding period is the unit of time that starts on the day of drop-off and ends at noon of every subsequent day.

  • The first day is always charged. 

  • The last day will NOT be charged when your pet is picked up in the morning hours.

  • The last day WILL be charged when your pet is picked up in the afternoon/evening hours.  

  • Afternoon/evening hour pickups may stay until the next morning at no extra charge since last day is already charged.

 

 

Examples:

 

  • Drop off time: 6 PM on a Monday. Pickup time: 4 PM the following Wednesday: 
    Total boarding periods: 3 (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday)

 

  • Drop off time: 9 AM on a Monday. Pickup time: 12 Noon on a Thursday
    Total boarding periods: 3 (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday)

 

Explanation:

 

Both of the above examples incur the same charges. In the first, we must reserve the space for the entire day on Monday. Whether you drop off your pet as we open or before we close, our "cost" is the same since we don't provide partial-day boarding.

 

In addition, picking up your pet on Wednesday afternoon instead of morning means that the space will remain empty that night as it is unlikely it will be filled in the last minutes before closing, therefore, PM pickups incur in a new period's charge.

 

Example two shows the longest time your pet can stay on a three-period charge.

 

 

Note:

 

Many establishments charge both for the first and last day regardless of times. We tried to "split the difference" by not charging for the last day if your pet is picked up during morning business hours.

 

We've tried many different pricing policies and hours over time and none is perfect for every case. We settled for the one that seem to work for the majority of our customers. Just remember that if "this time" it seems unfair for your case, the "next time" it may work to your advantage.
