There are plenty of options for pet care, such as asking a friend or neighbor or using a kennel service. Your Welland animal hospital may even offer boarding options for pets who are patients there. Yet many pet owners choose instead to hire a qualified pet sitter to care for their pet in their absence. It’s a popular choice because the animal can remain in the environment she’s most comfortable in, there’s no disruption in her daily routine and she will still receive plenty of attention while her owner is away. It also provides peace of mind to the pet owner, knowing the animal is being cared for by a professional.
Finding a good pet sitter can be challenging, however. Referrals and recommendations are your best bet. Ask friends and neighbors who they’ve hired in the past or call your Welland animal hospital. They may have a list of preferred sitters that they can recommend. Once you have a list of names, you can begin the interview process.
Here are a few things to consider when selecting a pet sitter:
- What training and experience does the sitter have?
- Are they insured?
- Do they have references?
- How much time will they devote to your pet?
- What activities do they offer?
- Are they affiliated with a local Welland animal hospital?
- What is their rate?
The answers to these questions will help you narrow down your selection and determine the sitter that best suits the needs of you and your pet.
Choosing a pet sitter doesn’t have to be difficult. If you know where to look and what questions to ask, the task will be an easy one and you’ll be able to enjoy your trip worry-free knowing your animal is being well cared for at home.
