WRITTEN DISASTER PLAN
We at Comforts of Home Pet Sitting LLC ask every client for an emergency contact/backup person at our initial meet and greet conference. It is best if that person is within walking distance of your home in case roads are impassible due to flooding, snow, ice, etc.
In the event that neither Cathy Clark nor Mark Clark are able to visit your pet(s) for any reason, we will do the following:
1. Call the client(s) at every phone number that was provided and leave a message stating the nature of
2. Call the emergency contact/backup person that was provided by the client(s).
3. Contact other pet sitters or family members who might be able to visit your pet(s).
If we are unable to visit due to bad weather conditions, we will arrive as soon as the weather conditions allow us to do so safely.
If you have not already provided a good backup person(s), please do so as soon as possible.
Why Should I Hire a Professional Dog Walker or
Mid-Day Pet Sitter While I am at Work?
- Some dogs cannot hold their urine as long as others -- particularly the very young and very old, or those with health issues. A mid-day pet sit visit can bring them great relief while their owners are away at work.
- Some dogs have way too much energy to be crated for long periods or left alone to get bored for long periods. A mid-day walk or play time gives them an appropriate and enjoyable way to release some of that energy and to get exercise and mental stimulation.
- Do you often wish that you could go to the gym after work, do some shopping, or meet some friends, but you need to go home instead to let your dogs out? A pet sitter is a wonderful solution to allow you more freedom with less guilt.
- Dogs are social animals who very much enjoy the company of others. If you are leaving your dog alone much of the time, please consider how much happier he or she would be with the stimulation of a walk or play time with a pet sitter.
- Many people work long hours away from home and may even have a long commute to work. If that is your situation, please know that a pet sitter or dog walker is a wonderful option to allow you peace of mind and to bring some joy to your dogs.
Why Should I Hire a Professional Pet Sitter?
- Most pets will be more comfortable, happier, and healthier staying in their own home as opposed to being transported elsewhere.
- Save yourself the hassle of transporting your pets.
- If you have more than 1 pet, you will probably save money by hiring a professional pet sitter.
- When you travel, a pet sitter can give your home the appearance that somebody is there by opening and closing blinds or curtains, turning lights on and off, and bringing in mail, newspapers, and flyers, which is a good crime deterrent.
- You do not have to feel like you are burdening your friends or family members with the responsibility of caring for your pets when you travel. Professional pet sitters are less likely to forget to visit than neighbors and friends who are not accustomed to this daily responsibility.
- If your water heater springs a leak, or a similar problem occurs, a pet sitter will be there to discover the problem and notify you about it.
- A pet sitter can water your plants and possibly provide other services while you travel.
- A pet sitter will give your pets lots of individual love and attention right at home.
Be sure to choose a well-qualified, fully insured and bonded professional pet sitter with good references, and book as early as possible since good pet sitters are in high demand.
