A good pet sitter to care for your pet is not a very difficult person to find.  Pet sitters are individuals who will take care of your pet when you are not around to do so yourself.  They are people who will ensure your pet is in safe hands and who you can trust to stay with your pet.  It is good to look for professional pet sitters, either by looking on the Internet or asking others for recommendations.  These companies offer several options and you can easily pick and choose the best pet sitter from the bunch.  You can also ask your pet’s veterinarian if they might recommend someone.
Pet sitting should be performed only by a professional pet sitter or at least someone who has some type of experience.  They should be people who can handle every situation, even in the case of an emergency.  They should also treat your pet with tolerance and be patient.  It is important for a pet sitterto love animals and it is even better if they have pets in their home.  They need to understand that every animal is different and spend some time in understanding and bonding with your pet.
Before you hire a pet sitter, here are some important questions to ask them:
1.  How much experience do you have?
2.  What are your qualifications when it comes to pet sitting?
3.  How much do you charge?
4.  What are your scheduling timeframes?
5.  Have you ever been faced with a pet emergency?  If so, how did you handle it?
6.  Do you love animals?
7.  Do you know basic medical aid when it comes to a pet emergency?
8.  How will you bond with my pet?
9.  Tell me a little bit about your prior pet sitting jobs?
10.  How will you handle it if my pet runs away?
After asking the pet sitterthe questions above, see how they respond to each one.  If their answers are right on target with how you would like them to be, then the individual who answers the questions in the best possible manner is usually a wise choice for a new pet sitter
