They’re Willing to Be Interviewed
During the meet and greet, ask the sitter detailed questions about his or her background and pet sitting history to get a feel for his or her character. Most trained professionals will appreciate the vetting process and won’t mind being interviewed for the job.
According to Cathleen Delaney, administrative director of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters, most sitters will share the same basic qualities. “The qualities of a good pet sitter should always be experienced, committed, qualified, educated and professional,” says Delaney. “Most every professional sitter should carry those qualities.”
