The Pet Sitter Safety Checklist

A just-in-case emergency checklist for pet owners.

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!
