When you decide to use our pet sitting services for the very first time we will arrange a complimentary visit to your home at a mutually convenient time. This enables us to meet you and your pets and go through your requirements and pets routine, you can inform us of your pets likes/dislikes favourite toys, games, dietary requirements, medication your pet may be on or any other requirements you may have. We can then go through the paperwork and arrange for your pets service to begin.
Why choose a pet sitter to care for your pets?
We are extremely versatile as our service can be tailored to suit you and your pets individual needs. Pets get to stay in their own environment with familiar sights and smells around them and can continue to enjoy their own routine while avoiding the transport/travel trauma associated with going to kennels/catteries. Also minimises exposure to illness from other animals. Most of all happy, contented pets and peace of mind for you.
Do I need to leave anything out for the pet sitter?
It would be really helpful if a dustpan and brush and any cleaning products required are left out so your pet sitter can ensure all feeding and litter tray areas are kept clean, if you could also leave plenty litter and food supplies this will help us greatly and save us having to purchase extra supplies in your absence. If we do have to purchase extra supplies this will be invoiced to you on your return plus a £4 errand fee for our time.
