Frequently Asked Questions
What is the advantage of choosing a professional pet sitter?
A professional pet sitter can give your pet the personal attention they need while you are away by visiting your home and spending time exclusively with your animals.
What vaccinations are required for your services?
Connecticut Pet Sitter, LLC only requests that dogs be up-to-date on rabies vaccinations in compliance with Connecticut state laws. If your pet has been exempt from receiving a rabies vaccination due to poor health or vaccine intolerance we ask that you provide a letter from your veterinarian stating that this is the case.
Who will my pet sitter be/how many employees does Connecticut Pet Sitter, LLC have?
Connecticut Pet Sitter, LLC is owned and operated by Christina Boling and her partner, Richard Jones. Immediate family will occasionally be brought on pet sitting visits and field trips for assistance (with permission) and in case of an emergency. This means that your keys and personal information will not be given to any independent contractors.

Yes! Our insurance though Pet Sitters Associates, LLC covers theft, damage, and other incidences that we hope will never occur. Bonding protects our clients against theft.
