How much to tip your dog walker or pet sitter?

Dog with money

A lot of our clients ask us this around the holidays. They are thankful for their pets being cared for and may be unsure how much to give to their pet sitter.

We tell clients to give what they feel comfortable with and that a tip is always appreciated but never expected.
Our pet sitters have told us in the past that they have received chocolate, gift cards, tickets and cash!

Is has been given as a rule of thumb 1-2 weeks pay of what you are paying for the service but rather than tell people what to give we think its best to leave it up to the individual as everyone has their own budget.
