Hi Arjuna, i’m very surprised when an owner does not want to fill up the WiFi code, his full adress.
I’m sitting next month in Switzerland, the couple of HO did not give me these infos. Although they filled up the homebook after my request on phone and through THS Web site (it’s their 1st expérience)
I called them, explaining i would like to see the environnent on Google earth (a street can be long and very différent at numéros 1 or 336 )they answered it was for security reasons
As the home book is not public but visible only once a sit is confirmed, i found their answer strange, an obvious lack of trust.
They told me i needed to walk early their 5 months old puppy, around 5.30- 6a.m (to avoid pee or poo in their appartment) but there was a garden nearby. So far I could not check how close it is…
Once i will be gone, i will know their WiFi code and precise adress, so what’s the problem ?
“Have you a plan b?” could be a chapter
interesting to be filled
If for any reason the owner can’t come back the day he is supposed to (he missed his plane, he was involved in an accident, injuried, fell ill etc.)or if the sitter faces any emergency, needs to go back home before the decided date, what solution ?
Could the pets be given to somebody else ? Could a friend, a relative, be in charge ?
The owner, writing he is OK that the sitter keeps the dog (or the cat, etc.) In his home if there is no other solution, and if the sitter can do it, not living far, would be nice.
A vet, a refuge he knows could be a solution?
I asked my future owners if they miss their plane, can’t go back from abroad, if i was allowed to take their puppy to my home?
I don’t want to be accused to steal their pup ! I am ready ti help but i want them to pick up their pup. I don’t want to be obliged to drive her back…
the owners who have no relatives no friends, no help near them may ignore to whom they can give spare keys. That chapter remains blank .
Could THS suggest to buy and hide a keysafe somewhere ? It could be helpful
Precisions such as floor, lift (for flats), type of parking (public, private, free, exact price per day)
could be another information to be given by the HO
Distances between the vet clinic and the home, distances from the home and public transportation (sitters may not have cars)
Add a map?
