Dog Sitter

What is a dog sitter?

In the same way you have sitters for children, you also have sitters for dogs (and cats!). A dog sitter is someone who comes to take care of your dog while you’re away.

What does a dog sitter do?

Dog sitters provide care to your dog during your absence. Their services can range from dog walking to dog sitting in your home for a few days or weeks at a time. Some dog sitters also offer to board your dog at their place. Beyond carrying out these services, they’re also in charge of your dog’s safety and well-being during the whole time they spend with it.

How can I choose the best dog sitter?

You need to figure out your budget and be clear about your dog’s personality. If your dog has a strong temper, it’s probably best to go for a dog sitter who has a good level of experience. The same applies if your dog needs to take medicines. Not all dog sitters know how to give dogs their treatment. On Holidog, all details are displayed on the dog sitters’ profile to make it easy for you to choose.
