Cats, and some other small pets, may try to test their limits – similar to what children do when their parents are away. Your Pet Sitter should be informed of any methods of training that you use to manage your pet’s possible behavior problems.
Some pets get separation anxiety and like to chew things up when owners are away. Potentially dangerous plants or decorations should be put somewhere that your pets won’t be able to get to them. Keep this in mind especially during the Holidays when greenery, candles, chocolates, and other decorations are on display.
Ensure that any access to the pool or garage is blocked to pets, as these are potentially dangerous places. Notify your Pet Sitter of any other rooms, furniture, or outdoor areas that are off-limits to your pet.
