As if travelling for the holidays isn’t stressful enough, being separated from your pets can be difficult. To give yourself (and your furry friends) a peace of mind before choosing a sitter, schedule a meet-and-greet before you go away.
Find a day and a time that works for you and your potential sitter, making sure your pet is present—this could be at either of your homes, or even a park. Says Aaron Easterly, CEO of Rover.com, a dog-sitting community service, “Meeting in person will give you a good feel on how the sitter will interact with your dog while you’re away.”
