Because of our own dog, we always travel by our own car. So transport is not a problem, we do not care about information about the surrounding area. We already know the approximate location from the map. We will take care in detail of that after we have accepted a sit. This is very easy today via the Internet. A few clicks and you know where to go.
What is important to me in the first place are information about the pets. Health condition (disabled, medication), usual or unusual behaviour patterns. Info about this you can never have enough.
Secondarily, info about the house. Preferably photos from the Kitchen, living room and our sitter room. How to Maintenance if it’s unusual in some way. Like heating, water or electricity. On or off-grid? Vegan household, yes or no.
And a must is a clear expectation from the HO what daily task is the sitter required to do.
Personal info about profession, religion, taste or other private things are not essential for us. Because the HO will not be in the house. So house and pets are most important.
If I want to know something I ask.
No, I would not accept, if I do not get all the info I need, even if I ask.
