Why Do I Need to Give my Pet Sitter 2 House Keys?

House KeysWhen signing on a new client we often get asked why do we require two sets of house keys? It may seem a little strange at first. After all, you only need one key to get into the house, right? But we know that sometimes things happen and it’s always good to have a backup plan.

In a nutshell, we need two sets of house keys for safety.

Your pet’s needs are our #1 concern. We are dedicated to making sure your pet is well taken care of while you are away. A second key is kept in the office as a fall back.

To make sure that no matter what your pet will be looked after.

Although unusual, there are some instances where the 2nd key will be needed, such as:

  • Your usual pet sitter is in an accident and can’t make it on time. (Don’t worry, she’s okay just a little shaken up)
  • The pet sitter accidentally gets locked out. (Those pesky bottom locks can get the best of anyone on a bad day)
  • They come down with the flu and can’t make it in no matter how hard they try to move. (Plus we don’t want those germs to spread!)
  • The key is lost or damaged. (It’s very unlikely, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared)
  • There is an emergency and someone needs to get there ASAP at an unscheduled time (Everyone is fine, it’s just a storm and the power is out, we want to make sure your pet is A-OK).

That is the major difference of a professional pet sitter and a friend or neighbor that checks on your pet. We are here solely to care for your loved ones. We know life can throw you curve balls, and that is why we make sure to have a contingency plan. Having two house keys will eliminate any worry from your day and you can trust that whatever the day throws at us, your pet is in good hands with Karla’s Pet Care.
