How I care for your pet
All visits are for at least half an hour. More time is spent if I feel it is needed, at no extra cost.
Some other pet sitters offer 20/30 minute visits. I personally don’t feel that 20 minutes is long enough to care for your pet & do the jobs involved with pet sitting. I’m discreet & I don’t advertise my business on my car. I feel this helps as you don’t want anyone knowing that you’re away on holiday & your home is empty.
Before I care for you pets I visit you to introduce myself, meet you & your pets. I have a checklist detailing your requirements & you can look through all of my DBS Police Checks that I have done yearly. I also show you my references, reviews & insurance. I note who your vets are & where your pet carrier is located incase of any emergencies.
The Pets I Care For
Around your home
For all different types of pets I ensure your home is secure & carry out the following for you:
- I draw curtains, switch lights on/off & move post/junk mail out of sight.
- I’m very careful ensuring all doors are locked & alarms are set.
- I wheel bin/s out & back again.
- I water any plants – both indoor & outdoor.
These small things really do help in making your home appear lived in. I’ve had a client where I found a puddle of water on the kitchen floor. I found there was a leak under the sink & as I was able to fix it she was very grateful. Little things like this are peace of mind for you whilst you are away.
A quick word on Dogs...
As much as I love dogs, they’re really cool, I no longer walk them or offer dog & house sitting.
I did this for many years until I decided to focus on cats & small pets. I mean no offence to my canine friends, it just does not suit the overall aims of the Pet Sitting Service any longer.
