Every time we go to 88 Bark Avenue for my dogs’ monthly grooming “sesh”, we always book and ride a Grab car to get there. Sadly, some Grab drivers would not accept our request because we have a dog with us. I already experienced it twice. They cancelled my booking even if they are already in my pick up location.

Have you experienced the same scenario? If yes, here are 3 Easy Steps on how to book and ride a Grab with your beloved pet.

1. Write a Note to Driver – in the lower right side on your Grab app, you can see the “Option” button were you can write notes for the driver. Please see screenshot below for a sample:

2. Confirm the Note – once the driver has accepted my ride booking, I send a chat message telling him that I have a dog with me. This is my usual message (I don’t have the screenshot of our convos):

“Kuya, meron po akong dalang aso…Nakadamit at naka diaper naman po ito tsaka behave ‘to sa loob ng kotse kasi sanay po ito sa sasakyan at hindi rin po ito umiihi… hindi rin po amoy aso at higit sa lahat po sa lap ko lang poi to papa-upo-in” Masusundo at mahahatid nyo po ba ako? Thanks po

3. Call the Driver – Another way would be to call the driver telling him the same message I wrote above. Sometimes it’s easier to communicate through call…mas mabilis at magkaka-intindihan agad kung papayag ba siya or hindi. Kasi Kapag hindi, pwede ka pang mag-rebook ulit at maghanap ng iba pang Grab driver na papayag na isakay ka.

Sa lahat ng mga drivers na nasakyan ko, na-aappreciate nila ang steps/communications na ginagawa ko sa kanila. Kasi ahead of time nalalaman nila na meron akong dalang aso. They can prepare raw na lagyan ng basahan or newspaper ang upuan at sahig ng kotse.

Also, na-advise din ako ng isang driver na magdala ng basahan/towel para balutin ko ang aso ko para hindi maglagas ang balahibo… Pero noong nakita niya ang aso ko na nakadamit, hindi na niya pinabalot ng towel kasi behave naman at naka-upo lang sa lap ko. They always end up saying, “ang galing naman ng aso mo behave lang at mabango pa”.

Hindi raw tulad sa iba na last minute na malalaman nila na merong dalang aso at merong pang instance na may sakit pa ang aso at mabaho… kaya super baho tuloy raw ng loob ng kotse niya.
