Hiring a professional pet sitter for your vacation or business trip is a great way to be sure that your pets are cared for by someone that is experienced in pet care and has a solid reputation of reliability, commitment and professionalism. In order for your pet sitter to provide the best level of care below are some handy tips.
Let your pet sitter know of anyone who will have access to your home while you are away. This way they are not startled when they arrive and someone is in your home or something is out of place.
Consider canceling your lawn service during your trip, so pets with outdoor access don’t surprise the gardener or visa versa.
To ensure pet safety make sure all storage areas are secure so your pets can’t open them and possibly eat something dangerous to their health.
See that medications are locked away. Many medications for pets are in chewable form and pets might try to get them off the counter and have a little “treat”. Bottles might seem like a toy at first for your pets but if medications are ingested it could be detrimental to your pets.
Limit the areas in your home that your pet has access to. This helps the sitter locate your pet and limits the areas where accidents might occur.
Leave an unwashed article of clothing out for your pet. Your pet will be comforted by your scent, which will help lessen any stress.
Lastly, enjoy a sigh of relief; you have hired a professional pet sitter to care for your pets. All that is left is for you to enjoy your vacation!
The most important part about using a professional pet sitter is that your pets will be loved and kept on their normal routines in the comfort of their own home and this means less stress for them and you.
