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 , or pet sitting accreditation. A number of professional organizations exist to help pet sitters improve their services.
There are many different services which can be offered by pet sitters.
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.
Pet sitters also provide dog walking services. Disabled clients and the elderly often hire pet sitters to exercise and care for their pets if they are unable to do so.
Pet sitters may also offer other more aggressive methods of exercise for dogs during dog walking appointments. These may include jogging, running, or doggy parks and beaches with client dogs.
Pet sitters may also offer Home Dog Boarding. Much like traditional house sitting – this involves the dog boarding in the sitter’s own home environment. Allowing increased levels of exercise and play, confidence and social skills. Stress relief and alleviation of boredom. Constant supervision from a caring staff of one. Good behaviour and manners are promoted and rewarded and this provides peace of mind that the dog is safe and happy without the guilty feeling about leaving the pet home alone.
