Pet Sitter

Going away on vacation or a business trip can be very exciting, but it can also be stressful if you have a furry friend at home. While you may feel guilty leaving your pet behind, hiring a pet sitter like Daily Dog Walkers and Pet Sitters can put your mind at ease and ensure your pet is well-cared for while you’re away. Here’s how to prepare for a pet sitter before taking a trip.

Essential Supplies for Your Pet:

Before you leave, make sure you have enough supplies for your pet to last until you return. This includes food, treats, medication, and any other essentials your pet needs daily. Consult online resources or ask your vet to see which items are vet-approved to ensure your pet stays healthy and happy while you’re gone.

Ensure Your Pets Safety with Updated ID Tags:

Before you leave, ensure your pets ID tags are up to date with your current
contact information. In case your pet gets lost or wanders away, your pet sitter can
help reunite them with you as quickly as possible. It’s also a good idea to leave
your sitter with a recent photo of your pet, just in case. [Read more…]
