Sitters, do you like to diversify your sitting experiences or do you tend to specialize in one sort of sit, for example large dogs or horses?
Owners, do you prefer sitters with diverse animal sitting experiences or those who are specialized in one type of animal?
After seeing quite a few HO listings requesting “cat lovers” or “dog lovers”, I thought that owners would tend to prefer someone who is specialized.
This forum, however, has a wonderful way of opening my eyes to different viewpoints, like the one presented in another thread by @Düsenzofe. She wrote, “I confess I declined a perfect sounding sitter with 52 x 5* reviews on sits only with cats, because I didn’t want anybody “knowing better” than us how to treat our tom, who has several health issues.” It’s not something that I would have considered but it’s a valid point. Many thanks @Düsenzofe for sharing this particular observation. It made me think that I should try to diversify my sits.
