We have always had a pet sitter stay at our house with our dogs when we were out of town, so when we moved to Houston I didn't know who we would use, luckily our neighbor gave us Lester's name.

For the love of the dog!

What Lester would like to know about your dog
There are many important things that I would like to know about sitting for my potential clients's dog:
1. The routine of the dog. How many times do they need to be let out? Are they active? Do they enjoy playing fetch? Are they allowed on the bed or furniture?
2. Is the dog on any sort of medicine? If so, what are the dosages and usage.
3. How many times a day do they need to be fed? Are they allowed to have dog treats?
4. How do they react to other dogs? Are they friendly? Do I need to cross the street if another dog is coming down the same sidewalk?
I can figure out a lot of information on my first meet and greet to what kind precautions to take I will need to take in order for the dog and I to have a wonderful time together.
