Five Tips for Successful Pet Sitting3 minute read Thursday, Jul. 28, 2022
So, you’re heading out of town for a few days, and you have to leave your beloved pet behind. Here are five tips to ensure your pet will be in good hands while you’re away.
Find the right fit
Just because your Facebook friend’s cousin’s neighbour dog sits from time to time, it doesn’t mean they’re qualified to care for your pet. You’ll want to find a pet sitter who has experience with the species, breed, age, activity level, health and temperament of your pet, or at least someone who you’re confident can handle your pet’s needs.
On pet-sitting sites like Rover.com, you can narrow your search based on the criteria that’s important to you. You’ll also have the extra assurance, knowing these pet sitters have been vetted based on their experience and safety practices—and they’re often backed by a company guarantee that will help you cover vet bills, should the unexpected occur.
