4 Things to look for when hiring a pet sitting company

If you own a pet, you want them to be treated in the best possible way, even when you are not around to do it yourself. A lot of people with a 9 to 5 job or those who love to travel a lot end up leaving their pet in the hands of a stranger to provide care for them. Because of this need, a lot of pet sitting companies have popped up in the past few years, giving pet owners the freedom to confidently leave their pets for even longer periods of time without fear of neglect. That being said, below are some of the top things to look for when hiring a pet sitting company;


While there are a lot of things you can afford to ignore, experience is not one of them. You need to inquire about the company's experience in pet sitting. How many years have they been in operation? Have they handled a pet like yours before? Do they have any experienced professional in training pets? Make sure to ask any applicable questions, and if not satisfied with the answers you may have to look for other alternatives. At the end of the day, you want to choose a company like Queen City Pet Sitting, which will deliver what it promises.

Services provided

When looking for your perfect pet sitter, you will want to know the services they offer. This is because pets vary, and you want to ensure that yours gets all the attention it needs, when it needs it. For instance, you may own a maltese while another client owns a pitbull. Each of these pets need different kind of care. Also, your pet may be used to a certain kind of lifestyle, and if so, will your pet sitter give it exactly that? If the kind of services offered are not the best for your pet, keep looking until you find the right company.


Also, before hiring your pet company, you will need to inquire about the fees they are charging. Is the amount you are paying amounting to the kind of services you will receive? Also, are the charges broken down into what the money is going to cover? With a clear breakdown of the fees, you will be confident about paying for the services, knowing exactly what your money will be used for.

Past clients

Another thing to consider is past clients. It is good to inquire for a list of past clients they have worked with. If you are able to talk to a few of these people, the better. This way, you will be able to know how the company has handled other clients in the past as it is a reflection of how you, and your pet are going to be handled. If the comments are negative, you may want to look for another pet sitter. The review record may not be perfect, but it should be close to that if you don't want future disappointments.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
