How much should you charge for your holiday fees?

It's common in the pet care industry to charge additional holiday fees for the busiest times of the year. And while every holiday might look a little different for each company, this tool will help you determine how much to charge.

First, you need to decide if you will be setting your holiday fee as a flat rate per service or as a percentage of each service. You also need to decide if you will be setting your holiday fee per visit or per day. If you are taking care of several pets for the whole week of Christmas, you might want to consider a flat fee for the entire week, but if you are watching pets for different intervals, a per-day fee could work better. Our calculator tool provides the national averages for flat rate and percentage-based holiday fees for the common common US holidays.
