Plan Ahead

Assuming availability, The Sitters are happy to accommodate last-minute, short notice visits.  However, advance planning is preferred and greatly appreciated.  Advance reservations are especially important around holidays as we book up quickly.

If you don’t have an extra key to your house, you will need to have one made (make sure you try it out first). Consider allowing us to keep your house key indefinitely to eliminate the need for key exchanges each and every visit.

Please buy extra food, litter and supplies for when you will be away and in the event you may stay away longer than you had anticipated. If your dog is not used to walking on a leash, you should practice with him before leaving.

Provide written verification of up to date vaccinations for your pet (tags on collars are good). Provide ID tags on all pets, including cats.
