Audrey by codifyer / Finding a pet sitter at hotels & resorts

Pets are welcome at many seaside and vacation spots.

They are not usually allowed to stay in the rooms by themselves unless crated.

Dogs left alone in a strange place can get into mischief, damage the premises and bark at neighbors.

During the cold winter months or in the heat of the summer, it is not advisable to leave them in cars.

The best solution is to hire a professional sitter to come a stay with your pets while you dine and dance.

An experienced minder will have a relationship with the resort hotel and be referred by them to clients. Check whether the pet sitter is insured, licensed, and well recommended. If possible have the pet sitter meet your animals before the sit. This gives the client an opportunity to get a ‘feel’ for the person who will be caring for their animals and give the sitter an opportunity to be advised of any behavioral or medical issues, and make friends with the pet before being responsible for them.

 It is smart to arrange for a sitter before you travel especially during peak travel seasons. Ask at your hotel when you make your reservations for their policy and recommendation. Area pet stores are also a good resource for finding trusted local businesses.

If your sitter does a good job for you, remember to give them a thumbs up when you check out.

Then the Hotel is happy and the sitter is assured of future reference.
