Hi! This is Beverly for Expert Village. In this clip, we are going to be talking about how to choose a pet sitter. The most important thing when you are choosing a pet sitter is to find someone that both you and your pet are comfortable with. This person is going to be your best friend’s caregiver while you are gone and they will be coming in and out of your house so make sure you have a good feeling about this person and their ability to take care of your pet. Your pet sitter should meet with you and your pet so they can familiarize themselves with your animals and their routine. Make sure your pet sitter is bonded and insured.
This means that if something is damaged, for instance the pet sitter breaks something in the house that that’s covered. Also if your pet is injured or harmed in any way, that is also covered. It can also cover theft if you believe that your pet sitter has stolen something and you can prove it, then you would be covered for that as well. You can ask your pet sitter for proof of this kind of insurance and also ask them for references; people who have used their services and have been satisfied..
