Don’t ask the neighbor kid to watch your pets, home & belongings!



Pack Some Peace of Mind When You Travel

I don’t want to spend one moment worrying about things at home while I’m on vacation — not about the house, my dog, my plants, whether I left an appliance turned on that I shouldn’t have, or if a bill will be late if not paid before I get back.

I’ve been away on trips often enough and for long enough that I’ve learned a few things the hard way, so I wanted to write this article about how to take care of home while you’re away on vacation as a reminder — a checklist of sorts — both for me and for others. Many of these suggestions may be no-brainers, but sometimes, in the rush to get out the door or in our excitement about the trip, we can neglect to take care of them.

So take a few minutes before you close the door behind you to review and make sure you’ve done — or at least considered doing — the following to safeguard your house, your pets and plants, and your belongings….

Nothing screams, “We’re not home!” more than a bunch of mail stuffed in your box and a pile of newspapers on the stoop, so this is a must-do if you plan to be away for more than just a long weekend.

Having a professional pet sitter maintain your home and take care of beloved pets is a fantastic option. Your home will have a live-in look when Familiar Friend Pet & Home Sitting service is contracted to watch your home and pets.
