Helpful Tips While You’re Away

How can I help the pet sitter and my pet?

Of course, even the most trustworthy, experienced pet sitter will have trouble if you haven’t also kept your end of the bargain. Here are your responsibilities:

Prepare for your pet:

Make reservations with your pet sitter early, especially during holidays.
Ensure your pet is well socialized and allows strangers to handle him.
Affix current identification tags to your pet’s collar and TIGHTEN it.

Maintain current vaccinations for your pet.

Leave clear instructions detailing specific pet-care responsibilities and emergency contact information, including how to reach you and your veterinarian.

Leave pet food and supplies in one place.

Buy extra pet supplies in case you’re away longer than planned.

Prepare your home:

Leave a key with a trustworthy neighbor as a backup, and give him and your pet sitter each other’s phone numbers. Be sure those extra keys work before giving them out.

Show the pet sitter your home’s important safety features such as the circuit breaker and security system.

Inform the pet sitter of anything that may be out of the ordinary (sinks that don’t drain properly, toilet that overflows, etc.).

Inform the pet sitter if anyone will be in your home like the cleaning person or contractor. If your pet sitter’s first visit will be after dark, be sure to leave some lights on.

Finally, have a safe and fun trip. And remember to bring your pet sitter’s phone number in case your plans change—or you just want to find out how Fluffy and Fido are doing.
