Frequently Asked Questions

Try The Urban Tailz Way

Requesting services weeks in advance, having to buy your pet care visits in packages, or needing to hit a weekly quota of dog walks? Do you have to decide days in advance whether you’ll need to request services or not?

Sign up with UT and gain the flexibility you need with quick and painless scheduling. Request services when you need them, even last-minute. Cancel scheduled events up to 2 hours before your time window at no charge.

Have you worried about if your pet was cared for, or have you not been able to get in touch with anyone to give you an answer? Felt like communication was lacking with your previous pet care company, or it took too long for your pet sitter to send updates?

Urban Tailz uses the Time to Pet© app that provides detailed visit reports and easy chat-like communication all in the convenience of an iPhone or Android app. We believe it is the best dog walking app on the market.

Do you know who’s going to show up to your home to care for your pet(s)? Are there different dog walkers showing up all the time without ever knowing who will be walking your pet(s) on a given day?

Urban Tailz provides the same daily dog walker for your pet(s). If your dog walker ever needs a day off, we will send updates letting you know someone else is coming that day. That way you’re never surprised.

Worried about who has keys to your home at any given moment? Has your pet sitter ever lost your keys? Maybe you’ve been locked out of your home in the past and had to call a locksmith. What if things were easier?

Urban Tailz provides our clients with their own lockbox which can be set with any 4-digit code the client wishes so they have access to their keys at all times. The lockbox is their’s to keep, and we will replace the box free of charge if it breaks.

Ever seen other Chicago dog walkers walking dogs with harnesses on backwards or not on properly? There are so many different harnesses and collars on the market that it’s impossible for pet care companies to train staff on all of them. A harness/collar that is not secured properly can lead to injury or escape.

Urban Tailz staff members are supplied with Weiss Walkie leashes that double as a harness that wraps around your dog. They are easy to put on and are extremely secure. We use these leashes during all our pet walking services except for pets with special needs. Read more about The Weiss Walkie Leash.
