Ask the pet sitters you are interviewing about their Experience

Having experience is one thing. Having relevant experience is Another. All pets are different and at the very least your pet sitter should be used to looking after dogs or cats of a similar size, breed and mentality. Having experience with monkeys, although  may be helpful But in the reality of it all, isn’t going to be very useful when caring for a  after a Shitzu or a German Shepard Or a Persian cat.

Tips for picking a pet sitter

Pets love our pet sitters

You’ve planned the trip. Everything’s set — except the arrangements for the pets staying behind. Hiring a Pet sitter to come to your home circumvents the travel trauma and interrupted routines that boarding can bring. But giving someone access to your personal space requires more than trust. Here are five tips to make choosing a pet sitter worry-free:

1. Hiring a pro. Pet sitters come in two varieties: independent individuals or companies that specialize in pet care. Local companies offer other advantages: Their Pet sitters often are trained for emergency situations and can provide services such as watering the plants and picking up the mail.Two things that offer more security than you get with an independent sitter.

2. Start searching early. You’re asking for trouble if you wait until the last minute to find a pet sitter. Put the word out early (anywhere from one to two months) and ask friends and co-workers for suggestions. Interview every candidate thoroughly, and do it at home. The Pet sitter should want to meet your pet right away and should ask detailed questions about habits, schedules and medical conditions.

3. Watch the sitter interact with your pet. Nonverbal cues — such as whether a sitter gets down on your animal’s level and interacts with it without hesitation — will give you a sense of the kind of care you’re contracting. A sitter should be at ease whether your pets are tiny Chihuahuas or huge Great Danes. Just as important is watching how your animal reacts. If Blackie growls or Fluffy raises its fur, you might want to find another Pet sitter.

4. Leave instructions. Although your verbal directions might seem straightforward, write everything down. You don’t want confusion about where you keep the food or extra kitty litter. Also write down all the walks or play times you expect, and ask that the sitter take notes detailing what happened during each visit. You’ll want to know if anything unusual occurred.

5. Make plans for a worst-case scenario. Even if your Pet sitter does everything right, things can go wrong. Be sure to leave your contact information, vet’s number and any pertinent medical information. Outline what you want the sitter to do if a trip to the vet is needed, and, as hard as it is to think about, decide what you want to happen if your pet needs surgery or to be put down. “The person must be prepared for and trained to handle any emergency that might arise,” Bowes said. “You’re entrusting them with your most precious possessions.”

Dog-Naming Tips

One of the most enjoyable parts of dog ownership is giving your pooch a special name. But once you’ve done that, you also need to take steps to give your dog proper identification, in case he’s lost. Here are extensive details on naming and identifying your dog.

What’s in a Name?

One of the most important ways you communicate with your dog is through her name. When your dog hears her name, she should jump to attention, ready for good times — even if it’s just mealtime. Choosing the right name is a special part of dog ownership, so consider your choices carefully. Here are some things to consider to get you on the right track.

Your dog’s looks. Spot, Blaze, Tiny, or Blackie are all tried and true dog names. The upside is they’re descriptive, making it easier to identify your dog if she gets lost. The downside is there are a lot of other dogs with those names. You might want to be more creative so your dog stands out from the crowd. A tall, leggy dog with a brindle coat — a Greyhound, for instance — might be named Savanna or Tiger, after the flat grasslands of Africa that might have produced an animal with this striped coat pattern.

Your dog’s heritage. Investigating breed history is a great way to find the perfect name. A Scottish breed, such as a West Highland White Terrier, Scottish Terrier, or Cairn Terrier, might be named Murray or Stuart. Safari is a suitable moniker for a Basenji, the barkless breed from Africa. Tundra is a favorite name for Northern breeds like Alaskan Malamutes and Samoyeds.

Your dog’s breed. Beagles, Bloodhounds, and Basset Hounds will follow their noses to the ends of the earth. Sniffer is a good name for one of these dogs, as is Sherlock or Gypsy. Lots of terriers are named Digger, and it’s easy to see why. These dogs were once bred to go after varmints that lived in underground dens, hence their tendency today to excavate their yards.

Your pup’s special traits. Why did you get your pup? If the two of you will be hunting or fishing together, you might go with the name Pal or Amigo. Border Collies are said to be the smartest of all breeds, so consider giving yours a name to match her intellect: Einstein or Newton, for instance.

Your puppy’s registered name. Breeders often give litters a theme or names beginning with the same letter. A litter with a country music theme might have pups named Nashville’s Yoakam, Nashville’s Dolly, Nashville’s Reba, and Nashville’s Waylon. Registered names may include the kennel name or the names of the sire and dam. Thus you might have Cloverhill’s Indian Summer, Craigwood Higgins of Switchbark, or Magnolia’s Prince of Thieves. Although these names appear on the dog’s registration papers, they obviously aren’t good choices to use around the house. The breeder or owner gives the dog a nickname, or call name. Craigwood Higgins of Switchbark probably goes by Woody to his friends.

Your hobbies and special interests. If you’re a sports fan, you have lots of great names to choose from, whether your game is golf, tennis, basketball, football, track and field, or hockey. You might name a fleet-footed Greyhound or Whippet Carl, Jesse, or FloJo. Naming a Boxer is almost too easy: How about Frazier, Ali, or Sugar Ray?

Your favorite books, movies, or television shows. Lots of dogs are named Lassie in honor of the Collie of literary, film, and television fame. But you don’t have to name your pet after another dog in a movie or TV show. Pick the name of any one of your favorite characters for your dog.

Helpful hints. Avoid names that rhyme with the word no, such as Mo, Snow, or Beau. You don’t want to confuse your pup when you’re training her. Avoid long or difficult names. Worcestershire may look impressive, but by the time you get it out of your mouth, your dog’s attention will have long since shifted elsewhere. Finally, make sure the name is one you won’t be embarrassed to call out in front of the neighbors.
