Pets in car?

I've only had 2 pax ever bring a dog and one held it the whole time, but tonight I got a guy from Iran and though his dog stayed in the back 90% of the time, it bounced around to the front since it was anxious.

I personally love dogs and I drive my two around occasionally, so I have a lint roller in my trunk at all times just in case, but how about you all? Do you show up and tell them no or just deal?

Most pax will try to be sneaky and not give the driver a heads up by calling or text before the pick up. I'm usually cool with animals but it's gotta be a service animal in order for me to take them.

I happen to love animals and will gladly accept pax with pets. I find nothing wrong with a trip to the vet. My only requirement is the pax have a towel or blanket on rainy days.

Because this is a resort area, I carry a dog cover in the storage compartment. If they have a dog I explain it's for other customers who may be allergic to pet dander. It's also for people coming back from the beach who may be dirty and/or sandy.

I've had pets 2-3 times and it doesn't bother me in the least. One guy actually called me while in route and asked if I mind. I said absolutely not, if you can hold him on your lap and thanked him for asking me. The others stood outside car and asked before getting in and my response was the same. I love animals and anyone traveling with one must love them too! I'm certain they were all 5 star happy K9!

I'll take cats if they are friendly cats. Usually let them smell my hand first.
Yes to service dogs. No to hyperactive, demanding dachshunds. Yes to pit bulls, pugs.
No to large birds of prey.

I carry treats for doggies. Some of these millennials don't like to tip but I solicit a tip explaining that I have to spend a few minutes logging off and missing potential income brushing out the back seat. Not a big deal but it is something I need to do for the next pax.

When you guys cancel for pets, do you follow up with Uber and explain? What if you get too many pets in a row and end up with too many cancellations?

That is cool, Osii. I bet Scuby snacks are a great hit.
