Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I recently Pet sat 2 weeks for:
15 guinea pigs (boys n girls),
a room full of wonderful exotic large birds,
n a couple turtles! It was a zoo literally! But I loved it!! ❤️
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
Meet with the intended person, talk on the phone to get a feel for the person and their lifestyle and how they are about their own animals n other people's animals. Trust your gut. If you don't feel comfortable ask more questions or visit with them again to be sure. If you're still uneasy find another Pet Sitter or Boarding person. Ask for references and talk with others who can recommend someone to you they've had great experiences sitting for their pets.
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
What rules do they have surrounding your pet's stay that you like or have concerns about? How accommodating are they to your pet's needs, likes, and dislikes, quirky things your pet/s may have, or about their bedding or toy issues? How can they meet any health issues your pet/s may have?
