When you are looking for a person to walk your dog we have a few tips so you avoid hiring a person that is not matching the personlity of your furry baby!
1: We think that the best way to start looking for a reputable Dog Walker is to ask your friends, neighbours, colleages for recommendations. They will give you their honest opinion You can have a read on our testimonial page https://www.petsittingdubai.com/testimonials or on our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HappyTailsDubai/ to read what our previous and current clients have to say about us.
2: If you choose a Dog walker, arrange a first meeting so you get the know your Pet Sitter and you can see the reaction of your dog, this reaction is crucial. Don't trust a Pet sitter that doesn't asks 101 questions about your sweet puppy, your Pet Sitter needs to know it all...
3: Ask your Pet Sitter all the questions you need to know: Does your Pet Sitter have a licence? How much experience does your Pet Sitter have? What training did they do? How long is the actual walk? What happens in case of an emergency, Will the Pet Sitter you meet, be the person handling your doggy or will they send someone else? Just make sure you ask whatever is on your mind because in the end of the day, you need to trust this person who will take care of your sweet pup!
4: Do a trial. Yes, that's it. I know its hard but hand the leash over and let your doggy and Pet Sitter go on a test walk! And again, you will see by your pups reaction if it was fun! Dog's eyes don't lie.
5: Trust your gut feeling! Your gut feeling is always right. Only go for it when you have a good feeling because your doggy only deserves the best!
