When you are gone

When you want or need to go out of town, and you need someone to care for your dogs and cats, what do you do?

Many people choose a relative or a neighbor to step in and help. You must be sure that they know the routine that you follow. Animals get use to a certain routine and when it is disrupted, things can go wrong. They might urinate on the rug, or get into the trash basket. Write down how you normally do things, feeding time, walk time, treat time.

Write it down on a pad and see that they get it. Let the sitter know when you will return. Put the food where the sitter can find it easily. Be sure that water is available for the time you are gone.
