How Does 24 Hour Live-In Pet Sitting Work?
I will stay in your home, bring along my own toiletries, food and drinks, and provide my own bedding to place on top of your bed or futon of choice. (Please no sofas, old-school sofa beds, or mattresses on the floor.) I require up to a 6 hour time break per day (taken in part or in whole) to leave your residence for personal errands or provide care for other client’s pets. I may not always use this time, but do like to have it available.
- I require access to a secured and reliable WiFi connection
- Doors/windows and door/window locks at ALL points of entry in good repair
- All exterior lights, especially at main points of entry, are in working order
- Functional fire/carbon monoxide alarms in key areas
- Active home security alarm system, preferred
- Off-street parking (driveway or garage)
