Pet Sitter Secrets: It’s All in the Trunk!

Being a professional pet sitter is a wonderfully satisfying job. You also learn quickly that being prepared keeps you ahead of the game if anything doesn’t go as planned! So how does a professional pet sitter do that when she’s on the road all the time? It’s all in the trunk.

I thought it entertaining naming this segment “Pet Sitter Secrets”; this won’t be a secret for long! It also shouldn’t be, we’re proud of our ability to be prepared for most things at the drop of a hat. With a good trunk organizational system to separate and hold what we need, we can find things easily; no stress, no hassle! Our collection was put together through years of practical experience, and we like to keep everything well stocked.

It's all in the trunk!

Although our Fear Free collection is for our own use when working with our special needs and medical needs pets, it’s a great list of items that you can also keep in your home! Whether it’s for a specific stressful event or you are working with your Fear Free Veterinary Clinic on beginning your pet’s stress-less experience at home, consider looking into these options.
