The truth of the matter is that if the homeowner wants to go away, the sitter is not receiving an entirely free holiday, especially if the owner is gone for a long period of time. You may be wondering how long is a pet sitting assignment? It really depends. I have been in the same house for a week and other times it has been six weeks.
Pet sitting is not like doggy daycare and it is better for your pets than having them at a dog boarding facility. Both, along with dog walking, require the pet owner to pay for services. So, if a pet sitter is doing these things (and a lot more), why should they not get paid? There are more responsibilities for pet care and taking care of your home than these three things. A pet sitter (a dog sitter, cat sitter, bunny sitter, and any other animal (fish, chickens, farm animals, birds, etc.)) are also a house sitter. Click on the buttons below for more information.

Most homeowners’ insurance Will NOT cover any damage or theft to a home if someone has not been in it and check that everything is ok at least every three days. In some cases, it’s every 48-hours.
