When you find a great pet sitter and are considering hiring them, ask your neighbors and family about the company. You will be surprised at just how often they can provide you with information about the company and can help you to have the best possible results.
Most pet sitters are required by law to be licensed. As a pet owner, you want to make sure that this is the case with the facility that you consider using. Ask about their licensing so that you know fully what to expect. Most should display this license openly.
