You could find a kennel or other place to board them, but it may be easier for you and your pet if they stay in their own home and have a pet sitter to look after them. Choosing the right pet sitter can give you great peace of mind while you are away. There are lots of advertisements, both on line, in the phone book, and even on your local community bulletin board for pet sitting services.

From all these, you want to choose the one that best suits your needs and the needs of your pet. Before you contact one of the pet sitters, it's a good idea to prepare a list of questions you'd like them to answer about their experience, rates, and what they will do to care for you pet. Some pets are easier to care for than others.

If you only have some fish, then the pet sitter may not have to do much more than feed them and make sure their water is clean. If you have a dog, cat, bird or other pet, things can be more complicated.

A dog will need to be fed played with and walked. A cat will need similar care and also will need to have it's litter box cleaned. A bird will need fresh food and water, and if it's a member of the parrot family, it will also require a lot of specialized care and attention. If you have a more "exotic' pet, your pet sitter will need to have experience in caring for that type of animal.

If your pet requires a special diet or medication, make sure the sitter is comfortable giving it to them. Make sure that they know just what care your pet needs and are able to provide it. It's a good idea to have the pet sitter come over to your home to meet your pet and get to know them a bit before you leave on your travels.

You'll be able to see how the sitter interacts with your pet, and the sitter will find out what your pet is like. Your pet will also feel more secure if they are being cared for by someone they know. When making the final arrangements with your pet sitter, you should prepare something in writing that outlines what they will charge, what services they will provide, and what they should do in case of an emergency.

You'll also need to make sure that you have left plenty of food, toys and any medicine your pet may need. Leave the number of your veterinarian and also your contact information so the sitter can reach you if there is a problem. Having a pet doesn't mean that you can't travel, but it does mean that you need to take some extra time to make sure that they will be looked after while you are away. A pet sitter can be an excellent way to make sure you pet is well cared for while you are gone.
