PET SITTING IN YOUR OWN HOME

With the growth of pet sitting options in the UK, new forms of sitting have emerged. Indeed an example of this is that today you can organise pet sitting in your own home, ideal for animals that cannot cope with a change of surroundings.

What does pet sitting in your own home involve ?

When you choose pet sitting in your own home, you are opting for a solution which involves the sitter staying in your home for the period that you’re away. As the sitter will be sleeping in your house this ensures that your pet is never left alone at night.

Why opt for pet sitting in your own home ?

Pet sitting in your own home is ideal for animals which cannot cope with a change of surroundings. Some animals cannot be without their owners, while others cannot bear a change of environment. In order not to distress their animals while they’re away, some owners prefer to leave their pets at home and arrange for a sitter to come to stay.

How much does pet sitting in your own home cost ?

The price of pet sitting in your own home is generally calculated according to the number of nights. In addition to the basic price for the service, you’ll need to pay the sitter’s travel expenses for a return journey to your home. However you won’t need to cover their other expenses during the stay – these remain their responsibility.

What to do if there’s a problem during pet sitting in your own home.

For pet sitting in your home, the sitter naturally undertakes to comply with any house rules you set. For example they must leave your home in a clean and tidy state. And if any problems arise during the sitting there are some sites which offer an emergency service, available from start to finish.

Which sitter should I choose to look after my pet ?

When you choose pet sitting in your own home, you are going to be entrusting the keys of your home to a stranger. For your peace of mind therefore, it’s important to select the right sitter to take care of your pet during your absence. To do that you need to specifiy your selection criteria so you can find the ideal pet sitter.

What information should I give about my pets ?

As with all pet sitting options you should give all relevant details about your pet(s). Your pet will be looked after by a perfect stranger while you’re away, so it’s important to fill the sitter in on its daily routines and other relevant details. You can do this by completing a profile of your pet.
