Free House sitters

House sitters Hobart & Tasmania sites a few things to consider
This is a good idea until something goes wrong.

I do not charge you to be on a site and then leave you to your own devices.I operate a very affordable house sitting service that you pay for.The amount of people we have to get out of trouble because of free house sitters who decide they don’t want to be there any more or the pets are a pain & driving them insane is huge.Or a better house sit prospect has come through and they want to cancel yours at the last minute.Whether it is a free house sitting service or friends or family when they do let you down it is always at the last minute or whilst you are away already.This is very distressing to the house and pet owner. We get most of our business from free house sitting services who stuff  up.Or need us to go in asap to take over

This is just one example but we have many but the blog would be way to long so we will just use this one for an example.                                                                                                       We went into one just last week the free sitter who was leaving we met with to get the keys from her & take over.The dog jumped up on her a she smacked it in the head really hard and screamed at the dog.I was horrified & this lady minds peoples pets omg.I have people on the phone crying to me needing us to do an emergency take overs all the time and most of the time the owners are out of the state very distressing for the house owners.                   For me these free services supply me with great new clients as they will never want to get burnt again.

With my House sitters.I screen them personally. Have them police checked.I check their references.I supply insurance coverage over your pets and liability.All my sitters are pets CPR & pets first aid trained we have OH&S seminars 3 times a year.As well as pet behavior seminars,we give our sitters 24/7 support.The sitters keep you updated with photos and emails if you request.If an emergency comes up & a sitter needs to leave we have another professional sitter to stand in.You get to have a free meet n greet with the sitter and interview them and show & tell them what you would like them to do for your pets and home.I follow up & call the the owners of the house after each house sit to see how it went to keep track to make sure my sitters are staying up to a very good standard & to make sure that the owners are happy.Happy owners are clients for life!

I don’t think these house sitter services do this.I think its a good idea, and I am sure there is some really great sitters out there.But the old saying you get what you pay for is so true.My sitters get paid for what they do & live in your area and want to get repeat business.So they do their best this is a job to them.Our services are still cheaper than kennels in most cases so its a win win all around.Be careful I have interviewed over 300 potential sitters in 4 years and have only employed 20.You need to know what to look for.Good luck to everyone & remember if your pets are demanding a free service is not always the best way to go.But its your pets and home & your decision.                                We care for all types of pets domestic and rural                    If you would like t0 have a chat or look at our website www.pettaxi.net.au      PH 0428568852

Professional Pet Sitters/Sitting Industry

The professional pet-sitting industry is growing rapidly because many pet owners feel that there are advantages to using pet sitters, rather than traditional pet care options. Reasons people use pet sitters include:

  •  Reduced stress on pets because pets are cared for in their own homes
  • No “travel trauma” to pets because they do not need to be transported anywhere
  • Exposure to illnesses and parasites of other animals is minimized
  • Required Holidays are often less restrictive than those necessary at a kennel
  • Pets stay on their regular routines and do not need to adapt to a new environment
  • Not having to deal with neighbors, friends or family members feeling that they are inconvenienced

Professional pet sitters are often licensed, and insured for liability including care, custody, and control of the pets in their care. Many pet sitters are also bonded or insured for theft. Pet sitters usually have training, such as pet first aid certification, and hold classes in Pet First Aid, or pet sitting accreditation. A number of professional organizations exist to help pet sitters improve their services.

In many areas, no special occupational license is required for pet sitters. The term “licensed” is often used by pet sitting professionals to refer to licenses to do business, kennel licenses, and/or animal transportation permits available within the coverage area of the business. These licenses may or may not be required, depending on the location. Licenses are not available in all areas.

Services

There are many different services which can be offered by pet sitters.

