Dogsitter Pay - How Much
We have a dogsitter that has been taking care of our Golden Retriever while we are away for a couple of years. She spends the night, comes in at lunch and is here after work. We pay her $30/night and double for holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas day). When we were away this Thanksgiving and Christmas, we left our Havanese, Scout, for the first time. It had not occurred to me that she would want to be paid more for the second dog, but she says she stopped at the house more and it was extra duties. Any thoughts on what would be a fair amount for the second dog?
Also, does anyone else pay for overnight dogsitting? If so, how much?
