What to Ask to Trust a Pet Sitter

What to Ask to Trust a Pet Sitter

Jordan Walker has always been passionate for animals. He loves to share his knowledge and expertise about the animal kingdom through pet-related blogs. Currently, he leads the content team of Coops and Cages. And now, Jordan will be sharing us some tips on things we should ask to a pet sitter before hiring them.

Employing a pet sitter can be a very scary experience because you will have to trust a stranger to look after your pets while you are gone. Just like the selection process an employer does when finding an employee, a pet owner must also be very keen to details so as to choose the best candidate for the job.

If you are a pet owner looking for a pet sitter, these questions might be of great help before you make the hire:

  1. Do you have a business card?
  2. If you’re about to talk with a professional pet sitter, then you can expect them to have a business card with them anywhere they go. This should contain all contact information you might possibly need, especially when you need to check on your pets while you are away to ensure the safety of your furry friends.

  3. Do you listen to instructions?

  4. While some professional pet sitters require the owners to complete a questionnaire before arriving, others will just take note of specific instructions. If this is the case, then make sure they jot down any essential information given to them, including the animal’s habits, needs, and grooming.

  5. How do you interact with pets upon introduction?
  6. Most of the time, professional pet sitters interact with pets and greet them upon meeting. If this isn’t the case, then it is best that you look for other information about them.

    Sometimes, if your pet is too bashful, the tendency is that he will tend to shy away and just sit at the corner and observe the actions of the sitter. When this happens, a professional pet sitter must have a better plan on how to get your pet’s trust.

  7. Do you have other emergency contacts?

  8. In times of emergency such as a dog getting a cold, the pet sitters must always have contact information of the veterinarian. But in the event that the pet’s vet isn’t available, the sitter should have a local contact.

    If at the end of the day, you have hired the right pet sitter, by the time you get back, your pet should be very happy to see you. This is because when they receive the right amount of food and care, they would also return the favor. Hence, a good pet sitter should bring out the best of your pet, even if you are away from home.
