Part of Boston Terriers For Dummies Cheat Sheet

If you prefer pet sitters to boarding facilities, but you’re not lucky enough to have a friend or neighbor help out, you can hire a professional pet sitter for your Boston Terrier. Make sure you ask these questions to find a trustworthy and dependable pet sitter:

  • Do you belong to a professional pet-sitting organization, such as the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters?

  • Do you have references? If so, can I contact them?

  • Are you insured and bonded?

  • How long have you been working as a pet sitter? Have you ever dog-sat a Boston Terrier?

  • What experience do you have with medical care? Do you know canine first aid?

  • Will you stay in my home, or will you come by several times a day?

  • If you’re coming by several times during the day, what times will you come over? How long will you stay?

  • What do you charge for your services, both staying at my home and coming over during the day?
