Prepare Your Home and Pet for Your Pet sitter

  • Ensure that there will be enough food, treats, kitty litter, etc. for the time you will be away.   If you run out Got To Go will replenish for you for your convenience. 
  • Let your pet sitter know where your dog's leash is kept.
  • If you have a carrier for your pet, let your pet sitter know where it is kept.
  • If your pet is on medication, notify your pet sitter ahead of time.
  • Leave detailed instructions on its use, even if you tell your pet sitter verbally how it's administered.
  • Put ID tags on each of your pets.
  • Provide outdoor pets with plenty of water, shelter, and a secure enclosure.
  • Leave toys for your pet to play with while you're away.
  • Let your vet know in advance that you will be out of town and that a pet sitter will be caring for your pets.
  • Complete your pets profile on our online scheduling and profile site. Some of these items are your pets feeding, care, vet and medication instructions. If any of these items have changed since our last visit it is very important to update the profile, call the office with this information or leave a note for the sitter.   
  • In case of an accident by your pet let us know where to find cleaning products and paper towels as well as any special care instructions for carpets or flooring. 
Prepare your home
  • Inform your pet sitter of anything that may be out of the ordinary (sinks that don't drain properly, toilet that overflows, etc.).
  • Show your pet sitter where the thermostat is and how to operate it. Be sure to leave it set at a comfortable temperature for your pets while you're gone.
  • If anyone will be in your home during your absence, let your pet sitter know. Because of safety concerns, many pet sitters will not enter a house if they see someone there.
  • For dogs that stay outdoors, secure the yard and lock any gates.
  • Potentially dangerous plants or decorations should be put somewhere that your pets won't be able to get to them.
  • In case of an accident by your pet let us know where to find cleaning products and paper towels as well as any special care instructions for carpets or flooring. 
  • If your pet sitter's first visit will be after dark, be sure to leave an outside light on.
Contact information

  • Prior to your departure, give your pet sitter information on how you can be contacted.
  • If you will not be able to be contacted while you're gone, be sure to provide the name and phone number of someone who will be able to make decisions on your behalf. This information will be placed in our profile system as an emergency contact.

I would like to take this opportunity to letting you know about our house waiting services.  Have you ever had to wait for a repairman or a delivery but you could not be home at the time they give you?  Well, Got to Go can wait for you.  We will wait and be there to accept the deliver or make sure the repair is complete.  This will save you time and you will have the comfort of knowing we took care of it for you. We look forward to helping you out!

How do I get started with Got To Go?

Great question!  We do a meet and greet first with each client before we start working together. At the meet and greet this is where you will have an opportunity to meet your primary pet sitter, get copies of our policies and insurance and bonding papers.  We will collect all your pet and home information.  What is important for us to know? EVERYTHING!  No detail is too much.  We are here to take care of your pets and your home and want to do it as you would do it yourself.  After the meet and greet, we will set you up with a username and password to access our online information system.  From here you can update your pet or home information any time and your sitter and the office will be notified of the changes. You can also book your appointment online as long as it is more than 26 hours.  If you prefer to speak to a person we can be reached from 8 am – 9 pm 7 days a week.  We look forward to meeting your pet soon!
