What to Ask a Pet Sitter Before Booking Services

Are you hiring a pet sitter or dog walker in Raleigh for the holidays? Here is what to ask them before you book service to ensure your fur baby will be in good hands while you are gone. Knowing how to vet a pet sitter will give you one less thing to worry about this holiday season.

  1. Are you able to schedule a consult to see if you and (insert pet name here) are a good fit? Asking a potential pet sitter to schedule a consult gives you an opportunity to get to know one another, explain the routine of your pet(s) and discuss any home care such as bringing in the mail, taking out the trash, and rotating lights or blinds. 
  1. Are you available during my requested times and time frames? Determine how many times per day the sitter should come to your home and for what duration. Take into account any extra time you want including extra walks, cuddles, and tummy rubs.
  1. What is your experience with special needs or medical issues? If your pet has medical concerns that require medication or monitoring, it is vital to ask this question for continuity of care.
  1. Are you bonded and insured? This is important in case of undue property damage in the event of an accident.
