Our recent post on pet sitters brought a great response from numerous readers.
Two are set out below:
..."It amazes me how many people consider their pets children yet don't think they have to pay for pet sitting services, especially if you stay at their home. While being able to stay "for free," when you are taking care of a pet your time is not your own. You have to accommodate the pets' schedule of walks and feedings. I really don't understand why people don't think
pet sitters deserve to be compensated for putting their pets first..."
..."I am a pet sitter and these are very good tips to give travelers. I also require my pet sitting clients to fill out a veterinary release form authorizing me to seek medical care should the need arise while the owners are away..."
You thoughts are still welcome.
