Pet medications – If your pets are on any medications, please have the medications out so we can verify the dosage and collect instructions for administering meds.

Alarm systems – if you have an alarm system on your home, depending on the service provider you can set a unique alarm code for our use.  We don’t want to know or have your master code.  Please have this alarm code set up prior to your New Client Interview, as we will ask you to show us how to arm/disarm the alarm system.
