Top Ten Tips to Help With Pet Sitting in Drummondville
Check out our list of the top 10 things to think about when considering Pet Sitting. We
will split the list into five tips for sitters, and five for hosts.
As a pet sitter, being flexible is a huge bonus.
It’s tempting to think that pet sitting is something that you can do forever,
travelling around the world and never having to pay for accommodation, but the
reality is that there is always going to be some periods of time when you will
not be able to find a host in the location you are looking in, however hard you
look. Therefore, being flexible and open to staying in hostels, hotels or even
a home base is a huge advantage. Similarly, if you get a good gig, and you have
the chance to extend, take this up – making onward plans may not always be
Having experience is incredibly helpful as a pet sitter.
If you have plenty of sits already then hosts know that you are a safe pair of hands
and are more likely to trust you with their pets and in their homes. What’s more, on
most pet sitting platforms, the experienced sitters will sorted to the top of the
search pile, thereby meaning that they are far more likely to be chosen by owners.
Experienced sitters may also stand out on these platforms as well. Experience with
the animals you are looking after will also benefit you as well, should something go
wrong or an unexpected situation arise during the sit.
Love animals. This one is pretty obvious – if you
genuinely love animals and are being a pet sitter for the joy of spending time with
new and interesting pets, then you’re going to get more from it (and be more
successful too). Some people get into pet sitting thinking that it is simply a ticket
to some free accommodation, but in our experience those who genuinely enjoy being
around animals always rise to the top and get the most offers. If you are able to
keep the owner updated with all the fun you are having with their pets, then they
are more likely to leave you good reviews which will help with securing further sits.
Meet the pet before the sit. This one is not always
possible, as you might be sitting away from your home country, however if you can it
can be very worthwhile to meet the pet before you start the sit. This means that you,
the owner and even the pet can all see whether you share a bond and whether you do
indeed want to look after this animal. It will also encourage the owner and hopefully
upon meeting you will make them more likely to choose you as a sitter. In addition,
you can confirm that the house and the area you are staying in is indeed right for you.
Plenty of communication with the host. Communication is
key when it comes to pet sitting – often, the more you communicate well with the owner,
the better the review (and pet sitting experience) you are likely to get. Some sitters
give a day by day account of what they and the pet got up to, which can be very
reassuring for the owner to hear. Moreover, communication is also essential before the
sit starts as well – you can chat with the owner to establish routines, any important
things to know about the house, information about what to do if the pet gets ill and
And now for hosts. There are a number of things you can look out
for to secure a good pet sitter. First of all check for the verification level of the
sitter. Our partners’ platform shows verified sitters far more prominently than others,
and it is important to be aware that there are different levels of verification to look
out for. You might expect to see verification of email addresses and telephone numbers,
right through to verification of documents. Ultimately, the more verified a sitter is
the more sure you can be that they are who they say they are, which is incredibly
important when you are trusting someone with your house and your pets.
Talk to the sitter. It’s so important to talk to the
sitter beforehand, as all this upfront communication with make the whole process run
far more smoothly. For example, does your pet have any illnesses, allergies or other
problems that the sitter needs to be aware of? Then you should explain all this as
early on in the process as possible, both so the pet sitter can prepare but also
because they need to be able to back out if the arrangement isn’t right for them. In
the same vein, you should also ensure that they are fully up to date with any quirks
or issues that they are likely to encounter in your house.
Book your sitter in advance. The most experienced
sitters tend to be the most popular, so if you are going away, make sure to secure
your sitter very early on. You might even want to check that there is a sitter you
like the look of free before you even actually book the holiday, or at least that
there are a good range of people free on the dates you are looking at. This is
because the most popular sitters (who tend to be the best reviewed, the most
experienced and the most verified) are in high demand and often there will actually
be many hosts in competition for these sitters.
Develop a strong relationship with a sitter. It is very
much worth keeping in touch with the sitter after a successful experience, as there
is a strong chance that you will be able to use them again. This is because if the
timings and location were a match once, they are likely to be a match again. If you
use a repeat sitter then you are likely to find that the experience will become
smoother and smoother as they get more used to your pets, your home and the location
you stay in. This way you can go on holiday far more often, safe in the knowledge
that you have someone who knows your needs well looking after your home.
Enjoy the experience! The whole point of pet sitting
is that it allows you to get away from it all and enjoy your hard earned leisure time.
Therefore, it is important that you don’t stress too much about the fact that there
is a relative stranger in your house looking after your pets. The modern pet
sitting movement is very reliable and mutually beneficial for all parties, therefore
you have very little to fear indeed. You can expect fairly regular updates from the
sitter, but ultimately if you chose an experienced, verified and well reviewed sitter
then they will be able to get on with things themselves, leaving you to enjoy your
holiday without worries.
