Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What is a taxi?
We either pick your dog(s) up and bring them to Buddy Boarding Farm; or, take your dog(s) back to your home from Buddy Boarding Farm. We also provide taxi services to/from the groomer, vet, a friends house, etc. If the taxi service is not to/from BB Farm, please note that we cannot make set appointments for taxi services. That is, we cannot take your dog(s) to a grooming appointment or a vet appointment if it is at a specific time. We offer taxi services inside of a time block (11AM-4PM). That is, we will pick your dog up and/or bring them home anytime between 11AM-4PM.
2. How do I schedule a taxi ride?
You can schedule a taxi ride at your convenience online, by giving us a call, sending us a text, or sending us an email anytime!
3. Do I need to be home when you pick up/drop off my dog(s)?
No, it is not required.
As long as you give us:
1. a key, a garage code, or even have a friend or family member greet us
2. Include some instructions on where your dog will be/needs to go and where your dog(s) belongings are/where you'd like us to put your dogs belongings (if they have anything perhaps for boarding)
...Then, we are all set!

We provide taxi services every day (excluding major Holidays) from 11AM-4PM. We do not create set appointment times for taxi services. Your pup will be picked up/dropped off anytime between 11AM-4PM.
3. Can you taxi my dog to the vet?
As long as we are dropping your dog off, yes.
If you are asking us to take your dog to the vet for you, no--unless of course it is an emergency.
In order for you to receive the best vet care possible, the owner needs to be present to be able to discuss treatment plans, recent changes in behavior, concerns, etc.
The taxi service is strictly for dropping off and picking up; not taking your pet to an appointment for you and having discussions with vets, vet techs, groomers, etc.
4. Can I schedule a set appointment time for your taxi services?
No. Our taxi service runs from 11AM-4PM and there are no set appointment times available. Your dog will be dropped off and/or picked up anytime between 11AM-4PM on desired date. You select the date and we will pick up or drop off your kiddo anytime between 11AM-4PM.
5. Can I schedule a taxi ride for my dog the day of?
You can request a taxi ride anytime; however we cannot guarantee your taxi service will be approved. In order to guarantee your taxi ride will be approved and taken care of, you must give us a 120 hour (5 day) notice.
6. Are there cancellations fees?
If you cancel your taxi ride the same day as the service is to be provided inside of the 11AM-4PM time block, yes - you will be charged $25 for a cancellation. If you cancel your taxi ride at least 2 hours before 11AM, no, no charge will be accrued.
7. What is the farthest distance you will travel for taxi services?
We provide taxi services up to 15 miles.
In other words - we do not provide taxi services over 15 miles
(from Buddy Boarding Farm: 8359 Batavia Rd. Cincinnati, OH 45244).
8. Can you taxi my dog for daycare?
Unfortunately, no, we cannot.
Because our taxi operates from 11AM-4PM,
your dog would not get any/enough playtime if taxi services were used.
9. Why is there a $15 "daycare fee"?
Your pup will be dropped off AFTER our AM timeblock//picked up BEFORE our PM timeblock,
therefore - this additional charge is for the care given during 'daycare hours'.
