Our sitters are employees, not independent contractors.* This means that they have been thoroughly screened, trained and background checked, and must follow the guidelines we've developed over the last 15 years. Our employees are also bonded and insured, and are covered by our Worker's Compensation policy. They also receive pet first aid/CPR training and are provided with monthly ongoing training.
You will always have the opportunity to meet your sitter before he/she enters your home. We are very proud of our exceptional staff!
*Many other pet sitting/dog walking services (including Wag and Rover) use contractors, not employees. Companies that use independent contractors have no control over how much training their sitters receive or how they do their job. They also are not covered by Worker's Compensation. Not all are bonded and insured, it is up to you to ask/verify if they are.
