Summer’s coming – and that means vacation’s coming too! Yay! And you’ve got to make the reservations, pack, get that last-minute pedi, pack for your S.O./kids, try to find the travel charger…the lead-up to leaving on a trip can get stressful and disorganized in a hurry.

Scheduling and prepping for the pet-sitter can add another half-dozen hassles to your pre-flight checklist, but it doesn’t have to. By standardizing your pet-sitter prep so it’s the same each time you leave town, and creating easy-to-modify documents for reference, you can cross this task off your to-do list in just a few minutes – and reduce the stress level for you AND your animals.