Holiday /Vacation Pet care

During vacation pet sitting, a pet sitter visits a client’s home several times, as required. The exact length of visit is determined by both pet owners and pet sitters, averaging from fifteen to forty-five minutes. Typical services offered include: providing the pets’ customary diet and exercise routine, administration of medications, vitamins, and other special care, monitoring health and arranging for medical treatment in case of illness. Most pet sitters bill clients on a per-visit or per-day basis, including additional charges for multiple pets, travel expenses, and special tasks. Less commonly, pet sitters offer live-in care. Pet sitters also provide house sitting in conjunction with vacation pet care.

How to Care for a Dog

by Dr. William Fortney Article found in Animal Planet

aspects of dog-care, including:

  • Dog-Naming Tips Naming your pooch is a joyful task, but one you’ll want to put some thought into ahead of time. Both you and your dog will have to live with the name you choose for your entire time together. There are many ways to come up with appropriate dog names, including appearance, heritage, special characteristics, and behavior. We cover them all in this section. We will also tell you about some dog names and dog-naming mistakes you will definitely want to avoid.
  • Dog Supplies Think of how many personal items you have, and how many of them are indispensable to your health and happiness. Dogs require fewer accessories than us humans, but theirs are no less vital, and by selecting the proper items, you can improve your pooch’s health in ever regard. If you’ve ever ventured inside a pet store, you know how confusing it can be just picking out a collar or leash. We will cover all the basics like food and grooming accessories, as well as specialty items like a carrier.
  • Dog Feeding Nothing is more vital to the health of your dog than proper feeding. Dogs are eager eaters, and this is part of their charm. But it also means that you need to be well informed about what is will give a dog good health and energy and what could be bad for her, despite her willingness to try it out. Here are all the details, including several make-it-at-home recipes for delicious, nutritious and economical dog food. (We also answer the eternal question, “Why do dogs eat plants?”)
  • Puppy-Training Tips A new puppy can really melt your heart, but they can also be a handful. The sooner your pooch is accustomed to doing his business outdoors and on schedule, the better for all of you. Interestingly, this is made easier when correlated to the feeding schedule. There is more to training your puppy than housebreaking, however. You must also know the correct way to humanely discipline your new dog when he misbehaves. All the details of this crucial stage in your dog’s life are in this section.
  • Dog-Grooming and Bathing Tips Dogs can get messy, and they don’t naturally keep themselves quite as clean as we’d like them to be as co-habitants in our homes. As the owner, proper grooming on bathing is your responsibility. But there is more to caring for your dog than simple bathing. You must also care for your dog’s nails, teeth, eyes and ears. So in this section we cover key strategies for keeping your pooch clean and everyone happy. We’ll even tell you when it’s time to throw in the towel and seek the aid of a professional groomer.
  • Dog-Proofing Your Home Dog-proofing your home can be just as challenging as proofing your home for a child or for allergies. For instance, do you know which types of houseplants can be poisonous for dogs? You might also be surprised to learn that some of your favorite treats can really upset your dog’s stomach. For everyone’s health and happiness, it’s vital to make your house safe for your dog and to train the pooch to respect the home, as well. In this section, we give indispensable advice for forging a good relationship between your pet and your residence.
  • Dog-Proofing Your Yard Most dogs spend at least a little time in the yard, but this congenial place poses its own challenges and dangers. First, you will need the right type of fence to keep your dog from roaming the neighborhood where he could possibly get injured or hurt others. We will examine the option of invisiblefences and the so-called “shock collars.” Also, everyone needs a place to call home, and that includes your dog. We’ll tell you how to design and build the perfect doghouse. Learn how to keep both your dog and your yard safe and happy.
  • Dog-Identification Tips Nothing else matters when your dog is lost. Taking a few simple steps when she first comes home can save everyone heartache later. The right tag can get your dog back home where he belongs in a matter of hours. Here we discuss the best methods of providing identification for your dog. We will also discuss some identification options that you may not have heard of. Did you know that some pet owners tattoo their dogs with vital identification information? How about microchip implants? Regardless of the method you choose, we will also tell you how to register your dog’s identification.
