Choosing A Sitter for Your Bichon

No matter how much you do not want to leave your Bichon, it is inevitable that it will happen sooner or later. But leaving your Bichon should not cause that much trouble if you can get the services of a reliable dog sitter.

A dog sitter is someone who can take care of your dog while you are away - much like a babysitter with babies. The only problem now is how do you choose a dog sitter who will take care of your loving pet while you are away. Here are some tips that may help you in choosing a dog sitter.

Ask Around for a Bichon Sitter

One of the best ways to find the that dog sitter you want is by asking other people who have asked for the help of dog sitters. This can be your neighbors or your relatives. By word of mouth, they can tell you whether a certain sitter is good at his job or not. They may also be able to refer you to sitters whom they have had good experiences with.

Ask Your Bichon to Give a Recommendation

Look in the directory for people who offer their services as dog sitters. You can ask these potentials to go to your house and let them interact with your dog. You can base your decision whether to hire that person or not by observing the chemistry between your dog and him or her. If you think they have good chemistry, then you can go ahead and ask for that sitter's services. But if they do not go along well with each other, then thank the sitter for his or her time.

Someone With Experience Dealing With Bichons

You want somebody who has had experience in the area of dog sitting. Most of the time, somebody with experience will somehow give better service than newbies, but this not usually the case. You could also hire somebody with little experience if you, with your instincts, tell you that he or she will be a good dog sitter for your pet.

Make Sure the Bichon Sitter Has Insurance

Even though it is not a must, it would still be good if the dog sitter you hire has insurance. This will somehow ensure the safety of your dog although this does not necessarily ensure that your dog will be given total quality care.

Read the Fine Print If Your Sitter and You Have a Contract

Be sure to choose someone who is willing to undergo signing of contracts on whatever agreement you may both have. This will somehow show the character of the dog sitter – he or she will really do his or her best to take care of your dog. Aside from the character evaluation, this will also give you written and legal proof if something goes wrong along the way.
