I am sure if you are reading this it already tells me that you are a pet parent whose fur-child’s wellbeing is of utmost importance to them. How do I know this? Well, you would not be on our website if you weren’t.

So, let us focus on these heroes, after all this week (1st – 7th March) is dedicated to pet sitters around the world and the fantastic work that they do.

A pet sitter is so much more than someone who just comes over once or twice a day to feed your pets.

A true pet sitter is someone committed to your pet’s health and happiness, always willing to put the needs of your pet way above their own.

They are the night owls as well as the early birds who will always be there. Never abandoning a fur-child in need, even when Fluffy needs a potty break at midnight or Fido needs his medication every hour. They are there!

A master pet sitter is someone who holds a Ph.D. in the art of playing fetch, giving the best cuddles, and of course, tummy scratches. They are always dressed in “walkies” ready gear, and their pockets full of the most scrumptious treats.

Besides the above-mentioned skills that all our incredible sitters already possess, we also look for the following in a sitter before allowing them to take over the care of your loved ones.

  • Honesty & integrity
  • Reliability & work ethics
  • Responsibility
  • Animal lover

All our sitters are tested on general pet sitting etiquette and pet care emergency readiness. Candidates also go through a background screening process to ensure that your fur-children are left in the most capable hands possible.

Every pet’s safety and happiness, along with your peace of mind is always our top priority when we pair a sitter to your babies.
