Why Should I Schedule My Pet Sitting Services In Advance?

May 20, 2014 - By Kelly’s Pet Sitting

At a minimum you should schedule your pet sitting visits at least a week in advance when it’s not a holiday, at least 2-4 weeks when you will be needing visits during a holiday period. Summer is also a high demand time when people schedule vacations. What is the point to scheduling early?

First and foremost it greatly increases your chances of your pet sitter having availability. Pet sitting is scheduled on a “first come, first serve” basis because we only have so many hours in the day and can’t be everywhere at one time. If you get on the books far in advance, you don’t have to worry about your sitter being available or not.

Secondly, it is courteous. Contrary to popular belief pet sitters do have lives outside of taking care of everyone’s pets all day. We have friends, family and other personal obligations that we do our best to schedule around our pet sitting visits. When a last minute request for pet sitting comes in, often times in order to meet those needs your pet sitter has to give up something they had already planned.

While we, and the vast majority of pet sitters, do our best to accommodate last minute requests we so greatly appreciate and value the clients who take the time to be prepared and schedule their pet sitting services 1-4 weeks ahead of time.

Scheduling in advance, also gives the customer time to meet the sitter and watch the interaction of their pets with the sitter. If necessary you can schedule a follow up visit to see the sitter deal with your pets, maybe a walk or time when you are not home so the pets and sitter are acquainted with each other without your presence, animals act differently when owners are not there. It helps relieve possible stress later for fearful pets.

Leaving your pets care for while you are gone to the last minute can cause unnecessary stress before you leave and for your pet while you are away. Quality care for your pet is so important for you to travel worry free and most of all for your pets sake.
