Pet Care Checklist

Keep track of your pet sitters.

Looking for a way to keep track of what your pet sitters or dog walkers do with your pets? Use the Pet Care Checklist to have your sitter tell you what they did with your animal while you were out. Keep track of feedings, exercise, health issues and more!

My name is Danie. I obtained my K9 Kindness license in 2004. I have found that keeping a brief, simple journal is appreciated by most customers. I also take a picture of the pets and add it onto an 8x11.5 page so that the customer can wtite a referenae for me after the job that includes their pets picture on that page that I keep in my binder for perspective customers to see. On seasonal jobs, I sometimes create greeting cards with the customers pets for them, and I have a special post card with my business logo on it to send to my customers. These are fun things to create and build relationships with your customers! Danie K9 Kindness

I love it! A comprehensive list... Thank you very much for that and the emergency list as well! What a relief to just have to print it out and use it. Great way to double-check, if you're not missing one thing or another... It will come handy! Thank you very much! Nicole R.
