I Know My Pet… Does My Sitter?

By 10/18/2019No Comments

You know your pet’s unique quirks, behaviors and characteristics. When you leave town or take a vacation, how will your sitter know your pets like you do? 

Why should your pet sitter need to know your pet’s personality?

Think about it. Our pets have so many quirks, nuances, behaviors and characteristics. 

When you live with them everyday, they become second nature to you. You hardly even think about them. 

When you go away for a business trip or a much needed vacation, you want your pet sitter to love your babies like you do.

The basics

Your pet acts one way with you. When you’re not there?  Their routine is rocked. Their day-to-day habits can change.

Share the basics you know about them with your sitter:

    • Favorite food
    • Favorite water bowl
    • Favorite snack
    • Favorite toy
    • Favorite interactive play game
    • Favorite sleeping spot
    • Favorite hiding spot
    • Favorite pee & poop spot
The next level

Where is your pet’s next level of comfort in a storm, when loud noises are in play, your voice is not around to comfort and they are alone?

    • In a cupboard, under a bed, under the covers, in a closet, certain room?
    • What tricks work to get them out?
    • Where do you find them?
    • What gets their attention?
The next, next level….they get lost or there is an emergency

If the unexpected happens on your sitter’s watch, are they prepared? 

    • Lost posters with your pet’s information need to be posted in the community and on social media 
    • In an emergency, your pet sitter needs to know your personal vet information and the closest 24/7 vet clinic 
    • Your sitter needs a signed consent form to get your pet the needed care they need
Make it easy with a pet profile
