postheadericon Informing Your Pet Sitter

When it comes to owning and raising a pet, things can be pretty demanding. After all, a pet is just a furry child. A pet has many of the same needs as a human child, and naturally, we love our pets as we would our own children. So, of course this is demanding work, and it will require sacrifice. However, just like with children, you can eventually leave them home alone or with a sitter so that you can resume some of the activities you left behind in order to raise your pet. Therefore, before you book a tour with Experiencias Xcaret, you’re going to want to assess your pet’s needs so that you can fill in your sitter when it’s time to head out. Here are the basics of what your sitter needs to know about your pet.

First and foremost, we’re all creatures of habit, literal creatures most definitely included. Therefore, be sure to make note of your pet’s routine, which should by now largely resemble your own, of course, so that you can let your sitter know when to do certain things, such as walking your dog, and when to let your dog outside to use the bathroom. Since things occur just about the same time every day, at least ideally, your sitter has less to worry about if you give them a rough idea of when these things should occur. While the time of day of your dog’s walk is relatively trivial and arbitrary, when your pet needs food and water, as well as to be let out to use the bathroom, are more important Therefore, you’ll want your sitter to have the pertinent information regarding these things.

Another important facet of raising a pet that your sitter needs to know is about exercise. I mentioned walking your dog above, but, of course, this is not the full story where exercise is concerned. This is perhaps the best form of exercise for your pooch, but playing with toys around the house is a different kind of workout that your doggo needs, so your sitter should know what playing entails. For starters, let your sitter know where to find toys, assuming that your pet hasn’t lost them all or deliberately hid them from you. IT’s largely obvious what kind of play a given toy can accomplish, but let your sitter know if there are any anomalies. For example, my own husky puppy likes to play with the empty husks of his old stuffed animals. After ripping them apart and tearing out the stuffing, he continues to play with the outer shell, and it’s things like this that aren’t as obvious. Especially because to an untrained eye, such a “toy” might resemble a dead rodent, which would be a problem and not at all outside of your pet’s wheel house in most cases.
