For our service–In-Home Visits–the duration of each visit lasts anywhere from 30 – 45 minutes. When does the clock start? The minute we enter the door.
Our timing method might not be the same as some other pet sitters who charge for their time to the visit, as well as, time back to their respective “home base”. However, our particular 30 – 45 minute visit time is completely allotted to the animals that we’re servicing and is on-site time 🙂
Pet sitters aren’t all the same on how they arrive at their charges, their timing methodology and so forth. It’s neither good nor bad…some of us are just different from others.
When interviewing pet sitters, and if you’re wondering whether or not the entire visit time is completely on-site time, simply ask them. Don’t be afraid to.
