My first week as Tassuvahti

My first week as Tassuvahti

It’s the first day of the week and I happily headed for the first customer of the day, which was a meeting at Lauttasaari. I was a bit nervous because I had just started working at Tassuvahti, even though I have a background as a dog sitter of 14 years. Upon arriving, I was happy to see Toffe waving his tail and his owner. We walked around the nearby surroundings and talked about the upcoming four-day walks.

Tips for your dog’s first overnight care:

Have a meeting with the pet sitter. We offer a meeting with the pet sitter to all customers so that you and your dog can meet your pet sitter for the first-time face to face before care.

The meeting may be arranged either at the pet sitter’s home or at your own home.

Overnight care

Overnight care

The clock is approaching 18.00 on Tuesday evening and I have taken care of the last walk of the day. As I turn to my home street, there is already expecting my next client, a seven-year-old little, black, Mixed Breed dog named Malin. Her owners are old family friends of mine. They contacted me in the early fall, as they knew that many foreign trips would be coming up next year and they would need a pet sitter for Malin. I get along with me Malin’s care kit, which includes her food, rain jacket and all kinds of toys. We say goodbye and we go inside with Malin.
