Do you have a pet care safety plan? Have the families you work for given you emergency contacts? This re-useable, just-in-case checklist for pet sitters and dog walkers will help you keep track of emergency contacts, procedures, and health concerns for all the animals you care for.

Keep a copy on the refrigerator or make sure you have one with you each time you're on the job. If there's an emergency while you're working, this handy checklist will tell you what to do and who to call.

Stay safe!

The Pet Sitter Safety Checklist is both important and resourceful. I plan on giving my current and future pet parents this so we have the pet information easily obtainable for all of us.

That's a good idea, just in case! I'm hoping to find a pet care job soon, because I've had no luck so far!! I'm so eager and have been looking a lot. I love dogs and animals!:)
