The price alone doesn't tell you much but a company's pricing philosophy is one of the best ways to determine their level of honesty and integrity.MerryMutt.com
has a different philosophy on setting the price for group walks.
Our method, variable pricing focuses on maximizing the value you get for your hard earned money.
MerryMutt.com doesn't have a weekly minimum service requirement
We offer our base price of $14 to everyone even if we walk your dog daily or occasionally. We don't believe that you should have to commit to 4-5 dogs a week in order to get the best price.
So how do you buy dog walks?
You simply deposit money into your account and we will subtract the cost of each dog walk from your account in real time.
We will remind you when you need to add more money to your account.
How to fund your account?
Payment must be received by MerryMutt.com before you can schedule any service.
If you use our services regularly then you will need to deposit 1 weeks worth of funds into your account to cover the price of the services you'll be using for the week.
Most dog walking companies only accept payment in the form of cash, CQ or email money transfer. They don't accept payment via credit card because it's very expensive for small businesses to accept payment via credit cards (they charge the retailer 2%-4% per transaction).
We are a little different.
We accept all types of payments from cash, CQ, email money transfer, credit cards and PayPal.
In order for MerryMutt.com to have the best prices in the dog walking industry, we pass on the payment processing charges to our clients.
If you decide to pay via cash, CQ or email money transfer then there are no additional charges.
If you want to have the convenience of paying with a credit card or PayPal then we will deposit the amount we receive from the credit card company or PayPal.
Credit card fees processed with SquareUp :
2.65% per swiped transaction,
3.4% +$0.15 per keyed-in transaction, or
2.65% per invoice transaction.
PayPal: 2.9% + $0.30
Is Your Dog Walker Walking The Walk?
Every dog walker should use PetCloud because it makes the dog walker more accountable to you and the dogs they are walking.
We us PetCloud on all of our dog walks and it enables us to keep precise data for all of our walks. You will see exactly how much time we spend on our walks, you'll see a map of where your dog was walked, you'll see if your dog spent more time in the car waiting or walking and playing. You'll also know in real time whenever we pick up and drop off your dog and if they had a potty break.
I created variable pricing to offer the fairest price system in the dog walking industry. If we need to shorten the length of the dog walk for any reason (emergencies, inclement weather causing us to shorten walk times, anything) then we will adjust the bill according to the length of the time the dog walker spent with your dog.
We use PetCloud and that allows us to know exactly how long your dog was walked. If we notice that your dog walker shortened the walks by 5 minutes then we will adjust your bill to reflect the lost time and we will have a talk with the dog walker to find out why they shortened the walk times.Read more on Variable Pricing
There will be times when we need to shorten the walk times and even cancel the group walk sessions. In the case where we cancel the group walks, the dog walker will visit your house and give your dog a potty break. We will reduce the fee to $10, that's the price of our potty break service.
