Pet Sitter

Anyone use pet sitters? What responsibilites do you give them? How long do you have them watch your fur kids? How much do you pay them? Thanks Joann

Re: Pet Sitter

I use a pet sitter.  I'm so lucky to have a woman near my home.  She comes in, feeds them and lets them out.  We have a big pen for them outside.  I have 3 dogs, and it's just too difficult to walk them all, so we built a dog pen.

 

This woman takes such good care of them.  Spends time, and as I said, feeds them and lets them out.  If I'm going away for a weekend, she let's them out about 4 times a day, with two of them being feedings.

 

She charges me $10.00 a visit.  I appreciate the fact that my dogs don't have to be boarded out, or stay somewhere they are not familiar with, they get to stay home.

Invaluable.
