- Does the pet sitter have the proper business license for your city or state (if required)?
- Is the pet sitter insured and bonded?
- Can the pet sitter provide proof of clear criminal history?
- Does the pet sitter provide client references?
- Will the pet sitter use a pet-sitting services agreement or contract?
- Is the pet sitter trained in pet first aid and CPR?
- Does the pet sitter have an evacuation plan if your unable to return for a hurricane?
- Is the pet sitter working solo? If so, what is their emergency plan should they become unable to care for your pets?
- Does the sitter use a GPS system via an app that shows the time spent at your home?
When it comes to quality care and safety of your home and pets be sure you hire an experienced pet sitter. Many hobbyist are trying to cash in on the pet sitting industry, unaware of the many things that can go wrong if you’re not experienced.
Thinking of using an online service like Rover.com and bringing your pet to someone’s home instead? Before you do consider this:
- Do you know who is coming and going in and out of the home? Ex. Small kids or unexpected guest that may open a door and the dog slips out and runs off.
- Do you know that there are not dangerous things left on the floor your dog can ingest? Ex. small toys, socks, money or open chemicals?
- Do you know if other animals are going to also stay at the home that may not get along with yours and get into a fight?
- Do you know if children or house guest that could potentially get bit by your dog will not try to sue you?
- Are you able to have a visual on your pet via a camera?
