Just as some people are “dog people” and others are “cat” or “bird” people, there’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to finding the right pet sitter to meet the specific needs of you and your pet.
Finding the right pet sitter requires an investment of time—time to do phone interviews, time to conduct in-your-home meetings, and time to thoroughly check references on those whom you’re considering hiring.
The pet-sitting industry has grown in recent years. This has provided many communities with options for choosing a professional pet-sitting firm.
While it may take a little time up front to determine the pet sitter best suited for your situation, once you’ve made this match, we hope you’ll agree with the multitudes of other pet owners who say, “My pet sitter is worth her (or his) weight in gold!”
