How do you do the grandfather rate. I was thinking of raising rates but not to my current clients. Do we need to contact Rover?

I am going on vacation for a week and have a few dog walking regulars that might look elsewhere as they need the walks but i don't want to lose them to competition. I don't really know any other dog walkers or Rover does Rover help or should i contact Rover people in my area?

2017-01-19 10:33:25 -0600 answered a question How do you enter an apartment with a 45lb dog that my be aggressive when owner not home?

Update on the growling dog...it took some time but we are great friends now...the first time i went by myself was scary and he was not sure why i was there and barked a lot but I stayed at his level and talked with him, waited him out, watched his body behavior (he never came towards me barking and always backed away when i came towards him) I waited for him to come to me..got his collar on and off we went :) I have been walking him for a couple of months now and i have found he is very vocal :) every time i go in he barks for a while ( now i think he is just excited) and he is becoming one of my favorite dogs to walk :) especially with all the work we both put in to overcome fears.

I have a new client with a approx 45lb dog that is mixed breed. They just moved from home with backyard to apartment (2weeks) and he is protective of owner, he growled a little at me at meet and greet but we went for walk and spent time with owner. I am concerned when i go back alone to get him for a walk he may not be happy to see me and may be a little aggressive...any suggestions on how to enter home?

2016-08-29 13:46:38 -0600 asked a question Can i sign up with Rover if I don't want to offer boarding or daycare, just walking and home visits?

I live in a rented house and cannot offer boarding and not necessarily doggie day care. I would just like to walk other dogs and home visits..is that ok?
