Woman Requires Insane Rules for Dog Sitter


Choosing a dog sitter can be a meticulous job, especially since you want to pick the right person to watch your precious pooch. One owner decided to get creative by crafting a list of all her demands for a dog sitter. Spoiler alert, it’s kind of crazy.

This pup owner released a list of 11 strict rules that is included with taking care of her dog, Zero, for the week. In the advert, she wrote: “Looking for an incredibly trustworthy and loving person to walk and feed Zero next week.

“They must: love dogs, love Zero, be able to walk him three to four times a day, be able to feed him twice a day and must be acclimated to Zero”.

Okay, so far, the list doesn’t sound like the worst thing in the world but it definitely gets worse. The dog walker “must be able to hold a roughly 130 to 140lbs dog pulling intensely on a leash because he is excited over other dogs and people, must be able to provide open communication about when you arrive, walk, feed him and leave, and must spam her phone with photos.”

Also, the dog sitter must sign a written agreement and would be “held liable if anything happens to Zero or our home and belongings.” To make things worse, she doesn’t include how much she’s willing to pay this saint for taking care of her pup.

Many Reddit users who saw the post figured the owner would most likely pull out of payment claiming the dog sitter broke their contract.

One user wrote: “Leave our stuff alone so you don’t know just how much s*** is already broken that we will claim worked like new and you are now responsible for.

“They are legitimately looking for someone to scam. Best case scenario the ‘damages’ you caused will magically be covered by whatever payment you agreed to. They will claim it’s worse than that but will call it even.”

Another user commented: “True, that seems like a great way to scam their way out of any payment (if they were even planning on offering any, I can’t tell).

“They actually just turned someone down who offered to watch the dog at their own apartment, so it’s looking even more like that could be the case.”
