Professional 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:

  • Possible 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 vaccinations 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, , pet sitting accreditation. A number of professional organizations exist to help pet sitters improve their services.

The information sort out was from Wikipedia

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 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.

Dog walking

Pet sitters,Hiuse sitters,Pet feeders 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.

Recently, I had a new sitter of mine comment that she was visiting a client’s home and she noticed a guy parked in an unmarked car on the street outside the house who lingered and made her uncomfortable.

She said I should tell all my new pet sitters to lock the doors after they arrive for the visit.

Makes complete sense.

I guess locking the doors behind me is so automatic that I don’t think to tell my new sitters.

So I started thinking… How many other safety tips do we ourselves do that other pet sitters need to know.

Some pet sitter safety tips that you routinely do yourself may not be so obvious to others.

Here are two safety tips to get us going…

Tip #1: Lock doors after you enter the house.

Tip #2: Carry keys with you at all times during the visit – especially when taking pets out into the yard. Some clients have doors that automatically lock when closed – you don’t want to be locked outside with the pets.

And here are other pet sitter tips that were contributed by APSE members.

Tip #3: Keep cell phone with you–do not leave it in the car.

Tip #4: If a parked car, or pedestrian, seem out of place, don’t stop the car. Circle the block.

Tip #5: Carry some sort of ID on your person–not just in your wallet (usually left in the car).

Tip #6: Learn to dia l000 on your particular phone without having to look at the keypad.

Tip #7: Locate where the landline phones are in the client’s home (if they have one).

Tip #8: If you will be walking dogs after dark, invest in a leashlight, or some reflective wrist/ankle bands if you don’t wear reflective clothing.

Tip #9: We personally DO NOT walk dogs after dark. In the evening I take another person with me even if they just sit in the car… just in case.

Tip #10: I also do this when I do meet and greets…my sons or husband sits in the car..which also helps me keep the meeting to a minimum. (I know this not an option for every sitter)

Tip #11: I also make sure to leave the address and phone number on my dry erase board if I have to go make a visit alone and the time or times that I will be there and if my family doesn’t hear back from me within a certain amount of time they call or text me to make sure I am ok… if I don’t answer within a certain time they have been instructed to contact the police. I have had my husband text me during a visit because I got to chatting with the client and I forgot to text my husband to let him know I was still at the client’s home..so the text came through and I excused myself and explained to the client that my husband was just checking on me since I wasn’t back home when I told him I would be home…

Tip #12: Make sure alarm companies are notified of any sits.

Tip #13: All keys should remain clipped to the uniform.

Tip #14: Have a business id on hand in the event of any law enforcement interactions.

Tip #16: Remove business signs during sits (we used magnetic on car).

Tip #17: Carry pepper spray or dog deterrent in the event of a dog attack.

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.
