What is the policy on pets that bite?
I’ve just seen a listing about a bird that bites, and it “can be very painful” - I was interested til I read that part!
I am lucky not have been bitten so far by any pets I’ve sat for with THS, but recently I sat for a friend and her 1 year old dog bit me so hard it still hurts now, over three weeks later!
(he is a sweetheart, but hates it when you take anything off him, and wasn’t fully trained. So he bites as a knee-jerk reaction, then says Sorry by licking the bite better!)
I had plenty of layers, so he didn’t puncture me.
But one of my rules now is No Biting/Attacking the sitter in general!
Is there an official rule about this?
And do any sitters or HOs have any stories about pets biting?
