I had her pay upfront but then she harassed me so bad I had to call the Sheriff.

We always pay up front. It is not that much... and we have been VERY fortunate to have the dog/horse sitter we do!

We're really fortunate to have a neighbor to care for Kiana when we're gone. The first time, she just said, "you can leave my fee on the kitchen counter", and that was that.

I agree with the signed contract part, but I'd never pay a sitter


I only accept cash. That way I can give a discount to my regular clients for their faithfulness. I prefer to gain clients by word of mouth instead of through online advertising, so have taken my ad offline. This helps me to get legitimate, non-fraudulant clients, and they are guarenteed good service, because my regular clients are referring new ones to me.

i get about upfront payments, however my pets are my life, if people don't do that good of a job i don't see any point in paying what they ask
