We wanted to give you some tips on how to ensure a great match for your dog when looking for a dog sitter. One way to ensure that the dog sitter matches your personal requirements is to try and inform yourself more about the services provided by the dog sitter of your choice. Try to initiate a “Meet and Greet” before the actual stay so you don’t encounter any surprises at the last minute. Here are example of questions to consider asking before you do the “Meet and Greet.”
- How many dogs will be present during your dog’s stay?
- How much time daily will the sitter spend with your dog inside and outside?
- Who will be the prime caregiver?
- Where the sitter plans to take the dog when outside?
As a dog owner you should also consider telling the dog sitter everything about your dog to ensure that the dog sitter is familiar as much as possible about your dog’s preferences, habits, likes and dislikes. Be prepared to provide information about medical history and vaccinations, and how your dog behaves around children and other pets.
And finally, let’s not forget that bringing your dog’s favorite toys, treats, beds, or blankets will help your dog feel right at home when you are away.
