Format: Hardcover
I was extremely disappointed in this book. I am a professional pet sitter and I was looking for a handbook for a dog-sitter. Given its title, I believed I had found it. Not! This was a complete waste of my money. There is absolutely nothing useful in this book that even a beginning pet-sitter wouldn't already know.

This is a great book to hand to the Dog Sitter when you leave on a trip or vacation. I like the whole idea of this book and it is something I will use over and over. The author's knowledge of dogs is extremely accurate and her lively text is informative and helpful to the Dog Sitter AND dog owner! I especially appreciate the pages devotged to explaining your dog's peculiarities and just what the sitter needs to do when you are away. Also great tips on how/why dogs behave the way they do and good info on medical emergency care. All in all...a SUPER book to get for yourself and all your dog loving friends. You owe it to your dog!

If your pet sitter isn't asking about your pets needs and behaviors before agreeing to care for your pet, you're in trouble. As a pet sitter, having a client hand me their Dog Sitter's Handbook would be useless. Not only do I not have the time to read it, but I would already have asked all of these questions of the owner directly. The only use I can see to this book is if you are hiring a "free" pet sitter such as a neighbor or friend. Even so, it would be a lot easier for them if you wrote everything concisely on a single sheet of paper. And don't forget emergency phone numbers and directions to your vets office.

I read some of the other's reviews of this book. And it apparently was not what they were looking for. I can't understand why that is. What could be more important than a book that details your customer's fears regarding your services? Its a treasure trove of ideas for shaping your business and laser targeting your USP.
