Insurance is a must for professional pet sitters.

What does a pet sitter do when:

  • a client’s hardwood floors are damaged due to a water-related accident?
  • a pet in her care dislocates its hip?
  • a dog swallows a ball at a dog park and requires surgery?
  • a cat overdoses on medication?

Be sure to take a look at 14 recent insurance claims from professional pet sitters to help ensure that these situations don't occur on your watch.
