As a pet owner, what can I do to prepare?

  • Make reservations with Pet Concierge Plus early, especially during holidays.
  • Ensure your pet is well socialized and allows strangers to handle him.
  • Affix current identification tags to your pet’s collar.
  • Maintain current vaccinations for your pet.
  • Provide clear instructions detailing specific pet-care responsibilities and emergency contact information, including how to reach you and your veterinarian.
  • Leave pet food and supplies in one place.
  • Buy extra pet supplies in case you’re away longer than planned.
  • Leave a key with a trustworthy neighbor as a backup, and give him and your Pet Concierge Professional each other’s phone numbers. Be sure those extra keys work before giving them out.
  • Show the  Pet Concierge Professional your home’s important safety features such as the circuit breaker and security system.
