In the event of an emergency

Posted on September 13, 2011 at 12:02 AM
Our recent blackout in San Diego brought something very important to mind that I want to share with you. As a pet sitter and dog walker clients expect me to care for their animals no matter what; and rightly so. In the last blackout, driving became a real problem as street lights were out and businesses all closed at the same time. Everyone wanted to get home and for some people it took hours to get to their destination. Fortunately, I was able to meet all of my client obligations as they were fairly close to me. If, however, I had a client's pet that I couldn't reach within an appropriate amount of time, I would like to be able to contact a neighbor of the client and see if they can let the dog out, take it for a potty break, or feed it, etc.  Every pet owner should have a neighbor they feel comfortable with and trust to give a key to their home and to ask to help out in an emergency. That neighbor's contact information should be given to the pet sitter or dog walker so they can call if they are unable to get to the animal in a timely fashion.. It may not always be possible to reach the neighbor or they may not be available but it would certainly be worth the effort to call them.
Think about which one of your friends or neighbors lives close enough to handle this role for you.
