Frequently Asked Questions

Should you write a contract when hiring a pet sitter, and if so- what should be in it?

Your pet sitter should provide you with a contract. If the sitter doesn’t, you should write a contract for the sitter to sign. It should include details of the care the sitter agrees to provide for your pet.

Should your pet meet your pet sitter before your trip?

Your pet should definitely meet your pet sitter before your trip. Meeting the sitter ahead of time may help reduce the nervousness your pet feels when you leave, compared to being left with a  total stranger. It can also keep your pet from aggressively protecting your home from the sitter.

What items should a professional pet sitter have on hand?

A professional pet sitter should have a pet first aid kit on hand as well as comfort items, such as blankets and toys. Professional pet sitters should also have treats to offer pets, as long as owners have approved the treats, as well as an extra leash and carrier for emergencies.
