Specific care requirements obviously differ depending on the nature of the pet, but generally anything and everything normally associated with responsible pet ownership is expected to be attended to, including regular feeding, grooming, exercising, any vet needs, etc. Any costs of these items (such as vet bills) are born by the Home Owner, but the House Sitter makes certain they are taken care of.

Both parties should agree as to what is expected of the House Sitter regarding pet care and key details will be recorded, such as names and contact details for the Home Owner's regular vet, etc.

 

Rest assured, we *love* pets of all kinds, and will care for your animals as if they were our own while you are away, and keep them as happy as possible until you are able to return to them.
