I like the different services you offer to really make as much potential profit as you can per stop.

Would the dog waste cleaning be an add on for all the packages? Have you thought about how much you would charge?

Yea I'm going to offer the dog clean-up as an optional for any package. If i'm there cutting grass to I figure $10 would be enough to cover it. Unless they have alot of dogs it should only take like 5min to clean up a yard.

Will you be charging an additional fee per extra dog? I have seen that on sites from businesses that offer that service.

Yea. I just found a website that I put on the doggie franchise thread. I was looking at it and they charge for multiple dogs. They also have a first time charge and for the customers who don't want to sign a contract he charges more. I never thought there was money in poop. But it looks like it would be great filler work.

I haven't manage to get those packages going but i'm hoping I can get those going this year ! I would have to change my marketing a bit but I don't have the budget right now to do much in marketing

Are you going to charge a first time charge and will you charge more for a customer without a contract?

I havn't decided yet. But I think if someone just wants a one time deal its gotta be $30 or more. You've got truck, gas, labor and materials. So i think its only worth your time if you can do it weekly

Also what about the pet waste? Do you leave it there in a bag or do you take it with you?

I'm thinking it should be left there. If you don't leave it there then your going to have alot of crap at your house which we all know that its not good in the summer time. But good thinking about that.

Hi Dave,

Those are great thoughts.

A lot of the readers on the forum just have no idea on how to price such packages.

Do you have any advice as to what price range they should be shooting for with such packages?
