What is your greatest tip to other pet sitters?
“When the pet is with the sitter, he/she should pay extra attention to the pet. After all he is a guest and he should be well looked after. Keep him busy so that he does not miss his owners when he is with you. Play with him and change different toys every now and again. Try to make his stay interesting and entertaining as this is a holiday for him from his normal daily routine. So remember make it an interesting and an enjoyable stay for your adorable guest!”
"It was a hot summer's day and we were minding nine dogs all at the same time."
What is a fun story from your pet sitting experience?
“It was a hot summer's day and we were minding nine dogs all at the same time. Trying to keep them entertained in the heat was a challenge. We filled up water in the baby bath tubs, buckets, big water bowls, and some small ceramic bowls for the small dogs. My son Randeep whistled and the whole battalion came charging towards him, and the moment they saw the water, some jumped into the tubs, some dunked their heads into the buckets and the others dug their paws into the bowls.....and all you could see was water splashing everywhere. It did not stop there. Randeep picked up the garden hose to refill the tubs etc., but seeing the hose they all ran towards us,shaking water off themselves. It was hilarious. They were drying themselves, but in return, Randeep and myself were drenched from head to toe. We couldn't stop laughing and the dogs kept barking. When the hose tap opened, they jumped over the tubs etc. to catch the stream. It was like taking part in an obstacle race. They ran back and forth, barking and jumping over the obstacles, splashing water on each other and we were soaked as well. We laughed till our cheek bones were sore and could laugh no more; but the dogs kept playing in the water for over an hour. Finally we stopped, dried them up with towels and hair dryers, gave them all some snacks, and fifteen minutes later all we could hear was loud snoring. Randeep and myself kept laughing. It was unbelievable!! It was so much fun we couldn't stop laughing. Ha ha ha! “
