What is a Pet Sitter?

So you need to head out of town on an “extended vacation” and you’re not too sure what to do with the kids – that is: Pets. Your emergency departure has left you scratching your head about kennels, boarding facilities…pet resorts? Aren’t those things expensive? Not to mention you have a bird, and most pet service facilities only take dogs or the occasional cat. So what do you do? Hire a pet sitter, of course.

Wait! What’s a pet sitter? A pet sitter is a great alternative to the unfamiliar and potentially scary atmosphere surrounding the typical boarding kennel. A sitter will act as your pet’s own personal caretaker who either visits or stays over at your home to make sure your pet is well cared for while you’re away. And all according to your instructions – an option not usually available at kennels or pet resorts.

But not all pet sitting companies are created equal. There are a few points that should be taken into consideration aside from the usual good reviews and other credentials, such as references. What about insurance? What about bonding? How do you run a background check on potential hires? You could either do all of this research on your own or take a chance and hire the kid next door. Or you could take a look at a pet sitting/dog walking company with proven credentials which also offers all of the above certifications.
