Waggy Walkys Lockbox Policy

At Waggy Walky’s we highly recommend clients to utilize a key storage lockbox  to access your home. Lockboxes offer the most convenient and secure way to provide quality services to our clients.

The advantages of a lockbox:

  • Keys remain safely at your home, and not in the hands of your pet sitter. A secure lock box provides you with peace of mind.
  • In the event of an emergency or last minute dog walking request, our pet care specialists will have immediate access to your home.
  • Whenever you move, you can take the lock box with you.
  • The ability to change your lock box code whenever you need.
  • Lock boxes are designed to withstand the harshest of elements and theft.
