Owner told me another sitter offered to pay utilities?

If they can affford to travel, I think they can afford the electricity bill…

Everyone is different. For me I would never pay for utilities. Not only am I gifting you and your pets 24/7 care in a familiar environment, I am also maintaining your home and keeping your property secure. The savings and psychological benefit to the pet related to not having to send the pet/s to a kennel or cattery… we are talking hundreds of dollars a week. I can get paid over 100 to board a dog for a day… So if an owner doesn’t have the respect to pay for the basics like utilities, which are required for a sitter to do the task they are asked to do - for free - I have no interest in assisting them.
