Pet carers and services for pet sitting, grooming, pet boarding, dog walkers or obedience training for your pets from pet lovers and owners. With more and more people providing pet sitting, its easy to go on your holiday or work trip. Or maybe you're busy at work and need someone to pop in to feed and walk your dog so that you can finish your work.
If you do need a pet carer, here are some tips before you hire one.
Background Check. This is perhaps the most important. Check the carer's experience and what types of pets he/she has looked after. Ask for referrals or reviews from other customers. Best to meet with the carer and do a site visit so that you are comfortable with the environment your pet will be staying in. Do share your pet's like and dislike so that your carer knows how to deal with your pet, especially in the presence of other pets.
Food. Bring more than enough food for the duration of stay. Just in case your return is delayed.
Toys. Bring your pet's favorite toys and treats so that they are less anxious.
Medication. If your pet has any medical issues or requires medication, let your carer know. Do also provide your usual vet's telephone number and address so that past medical history can easily be traced.
Book early. Most carers are fully booked during holidays and weekends, so its best that you book early.
Check in. Have regular check ins with your carer to see how your pet is doing. Some sitters either do a video call or send pictures so you can see your pet.
Pet Insurance. It might be a good idea to get pet insurance, especially if there is a medical emergency - it can be pretty costly. If you want to make sure that your pet gets the best treatment, then this is a small price to pay.
Now go on and enjoy your holiday or book a pet carer to feed and walk your pet so you can finish that late-night work assignment. Book online with instant confirmation.
