1.) Background and Experience
Almost everyone loves pets! So, why cant just anyone take care of yours?
A trusted Pet Care Professional has experience far beyond just caring for pets of their own.
They have first hand experience with all different sizes, breed, temperament, and activity levels of pets.
A Pet Care Professional has worked with trusted professionals in Veterinary medicine, Dog trainers, Groomers, and other Pet Professionals in order to understand what your pet might need, as well as potential safety and health concerns.
Pet Care Professionals have taken courses to understand pet behavior to be able to spot signs early that something may be wrong with your pet
Pet Care Professionals are insured companies. This keeps you, your pet, and your home protected from accidents and dishonest persons.
Insured Pet Care Providers keep you protected if an emergency were to occur- such as your dog bolting out of the front door and getting injured.
Insurance also protects the home and repairing your property in case of an accident- such as a faucet left on causing flooding on the bathroom floor ruining your cabinets and walls
3.) Emergency Backup Plans
In an emergency, do you trust that your friend who PROMISED to check on your dog will show up?
When choosing a trusted Pet Care Professional they have plans of emergency.
If your assigned sitter cannot show up for whatever reason, they have plans of action to make sure that your pet is still cared for.
Professional Pet Care providers have plans for everything from natural disasters, car accidents, pet emergencies, lock malfunctions on the home, illness and everything between
You get the peace of mind knowing that your pet is not forgotten about and you can lay sit on the beach enjoying your vacation
4.) Set Policies and Service Agreements
A Professional Pet Care Company will have service agreements and policies in place that you review and sign before you have a service begin.
This helps set the expectation for the care your pets will receive, as well as prices, cancellation policies, and terms of service. This ensures that there will be no surprises for you to worry about
5.) Keeping Your Personal Information Safe
When someone is caring for your home and pets while you are away, you have to provide a lot of sensitive information. This includes your address, knowledge of a vacant home, how to access the home- such as a key, door codes, garage codes, hidden key locations and alarm codes. This information is a serious threat to your security and peace of mind.
Many hobby sitters or friends/family will keep a key on their key rings and have your private info written down on a piece of paper. This leaves you extremely vulnerable to unwelcomed eyes and access
Professional Pet Care Companies have ways to safely and securely store private information about the home, lock boxes for keys, private and secure ways to tag keys, and polices and procedures to keep your information secure!
6.) Care Updates During Your Services
Professional Pet Care providers have structured ways that they share visit updates. You get constant updates about your home and pet while you are away, with messages, pictures, walk tracking maps, and more that give you the peace of mind knowing that your home and pets are in great hands and you can see that they are providing the services agreed upon and promised to you
7.) Taking the Pain out of Payments
Services and prices vary from one Pet Care company to the next. When choosing to book with a professional, you know what services will be provided, and how much that service will cost up front, with no surprises. This helps you to set your budget before your trip, because you know exactly how much is needed for the pet care before you even pack your bags! You will have an agreement up front of the total cost, when it is expected to be paid, and ways to pay it! Professional Pet Care providers offer simple ways for you to pay your invoice that make it convenient for you and the company.
8.) Websites, Business Pages, References and Reviews
Transparency is key to trusting someone with what you care about the most! A Professional Pet Care servicer provides this by letting you get to know them before ever meeting them.
You can see their business pages, their policies, and prices on their pages, and how they are interacting with pets and clients through their posts on social media.
You can also see the team of care givers that the might company have, with profiles and information about all their employees. This helps you to know who will be meeting before your trip and who in your home while you are gone. There are no surprises on who you have trusted to provide care.
Reviews for the business across multiple platforms help show real client reviews and weed out padded information of fake reviews or friends and family only references.
Professional Pet Care providers have reviews on multiple pages like google, social media, and any other review pages
Reading through all good and bad reviews is important, but also gives you a chance to read poor reviews and the company's response to that review. This can show how the company handles customer service and how you might be treated a customer/client of theirs
9.) Team of Professionals
Many Professional Pet Care providers have more than one sitter/walker. This helps to ensure that care is provided given an emergency or extenuating circumstance leaving a solo sitter unavailable.
A Professional company will make sure you get the opportunity to get to know the different sitters so you feel comfortable and trust that uniform, professional, and excellent care for your pet and home is being provided
