    Default Pet sitting???

    We are going away in a few weeks for 9 days...we are looking at getting a friend to come and stay at the house and watch the animals, I will pay for her flights $50 each way....do you think that's is enough or should I pay her cash on top if that...????

    Default Pet sitting???

    When we went overseas for 5 weeks on our honeymoon, we had a family friend stay with our dogs. We paid her $500 total.

    We pay a Carer from an agency to feed our 2 cats when we go away, he comes twice a day for 30mins each visit, and he charges $30 a day, not ideal for long trips but great for short breaks and the cats love him and don't get stressed by going to a cattery

    Default Pet sitting???

    A friend of mine is my pet sitter. I stock the fridge and pantry with lots of good food and I get her a present from wherever I have been.

    She loves my cat so she would do it for nothing, but I think it's nice to get her a great gift. Last time I got her some amazing handmade chocolates and a bottle of wine from the winery we stayed at.

    Maybe you could do something like that? A bit of spending money might be good to especially if they are not local....

    I don't know what's usually done but I finish dog sitting for my nan today. She has paid me $400 for two weeks and told me this is what she pays when she gets someone else in.

    Default Pet sitting???

    If I get a pet sitter in I pay for transport, stock the fridge and lend them my car. I usually bring a small gift home but if they need more food etc they can buy it. Everyone I have used have seemed to be happy with this arrangement.

    Default Pet sitting???

    I'm really funny about who I let sit the "girls" that said I either use a close friend or my parents (we are lucky like this) while we don't pay anything they have a freezer full of food, and all the facilities of the house, and we buy them a gift! Probably not the answer you needed but thought I'd throw my two cents worth in
