Find A Pet Sitter

If you’re going on holiday or need to be away for a few days, you’ll need someone to look after your dog. Finding the perfect pet sitter doesn’t have to be complicated. You just need to know what your options are. Keep reading to know more!

Ask a friend or a relative to be your pet sitter

Asking friends or family is the easiest and cheapest way to find a dog sitter. It’ll save you from spending hours browsing through ads and registering on far too many websites. And chances are, it won’t cost you a thing. If your dog is shy and not comfortable around strangers, then having a familiar around is just the perfect solution.

Use a dedicated service to find a pet sitter

You’ll find plenty of small ads and dedicated pet sitting services on the Internet. Holidog, for instance, offers some of the best pet sitting services at affordable rates. You just need to enter your postcode to see all the people looking for pets to take care of near you. Enter the dates to see all the people who are available at that time. Simple!

Once you have the results, you can go on comparing the rates and read the reviews left by other pet owners. As a rule of thumb, always get in touch with your potential pet sitter before booking. You need to be 100% sure that you’re happy to leave your dog to the care of this person.

If all is fine, then place your booking. You can arrange for him/her to come and meet your dog before you leave. The first meet and greet is a good way to turn a complete stranger into a more familiar face.

A few things you need to know before booking a pet sitter

Don’t wait until the last minute to find someone to look after your pet. Some times of year are busier than others and you don’t want to end up having to leave your dog with someone you don’t fully trust. Start looking for a dog sitter at least two to three weeks before your departure date.

The same goes for asking friends or family. Don’t assume someone will be available for pet sitting. Ask around as early as you can and pick the person you trust the most to take care of your dog.
