Do your own due diligence

Each day you’re away, your pet sitter will be responsible for both your pet and your home, so it is important to choose a pet sitter carefully.

Portland Petsitters provides the information in this website as a courtesy referral, and businesses buy advertising space on the website.

Paid advertisers will be listed at the top of search results, but position does not reflect an endorsement of one business over another.

Don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions before hiring a pet sitter. The services offered, and the fees charged may vary widely. It is important to consider such issues as whether the pet sitter has commercial liability insurance, is bonded (if the company has employees), is willing to provide references and interacts well with your pet.

Portland Petsitters recommends that pet owners interview petsitters thoroughly and check references before hiring.
