My first sitting is live and it’s not going well. I got several applications and messages, but the the experience has not been pleasant. We did a virtual meet n greet with 7 applicants. 2 of them said they’ll bring their partners or kids (undisclosed in their profile). I declined because my dog has never been around kids, especially babies and toddlers. 1 person asked for a week to decide, another person said she plans to work as a night nanny for a couple nearby and “sleep all day,” another sitter said that he has never sat for a dog, only cats, another person asked if we they could use our car for 500 miles of exploring and travel and the final applicant wanted is in his 70’s and told us that his main reason for sitting was to be near his grown kids and he lacks the physical strength to take care of our dog, but maybe “he’ll be fine with fetch in the yard.”
It’s been a week and I am surprised at the lack of sitters. Feel free to check out my listing and provide any feedback as to why I am not attracting quality sitters.
