Valid concerns when hiring a new pet sitting service!
Is it safe to have a ‘stranger’ in my home?
We know that having a new pet sitter in your home for the first time can be nerve-racking.
Here are some tips to help you find a reliable pet sitter that would like to build a trusting relationship with your family.
The pet sitter should be insured for liability, including care, custody, and control of the pet.
The sitter should provide contact information for references upon request. Do be sure to contact the references.
Check with vets, groomers, pet stores, and other area pet businesses to learn more about the reputation of your chosen pet sitting business.
Be sure that the sitter provides a copy of the legal terms of your contract, including cancellation policy and other terms.
Be sure that you fully understand the pricing of your service. Ask what services are included with the rate quoted.
