The pet sitters and dog walkers of Just Around the Corner are hard-working sitters that strive to provide the best care to you and your pet. We aim to ensure you have peace of mind when leaving your pet with us. Our pet sitters are dedicated and insured pet professionals that take their job very seriously. For Professional Pet Sitters Week, we would like to share five ways to show your pet sitter some appreciation for all the hard work they do. We love taking care of your pet and love to see our care appreciated! Here are some ways you can show us your support.
Leave a Tip
Our pet sitters aim to provide the best service to all our clients. Leaving a tip for your pet sitter is the most direct way to thank your sitter. Only a portion of the pet sitting service price goes to the pet sitter, so a bonus is sure to make them feel appreciated. If you feel like your pet sitter did a fantastic job and went above and beyond, be sure to show your appreciation with a little extra tip for all their hard work. Tips can be left in cash, or charged through your Pet Portal profile.
Leave a Review and Like Our Page
Leaving an excellent online review for our business can go a long way. Great reviews attract new clients, and existing clients stay loyal to our services. Positive reviews improve our reputation online and in reality. Liking our social media pages also enhances our reputation and helps us stand out. In fact, don’t just like our page — follow us! You may get to see some great pets – maybe even your own. Don’t forget to take a couple of minutes to leave us a review or comment on our services. Feel free to mention by name the pet sitters who provided care for your pet.
Referrals go a long way since they are personal reviews given out to friends, family, and people you know. People are more likely to go with a service that you vouch for and recommend. If you feel like your pet sitter does a fantastic job, please tell everyone you know. This word-of-mouth message grows the business and truly shows your pet sitter the appreciation you have for them.
Leave Clear Instructions (and Snacks Help too!)
Pet sitting can be a complicated job with various schedules to follow every day. Everyone has a different routine for their pet, and it is the pet sitter’s job to complete that routine. Any pet sitter will agree that keeping pet care information updated in your pet profile allows your pet to follow their routine a lot more smoothly than unclear and broad instructions. Pet sitters want to do a good job, so leaving them with a detailed list of tasks and responsibilities helps them get the job done right. Leaving snacks is also a nice little gesture to show your pet sitter some appreciation.
Stay in Contact and Keep Us Updated
Pet Sitters love to send you updates on how your pet is doing while caring for your pet. They understand that you are busy while you’re away, so you may not have time to always be in touch. But please respond to your pet sitter from time to time. They like to know that you are receiving their messages and that all is well. Pet sitters also appreciate being updated on any changes made to your return or travel so that they can complete all their tasks accurately and before you get home.
After our services are completed, we still love to hear from you. When clients send our pet sitters holiday cards or images of their pets, we truly feel like our services impacted their lives. Sharing your pet photos with us helps pet sitters feel appreciated and loved.
The pet-sitting industry is a busy one and keeps us on our toes every day.

Our pet sitters are hard-working and qualified individuals that only want to provide the best service and company to you and your pets.
