When Should I Book My Pet Sitter?

The holidays are coming, the holidays are coming!  When should I book my pet sitter?  I can do it last minute can’t I?  I’m sure they will be available…

Not necessarily!  As soon as you have your holiday vacation planned, book your pet sitting services.  Pet sitters only have so many visits they can make in a day.  If you are looking for overnight pet sitting, your pet sitter can only sleep with one family at a time.  That significantly reduces your chances of your pet sitter being available to you the closer and closer you get to your expected vacation.

For example:  We are BOOKED for overnight and live in services for the week of Christmas.  Holidays are prime for vacations and keep pet sitters busy.

What if I book early and realize I need to cancel?  Our cancellation policy states that if you cancel an overnight or live in within 2 weeks of the service start date you will be charged 50% of the original invoice amount.  If you cancel with more than 2 weeks notice there is no cancellation fee.

The moral of the story???  Book your services as soon as you know you are traveling, or, realize you may be looking for a pet sitter last minute.
