This should always be a topic discussed in a meet and greet.

How can I make sure a Service Provider is the right fit for my pets?  

See our blog post for an in depth article on this! We strongly suggest thoroughly discussing your pet care needs with your sitter and having a meet and greet prior entering into any agreement, business, contract, or relationship with any Service Provider. A meet and greet is a great way to get to know a potential Service Provider and see how they interact with your pet(s). Ask for references and check them! Check their listing on Great Pet Sitters and see if they have any reviews posted.

Please remember that Great Pet Sitters is only a listing service to connect Great Pet Sitters with Pet Owners, we are not involved in any part of the agreement or contract between the Service Provider and Pet Owner.
