In this article, I have
listed down some of the most helpful dog sitter tips that you need to keep in
mind before hiring a dog sitter. So what are these tips? Well, here’s what they
Your dog will never
love you as much again. That’s why it is important to have a sitter who cares
about your dog. You don’t want to find out that a sitter doesn’t actually like
your dog because then they are not going to want to watch your dog at all.
Anybody can do
training. Remember, most sitters are for-profit companies so they usually have
trained dog sitters on their payroll.
If you have different
homes and dogs and don’t know where they are, then it will be very easy for
them to come into contact with each other and harm each other. You can take
this risk having a certain dog getting hurt.
Some dogs get attached
to their owners. Although it may sound a bit odd, many owners are too
protective. So, if you have dogs that you are training, then don’t hesitate to
supervise the training sessions.
Remember, there are
many people out there looking for a sitter to look after their dog. So try and
get recommendations from friends and family first before hiring a sitter to
watch your dog.
The people who come to
see the sitter, they will usually pay a fee to the sitter for their time. This
can be a good idea if you have lots of spare time on your hands.
The sitter will watch
your dog from a distance and make notes of where your dog goes and when he/she
goes there. This makes it easier for the sitter to assess the behavior of your
dog. This makes it more likely that the sitter will know when your dog needs
some form of training.
To have a trainer work
with your dog, you will need to pay an extra fee. However, the advantage of
this type of training is that your dog will be more motivated to learn new
tricks and commands. This makes your dog learn faster and get better results.
You will need to get
the sitter to hold your dog very firmly and quickly. This is to ensure that
your dog isn’t hurt or frightened by something that comes close to the dog.
Finally, remember that
training your dog is a very tedious task. You will need to be patient and
dedicated to making it happen. So whatever you do, don’t be discouraged or put
off your training because the rewards will be great.
